Blackberry might be the butt of fanboy jokes, but the trade-in experts at NextWorth ( have pulled some surprising data that suggests loyal Blackberry users are still out there. In fact, NextWorth’s data shows that Blackberry handsets resell values are neck-and-neck with increasingly popular Samsung, and not far behind HTC.

“The numbers show a robust secondary market for Blackberry that is keeping up residual value,” says Jeff Trachsel, CMO of NextWorth. “This could definitely be indicative of the dedicated nature of Blackberry enthusiasts.”
