Poor old Barack Obama. Not only is his pet project HealthCare.gov struggling to gain traction, he has other tech woes too: he isn’t allowed an iPhone for “security reasons”.
Every day or so I read another blog post (or ranting comments) about how BlackBerry could be rehabilitated, or how Nokia could restart Maemo and build the ultimate smartphone again. Things came to a head after Jolla announced their first phone for sale. Surely this phone with an amazing user interface will vindicate the N9?! Amazing technology plus a killer UI? Marketshare is theirs for the taking!
What’s the most you’d ever pay for a phone? I’d venture a guess and say probably $1000 given the amount of iPhone 5s devices I see getting about. How would you like to pay over $2500 for a crap smartphone you could just pay under $400 for? Meet the Porsche Design P’9982.
I think at this point we can pretty safely say that BlackBerry’s BB 10 relaunch was a bit of a disaster for the once-mighty Canadian smartphone makers. I mean, you don’t give your CEO the boot for nothing right? And it now seems the company is ready to fully capitulate to its Android rival.
BlackBerry might just be on the way out, but that doesn’t mean it’s about to go quietly. The Canadian manufacturer still has a few great handsets left in it, one of them being the new Z30.
According to Reuters, Blackberry is asking Google, Samsung, LG, Cisco, basically anybody with money to buy BlackBerry entirely or at the very least, certain parts of the company. This is seen as an alternative in case the finances don’t work out in going private.
Look, we all know that BlackBerry is in a tail spin and has been for a while. And at this point the situation can only become an incredible underdog story or a put the dog out of his misery moment. There’s no status quo anymore. But somehow the hole keeps being dug deeper. BlackBerry announced an abysmal early earnings report and major layoffs on Friday, and now there’s something else. BlackBerry was forced to release a statement yesterday saying that the new BBM apps for iOS and Android, which were supposed to be released yesterday and today respectively, are being delayed. And that’s just suboptimal.
