"We remain committed to delivering high quality products and services to the millions of people who rely on us globally," new Blackberry CEO John Chen stated this week in a letter to customers posted to the Blackberry website. Chen was named new CEO last week after the company announced they'd scrapped plans for a sale. "We also want our customers to know that BlackBerry has significant financial strength for the long-haul," promises Chen. That financial strength won't be helped by the continued lack of compelling next-gen product, including this week's Verizon-exclusive launch of Blackberry's Z30.
Blackberry is a dying brand, Apple and Android are much more popular.
There is a point where a brand should raise the white flag and file for liquidation. Just like Kodak was the number one film brand, now camera phones outnumber film cameras. Blockbuster used to be a powerhouse in video rental, now they are going bye-bye. I think BlackBerry is headed to a similar fate.
It's not just the phone itself, it's you got to have apps to feed the phone. App developers are going focus their energy on phones that dominate the market like iPhone and Android. People are going to buy phones that they can get the biggest selection of apps for. -- I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.
"I did not have sexual relations with Ms Lewinski."
Deny, deny, deny! Just because you say it over and over doesn't make it true. BB should have their PR people look at themselves from outside the walls of the corporate office, just to hear how silly their statements are!
