BlackBerry Beating Out iPhone in the UK With 22.3% Market Share

Comments

UK playbook

BlackBerry is still doing really well in the UK with a 22.3% market share compared to iPhone’s 18.3%. Android is doing outstanding with a 45.2% market share. Also of interest, it seems 85 percent of new BlackBerry sales came from customers that had previously used conventional phone handsets, with the majority of upgraders being women. It seems that low price points and the unmatched QWERTY keyboard make BlackBerry an obvious choice for new smartphone users. Once RIM releases its high-end, dual-core QNX device, the company will have a nice smartphone portfolio that covers the gamut of users.

    if bb blog sites took their heads out of their usa arses then they will release that everything is fine with RIM and will be for a long time!

    8520 and 9300′s are everywhere! cheap and easy to use smartphones are what the younger market wants and seems to buy. older users buy the 97xx or torch!

    simple business plan that works! – not everyone wants or cares about QNX super phones

    This is what happens when the 9800 is available on all carriers. BB is doing fine in countries like the UK and Canada, but are struggling in the US where they only offer their touchscreen phone on 1 of the 4 carriers.
