iPhone passes BlackBerry in worldwide market share
It's not an earthshaking event, but the occasion should be marked. According to StrategyAnalytics, the iPhone has passed RIM (BlackBerry) as global smartphone shipments reached 77 million units in the 3rd quarter of 2010.
According to the report, the iPhone sold 14.1 million phones, while RIM moved 12.1 million. For RIM, the news gets worse, as the company dropped 16.1 percent in sales from the previous quarter. Nokia is still way out in front with 26.5 million sales, but it also dropped more than 3 percent while the iPhone was up 18.3 percent.
Recently, RIM CEO Jim Balsillie got into a nasty back and forth with Steve Jobs, after Jobs heaped scorn on the upcoming 7" BlackBerry tablet product as 'dead on arrival.' Balsiille responded that people are 'getting tired of being told what to think by Apple.'
