Not in this case, though. The quoted survey was for consumer users only, and deliberately left out those who were given by and/or use their phone for businesss.
In other words, the Curve sold to more everyday consumers than any other smartphone. And the other Blackberry rankings were also for consumers alone.
RIM consistently sells double what Apple sells, when you count all models and both enterprise and consumer users. This hasn't changed no matter what the prices were.
The difference right now is that individual Blackberries are doing extremely well. It would not be surprising if the Storm overtook the iPhone in the next few months as well, since we're up against the usual Apple drop in sales in Spring.
Then, come July and a new iPhone, its sales will take over for a few months again.
Interesting article. This has been brought up in other threads by me and others. I hate the fact that you can't buy a phone and choose the carrier that you want. I would still pick ATT, but I know that isn't the case with tons of other people. Phones being tied to a carrier is old school and needs to be changed.
