BlackBeery would be a good opportunity for Microsoft to further increase its mobile market share. Maybe they could create a more secure and business oriented version of Windows Mobile (possibly with a slightly different gui than the current one that runs on Nokia phones).
BB's downfall was when removing the BB portal from your browsing experience. And not keeping up with technology advances, e.g. have better displays and have better technologies to keep up with the trends. even nokia are starting to come play. they are competing for 3rd place and not for 1st place.
Microsoft should buy Blackberry and merge it with Nokia to release NokiaBerry Communicator Series handsets for Enterprise Market
or DellBerry could also be good.
BB + WP is relevant
BB + anytother OS is irrelevant to their Enterprise Market
You know who else have to split up in serch of buyer because she didnt do it right?
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2013Nothing to do with os. BB is better and more advanced than Android. BB's problems come from ... moreHigh prices? I think you need to check back in the store, z10 is now shamefully cheap off contract, and the highest on contract price you will find from any honest carrier is Free.
rebel, 10 Oct 2013Pity,Bb10 is much much better and modern then wp and iosThe whole problem is bb10, it's a total failure and it is what's killing the company. Look at iOS echo system, how it's bb10 close to that? iOS and Android are both untouchable winners in the OS war.
It's amazing how cheap Z10 is here now, I may buy one just for fun. Of course I know it's cheap because it is crap but still, why not? In any case the slashed price signals a desperate move to get rid of money-losing inventory.
On the topic, splitting is probably good, but it will leave the handset division worthless unless it's tied up to the patents division. That's the big difference from Nokia, they could sell the handset division for an ok price even without selling the patents, they only included a 10 year patent right.
I preferred one Company purchases it and get it a turn around i wonder if Microsoft will buy it now thats a thought
BlackBerry has already been doomed... it is high time for BlackBerry to merge with some other company and the launch some real good phones but if they split the company into parts then it'll bring them more profit then present...
i am no fan of blackberry, i actually disliked everything about this company, but feelings aside, we do need this company to exist, it is the only way developers will push new technologies so, it is my own personal belief that we should all hope blackberry to stay in the business, we want new stuff every day, and it is competence and the fight between developers what makes that possible, really hope these guys keep on the battle
