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.

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 [...]

RIM: Here’s what you need to do to succeed with Blackberry 10 this fall

by: LucianMay 8, 2012

Android is a great operating system (I’d say the best overall), and I can see myself using it for at least the next five years. It may even become a desktop solution, if Google takes the right steps in that direction. But we should always encourage more competition in the market. Competition is a good thing for Google because it will have to innovate faster, and everyone else will have to keep up with its pace. Other companies will come with their own innovations, and the virtuous cycle will repeat itself.

This is why I’m excited about RIM’s Blackberry. I really want them to pull a comeback. I am not worried about RIM stealing any Android market share [...]

BlackBerry 10 is Looking Good, But Will It Compete Against Android?

by: Christine TorralbaFebruary 2, 2012

The new BlackBerry 10 looks promising yet almost identical to the BlackBerry PlayBook—only this time, the new model has rounded corners as well as an all-black look. Codenamed as London, the device is expected to have a UK launch later this year. On the other hand, the US market of the device will receive the gadget too but with a different codename, either ‘Laguna’ or ‘Lisbon’ which will be hitting the big three mobile networks—AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint.

Meanwhile, CrackBerry foresees that the US launch will be earlier than the UK. But since the BlackBerry is still the UK’s number one smartphone, RIM may have its work cut out for them if they want to make a huge [...]
