Blackberry is now looking for good company to sell blackberry. That’s bad news fit blackberry. I don’t know how user v’ll manage with this issue. For now blackberry completely gone out of the game. For now BB got a buyout offer for $ 4.7 billion by Fairfax. But blackberry looking for some better companies like Google, Cisco, LG, Samsung, Intel. Some of them are interested in blackberry servers and patents. But for now only Fairfax made a bid for BB. Google not sure to take over take company because recently brought Motorola. So there’s us less possibilities from Google.

Nokia Trying Balance their Smartphone market

1200-nokia-lumia-820-red-and-yellow

 

Last few years Nokia Struggling to hold the Smartphone Market, But all these days Nokia is one Major company that gives high end smartphones for very cheap prices.  Cheaper Lumias have helped Nokia double its year-over-year Lumia sales to the 7.4 million it reported last quarter. But still we can that Nokia captured the steady market but some how they moving. We can Divide the smartphones market like 3 stages 1st level- Android and iOS  2nd level – Windows and Blackberry 3rd level – Asha OS and Symbian and other OSs  in this chart we didn’t ad Ubuntu Mobile Os and Firefox Mobile Os because now only these to newbies joined the club lets see what going to happen with the future. So Nokia’s Windows smartphones in the second level with cheapest market prices. Still Nokia is in better place than Blackberry, Specially Nokia’s Cam Quality is more famous, Now Day Nokia trying to promote their products in all kind of media even social media pages getting updates all the time they making registry for the people all the time. Some of Famous Celebrities used some Lumia series (flo rida and jeccia alba). Nokia got small issues when it comparing with Google play store and iTunes less app collections they have but still improving so we can see Nokia Reach the 1st level mobile OS section or going to keep up the same level.

Blackberry Losing the Grip

2-blaclberry-10-4_3_rx404_c534x401

Last Friday Blackberry Fall down about 27%, Wall Street pummel BlackBerry stock. Shares of the Canadian smartphone continue to get slammed in pre-market trading. It’s down 4.3% to $10.0, Now it’s bit hard to survive with the Smartphone market, But Once Launching Z10 with Blackberry 10 OS the Share level gone bit up. The company says it shipped 6.8 million smartphones during the first quarter, 40% of which were BB10 devices. That equals about 2.7 million devices. Blackberry Couldn’t Make it on their First Standard. If they keep losing the market share pretty bad. But in our country (LKA) trying to promote harder with service providers, In Country like Indonesia Blackberry Market level is High.  But the second market is very low, Somehow Blackberry Services makes some people uncomfortable without BB Service no internet. Blackberry Want to do some changes with their eco system that might helps to improve themselves.

Blackberry Messenger to Android and iOS

blackberry-messenger-iphone-android-s6p

Blackberry Most Business people’s phone, that’s what most of them know about Blackberry. But now the news is Blackberry Looking getting with android and IOS market, that means they wanted to Android and IOS user also should use their messenger. So with BBM  we can sync our mail and notification. Still there is no news about Windows phones. Still Having doubt about the BBM how it gonna work, normally without BB Service we can’t access the BBM. If they are promoting the BB service to other Phone OS Platforms also they gonna do something better. In Case they doing like that there is some good free app are there like viber and whats app gonna boost as usual. For Now to Promote and can use with normal GPRS and 3G is better.

Form ICS and higher will support with BBM for Android and IOS 6 and Higher will support with iPhones. If them can capture more place without losing customer better but if they losing more people moving from BB to Android or IOS Devices that’s Bad to Blackberry.
