BlackBerry On Verizon: Getting Smoked By Android

A little over a year ago, BlackBerry made up 9 per cent% of smartphone sales at Verizon. Now? They've dropped down to less than 20 per cent, with Android taking over the rest. It's crazy.

In the chart from ITG Investment Research, you can correlate the date of when each manufacturer boosted its share with a specific device: Motorola with the original Droid, HTC with the Eris and Incredible, Samsung with the Fascinate, etc. Contrast that with BlackBerry where any new release just continues this embarrassing downward trend.

And to think, what would happen to BlackBerry if/when Verizon gets the iPhone. BlackBerry is in trouble and their CEO should realise it. [AllThingsD]
