I got following SMS few days back
” Life would be much easier if Apple & blackberry were just fruits ”
Its pretty interesting to see the growth of these technology companies. Blackberry targeted at a specific niche in start ” The Business Class” . BIS [ BlackBerry Internet Services] is their core product and could be classified as their ” Unique Selling Proposition ” . My first phone was a Nokia & since then mostly kept Nokia phones. iPhones and blackberry were pretty tempting but could not divert me for as long and I always switched back. Push Email & BlackBerry Messenger [BBM] were two things that always used to tempt me for BB. Problem with BB Pin was that it was linked to hardware and changes every time you change the phone. Live Profile introduced a service that gives you same facility. Interestingly you can add friends from BBM. Still, the BB user have to use Live profile in order to interconnect. It has received a huge response and in near future, it would be pretty common. I am waiting for the Symbian version which seems highly unlikely though.
Secondly Push email. I recently started using emoze push email and its awsome. It acts in similar way as BB.I just wonder, with such alternatives, how long BB will retain its market. Email over internet is no longer a businessmen product.
I could see a tough future for BB… Lets see what happens
