Where do these statistics come from?
Just read this over at n4bb.com which is great news for RIM!
With BlackBerry 10 RIM Expected to Ship 35.5 Million Devices by FY14 - N4BB
I was wondering where the statistics come from... How do they estimate such numbers of handsets to sell. based on what? Am I part of that 35.5 million? because im definetely upgrading to bb10, but havent been part of any market research or anything like that.....
any experts shed light on this?

They're not "statistics," they're predictions. In the last 4 quarters, RIM sold about 42 million phones. Taking into account that the last 2 quarters are probably more representative of the general trend, about 17.5 million phones sold, it's not a big stretch to predict 35.5 million or so phones. And yes, you're included in the 35..5 million.

I'm not included in the 35.5 million yet, because those analysts just have no idea how likely it is that many members of my family, who have not been big BlackBerry customers in the past, will be getting BB10 phones.
Of course, that's partly (largely?) because of my influence, and my involvement in developing BB10 apps, but if the analysts thought this attitude was more widespread they'd have price targets of $60 on the stock, and be predicting 50M phones sold instead. ;-)

Rim used to ship 13-15 million a quarter so even if they are doing 10-12 a quarter the 35 million number is really not surprising. Of course this all depends on if bb10 is a hit or not.

With that said BB10 is a much easier platform to develop on than BBOS and if the numbers come and the 'let's bash RIM at every chance we get' mentality in the press subsides a little, it will improve.

Alright....let's start a pool...Crackberry can sponsor a prize, doesn't have to be a car..perhaps a car charger?
I'll start...47.5 million shipped by FY 14
