Please do well.. please do well..
It'd be really nice to see the smartphone innovator and pioneer succeed in a newly competitive market. Back when it Blackberry vs. Symbian vs. Windows Mobile, I always used Blackberry (though I had an N95 too).. I want to keep seeing them do well, because the more competition there is in a marketplace, the more innovation that springs from it.
I have a feeling this late start is going to put a serious damper on their sales. How many people are going to wait for the new blackberry with all the new phones being released this Fall?
Man I used to love my crackberry, but it just couldn't compete with other smartphones. I hope they can close the gap with BB10 but it looking more and more like a loosing battle for RIM.
@erakith i had the n95 too one of the best phone ive had. If only nokia marketed towards americans more they would be on top. As long as its not an appke ill be rooting for them
yea good point, with the launch of the iphone 5 the Blackberry will likely be eclipsed.
I miss the days where Blackberry was the standard in business. Where every one who had a job to do did it on a blackberry. They are good devices but they just couldn't change with the times. This resurgence should be extremely interesting. After all it is exactly like Joshua said, Its make it or break it for RIM
It will probably do well until Apple sues them for infringement and they subsequently go out of business probably before these ever hit the consumer market.
RIM has their own trove of patents, so they're not a easy target for Apple. Besides, Apple mainly goes after their biggest competitors.
While RIM is actually unlikely to go out of business regardless, they just may cease to be a hardware company but they can continue as a software company.
Besides, RIM isn't doing as badly in other countries as they are in the US and there's still no real alternative to their secure/encrypted messaging service.
