    "BlackBerry OS dropped from a barely noticeable 0.5 percent to 0.2 percent share while Windows fell from 2.8 percent to 1.1 percent, despite the launch of new Windows 10 smartphones. Seems folks are moving on, and BlackBerry obviously knows this with its foray into Android with the excellent BlackBerry Priv smartphone." Windows Phone and BlackBerry OS are fading into nothingness

    Thought it was interesting, to me BlackBerry seems steady at 0.2% market share hasn't dropped for a while. Microsoft dropped 1.6% though, even with all there money they can't get a good grip on the smartphone business either.

    Thanks for posting this. I can't be the only person concerned by saturation of Android and ios in the cell phone market. Soon they will be the only options in North America. I just wonder when people will get bored of having the same phone as everyone else and start looking for something different?

    I think the "same phone as everyone else" pill is easier to swallow for iPhone users because they have tons of different cases, and it's easier for Android people to swallow because there are many different manufacturers that make Android phones, not just one.

    Good thing we have BlackBerrys though...we don't have to worry about someone else having one too haha

    At this point, third place will be fractions of a percentage anyway.

    Exclusiveness. Yay.
    And not long ago I even bought a PlayBook. Lol. But it's useful for my business, though. That's all that matters.

    Can this really be right?

    Only 2 out of every 1000 smartphone users are using a BlackBerry? And this is BB10 and BBOS combined?

    That's just shockingly low. It's definitely not like that in my city (Vancouver).

    Yes, because BB boosted the Android market share with the Priv. If the Priv were BB10, they might be at a respectable 0.55%... who knows...

    I always wonder if those numbers are for American market only, or worldwide. I've seen a good number of BB10 device where I live, but almost no Windows phone.

    These particular numbers are worldwide.

    If you are seeing BB10 phones in the wild, where do you live? Canada?

    I'm in the UK and in the two years that I've owned my Z30 I've only seen one Z10 and one other Z30.

    Several BBOS devices owned by work colleagues though.

    Both companies share something: Silicon Valley bean counter CEOs who lack vision and aren't willing to commit resources to their respective mobile platforms.

    Microsoft has committed an awful lot of money over 2 decades now on their mobile platforms. I don't know how much more they could have done.

    Are you saying they should pour even more money into this? Would that really help?

    I'm in the US, and in the almost 3 years I have had my Q10, I have only ever seen 3 other BB10 phones. Despite popularity in some small areas, the lack of BlackBerry phones in other large areas makes these numbers very believable.

    It's easy for some to blame an individual.

    While I am unhappy with the low BlackBerry numbers, it's clear from John Chen's repeated statements that the consumer market is not BlackBerry's current focus.

    (Maybe it never was...)

    Yep. BlackBerry has lost its identity. It is drowning in a sea of android irrelevance.
