Blackberry 7 is approved by the Pentagon. According to the Department of Defense’s fiscal 2013 budget, there are about 250,000 Blackberry devices currently in use, while 5,000 Apple iOS devices and 3,000 Android devices are part of a pilot system.

Only the governments are using Blackberry because people wanted more Apps and games so they will used Androids and Apple devices.

i dislike how it groups asia as one group. what about japan and korea stacked against the US? i know japan, and probably korea, have had internet on mobiles long before the iphone made it cool to surf the web on your phone. what kind of traffic do they have

Anyway games for tablets and smartphones still can't replace PC gaming experience. :)

Agreed. Maybe in a few years tablets will catch up, but not yet. Wonder who the idiot that gave you a red thumbs up is??? He cannot be a pc gamer. Probably thinks Angry Birds is a top notch game.LOL

I agree that phones still cannot match the gaming experience we can get on a PC. But with a modern phone I still got quality internet browsing, gaming and many more of my entertainment needs with only 1 device that fits inside my pocket which I can easily access at home or even on the go that reduces my needs for a PC significantly..
