I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about the US smartphone market and in particular RIM (I may go buy a T-Mobile Curve 8900 soon) so it was quite timely when I read the excellent article from Michael Mace titled Watch out for RIM.

The latest Gartner worldwide numbers show that RIM is number two, behind Nokia, with almost double the market share of Apple. I haven't seen any US specific numbers, but with the long history of BlackBerry devices here in the US I imagine their market share percentage in the US may be even great than double that of Apple.
