Lying with pictures - Nokia, RIM and Microsoft more fucked than they looked




As steer and drplokta pointed out yesterday, the Nielsen diagram was grossly out of proportion, so it looked like RIM and MS were better than they were.

I passed the data to steer, who then played around with R (code is in the other post), and produced the second diagram. I've tried to line them up and proportion them with each other as best as I can. So you can now easily see how misrepresentative the original diagram was!

Edit:
Also - an even better one made by http://9to5mac.com/2012/07/13/nielsen-needs-to-work-on-their-graphics/
