Video explains why your business needs to use BlackBerry smartphones
Maybe it is just a stereotype, but BlackBerry phones are considered to be the choice of businessmen around the world. If you ever wondered why, well, here is a video that explains that BlackBerry offers corporations more than just a smartphone-they offer an entire platform. According to VW Financial, BlackBerry handsets save the company 100 days in productivity per year. Forrester Research says BlackBerry has provided it with a ROI of 560% while the CIO of a another firm says that using BlackBerry saves the company enough time to build another car. On the verge of a new BlackBerry OS that is expected to be more multimedia based than other builds in the past, RIM wants to remind you that while the new Berry might be more well-rounded, it still wears pinstripes underneath all of the new software and hardware.

What is it that the Blackberry can do that no other phone can? E-mail? I've been getting those for years on my Windows mobile and am getting them now on my iPhone. Android is no exception to this either. Data compression might have been relevant a few years ago, but these days with Networks upgrading to 7.2 and 14MB/s and LTE looming, not to mention the drop of data costs who cares. In fact most operators charge a premium when using the blackberry APN while roaming. Security? Do you really want your phone to authenticate in the UK or wherever? Is it REALLY necessary? I can use standard encryption if I really need to, but who needs it all the time? Operators need to invest in the blackberry platform.. And why? When Apple. Android and Windows Mobile (WP7) don't.. Blackberry = meh.

i dont know if its just me, but rim's bb is almost like a silent competitor.... i mean its always android against iphone's os against symbian or webOS (although the last 2 are lagging in the race)... is it because bb's unique position as a business phone (although somewhat shifting to becoming a "regular" smartphone) or is it because of the out-dated looking OS, but some 40-50 milllion users show where they actually are in the game.... this is what htc would call "quietly brilliant"...

Silent competitor because they know where their strengths are and who their target market is...unlike Android and iOS who just want everyone on their own bandwagon...

like always, jrcrow shows just how clueless he is. Businesses jumped to the iphone thinking it would be good for business.. then they jumped right back to blackberry. The iphone is not a business phone. What a BB lacks in flash and pomp (and lets face it, thats all iphone is), it makes up for hard working business use. Regular users may move away from blackberry to the flashier options, but businesses wont.
