Dealer Data: BlackBerry Leads Smart Phone Market
Apple’s iPhone, which has been on the market less than a year, now controls more than 19 percent of the domestic market for smart phones for the first quarter- a number that has actually dropped significantly from the period before. That’s according to an IDC vendor survey, cited in a report by the Associated Press.
The iPhone’s market share represents a drop from a figure of nearly 27 percent in the fourth quarter of last year. The BlackBerry, made by Research in Motion, holds the lead with 44.5 percent in the first quarter, followed by Apple, with Palm coming in third with 13.4 percent, thanks mostly to its Centro phone.
