Poor Old Blackberry
Android will take over 80% market share in mobile OSes this year, says IDC, with iOS on 14.8% share.
Microsoft will have 3.5% and poor old Blackberry will see its share fall below 1% – a measly 0.8%.
Last year Blackberry had 1.9% share.
IDC reckons Microsoft will increase share in future years, reaching 6.4% in 2018.
It thinks Android’s share will drop to 77.6% by 2018.
It thinks iOS will fall to 13.7% by 2018.
And it thinks poor old Blackberry will slip to 0.3% share.Tags: blackberry, market share, Microsoft
