there is a mkt for all players, APPL ia best in consumer/social, but RIMM is a business solution, and MMI is just getting started as well as the entire sector, VZ says only 25% of their customers own a smartphones, lots of room for growth for all players!
VZ is not slanted towards APPL at all, T is....just go in and talk to the salespeople, they dont automatically guide their customer to AAPL, like T does, there are solutions for different applications, AAPL is not fit all, but hey, I like AAPL too, got lots of em in my house!! ipods, macs!! all good! my personal COMPUTER choice is APPL, not smartphone though!! NOTHING gets email alerts faster than Blackberry my friend, NOTHING!! sweet for a trader :)
