VERIZON WIRELESS AND RIM ANNOUNCE NEW BLACKBERRY® CURVE™ 9310 SMARTPHONE
are they really still making blackberry phones? I thought apple was taking over the world?
LOL, and the Android empire is ever expanding. RIM is really in its doldrums... and almost no one in their right mind should be considering this device. The new plan pricing is all wrong (for most) and the specs are from 2007.
I honestly don't even know one single person with a blackberry anymore. The OS is pretty much dead and the company is failing. I'd say by next year RIM will be gone completely.
Unfortunately, there's still a very significant Blackberry population among security-minded corporate entities that don't have a BYOD policy and these don't move very fast. It'll take them a long time to switch to a different platform. I'd be surprised if they can do it in one year.
Our company allows BB and iOS. They absolutely prefer and encourage BB over iOS by making the pass code requirements for iOS more and more difficult.
Many of my co workers have a BB even though they own iOS devices just to avoid this.
I met a couple of visiting engineers from a small/mid-sized business this week. They both had BB's assigned to them for e-mails and whatever else their company required. But for personal use, one had a Samsung Galaxy and the other an iPhone. They seemed to be using their personal phones alot more, and ignoring their BB's for the most part.
RIM is indeed in a "death-spiral" and if they don't find a way to pull up on the stick, they'll be in the scrap yard next to Nortel pretty soon.
