Mobile Platforms Stackup Graph

Despite the fact that BlackBerry has been around the longest and Android devices have begun dominating the market, they still have trouble contending with the big name players. Looks like Microsoft's rebranding from Windows Mobile to Windows Phone hasn't really hurt them either. And since it's release in early 2007, the iPhone still dominates.

Based on the results, iPhone is clearly the best compared to the other choices.

Also, it looks like Android and BlackBerry are a lot worse than average. At least there's some room for improvement.
