Research from Strategy Analytics reported during the third quarter of this year, there were 15.4 million iPhones shipped globally, while the BlackBerry is only 12.4 million units.
With higher numbers, the iPhone managed to reach 15.4 percent market share during that period and the BlackBerry only reap 12.3 percent of the existing market share. But compared to two of these phones, Nokia continued to sit in the highest position and reach 26.5 percent market share worldwide.
According to Strategy Analytics, one of the causes of the difficulty of the development of BlackBerry phones due to the high demand for touchscreen phones. But analysts from GigaOM, Darrell Etherington says the BlackBerry is not really losing market share.
Although already making breakthroughs such as the BlackBerry Torch released a QWERTY keyboard and touch screen, an analyst with Northern Securities, Sameet Kanade, predicted difficult times for the RIM is not going to end. "The gap between the RIM and the two main competitors in the consumer market is increasing every quarter," he said.
