Solutions Research Group out of Toronto performed a survey of 1,000 Canadians and found that market share for RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook has tripled since the fall. They found that it went up from 5% in the fall of last year to 15% now. This jump is most definitely caused by RIM’s drastic price cuts to the PlayBook prices along with anticipation building for OS 2.0 this month. In other words it seems like RIM is making the most of the $485 million charge that they took on their earnings from PlayBook inventory and building market share with it. Now they just need to keep on plowing forward with some serious follow through.
