Despite Android Sales, Apple Dominates the Mobile Web (and No One Uses Blackberries Anymore)

This is most of what you need to know about the fortunes of RIM, the maker of the Blackberry, and Apple, the maker of money. They come from a new report on mobile web usage by the analyst firm, Chitika

RIM, which used to dominate the computer-in-your-pocket market has been in a death spiral for the last several years. This chart just shows how little life the company has left: One percent mobile web share. ONE PERCENT!

While the RIM chart is expected, Apple's increase in market share is fascinating. After all, Apple's core mobile browsing products -- the iPhone and iPad -- were in the market long before September 2011. More importantly, Apple has a strong smartphone operating system competitor in Android, which now has a majority market share in phone *sales*. But as we've pointed out before: iOS is a usage catalyst. People use Apple products more than they use other companies' similar-looking products. The screens may look the same, but people don't use them the same way.
