Blackberry 10: a suicidal move by RIM

By , September 30, 2012 11:15 am

I still love Blackberry QWERTY keyboard.

The pain of using Blackberry is apps. Fewer and fewer developers like to code apps for BBOS.

And now RIM is releasing two Blackberries with TWO different screen size.

This may look like giving choices to customers, but it is more likely a suicidal move as it drives developers away.

Sadly, while I miss the QWERTY keyboard badly, I am not buying Blackberry 10 N.

When I first look at Pulse, I immediately think of Netvibes.

Pulse is buzzier than Netvibes was. Can it be mobile is a more suitable environment for such content arrangement?
