RIM’s special BlackBerry 10 event scheduled for January 30 2013, new OS and two phones to be unveiled

by: AdrianNovember 12, 2012
Roughly three years ago, Research in Motion was the biggest name in the mobile industry, holding a sweet 50% share in the smartphone market. Apple and Android’s fantastic progresses, but also RIM’s creative slump and inability to keep with the times made BlackBerries a thing of the past, and now all they can dream is to get to the bronze medal before Microsoft.

RIM’s CEO says BlackBerry 10 will beat Windows Phone 8; Android and iOS are too tough to compete with

by: ŠtefanSeptember 26, 2012
Research in Motion, remember those guys? They're hard at work on their next generation operating system, which they're calling BlackBerry 10. Yesterday the company showed the world a sneak peak of what it's going to look like, and we've got to admit, it does look rather interesting. It's heavily inspired by Nokia's MeeGo operating system, Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system, and there's even some hints of Android in there. But will it take off?

by: Simon HillSeptember 25, 2012
If we go back to 2009 BlackBerry had a 50 percent share of the smartphone market. That has fallen to around 6 percent. Where did it go? Most of it went to Android.

Is there a chance HTC will license BB10? Maybe.

by: Andrew GrushSeptember 11, 2012
In order to try and crawl out of the huge financial hole it's creating for itself, RIM recently announced a new strategy: it will attempt to license out its QNX-based OS to other phone companies and even automotive and computer developers. At the same time, RIM said they would still make their own line of BB10-based Blackberries. The talks about licensing soon lead to speculation that Samsung might be interesting in buying or licensing out the BB10 OS for future products, which Samsung quickly shot down. So Sammy might not be interested in licensing, but HTC might.

IDC: Android jumps to 68.1% global market share, iOS slips to 16.9%

by: LucianAugust 8, 2012

According to IDC, Android and iOS now represent 85% of the 152 million smartphones sold in Q2 2012, globally. But while the iPhone kept growing in raw numbers, it couldn’t keep up with Android, and its market share slipped from 18.8% to 16.9%.  The iPhone has always been around 20% market share or lower globally, and with the upcoming iPhone coming out soon, it’s not that surprising that its sales would fall.

On the other hand, Android has simply kept on growing, and its global market share is inching closer towards passing the 70% mark, now being at 68.1%. It doesn’t seem like there’s anything stopping Android from [...]

New rumors point to a RIM-Samsung partnership

by: LucianAugust 8, 2012

RIM put itself in a terrible position in the market in the past couple of years, by not listening to all the signs that the market is shifting to touchscreen phones. Not only RIM still doesn’t know how to make a good touchscreen, but its current gen OS is completely inadequate for the touch screen era.

RIM planned to launch the QNX-based OS for smartphones, called BB10, at the end of this year. But then, further delays appeared along with some poor excuses, and that’s how BB10 got delayed until early 2013. This means that RIM’s new operating system is very late to the party and has almost no ecosystem, which makes it very hard for RIM to [...]

RIM CEO admits to having considered switch to Android

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 3, 2012

RIM isn’t exactly in the best form today, having risen and fallen as the preferred smartphone platform in the enterprise market. To date, BlackBerry’s market share has dwindled, although the platform remains in third place after Android and iOS. In the aim of keeping up with the times, RIM had actually considered making the switch to Android.

In an interview with The Telegraph, RIM’s new CEO Thorsten Heins admitted that the Canadian company could not keep up with Apple and Samsung, given their market dominance in the smartphone and tablet business. He pointed out that RIM did not have “the economy of scale to compete [...]
