RIM’s Share of the U.S. Smartphone Market Slips Again

ComScore has published its latest report on the U.S. smartphone market and, as expected, the numbers look pretty grim for Research In Motion. Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android continue to bleed the BlackBerry of share in the States.

For the three-month period ending in November, RIM’s share of U.S. smartphone subscribers fell to 16.6 percent from 19.7 percent. That’s a 3.1 point change from August, and another nasty decline for RIM, which continues to struggle against subscriber losses in the U.S.

Meanwhile, the BlackBerry-maker’s misfortune continues to be its rivals’ gain. For the same period, iOS’s market share rose 1.4 percentage points to 28.7 percent, and Android’s to 46.9 percent from 43.8 percent.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
