Some pretty sick new Blackberry Concepts out
 
Blackberry has only 4.8% of the market share now. Ouchie!

Quote:

New smartphone sales numbers from research firm IDC show BlackBerry lagging far behind Android and Apple devices in global second-quarter sales.

Android and Apple dominate in smartphones, with 85% of the worldwide market combined in the quarter.

Blackberry devices, meanwhile, came a distant third with 4.8% of the market, compared to 11.5% a year earlier.

MCSL,

I appreciate your effort and candor, but the title of this thread does not mention BlackBerry - of which I have owned several.

Why not start your own thread for BB related news? :dunno:

If you're a developer looking to learn more about NFC and how you can integrate it into your applications, RIM wants to help you. Kicking off on October 4th, 2012, a new series of webcasts will be held where you can learn all about NFC starting with the basics and moving into more advanced stuff such as integration within BlackBerry 7 and BlackBerry 10.

RIM once owned the smartphone market. Its BlackBerry products were used largely by businesses. It is hardly worth repeating the story of how RIM was late to the consumer market, where it has been pounded relentlessly by Apple and an army of Google Android phones from manufacturers as diverse as Taiwan's HTC, South Korea's Samsung and Motorola in the U.S. The pace at which the company fell apart once the process began was even more extraordinary than its rise. Revenue and net income had jumped from $6 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively, in fiscal 2008 to $20 billion and $3.4 billion in fiscal 2011. In just the past year, however, the company has warned twice that it would miss its earnings forecast, replaced a longtime CEO, warned a third time and disclosed plans for layoffs of thousands of employees.

He's not an employee. He just posts a lot of articles to each related topic from different cars, to airplanes, and phones.

Sprint Adds BlackBerry Mobile Fusion to its Mobile Device Management Suite

New solution joins expanding Sprint Professional Mobility Services portfolio which simplifies device management and security for businesses

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), October 18, 2012 - Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced the addition of BlackBerry® Mobile Fusion to its suite of Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions for businesses.

Sprint is focused on Mobile Device Management solutions to help companies manage and secure devices across all carriers and operating systems so companies can deploy and maintain one solution for all of their mobile devices. Sprint is the first to offer BlackBerry Mobile Fusion as a carrier-billed application, which also simplifies the billing process for businesses.

“Businesses need a simple solution to manage and secure the growing variety of devices used in the workplace in order to protect corporate data, establish and enforce use policies, and administer the applications employees use to conduct business efficiently,” said John Dupree, senior vice president of business sales – Sprint. “Adding BlackBerry Mobile Fusion to our portfolio broadens the options we have available for our customers to meet their varied needs and mobile environments.”

Built on the foundation that has established BlackBerry® Enterprise Server as the gold standard for government and businesses, BlackBerry Mobile Fusion delivers a cost-efficient, secure, reliable and scalable solution that consolidates the management of smartphones and tablets running BlackBerry® OS as well as Android™ and iOS®, and provides a single, unified, Web-based console for easily management of all devices.

“We’re pleased to work with Sprint to enhance the value-added services that help Sprint customers manage, secure and deploy corporate and BYOD devices,” said Richard Piasentin, vice president and managing director for the U.S. at RIM. “BlackBerry Mobile Fusion delivers enterprise-grade MDM for all devices within an organization, supports the unique BlackBerry Balance technology in BlackBerry smartphones and PlayBook tablets that keeps business information and applications highly secure and separate from personal information, is backed by global support services, and gives IT departments a simple and straightforward upgrade path to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.”

Mobile Device Management solutions are one component of Sprint Professional Mobility Services. This portfolio of enterprise-grade managed services was designed to meet any business customers’ unique needs, from providing a greater level of security and management of devices and applications via Mobile Device Management to handling the complexity of cross-carrier expenses, deployment, lifecycle, policy management and dedicated support with Mobility Management. A recent addition to this portfolio is BYOD Management, which provides companies with a simple turnkey solution to manage the security, administration and shared costs associated with allowing employees to use their preferred device for work purposes to be more productive.

Teaming with trusted, leading companies to deliver these services, Sprint Professional Mobility Services offers multiple options to help solve the challenges of any type and size of organization across a multicarrier environment. More information about all services within the portfolio is available at www.sprint.com/itsecurity.

Sprint Mobile Security and Network leadership
Sprint is committed to comprehensively addressing mobile security for businesses and consumers, and to developing and raising awareness of security and protection solutions. In 2011 Sprint launched the Mobile Security Council to bring together key players in the mobile ecosystem to address protection, safety and security needs important to consumers and businesses.

Sprint also offers bundled, value-priced mobile security and safety solutions for consumers. Sprint Guardian is a collection of mobile family safety and device security features that provide families relevant tools to help keep their smartphones – and their families - safe and secure.

In addition, to ensure that demand for connectivity for mobility solutions will be met, Sprint has embarked on a multiyear network initiative, Network Vision, designed to enhance customers’ network experience with faster data speeds, improved voice quality and easier connectivity. Sprint expects to complete the majority of Network Vision by the end of 2013.

They're trying

MatWiz 10-22-2012 11:26 AM

It does look slick and the spec are nice. But don't we all get the feeling of a too little too late? Shame that they are going to go. I would't want to see them gone. I used to think that their way out would be to become an Android manufacturer or to add Android to their phone line. I know I would have seriously consider and prefer their Android phone over the likes of HTC and Samsung.

cwinter 10-22-2012 11:42 AM

With literally every phone being a "world phone" these days, BB has little going for itself and consumers have left them in droves. So I'm confused why the keep doing the same thing over and over again. "Slickness" is not what has been lacking. They have made good looking phones the past years. However, they never change their main philosophy! Same OS, same form factor, same features. This phone is going to be just another BB that will not sell, because it is the same BB philosophy wrapped in a newer, shinier wrapper.

Unless they have something different up their sleeve I don't see how this will do any better than their previous models.

AutoUnion 10-22-2012 08:05 PM

Lol these concepts will never be made. RIM seems to want to fail

Missmodena310 10-22-2012 09:57 PM

I miss my blackberry, but my galaxy is great too! This phone looks fantastic, I'd buy it!
