But they don't have to. You can run a company on 79 million users if you keep them happy.

re: Windows Phone Tops BlackBerry In U.S.
This sounds dubious to me. MS had sold 4.2 million Windows Phones as of Dec. 10th. At that time RIM had a customer base of 79 million. Without seeing the report we have no way of knowing what they were measuring. If they were measuring Windows Phone 8 against the Z10 then it would make sense. But if Blackberry gets a third of their users on the new platform they'll likely eclipse Windows Phone 8 by a wide margin.

What a dumb comparison! Windows Phone 8 came out last year while Blackberry announced new product to come early this year. Of course the numbers for Blackberry will be low. Not much of an accomplishment to top that.

re: Windows Phone Tops BlackBerry In U.S.
In the article they stated, "Apple and Google will continue to tussle for the smartphone crown for some time to come.", but right now Google's Android has about 4 times as many users as Apple, so where is this tussle for the smartphone crown taking place? It seems to me that at least for the foreseeable future Google has convincingly won that "tussle".

As to Windows phone topping Blackberry, that's a bit like saying a 100 year old person on their deathbed is more energetic than someone who is already dead.

Dick, even if you don't believe Christ was the Savior, He existed. Your post speaks of a lack of education on the subject.

re: Windows Phone Tops BlackBerry In U.S.
Why the comparison between an OS and one manufacturer ?

To have the right view, comparison has to be between manufacturers.
BlackBerry against HTC
BlackBerry against Nokia
etc.

I would like to see BlackBerry QNX share in the market against Windows Mobile.
In this way, QNX is used in Defense, Healthcare, Automobile, etc.
Is it the same deployment on Windows Mobile ?
Just curious.

Having used them all, WP8 is the worst. Android 4.2 is by far, without even a competition, the best.

Hahahahaha. Lol. BB10 beating sales. Yeah. Rich. It has about zero chance of being android, and the rest of the market is in decline, including BB and IP.
