The BlackBerry Blast: Samsung Galaxy S4 May Eat Overpriced BlackBerry Z10, Says Analyst

Amid all the pomp and show, the confetti blasted bit lesser than expected on the BlackBerry market response. Despite clever marketing promo and upped specs, the BB Z10 has failed to gain super hot response from industry pundits. If you go by figures, the stocks for BB dipped by whooping 10 per cent on Thursday alone. Add to this, no specific announcement for availablity across US markets– and BB has just landed on blow on its own accord.

Moreover, the market is warming up to welcoming Samsung Galaxy SIV (Releasing in April). In such a scenario, BB could have indeed set a strategy to make a mark. Joshua Topolsky from  verge expresses,  “No one could argue that there’s a ‘killer app’ here. Something that makes you want or need this phone because it can do what no other phone can do. That’s not the case.”

Moving over the availability issue that has let USA down, India– slated as the second biggest zone for market sales in the gadget sector—might not be beaming with the BB Z10. Why so? Look at the price tag and you would know why! ($200 for a two year contract)

Anshul Gupta, leading industry analyst, Gartner said, “The Z10 launched yesterday is obviously a high-end product and India is not a market at that price point.”… Read the rest

BlackBerry Z10 Vs iPhone 5 Vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Absolute Must Apps For RIM To Take The Steering Wheel From The Kings

We’ve entered 2013 and it’s going to be a big year for BlackBerry’s maker Research in Motion (RIM). After fighting a losing battle over the past couple of years with the iPhone and various Android smartphones, the company is literally putting all its eggs into this one basket – that of the BlackBerry 10. In all fairness, RIM is going to face quite an uphill task at it takes on not just these 2 popular smartphone OS’s, but also Windows Phone 8, which has also been receiving its share of rave reviews.

One of the biggest challenges RIM will have to overcome is in the number of apps on offer. Given that Android and iOS have been around for a while, they each have over hundreds of thousands of apps that their users can choose from. Currently, the BlackBerry 10 has less than 100,000 apps on offer when it’s set to launch on January 30.

Another big issue with BlackBerry has to do with the brand perception. Traditionally, the BlackBerry has always been seen as a corporate, professional device, with no scope for entertainment. Although RIM did try quite a bit with expanding its customer base through marketing to make the BlackBerry appear more fun, let’s face it – its QWERTY keypad and tiny screen didn’t really spell out fun.

If it really wants to take on the likes of iOS and Android, the BlackBerry 10 OS should offer many entertainment apps, which will keep its users engaged. With its unique BlackBerry Balance feature, the BlackBerry Z10 will allow users to separate their work apps from their personal ones, making the Z10 a lot more likeable as a smartphone for stuff beyond work.

On the plus side, recent tests have shown that the BlackBerry Z10’s browser is much faster in performance than that of the iOS 6 and Windows Phone browsers – a key advantage for those who depend on their mobiles for accessing the net. The BlackBerry Z10 has also proven that it can handle multitasking comfortably, so we’re hoping that the BlackBerry App Store would have enough apps we can choose from to use this capability to the hilt.

The good news for RIM is that the BlackBerry 10 is being talked about and people are eagerly waiting to see the latest OS launching. If it has managed to make as many headlines even before its launch, we’re guessing all RIM needs to do is to play their cards just right to be able to make the BlackBerry 10 a successful smartphone OS. It may just be powerful enough to win back some of its loyal customers who have moved on to iPhones, Android phones, or maybe even Windows Phone based smartphones.… Read the rest
