NEW YORK, N.Y. - Canada's own BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (TSX:RIM) has fallen out of the top five ranking of smartphone makers based on market share, research group IDC said Friday. "Research In Motion's BlackBerry unit decline continued last quarter, reaching levels not seen since 2009," it said in the report. "Like Nokia, RIM is a company in transition. Smartphones running on its new platform, BB 10, will be released later this year. Until then, results like these may be a sign of things to come." RIM has been working to turn around operations after watching its market share eroded by the growing popularity of Apple's iPhone and smartphones running Google's Android operating system. The company hopes the debut of its BlackBerry 10 operating system and a new line of BlackBerry smartphones will help keep its subscribers from defecting to other devices, particularly in the United States.
