    I see. So Americans should buy from a American company even if they feel it's not the best product and that's loyalty.

    Judging from the trend, I don't think Americans grasp that concept at all.

    So Americans should buy say a Moto X instead of a iPhone even if they feel it isn't the best product for them. Just buy it because it's a American company.

    Because they have no loyalty lol. They'd sooner buy a Korean product.

    Sure if they feel the Korean product is best.
    As a consumer don't you want what you feel is the best you can afford?

    Okay let's put it this way: anti Samsung sentiment in Korea is far less than anti Apple sentiment in USA.

    They are the household names that people buy almost by default, whether they are best or not. They are not, what you'd call, fair weather fans.
    I'm sorry but blackberry was a household name. Now it isn't at least from my part of Toronto. I only know two people with blackberries and they're both upgrading soon. On campus and in lectures I also see samsungs and iPhones and sometimes see a legacy bb. So please everybody don't think us Canadians are here wearing blackberry tees.

    As Canadians, I think we often struggle to to describe what exactly the Canadian identity is. We are a relatively young, very multicultural country. As a part of that search into what we are, we tend to identify with things that we're good at or enjoy (ie. Hockey) or homegrown success stories that have gotten known on a bigger stage (ie. BlackBerry, the Canadarm etc.)

    I'm a proud Canadian, I want BlackBerry to be successful. I want them to turn it around. But I'm not going to buy their product just because they are headquartered in Waterloo, Ontario. What they put out has to be able to meet my needs and wants. It's been frustrating seeing all their misfires over the last few years...one of the reasons I now have a couple of iOS and Android devices in my stable as well.

    If Apple is an American company... How come we don't see a sense of loyalty from the Americans to the level that the Canadian people have for BlackBerry?
    Americans end up being loyal to companies that serve their needs. Not everyone needs or wants Apple products. Americans have a mentality and way of life that entertains many "choices" and they use that advantage in many instances. That's why so many people want to live in the U.S. Lots and lots of choices. I think it's a much bigger deal to Canadians that BlackBerry is Canadian than it is to Americans that Apple is American.

    Speaking of the Moto X, I have heard that it's a pretty darn good phone.

    Yes I agree with above comment.
    I bet, apple has a higher market share in US than worldwide.
