Robert Bose, regional managing director middle east and Africa, speaks to journalist during a blackBerry press conference in Lagos, Nigeria. Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012. The company that makes BlackBerry smartphones is looking to Africa to help its troubled sales. Officials with Toronto-based Research In Motion Ltd. told journalists in Lagos, Nigeria, on Tuesday that its handsets are the No. 1 choice among those using smartphones in Nigeria and South Africa. Officials say that in Nigeria alone, its phones represent one out of every two phones in the market, an incredible grip on the market of Africa's most populous nation and BlackBerry phones remain such a pop culture fascination in Nigeria that it spawned a popular local film "BlackBerry Babes." .(AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
