iPhone 4 Ousts BlackBerry For Top Spot
Strategy Analytics, a company in market in research consulting, has stated that the iPhone 4 has knocked the Blackberry Bold 9700 off the top as the most popular phone in the market. Holding this position for over a year, Research in Motion (RIM) could not handle the iPhone 4s sales worldwide. The iPhone 4 in the first quarter sold more smartphones than any other company ever.
As Apple's iOS and Google's Android are continuing the skyrocket in market share, RIM's Blackberry is being left in the dust. Although RIM does have three of the top ten models, the Blackberry Bold 9700 plummeted to sixth place in this last round. This is the first time in three years that RIM has not had a model in the top three.
With this at hand, it is crucial for RIM to release some redesigned devices for the business and personal market. Research shows that even RIM is losing out in the business market to other devices even though it has remained leader for most of its existence.
