RIM’s Taking the Lead with 42% Smartphone Market Share in Canada


Despite the negative publicity that RIM has been having, RIM’s BlackBerrys are the most popular smartphones in Canada, ahead of devices from rivals Apple Inc. and Google Inc., according to a new report on the Canadian mobile industry from market research firm ComScore Inc.

RIM’s BlackBerry devices accounted for 42% of all smartphones in Canada in March, followed by Apple with 31% and Android with 12.2%. Nokia Corp.’s Symbian operating system finished in the No. 4 with 6.4% while Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Phone software now powers 5.1% of Canadian smartphones. (Barely existent in the market.)

I bet everyone at RIM Canada celebrating right now, that’s why they are handing out RIM wear to all of their employees. (I am jealous! The blogger should get some too)
