BlackBerry vs. iPhone vs. Android: There’s a New No. 2 Smartphone

Jun 6, 2011  •  Post A Comment

There’s a shakeup in the rankings among the three most popular smartphones, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Technology blog.

The BlackBerry line of devices is no longer the country’s second-most-popular smartphone, as Apple’s iPhone has taken a bite out of its market share, according to the story.

The iPhone had a 26% market share at the end of April, while Research in Motion’s BlackBerry line had a 25.7% share, down from 30.4% in the three-month period ended Jan. 31, according to a report from research firm ComScore.

Phones based on Google’s Android platform are in the lead with a 36.4% share of the market, the article notes.

About 74.6 million consumers in the U.S. own a smartphone, representing a 13% jump from the end of January, the story adds.
