    According to IDC, Blackberry has the 0.4% of 2014 operating system global market share.
    I have BB by choice (I have used Android and iOS). Yes, I would love to see more native apps, directly from the companies, but I love more the flow of BB10. I also like new paradigms (Passport), and the community.

    Android*pushed past the one billion unit mark in 2014, a significant milestone by itself but also because total Android volumes in 2014 bested total smartphone volumes in 2013. Samsung retained the leadership position by a wide margin, shipping more volume than the next five vendors combined. At the same time, Samsung's total volumes for the year remained essentially flat while Asian vendors including Huawei, Lenovo (including Motorola), LG Electronics, Xiaomi, and ZTE fueled the most growth for Google's platform.

    iOS*saw its market share for 2014 decline slightly even as volumes reached a new record and grew at nearly the same pace as the overall smartphone market. Much of this was due to the strong demand for Apple's new and larger iPhones and the reception they had within key markets. What remains to be seen is how Apple will sustain demand going forward, as larger screens were among the last gaps in its product portfolio.

    Windows Phone*had the smallest year-over-year increase among the leading operating systems growing just 4.2%, well below the overall market. Having finalized its acquisition of Nokia in the spring of 2014, Microsoft relied primarily on a long list of entry-level Lumia devices to maintain its position in the market, and relied on its partners HTC and Samsung to provide cover on the high-end of the market. With the launch of Windows 10 later this year, Windows Phone stands to make a more concerted effort to return to the high end of the market.

    BlackBerry*posted the only year-over-year decline among the leading operating systems, falling -69.8% from 2013 levels. 2014 marked a year of rationalization for the beleaguered platform, and by the end of the year the company had revealed multiple enhancements to its platform and new device additions with the BlackBerry Passport and BlackBerry Classic. CEO John Chen anticipates 10 million units will be shipped in 2015, returning the company to profitability and marking a 72% increase over the 5.8 million units shipped in 2014.

    But I like your post, we are the 0.4% and we should wear that proudly!

    I wonder how much of that 0.4% is even BB10 devices. Probably less than half. If only the world would just give BB10 a chance, they would see how great it is.

    And there you have it. A Billion dollar company, in a hugely competitive market, still in the game amongst 4 of the world's very biggest companies. Not bad I'd say. Could it be better,...always. But to be in the game with the others. Nice.
    Biker gang members wear 1%er patches. Maybe I could get a BB%er patch.
    One day I may have to patch over, but not until I have to. I'm secure and happy.(PS, having fun w/10.3.1.)

    I think that the only problem is that in customer's head, "blackberry" still reflects BB os7... everyone who sees my z30 asks me which OS does it run (most of them think that it's android). Unfortunately, no communication at all from BlackBerry. And here is the result. So sad when you realize how great BB10 is...
    Come on BlackBerry! Next step must be hiring a strong marketing team!!!

    These stats is base on device shipments not true market share.
    I wonder what the current in use market share is and what the decline rate is for Blackberry.
