BlackBerry 10 OS
At the top position in the smartphone OS market, it must be Android of Google or IOS of Apple. They are expected to top the list in 2013 too. But Microsoft's Windows phone and BlackBerry 10 are also gearing up this year, as per the reports. Few days before, BlackBerry launched its new phone which works on BlackBerry 10 OS. BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Q10 and few more models are releasing in the coming days in American markets.
But, ABI research says that within the end of 2013, a total of 200 Lakhs BlackBerry phone will be sold. As the report says, this year in the market of smartphones, BlackBerry has a total contribution of about 1.4%. Smartphones working on Windows 8 have 3.2% contribution in the market, which means a total of 450 lakhs windows phones will be sold this year. Within the end of 2013, the total number of smartphones used in the world will cross 140 crores. With the total of 57% Android phones will be at the top level this year(Approx 79.8 crore Android phone will be sold). And iPhone's contribution will be of about 21%(Approx 29.4 crore iPhone will be sold).
By looking into the market of smartphones, it is easy to understand that BlackBerry has much less contribution. But considering getting such a response in the first year of its release, it's a great acheivement.
