I think a large reason that Blackberry has the share they do in Canada is due to the federal government (and most municipal) use Blackberry exclusively. Living in Ottawa I know a number of federal employees have their work BB, and another Android or Iphone device for personal use.

The primary success of Blackberry was because of its security. Even my company still has BB as the main corporate communication device for security reasons. As the iPhone gets more secure, it will replace BB and that day is soon.
