There’s not much news on the mobile front. Safari and Others win a point; Android and BlackBerry lose one. This is the first time Android has ever lost even a tiny bit of market share. As to BlackBerry, it’s clearly shedding market share every month. Safari climbs a bit and thus widens the gap with Opera.
