I hope you are more knowledgeable about F1 than you are about mobile phone technology
Apple's market capitalisation has fallen more than Microsoft is worth in the past 6 months, while RIMs share price has more than doubled, admittedly from a low point.
Corporates will NEVER adopt iOS because the OS prevents remote support by design, you try guiding 1,000 field sales people through a roll out issue on the phone rather than taking control and doing it yourself.
Blimy thats a bit of a skewed statistic there isnt it. If you knew anything about Apple you'd know that their market growth is sporadic, but stable. The decline always happens when there is a gab in release cycles. Pull that graph up when the next iPhone is released and see what happens
Also dont forget that Apple just had a major corp reshuffle, ditching a number of long-term executives and reassigning roles - this causes concern in investors, quite understandably.
Lets look at it in a slightly more fair way than the last 6 months shall we, where BB have had a lot of hype thrown their way.
The last 5 years:
Also to say corporations will never adopt iOS is laughable. iOS enterprise usage has seen massive growth. The iPad has greatly helped this (http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ipad-driv ... 00641.html
). Dont forget that an iOS rollout is actually gherkin easy thanks to the remote tools provided (and yes, I have used them).
