    Wow; Blackberry is now in the negligeable “others” category.. WHat a shame.

      I hope this isn’t a surprise to you. This has been coming down the pipe for over 5 years now.

      Window’s phone was once that low also. 😉

    • Jeffry

      I agree.. I think Windows phone can be classified as others since it is under 5 %.. lol

      Blackberry should’ve skinned Android. Android plus secure comms.

      They’re slowly getting there with BB 10.2.1, but it may be too late. OTOH, may survive as a totally different sort of company, the way IBM did…

    • whatever

      what are you talking about
      guys on here are panning the skinned version of the Nokia
      BB just has to focus on being the business customer that wants a touch keyboard which was their core customer, then grow it back out with new features

      Not surprising. Where’s Palm now?

    Daniel you’re such a Google groupie in everything you do. Using basic math rules the Android, iOS and WP 2013 numbers all should have been rounded up. But you rounded up Android but rounded iOS and WP down lol.

    Shipped also doesn’t mean sold. The firesales of touchpads and playbooks should have taught everyone that lesson.

    No question android owns the vast majority of marketshare, no matter how you slice it. Shame no one but Samsung can find a way to make money at it.

      Sammy is the only one who spends on advertising.

    I’m always annoyed by shipped smartphone stats. What’s actually being used?!
