BlackBerry Plans To Knock iPhone 5 is Needed
Where is BlackBerry now? Is a question many wonder about, come on do not say you do not think the same things. Personally we believe BlackBerry plans to Knock iPhone 5 is needed and fairly soon.
We can all remember the days when we searched for BlackBerry news, went over to other websites such as BerryReview and CrackBerry and there was loads of articles covering RIM and BlackBerry, in fact we here at Phones Review used to get plenty of email press releases, that does not seem the case anymore.
It seems that Apple’s iOS and Android devices have taken over, and with Apple about to release the new iPhone 5 and iOS 5, and new Android smartphones coming via Samsung, Motorola and HTC etc where does this leave BlackBerry?
If you visit GigaOM they report that 52 percent of BlackBerry customers will move on over to Apple for the new iPhone 5, so it seems that the iPhone 5 will have a great following, Android will get a piece of the customer movement as well.
BlackBerry really needs to pull something out of the bag, we suggest they have a hard long think about this and put together some great out of the box ideas, and then make it happen.
Here is a mad thought, current BlackBerry owners and we mean the loyal ones will not like this idea but here goes anyway, how about BlackBerry coming up with a new design smartphone so to break away from the normal handsets that all seem to look relatively the same, another suggestion such as talking with Google, and implementing the Android operating system into BlackBerry handsets.
We say Android because Apple is quite hard when it comes to sharing with others, can you see Apple’s iOS on another handset? Not a chance, so that just leaves Android really because the rest of the operating systems are not that great, it is all about iOS and Android, so Android could be the OS that saves BlackBerry.
Basically in a nutshell, BlackBerry needs to redesign, maybe think about knocking on Google’s door to see if there is a possibility of a BlackBerry Android device.
Please let us know if you think it is the end of the road for BlackBerry, we would also like to hear a few ideas from our readers what BlackBerry needs to do to survive in this harsh market.
