If I might be so bold: Thing bigger; BlackBerry users are quite
frequently served by a larger IT structure and so, by extension, are
more IT-inclined - even if only by virtue of the fact that they do
(for the most part :) only what their IT folks say, and simply hand
the device over to be "serviced", when "out of their depth".
And, in keeping with the focus on email, as mentioned in a previous
message, BlackBerry users' email is almost always via an account on an
Exchange server - necessarily run by a larger IT structure and,
generally, pretty well sanitized. As opposed to the higher likelihood
of other devices getting email via any and every service out there.

A very good point indeed.
