Vodacom has revealed that they currently have 2.4 million BlackBerry smartphones on their network, significantly higher than the 500,000 Android smartphones and 250,000 iPhones on its network.

Since May 2012 the number of BlackBerry devices on the Vodacom network increased by 100,000 – up from 2.3 million to 2.4 million.

In comparison, Android grew from 450,000 devices to 500,000, while the number of iPhones showed no growth and remained steady at 250,000.

In April 2011 Vodacom had had around 1-million BlackBerry devices on its network, with 150,000 iPhones and around 100,000 Android devices.

This means that Vodacom signed up 1.4 million BlackBerry users over the last 15 months, while adding 150,000 iPhone users and 400,000 Android subscribers.
