According to an IDG report, year over year shipment growth for the BlackBerry grew by 35.7%.  In Q3 ’08, 14.6% of smartphones sold worldwide were BlackBerrys.  In Q3 ’09, 19% of smartphones sold were BlackBerrys.

In contrast, iPhone shipments grew by only 7.1%.  Now, don’t get me wrong…  7.1% growth in this economy is pretty darn good.  It’s 400%, or, 5 times less than what the BlackBerry did, but, still pretty good none the less.
