Even the BlackBerry faithful are abandoning RIM | Mobile Technology - InfoWorld

Another dynamic I’ve noted recently: many BlackBerry users carry two phones, with the second phone either Android or iPhone

Anecdotal evidence bears out this fast shift. At a conference I attended last week for big-company CIOs, more than half had iPhones and about half had BlackBerrys. There were also a couple Android smartphones in use. (Some CIOs had multiple devices, thus the totals coming to more than 100 percent.) All but one had an iPad with them. I've been attending this twice-yearly conference for seven years, and in the last 18 months the shift away from the BlackBerry has been dramatic, going from 100 percent to about 50 percent. And most still using BlackBerrys expected to drop their RIM devices in the next two years.
