It wasn't that long ago that BlackBerry was the most popular smartphone of them all, especially in the professional business world. However, the rise of iPhone and Android sent BlackBerry's market share spiraling. Even worse news for BlackBerry is that it's expected to drop to the number four slot (behind Windows Phone) in November!
While BlackBerry is still successful overseas, previously dedicated customers in America, like politicians and high profile businessmen, are reluctantly making the switch to other devices. Most of these people still love their old BlackBerry phones, but they just can't keep up high end devices like the iPhone 5 or Galaxy S III.
