Before the iPhone came out, BlackBerry was obviously ahead. Therefore, BB never actually passed iOS, though iOS passed BB.

This is remarkable. Considering using 500mb of data on the iphone only amounts to around 100mb usage on a BB with data compression.

To clear things up:
~BB ahead
~iOS comes out, passes BB
~BB regains control and passes iOS

So yes, BB did technically pass iOS for the first time. The article didn't say BB was ahead for the first time, it said it PASSED iOS for the first time...which like I said is technically correct. This isn't that hard of a concept to understand, guys, lol.
I think this might be what kg363 was trying to say, but didn't finnish. Kind of cut himself short.
