Canadian BlackBerry users find their handsets to be more durable and secure than those made by rivals

Canadian BlackBerry users find their handsets to be more durable and secure than those made by rivals
A newly released infographic from BlackBerry, shows the differences between Canadian smartphone users and Canadian BlackBerry users. For example, BlackBerry users are 27% more likely to want a balanced life between work and play, and 43% more desirous of a life where they can be productive and make a mark on society, than users of other smartphone platforms.

BlackBerry devices are known for their intuitive emailing capabilities. That is why 72% of Canadian BlackBerry owners said that they are satisfied with the emailing experience on their phone. That compares with the 65% of Canadians using non-BlackBerry handsets, that feel the same way. And while 52% of 'Berry users in Canada find that their phone helps them manage their personal life during work hours, only 38% of those who own a phone running on another platform, say the same thing.

Overall, Canadian BlackBerry owners find that their device is more durable, secure and has a better battery life than those sporting a phone using a competing mobile operating system. We've cut down the infographic into easy to read bite-sized morsels for your convenience. Just click on the slideshow below.

Dead on arrival. There's just too much competition for the blackberry to be relevant again.

If I were you, I'd be concerned with bendable iPhones, bug-ridden iOS software and blue connectivity issues with iOS 8 and cars, and concern yourself LESS with BlackBerry.

The passport is actually a coffin for blackberry, I'll be there for the funeral.

You must be lonely, because now you're following me around PA. 200,000 sold in less than 2 days, and that's a coffin? Dream on, hater.

200, 000 on the first two days is hardly dead on arrival. Don't you ever get tired of your trolling?

It's a BlackBerry, so it gets the JOB DONE. This just doesn't hold true for Canadians, mind you. This is a FACT. BlackBerry's are quite durable and are the most secure devices in mobile.

For a sinking company, the design is a gamble...

For a sinking company, maybe. But for BlackBerry, it's innovative.

Too bad for YOU that BlackBerry isn't sinking. The Passport is easily the most innovative device released this year.

Nope... It is sinking, and it is sinking hard. especially with the design regardless the innovation, and what innovation?

10. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

Nope! It's not sinking at all. If I need to explain the innovation of the Passport to you, then you haven't been paying attention.

Well, I own Z30. I use BB 10 os for every day basis. It is fast, smooth, but very unreliable. And the software ecosystem, is stuck between confusions. Is it android? Oh no it is BB10, oh wait... They even throw in the Amazon appstore. For consumers in general, they prefer a true android phone, or go with the iOS. Not half-baked apps stuck in the middle between BB10 native and Android. innovation is useless without a good software ecosystem, and now, there is no time to gamble with weird design. It is sinking hard

This is how I know yo h DO NOT own a BlackBerry Z30. I OWN a BlackBerry Z30 and the software is top notch. It OS INDEED fast, smooth AND intuitive. Unreliable? Stop making stuff up. There is absolutely NOTHING in the BLACKBERRY'S software ecosystem that makes it "stuck between confusions". It simply is so powerful and versatile that it can also run Android apps. What's confusing about that? The Amazon app store now being preloaded onto BB10 devices is a genius move by BlackBerry. Now consumers and prosumers that use BlackBerry 10 devices can get the "popular" apps on their handsets, no fuss. How are the apps stuck between native BB10 and Android? You get them from TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT APP STORES, and the Android apps run in a totally SEPARATE environment, sandboxed away. If you REALLY HAD a BlackBerry Z30, or ANY BB10 device, you would know this. The software ecosystem is the BEST in enterprise, especially since BlackBerry OWNS some 60% of the enterprise market. Can any other OS claim that in enterprise? Nope! You say "innovation is useless without a good software ecosystem". Apple is claimed by many to have the best software ecosystem around, and yet iOS 8 is a COMPLETE bug-ridden FLOP. BlackBerry's ecosystem extends well beyond the consumer one. You would know that as well, if you were a TRUE BlackBerry user. The design and keyboard are both daring and innovative, respectively. Do you know any other handset where the PKB functions as a track pad AND VKB? Let me answer that for you...NO. If you don't like BlackBerry, that's one thing. But don't go making up stories saying that you're a BlackBerry Z30 owner and that you use it on an everyday basis just to try and prove your point. It's tasteless and lacks merit. Oh, and being that BlackBerry has the most market share in mobile enterprise, is used DAILY by heads of state, presidents, governments, the largest oil and gas, and pharmaceutical conglomerates, the world's largest law firms, the military, most enterprises and security agencies, has increased its revenue on devices sold from last quarter to this quarter, has increased their BBM users from last quarter to this quarter, has increased its BES users from last quarter to this quarter, is selling out new devices and is making acquisitions of whole companies, I'd say that they were RISING, not sinking.

android app runnning in BB10 environments never get basic NFC connection allowed. For example: android app such Octopus NFC reader never works and they crash when you try to read the credits stored on the Octopus card read via NFC. More example, The Sony playmemory app wont let me connect the Sony QX10 camera with my Z30 because it restrict wifi connectivity from within android apps itself. Believe me boy, I know my Z30 inside-out. Nobody wants half baked app, yes it will sink, and you are in the same boat

Believe ME, little boy, you don't know WHAT you're talking about. Why would you need an Android NFC app when the Z30 offers FULL NFC capabilities? You say you "know your Z30 inside-out, and yet you don't know this? If there is an ANDROID APP that's "crashing", it's because there is something wrong with the ANDROID APP, NOT your BlackBerry Z30. The OS intuitively shuts the app down to PROTECT the rest of the hardware/software when there is a problem with an ANDROID APP. The only boat that's sinking here is the one full of your lies and FUD...And you're in the same boat.

No kiddo, I need the octopus reader app to read my octopus card via NFC, and it is only on playstore. And I need sony playmemory app to connect my QX10 with the Z30. You still dont get it do you? Lol

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

You still don't get it, do you little boy? If you're unhappy with your BlackBerry(and I still DON'T BELIEVE you own one), then buy an ANDROID one, fandroid. If the octopus app is only on the PlayStore, then how did you get it on your BlackBerry? Your story is full of more holes than Swiss cheese.

It is called sideloading. Jeezz, you really are a moron. Lol

Then you OBVIOUSLY don't know what you're doing, jackass. Get a life.

so you really dont know anything about sideloading app into BB10 do you? Lol, I mean... Seriously? My god... :D :D :D

50. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

I no longer need to sideload. I've 3 app stores on my BlackBerry, including Snap, where I get ALL of my Google Play apps from and they function just fine. You have to sideload Snap, btw. Guess I do know about sideloading, and YOU just don't know how to use your Z30. Sucks to be you.

55. GreenZone

Posts: 146; Member since: Mar 04, 2014

No you don't know s#!t about sideloading app. Snap is not an appstore. It is actually a sideloading tool app, sideloaded into your BB10 OS. Wow looks like, You don't even have a BB10 device lol...

Can you read? I said I have 3 APP STORES INCLUDING SNAP, means I ALSO HAVE SNAP. The three app stores are BlackBerry World, Amazon app store and 1Mobile Market. Snap, ONCE SIDELOADED, gives you FULL ACCESS to your GOOGLE PLAY APPS, NO SIDELOADING REQUIRED once Snap is loaded onto your BlackBerry. So not only do you NOT KNOW what you're talking about, but you CAN'T READ EITHER. Conversations over. I can't tolerate talking to illiterate little boys.

Only one that seems to be hurt here is you. Must really be a pain in the bum for you that BlackBerry is still around and getting better every day.
