On a global basis, the number of active BlackBerry users has increased substantially between 2007 and 2012. For example, for the fiscal period during which the Apple iPhone was first released in 2007, RIM reported that they had a user base of 10.5 million BlackBerry subscribers. At the end of 2008, when Google Android first hit the market, RIM reported that the number of BlackBerry subscribers had increased to 21 million. Likewise, in the fiscal period where phones running Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 hit the market, RIM announced that the number of BlackBerry subscribers had reached 55 million. Finally, in the quarter ended June 2012, RIM announced that the number of BlackBerry subscribers had reached 78 million globally. Hardly a sign of a dead product. We would like to see Microsoft partner with RIM and offer a true, corporate wireless device that features the best of windows and the best of Blackberry security and reliability.
