Why are BlackBerry phones so popular?

What’s so good about BlackBerry phones? I don't think they're that hot.

I never thought the iPhone would catch on ;)

I suppose a market of 6 bn + leaves room for 'weirdos' who like a phone with decent battery life, secure fast data compression, good physical keyboards, free/cheap instant messaging, fussfree email...oh, what do I know? I'm just guessing.
It's down to taste, and what people want their gadgets to be, I suppose?
Take the Playstation - I'd have preferred the PS3 to be backward compatible and load games faster rather than ship with dozens of bells and whistles whose tune I won't sing, but I'm only a fraction of a billionth of Sony's target group.
