Connecticut Firm Says Blackberry Has 90% Chance of Flopping !!

The mobile market is still on the fence about the new BB10 devices, and what to think of them. It took an entire year for Blackberry to release a new device, and it that time the likes of Samsung have reign over the smartphone market and niched themselves as a contender against the iPhone with their popular Galaxy devices. MKM Partners in Connecticut believe that the new BB10 has a 90% chance of being a big flop and chances are they could be right. With 3 iPhoned dropping this year and Samsung gearing up to release their highly anticipated Galaxy S IV the chances of Blackberry surviving is very slim“We have been testing the Z10 and like the operating system, especially the touchscreen BB10 keyboard predictive text functionality, but we do not think it is differentiated enough to save the brand,” Genovese wrote. “The Z10 hardware seems bulky and heavy, but the biggest problem by far is the lack of available applications for BB10.”

Blackberry Says They Want Netflix and Instagram Aboard BB10

    One of the lacking features of the new BB 10 devices is in the app department. BB10 has no major backing when it comes to its app store. Blackberry (formerly RIM) said its in talks with Netflix and Instagram to bring their apps into the Blackberry fold for the BB10 devices. However Blackberry would not and could not confirm on the situation saying they “could not confirm when those apps will make their way into the store,” so BlackBerry fans may have to wait a while before they have access to two of the biggest apps in the mobile world”. If Blackberry Research and Development department did their homework they would know that apps make the mobile world go round so the sooner the better.
