    4 to 5 new BlackBerry models set for 2008!

    Advertisement



    Blackberry dominates the corporate PDA market. However, Research in Motion (RIM) clearly wants more. Growing international momentum and retail push are driving the demand for Blackberry Curve as well as Blackberry Pearl, promising a good Christmas season for RIM.

    Gregory Wade, vice-president (customer accounts), RIM, spoke to Priyanka Joshi about how the company is planning to fight the challenges as rivals offer similar devices across price segments.

    According to Gartner, RIM continues to lead the PDA market but its product mix has shifted towards smart phones. Is this an answer to competition?
    Competitors cannot make up overnight for the years of engineering and refinement that have gone into the Blackberry solution and devices.
    The Blackberry Pearl represented almost 55 per cent of RIM’s total shipments in the first quarter of 2007 and with Pearl 8120 (dubbed as Pearl 2) our commitment to have devices that are beautiful and rich in multimedia applications continues.
    RIM recently shipped its 20 millionth Blackberry smart phone and the devices are ranked number one in the global PDA space with 18 per cent market share according to third party research.
    We will also announce another 4-5 models in 2008 and all of them would be packed with consumer-friendly applications and design.

    and now we all all spend more money to keep RIM's stock going higher and higher. I love being an addict.

    T- Mo: BB 9700, 8900, 8220
    Sprint: BB 8330, 8830, 8130, 8703, 7250

    But there's a beautiful view of the end of the world from the pier.....

    So is RIM going to produce CDMA BB or just GSM?

    4-5 new BlackBerrys sounds overwhelming exciting. All I ask is that Verizon tries to keep on the edge this time with all that "product testing". ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Ummm, how about a little bit more description on those new models? Its almost "not fair" that he mentions there will be new models, and then gives no more details about them! I really hope its not just more Pearl models for other carriers, and that its something innovative and cool.

    Everyone is so greedy and impatient. It's like you are all addicted or something. LOL
