re: BlackBerry 10: Not All The Right Moves
"...Sure, BB10 will win over consumers here and there, but there's nothing compelling about BB10 to convince iOS or Android users to jump ship. Android and iOS are widely supported and have massive ecosystems that consumers can depend on. BB10 is unproven and unknown..."
There are plenty of compelling reasons to switch. The Hub and being able to update Facebook and tweet directly from the Hub will save hyper connected people a lot of time over the course of a day. The security will become more and more important as we do more of our banking and online purchases through the smartphone. Electronic wallet payments will also boom and security is, again, important because of this.
Android ecosystem is fragmented. iOS and Android ecosystems are full of apps that have never been downloaded and, essentially, useless. Then there are the 1,900 flashlight apps. Do you really need that much choice?
I would look to the future when buying a phone. 2 or 3 years out, what do I want and what will BlackBerry phones be able to do compared to i Phones and Android phones?
And what about the top of class keyboard with predictive text and the ability to flick words into your texts and emails and the way it keeps tract of which words you use a lot to suggest them first.
This is transformational and will be a super hit.
