RIM's market share is now 44%

Research In Motion (RIM) is making great strides in the consumer market, according to a recent report from ABI Research. A year ago Palm's 33 percent market share was equal to RIM's share of the market, but now RIM claims 44 percent. Palm has only 24 percent now.

"RIM has successfully crossed over into the consumer market with handsets such as the Pearl," said analyst Shailendra Pandey at ABI. "But as smartphones overtake PDAs, Palm has stumbled. They've been slow to introduce new devices."
