I would also say the real fight for first is Apple and Korean manufacturer Samsung.

BB10 sales are beating iPhone sales in Canada and in UK, they are just behind iPhone 5 / 4s and Galaxy S3. WP8 need not apply.

re: Windows Phone Tops BlackBerry In U.S.
Having used all (except the yet to come BB10), i can easily say that WP8 is the best mobile OS out there. it just happen to be born in a sea full of big fish. but if it survives it's young years, it will no doubt dominate. it is robust, solidly coded and extremely intuitive, the user interface of WP8 makes both Android and iOS look like museum material.

of course the WP8 market of apps is no mach for the massive Google Play or the App Store. but it is growing fast and it has all the essential apps, it doesn't yet have 10000 apps that simulate drinking a soda and burping, but that's OK...

TO anyone with a postpaid/contract carrier. You need to move to StraightTalk/Net10/TracFone/TMob/etc. Get a Nexus 4 ($300 or $350 unlocked), and grab a prepaid SIM.

I currently have unlimited talk/text/data for $42/mo.

Free yourself. As for Blackberry? Dead. Microsoft? Dead. Move on.

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.

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

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.

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.
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.
