This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Overall, Blackberry OS (with 31%) is the most popular smartphone operating system out there, but it has been steadily declining since February (when it has 37% market share) according to Neilsen’s stats, with iOS staying about the same (currently at 28%), and Android with an 11% increase in OS market share since the beginning of the year to its current market share of 19%.
