Only place it looks like BB might have a home (outside of Canada) is Mexico. 2nd in market share, even with the huge drop off.

If you look at the Market Shares.. WP is the third OS in all the countries except Mexico.. Even though its share doesnt reach double figures in any of the countries... but it's still third.. i think alot of it has to do with the Nokia Lumia 510(or other variations of that). It will help BB also if they release a entry level BB10 device.. In India where BB has a great following, it offers BB Curve as the entry level smartphone with prices almost as much as Lumia 510. Customers are not stupid to buy BB now when they know the device is already outdated. Almost everyone who wanted a BB i know are not getting Lumia 510 because it offers a fluid experience at pocket friendly prices.

BB.. release an entry level BB10 device if you wanna survive.. Q1 and Z1 or something like that.. but under $200.
