BlackBerry's smartphone market share plunges to 0 percent

BlackBerry 10 now at below 0.0% market share.

    Is it the demise of BlacBerry? Well, it could be, because according to Gartner a technology research firm, BalckBerry just hit 0.0481 percent market share in the fourth quarter of 2016. The report shows that BlackBerry was able to sell only 207,900 BlackBerry 10 devices around the world throughout the last quarter.

    More significantly, BlackBerry 10's market share dropped from 377,800 device sales (0.1 percent) reported from the third quarter of last year.

    This could also be because BlackBerry has been shifting its focus from making its own phones and concentrating instead on services and software. Just to recall, the company has already signed a deal with TCL a Chinese tech company who will now be manufacturing the BlackBerry android devices.

    While this is the case with BlackBerry and now achieving almost 0.0 percent market share, it looks like TCL will have to start from scratch.
