RIM is fighting back

November 30, 2008

It did not take long for RIM to lunch its answer to Apple’s iPhone. Although there is still work for RIM in making the Blackberry Storm a worth competition to the iPhone surly they are in the right direction. At least keeping some of its users from defecting.

Another device, which was released in Europe a few months back, but just now in the US by AT&T is the Blackberry Bold. Now offering 3G and other goodies, this device is certainly a business workhorse. I did not find any worth alternative for the excellent Blackberry push email as of yet.
Until then, and especially in light of the constant improvements with its devices (HTML email is still a bummer) RIM is giving a worthy fight to Apple.

That said, if RIM would not improve their disadvantages (HTML email, for example) they will loose the fight.

Goodbye Blackberry?

July 11, 2008

One of the interesting things Apple has added into Mobile ME and into the new 2.0 iPhone software is push email.

After examining several videos that are available online an interesting question is now raising – Where is Blackberry going to go from here?

Having PUSH email is an enormous advantage for all of us geeks that needs their email wherever they go and immediately.

Seems to me there is no gap anymore between Apple to Blackberry. From now on it is Blackberry trailing behind Apple not only with features, but also with Sales.

That said, you can get Blackberry on all major carriers (at least in the US), but only select offers the iPhone (usually a single per-country).
