You know how many years has been with us a BlackBerry? Their first device appeared in 1999 and was the BlackBerry 850, which was a pager allows you to send and receive text messages. It is known that the Canadian brand in Poland has become too popular, but among those who have tried, we can find the true fans who can not imagine another BlackBerry device from the terminal. Let's see how much has changed over these 16 years.
Lights and shadows BlackBerry
In general, it should be noted that the BlackBerry is a product of the Canadian company Research In Motion, which their ideas permanently inscribed in the history of the world smartfonowego. That model 850 has gained great popularity and very quickly found a niche, which is filled with a large amount of terminals. But it was not always so colorful for Canadians. One of the greatest failures that happened to your BlackBerry, you can safely ignore the call iPhone, which appeared in 2007. RIM devices were widely known for their excellent QWERTY keyboard, a model of the mail client and calendar application. Very nice flavor was the BlackBerry Internet Service, which allow for unlimited and free access to the basic functions of the terminal, which required an Internet connection. But let us return to ignore Apple. When the iPhone first appeared, the Canadian company said that the touch screen may not affect in any way their products – it was a huge mistake. As soon as he debuted the iPhone 3G, BlackBerry has released its flagship terminal, Bold 9000, which unfortunately still does not have a touch screen. This state of affairs caused the ecosystem Jeżynką phones on the housing has been successfully shaken. BlackBerry attempted direct combat with the products from Cupertino, but Storm 9530 model dedicated to the Verizon network, he was not able to threaten iPhonowi. This moment caused a decline in interest in RIM terminals, however, continued to be regarded as the best business smartphones, which continues to propel sales.
Knocked number two – Playbook
Another problem, in which wpędziło the BlackBerry, was the launch of sales of its tablet – BlackBerry Playbook. While interest in the device was a lack of enthusiasm calmed down so well known email client and calendar. It was a huge breach of the Canadian company, which quickly repaired his mistake by releasing the appropriate update, however, remained disgust. Playbook history was quite turbulent and eventually ended cessation of support, at the moment when the first device BBOS10.
Returning for a moment to the classic BlackBerry terminals, we have noted that the best (in my opinion) are devices, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Bold 9790th While the former is running the latest version of the old software – BB 7.1, and the second at a slightly older 6.x, they are combined with said I BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) and touchscreens could breath of fresh air and the company has caused very high returns. Of course, if the interest was increased, the amount of the iconic models would be higher, but sometimes it's better to do less, as well.
BBOS 10 – a new hope?
The moment of introduction of new software associated with new smartphones. This resulted in models Z10, Z30, Q10 and Q5, which allowed a taste of news and a full refresh of the classic terminal users and new users prompted to select Easy Grip Hackle. Fully touch-series models have proved to be a hit in the knee and at the same time. Initial problems with the length of the battery were eliminated by newer versions of the system and subsequent versions of smartphones, but once again remained slight disgust. Q-Series models have a kind of everything you need BlackBerry users accustomed to the transition to a new era of business. Not everyone, however, succumbed to the trend and exchanged the old to the new. Very often, there were voices that are missing so well known trackpad, which is ideally allow for navigation. Fortunately came model Classic, which combined the old with the new. Do not forget about przesławnym already Passporcie who prepared the ground for the growth of interest in BlackBerry products. The models that come out of the hands of Canadians are top-shelf smartphones, which is also reflected in the price. But this is for fans of the brand is not a problem – the biggest problem is that BlackBerry does not want to support Polish, considering that we are unattractive recipient. Unfortunately, it would be hard to alter our image in their eyes, but I always believe that one day will be for us, accommodating and come to our market with a big bang.
From this point there is nothing else to wish for BlackBerry further success and a broader view of the world. What do you think are the chances of that? I am very curious how many of you have, or have an adventure with a BlackBerry. Do not hesitate to share their stories and insights in the comments. Source: PhoneArena | wikipedia
