This chart from StatCounter, posted by WMPoweruser, shows the market share of smartphones running BlackBerry OS vs. Windows Phones. It’s actually quite surprising: Projecting the trend of both platforms forward a few months, Windows Phone will actually overtake BlackBerry this year, sometime in November 2012.
That would be an impressive milestone for Windows Phone considering it will be almost exactly two years after its U.S. launch in November 2010 that it leapfrogs one of the smartphone brands that helped define the category. At the time, BlackBerry was at the top of the mobile food chain with 34.3% of the market,StatCounter says, and Windows Mobile (the predecessor to Windows Phone) wasn’t even a blip on the radar.[/box]
The surprise here is how far and fast Blackberry has fallen. The Windows Phones has had little traction in the smartphone market but is still about to over take Blackberry. Wow![button link=”http://mashable.com/2012/08/20/windows-phone-vs-blackberry/” type=”big” newwindow=”yes”] Source[/button]
