Because they are two different charts. The first one is for USA only. The second is worldwide. (see post #48)

Reportedly Apple shares App Store revenues with some carriers. No idea how much.
I do remember a report or two sometime back that the reason China Mobile has so far refused the iPhone was because they insist on Apple sharing app revenue with them and Apple so far declining..

Never? Blackberry has been around a lot longer than either Android or the iPhone, so your statement is clearly wrong.
Even ignoring that, the charts above show that BB had a very significant market share at one point. The Gartner data puts it at around 40% and the other charts show 15-50% (not sure why the discrepancy). In any event, at one time, Blackberry WAS a major player in the smartphone market.

Before you call him clearly wrong, you need to learn basic math. There are hundreds of millions of Androids out there. Are u saying most of them used to be BB users?
You cannot compare percentages when talking about dramatically different market sizes - basic math. He's not clearly wrong. You are.
