Branding and Timing. Apple and Android have branded their products to end consumers, much better then RIM/Blackberry ever did. Do the math, if a person who is 24 years old was born in 1989, they would have been exposed to the first generation of the iPhone in 2007 when they were 18 years old, perfect time to afford a smart phone. Anyone 25 years and older experienced Blackberries during their hay days, when they were the only smart phone players in the market.
