Blackberry maker RIM is the only winner in the latest cellphone sales numbers increasing their market share to 5% and becoming the 5th biggest seller of phones in the US.

Overall sales of cellphones in the US dropped 22% year on year but there was an interesting trend of high-end phones increasing in sales while inexpensive basic phone lost market share: 17% of all phones sold were smartphones, 60% of all phones sold could play music, and 79% of phones had bluetooth (all the better to track you with).
