Blackberry Users: Get With Apple/Android or Get Lost!

 

 

Google and Apple continue to dominate the  smartphone market, while RIM and Microsoft continue to slowly diminish.

According to new data from comScore, 82.2 million people in the U.S. owned a smartphone as of July 2011, a full 10% increase from April 2011. Google is the market leader with 41.8% market share (up from 36.4% in April), while Apple is number 2 with 27% market share (up from 26%).

News you can use:

RIM’s BlackBerry was the big loser, as its piece of the smartphone market dropped from 25.7% to 21.7% in just three months.

comScore also reports that 234 million Americans 13 and older use some type of mobile device, whether it’s a smartphone or not. Among the entire smartphone market, Samsung is the leader with a 25.5% share of U.S. mobile subscribers. While Apple is forth with 9.5% of the total market, an increase of 1.2% since April. RIM rounds out the top five at 7.6%.

Among these 234 million mobile Americans, more of them are using their phones for a variety of tasks. A full 70% of U.S. mobile subscribers are texting, up 1.2% from April. About 40% use their phones for web browsing (up 2%) and 40.6% have used a downloaded app (up 2.8%). Social networking (30.1%), playing mobile games (27.8%) and listening to music (20.3%) are all up as well.

If you’re still using a Blackberry for anything other than work-related emails (shame on you…) WHY?
