Android Surges While the iPhone Stalls Out

The latest smartphone subscriber numbers are out, and the last three months have been kind to Google. Android's still a relatively small player, but its usage base more than doubled since October. The iPhone, meanwhile, keeps on treading water.

RIM remains the leader in the smartphone space, with nearly half the market using BlackBerries. Apple's 25.1% share is undeniably impressive, but only growing .3 percentage points (relative to the market) means this summer's impending iPhone 4 release can't come soon enough for Cupertino. Either that or a whole mess of patent lawsuit wins.

The losers, predictably: Palm, whose business model is collapsing before our eyes, and Microsoft, whose sitting duck WinMo 6.5 OS is in the process of being totally scrapped.

Oh my god will someone just kill RIM already?

My mother just got a brand new BB a month ago because her job's software can't support anything else.

The longer I try to help her use it (she is tech savvy) the more my rage at RIM and all the people who actually like BBs grows.

Worst interface. Worst apps. Worst browser. Worst calendar. Worst Google sync. I want to drown every BlackBerry in Worcestershire sauce because they are the fucking worst and that would make them marginally more palatable.
