Bingo. Nail on the head. Reqwireless definitely lost out. They got Microsofted out of the market.
But this deficiency is more than made up for other applications. Look at all the BlackBerryForums software sponsors this site has now -- and many of them have announced amazing sales growth.
Also, BlackBerry is becoming somewhat more mainstream than it used to be. Historically, BlackBerry software prices have been extremely high. Prices have been falling with many vendors. It is possible that less people willing to pay high prices for expensive software that's increasingly being competed by lower priced alternatives, thus one company XYZ Inc. falls and another company ABC Inc. goes way up. Companies must be smart to adapt to the changing BlackBerry market.
