iPhone, Android Ending BlackBerry's Enterprise Dominance
Research in Motion's BlackBerry has suffered what must be the most devastating setback of 2012 for the embattled smartphone. It is now projected that the iPhone and Android-powered devices will replace BlackBerry as the top smartphones for enterprise around the world before the end of this year.
Since its inception, BlackBerry has been the leading "enterprise choice." But with each passing year, BlackBerry has seen its leadership position slip. And now, sadly for RIM, BlackBerry is poised to lose its dominance with its longstanding core market. That's according to IDC.
"BlackBerry continues to be the gold standard for security," IDC said, but added that reduced consumer and developer interest "hinders its viability going forward."
Just last week, MMi confirmed that BlackBerry has also lost the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) as users. It's simply the latest of a growing number of government agencies that have dumped BlackBerry for either Android devices or Apple's iPhone.
With the enterprise community now turning to Android and iOS devices more consistently than RIM's BlackBerry, some analysts think RIM's predicament may be far more grave than previously anticipated.

Work gave me a Blackberry. Bloody horrible phone. Hard to type on (no physical keyboard, just touch). Everything is too small and most of the time the wrong buttons get pressed. Worst thing is that if you forget to lock the screen when you make a call then your ear or cheek ends up pressing all sorts of buttons by accident. Hate the bloody thing lol

Thats what happens if you hold onto small screen with a keypad..no software improvement and product innovation
