With all the negative press, sometimes people assume that the BlackBerry community is a fraction of the size it once was and that there are only a few left keeping RIM alive.
Agree with your points raised though.

Thanks. Not disputing there are more. Was just more of a side comment that I'd love to know how many active iOS users there actually are. Apple threw out "400 million iOS devices sold" at one of the events recently and then journalists and fanboys began quoting that number as "400 million users". I've even seen it on Wikipedia on the App Store page.
While I don't doubt there are a huge number of devices in use, there aren't *that many* and it shows (again) the flawed way in which many journalists report on studies and stats.

Pocket: 60% iOS 6 Adoption, 20% Of Daily Users Already On iPhone 5 | TechCrunch and some other stats, somewhere upwards of 120 million may be a good estimate for iPhone devices in use.
100 million upgraded to iOS 6
iOS 6 represents 60% of traffic on Pocket.
So that would potentially imply 170 million total iOS devices in use.
About 65% of the iOS devices may be iPhones
As of June 2012 (when the 400 million number was mentioned, 250 million of those were iPhones).
So that would imply that about 50% of iPhones ever sold were in use. That may be a little low since iPhones have a pretty active secondary market, but is a reasonable estimate based on the info we have.
In comparison, I think BB has shipped around 200 million units to date.

That being said, I'm not trying to say that my small sample is representative of the entire world. I'm just giving my input to the community just like you are and everyone else. I nobody gives their personal experiences, then this place would be useless and we would all have to trust the corporations and bias blogs for information. What a sad world you seem to want to live in....
