Cyanogen claims more users than Windows and BlackBerry combined using slick wording Speaking at Seattle Code Rush, mobile operating system startup Cyanogen has made some bold claims.
The company said its operating system now has "more users than Windows Mobile and Blackberry combined," a nice subtle slight of hand since Windows Mobile died in 2010 and was replaced by Windows Phone.

Cyanogen now claims over 50 million users, compared to under 40 million for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile. Windows Phone on the other hand, has near 80 million users and is the third largest mobile OS on the planet.

Regardless, the milestone is huge for Cyanogen as the company looks to disrupt the Apple/Google monopoly that has become the smartphone industry.
