I am not sure if for Z10, BlackBerry developers would have trouble with a different screensize as compared to when they develop for previous models? Can previous apps run on the new Z10?

mfbertozzi,

I agree with you that the smartphone market needs strong competition. It will be several quarters before we can get a clearer picture of how these new phones will impact BlackBerry's revenues and market share. In the meantime, the Apple/Samsung duopoly in the smartphone market seems to be firmly entrenched.

@Brian: thanks, great article, it summarizes exactly where the company is, right now; only a few months ago, it was unpredictable and speaking for myself, I am happy for them and for the market, because the market needs absolutely good competitors for providing endusers with best products.

I have not seen the new BlackBerry phone so cannot comment on the innovation but i think hardware has always been good. Its also true that most of the phones can match the hardware on paper but the ture integration with software is innovation.

For now, it appears RIM has adopted a good strategy: good product, right price, proper mix of innovation. Thanks to that, they are meeting with a positive trend, after a very long time. And several users are falling in love with the product, sales' trend is really good abroad.

Excellent point, @Himanshugupta. I'll take it one step further. That "walled garden," whether it's the Apple environment or the Android environment will win the consumer. This is a real challenge for hardware vendors because the innovation won't be at the hardware level. (Or I should say the hardware innovation won't be as valued as what advancements the services bring). 

Since Apple owns its garden and its hardware, this isn't such a bad deal. But companies that are selling Android devices have a tough road ahead of them. 

Blackberry's proposition is a third walled garden and "better email security." I don't think that dog hunts, as they say in Texas.

It seems that the only entry point of a smartphone is compelling hardware with all the necessary software (apps) at a very marginal profit price. I think once people start to get hang of a brand then they try to go with it for an upgrade unless a competitor is providing a much better alternative at lower cost.
