The reason for this is that Blackberry was the de facto standard for industry, and industry is much slower moving than the commercial market. Changing platform when you have a few thousand users using the same device is a major undertaking. Changing when it’s just you is easy.
Symbian = Nokia, not Blackberry.

And Nokia was by far the leading phone seller for many years, and still has a huge foothold in the cheap phones within developing countries, hence why it has still been such a high seller for so many years. But Android is starting to make big inroads into this market too (speaking as someone that just bought a cheap Android phone in Peru ;) ).
