I thought I read somewhere that WP had already taken the number three spot. BB was down to fourth.

N4BB is running the story that Microsoft might still be interested in BlackBerry. The brass ring with BlackBerry is their patents for elliptical curve encryption. And that's one thing WP is lacking - security. Microsoft could make some noise with a DoD-certified operating system on Lumia phones.
