According to StatCounter, the install base for BlackBerry continues on a downward trend. If we’re being honest, it’s a complete freefall, with the percentage dropping from roughly 6 percent to 3-plus percent in week 31 of 2012. During the same timeframe, Windows Phone has seen slow and steady growth – emphasis on slow. The trajectory of BlackBerry coupled with the movement of Windows Phone has these two meeting around November of this year.
There was a definite bump, which you have to equate with the launch of the Nokia Lumia 900. With Windows Phone 8 around the corner and current phones not supporting the new update, you have to believe there are a good number of folks on the sideline. With a strong portfolio and some sooner than later ship dates, perhaps in a few months, we’ll be talking about these charts in a completely different fashion. It’s also worth noting that BlackBerry sales are also in a bit of a standstill as the company tries to ship BlackBerry 10.
