Android takes over BlackBerry, leaves no prisoner!

Android killed blackberry

Investment research firm ITG has been investigating the sales figures from Verizon Wireless and it has come up with a pretty interesting find:

If you create a graph with brown, orange and dark yellow colors – no one will be able to read it.

But, if you take a closer look, you will find that it's hard to miss RIM's huge drop while LG, and Samsung enjoy a nice climb… or is it HTC… oh wait, no, it's Motorola…

According to the research, in October of 2009, BlackBerrys accounted for 93% of Verizon Wireless’ smartphone sales. Just over one year later, in November of 2010, Android accounted for 80% of Verizon Wireless’ smartphone sales and BlackBerry’s share comes in at under 20%.

Amazing.

I am not very surprised that the Android is selling so well, but I am shocked that the Android accounted for 80% of Verizon Wireless’ smartphone in just one year. This proves the Android is way more popular than the Blackberry.

I'm not surprised. Android is the most open platform today and Blackberry makes net today on its tablets, Playbook to be exact.

Wow the android did own blackberrys. I'm kind of sad to hear the android is doing so well because a worker said that verizon doesn't want a contract with apple. Due to the success that the android is bringing in verizon feels it can do without the i phone.

The theme is fine in your website & it is well maintained by you, I cannot make my site nice with its appearance, the trouble is with the theme, I am looking for a chilled theme but free of charge.

I previously seen plenty of sites working with such topics, for the most part of the people duplicate other site content, but each time to your site I see new & first-class stuff, nice walking.

Looking at the number of mobile phones being launched on Android OS it was very clear that soon its going to be the number 1 mobile OS in the market. I think 2011 is the year of Android. I think being an open source OS is a huge advantage for Android.
