The platform is nearing extinction in one of the largest markets out there
Today, Canadian mobile phone maker BlackBerry celebrates one year since the official launch of BlackBerry 10, but things are looking gloomier than ever for the company.According to a recent report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), the market share of its mobile platform is almost 0 percent in the United States, as BGR reports.
While Android (46%) and iOS (48%) are leading the flock, Windows Phone comes in third with only 3 percent market share, but BlackBerry is almost non-present on the chart. According to CIRP, the OS is part of the 3 percent market share that no-smartphone platforms enjoy in the country.
“This analysis features findings about consumer trends in mobile phone operating systems from October-December 2013,” the firm noted. “Windows, Blackberry, and non-smartphones each accounted for less than 3% of activations in this sample,” it added.
