Today, Canadian mobile phone maker BlackBerry celebrates one year since the official launch of BlackBerry 10, but things are looking gloomier than ever for the company.

According to a recent report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), the market share of its mobile platform is almost 0 percent in the United States, as BGR reports.

While Android (46%) and iOS (48%) are leading the flock, Windows Phone comes in third with only 3 percent market share, but BlackBerry is almost non-present on the chart. According to CIRP, the OS is part of the 3 percent market share that no-smartphone platforms enjoy in the country.

“This analysis features findings about consumer trends in mobile phone operating systems from October-December 2013,” the firm noted. “Windows, Blackberry, and non-smartphones each accounted for less than 3% of activations in this sample,” it added.
