Shock: Windows Phone overtakes BlackBerry as America's third biggest mobile OS in Q4 2012

Shock: BlackBerry loses their #3 mobile OS position in the US to Windows Phone in Q4 2012

Now that RIM has evolved into just being called BlackBerry, we have some interesting news just days after - Microsoft's Windows Phone platform expanded to see more mobile OS market share in the US in Q4 2012.

The data comes from Strategy Analytics, but there's a very big point to push here - Microsoft had released Windows Phone 8 late last year, while RIM (now BlackBerry) at the time were still working on BlackBerry 10, which was only released in the last couple of days. The more interesting thing will be to see how things go in the next quarter, where BlackBerry will either sink or swim.
