image Get this: RIM pretty much controls the smartphone market these days. The BlackBerry Curve is #1 in the market, the BlackBerry Storm is #3, and the BlackBerry Pearl is #4. (Apple’s iPhone lost 10 percent of its market share in the first quarter of the year and fell to second place.)

Why? Aggressive marketing for one, but also for a simple reason: The BlackBerrys are available on all the major cellular networks, but the iPhone is only on AT&T. (Consumer Reports is pretty rough on AT&T. “[It and Sprint] might be an option if they’re competitive in the Ratings for your city or if their exclusive phones or plan features appeal to you.”)
