    Notice they didn't mention Windows or Symbian phones as well. I'd say BlackBerry wasn't mentioned because of relative insignificance.

    The original sentence...

    "Tom Ritter and Doug DePerry demonstrated for Reuters how it is technically possible to eavesdrop on text messages, photos and phone calls made with an Android phone and an iPhone by using compromised Verizon products."

    ... would end up looking like ...

    "Tom Ritter and Doug DePerry demonstrated for Reuters how it is technically possible to eavesdrop on text messages, photos and phone calls made with an Android phone and an iPhone, a BlackBerry phone, a Windows phone and a Symbian phone by using compromised Verizon products."

    ... if the author went the more democratic route.

    I think it's any phone but the article would catch more attention by saying those two. Phone calls and texts are pretty much the same protocol no matter what os your phone is.

    Great selling point. "BlackBerry 10 devices are secure in more ways than you can realize. You are safe from eavesdropping because no one bothers to eavesdrop on BlackBerry devices. And when a thief in the street gets one look at the BlackBerry logo on your phone, he will simply pass you by and continue his search for a victim using an iPhone or Android-based device."

    Apple played that game for a long time with their Apple vs Microsoft ... touting how safe Mac were from virus and hackers, when in reality, there just weren't enough Mac out there to make it worth their time. In a way Apple got the message across, and Apple Computers is still in business.
