BlackBerry Z10 (CDMA)
Replying to: BB Swan Song by MadFatMan
I think that I've seen this before. ..
Oh yes, this is Palm's WebOS with the Pre and Pixie all over again. Of course you will have the BB diehards that will rush out and snap up the 1st wave giving the project a false sense of success and yes I am speaking to the American market only as Im fully aware of BB's market presence OUTSIDE of the US market.
You haven't seen this before.
WebOS was great.
Hardware was subpar
Palm bleeding money from prior company mismanagement
Exclusive to Sprint when Pre was introduced?
Sold to yet another company who mismanaged it and killed it off
None of this is happening with Blackberry. 2 billion in cash reserves laying around.
History is repeating itself. This OS and hardware needed to come out TWO years ago when the Playbook was under a hard push.
Playbook was a mistake to introduce first, but two years ago you would have said the same thing that they needed to introduce it earlier.
RIM/BB did it to themselves by failing to act quicker. Too little too late just like Palm in 2009.
I am not buying it. Everyone on this site would "jump ship" for any little feature they hated on their phones at the moment. Sounds like Blackberry can take advantage of this.
