As many of you know I run a little channel called The Gif Exchange. I was looking through the analytics for the first time in a about three months and noticed the Android user portion of my subscription base has increased drastically while the iOS tally has only grown a few percent. So it would appear Android users are really taking an interest in BBM as well as BBMC. Lets have a look at the numbers;
Android users make up 28% of the userbase, BB10 users make up a little less than half at 46%, BBos makes up a measly 6% (understandably because my channel is very data heavy), and iOS is at 8%. I am unsure why there is an unknown category and why BBMC can’t recognize the platform these users are on. I have also noticed a spike in Indonesian users, could this be Z3 related? Possibly. Or it could be BBM is catching on with Android users at a quick pace. It is definitely a good sign to see Android users on BBMC in growing numbers, it’s good for the BlackBerry brand and one day these BBM users could be BB10 users.
