There is malware for blackberry, has been charging people for long distance calls to premium numbers for ages, there is also the case of Saudi Arabia when spying and recording software was gov installed OTA and masked as a network update. Malware is different to virus which should only describe a self replicating piece of code..

The user is almost always the gate between malicious code landing on your filesystem and any kind of system protection. It's either the user clicking OK or exploitation of a vulnerable system service on the platform.

In the case of Saudi Arabia you can't really blame the blackberry users since the infection/monitoring was government orchestrated and carrier executed.
