I hate to ask, but if you're in the US Blackberries are * extremely* common. When I went to Europe, I never saw a BB for months and months. On planes, trains, buses, not one. Nokia phones on the other hand...

Same here in South America, BlackBerrys, iPhones and HTC Smart Phones are far less common than the Nokia mid/low end phones that are obiquitous.

They are very popular in business circles, but not so popular for consumers. Working in/commuting to London I see them every day.

I see as many, if not more iPhones. I see a lot of other smart phones (Nokia/Samsung/LG etc.) I see a few older ones. I've seen two, maybe three Android phones - though I do know a couple of friends that have the Hero.

But doesn't England make a point of not exactly being Europe? From what my few English colleagues tell me, they aren't exactly happy being lumped in with the rest of the continent.

Granted, I was only in England on Holiday. And I'm probably completely wrong in my impressions. I was, however, buried in the business world in Germany and I can't recall seeing one.
