    Android Phones Take Over Verizon: Report


    Android phones from Verizon: (L-R) DROID 2 by Motorola,
    DROID PRO by Motorola, DROID X by Motorola, DROID Incredible
    by HTC, Motorola CITRUS. (Courtesy of Verizon Wireless)

    Android phones are dominating Verizon Wireless, notably against Blackberry smartphones, says a new report published last week, according to the All Things Digital blog.

    The report said that the Google Android OS is dominating the Verizon smartphone market. Around 80 percent of smartphones that have Verizon as a carrier are Android-based in the third quarter of this year.


    Of that 80 percent, 46 percent was the Droid phone manufactured by Motorola.


    Blackberry phones had a 90 percent share in the third quarter of last year. Now, RIMís flagship smartphone has fallen to 19 percent of the Verizon market, according to MSNBC.


    "The decline is led by the lack of a Storm refresh, dwindling sales of the Tour/Bold series, and a failure of the new Curve 3G to yet replace diminishing sales of the Curve 8530," ITG telecom analyst Matthew Goodman stated, according to MSNBC.


    All Things Digital noted that the BlackBerry will probably never regain its foothold in the Verizon market.

    Makes sense to me, Blackberry OS sucks in comparison to both Android and iOS.

    I had a bbstorm (the first version) as my first smart phone. Long storry short it sucked! It was soooo slow! After 3 months with it I wanted my razor back. Although I can't complain with the service. That stupid thing always had bars! Anyway got the droid x now a love it! Never going back! Even got my dad to get off his bb curve and get the new droid biz phone from Verizon!

    Sent from my DROIDX using DroidForums App

    My first smartphone was a BB 8350. It didn't hold a candle to the droid 2 I currently own . . .

    ... good catch. This is a shame... especially since it's 46% of Verizon owned Droids.
