A new report has come out from comScore called “MobiLens”, which brings up to date information for Canadian market share in the mobile markets. The results are pretty much opposite what we would see if looking at a US report. Maybe it’s because we love Canadian companies homegrown for support, like RIM. Also, BlackBerry devices were the first to launch smartphones in Canada, long before the iPhone or Android came about.

RIM has an astonishing 42% share, followed by Apple’s 31%, then Android’s meager 12.2% share. Of note, Microsoft has 5% and Nokia with ^%, but that will eventually converge and grow as Nokia starts pushing WP7 devices and dumps MeeGo and Symbian. The US sees the opposite with Android leading, followed by Apple, then RIM. For more info on this report, click here.
