Default A show of hands please? How many BB users are there?

Please Login to Remove!

(Sorry Mods, don't know where else to post this question)

I'm curious to know how many active BlackBerry users are out there. I've heard estimates from 4 to 14 million BB users. Anybody have any definitive stats?

Now, is that 15M active BB data plans? You have to figure in the folks that have multiple BB's

Nope, but it does kind of guide how much focus we want to put into developing software for the BlackBerry market (versus winmobile and/or other j2me phones). One analyst had told us the number was < 10M, but I'd read that it was more.

Of course, market size doesn't matter nearly as much as just making solid, useful products

I really appreciate everybody's feedback. You guys rock.
