    The BlackBerry is the most popular smartphone in the Dutch market. While that set the world much less so is the young Dutch smartphone owners love it.
    The BlackBerry populareit is matched only by Samsung. Both are in a neck-and-neck race wound to the favor of the Dutch smartphone owner. What helps is BlackBerry include the interest of young people for the ping and getting used to the keys from the SMS history. The technologically advanced Samsung Galaxy II also attracts much interest.
    Because especially the young massive switch to smartphones (60 percent of people under 30 have a smartphone) is the major growth of the BlackBerry also explained. According to Telecompaper analyst of the Dutch smartphone market now led by BlackBerry, Nokia and Samsung, while Apple's iPhone still comes back.

That's because the brand, just like mom KPN, far behind in number of customers at T-Mobile and Vodafone. The subscription market leading T-Mobile, Vodafone as the largest in the prepaid market.

    Yep, it's good they are so popular in the Netherlands, Vietnam and Cambodia.

    Perhaps they will move their headquarters there?

    They will also be able to downsize some more.

    While good news, in part, it is too bad that this is one of only a few shining stars
    for a company that could be doing so much better.

    Guess you have to grab any good news at this point.
