The recent BlackBerry Jam in San Jose, California by parent company Research in Motion (RIM), could be attributed either to the company’s dying wish to see and stir up developers’ interest in the platform or to the reincarnation of the slumbering giant. The stakes seems pretty clear at this point for RIM. Either the new BlackBerry 10 does really well or it just dies a natural and unnoticed death. It is interesting looking at the both sides of the picture as there is weighting to both.It does not come off as much of a surprise that many techies empathize with RIM and the entire tech universe is looking forward to the BlackBerry 10 launch in tQ1 2013.
Most of them are generally sick of the Google Android versus Apple iOS fight which seems like a pretty ‘Tom and Jerry’ contrariety to most people as they continue to vie over everything that they possibly could.
In lieu of this, observing RIM’s CEO, Thorsten Heins, talking all about BlackBerry 10 – as he touted the company’s upcoming product – which the mobile network operators will start testing this October  – was quite awe inspiring.
For every culture that evolves – man with his beastly instincts superimposed on the burden of a civilization, it is only natural for a counter culture to develop among those who are a bit ‘too smart for their age’.
The counter culture gradually becomes the dominant one and the cycle continues.
Presently, we have many Apple and Android loyalists who couldn’t be more in love with their devices and all aspects of them.
But there are some of us who have grown tired of the same app screen that they have seen in the previous generations of these devices.
On the other hand, Heins mentioned BlackBerry Peek, which gives users the ability to stay updated with apps like Facebook but without having to launch the app.
Well, the epigram echoing in the binary spaces of smartphone world assumes the new BlackBerry to be a bastard child of a Windows Phone and an Android device.
But the pun aside, it might not be a bad idea at all to have the gene pool of these platforms and create a new one out of them, making the product novel and desirable.
On top of these reasons, the facts and figures cannot be overlooked regarding RIM’s clientele.
The company has a global subscriber base of around 80 million, both enterprise and private consumers inclusive.
Certainly, the issue of whether or not RIM can maintain that userbase is debatable.
However, it is generally easier to upsell a product to them rather than to try to win those customers back who have already left the circle.
The developers supposedly get paid better in the case where RIM does well and the bar for their entry has been lowered to a great degree.
While all these reasons point to the fact that RIM can still make a comeback, they do not rule out the possibility that if the company is not able to hold up to the challenge, it will perish in the process.
Still, let’s keep our hopes high for now and look forward to an amazing end user experience.
Plus a platform that rids us of the current menace of BlackBerry spy apps; mobile spy software; and other malware of the sort.
