I think actually that there is a very small percent of users, and more importantly potential users, who actually care what OS is loaded. I am not talking about the CrackBerry Addicts that read these forums, however, the vast majority of BlackBerry users probably couldn't even tell you what OS their BlackBerry runs, let alone care if it is BB OS v4 or Windows Mobile.
To be honest, if RIM came out with a BlackBerry powered by Windows Mobile, you would problably see an significant increase in consumer oriented sales much like we are seeing right now around the Treo 700w.
Whether we CrackBerry Addicts will admit it or not the BB OS being better than Windows Mobile has little to do with the spin generating positioning power of the name Microsoft that would probably make a Windows Mobile Powered BlackBerry one of, if not the best selling PDAs to ever hit the market.
