Statcounter’s November 2013 statistics show that BlackBerry is the most popular mobile operating system in South Africa, followed by Series 40 and Android.

Despite a decline in popularity over the last year, BlackBerry showed some growth in November 2013.

BlackBerry’s mobile OS market share of 36.46% is significantly higher than Android’s market share of 13.52% and iOS’s 2.9%.

These statistics loosely correspond with Vodacom’s latest statistics which show that the company had 3.1 million BlackBerry devices on its network.

Android devices on the Vodacom network grew to 1.45 million, while there were 650,000 iOS devices.

The following graph shows the mobile browser market share in South Africa over the last twelve months.
