Hey whats up,
Ive been hearing a lot of people saying that the pearl is for buisness people and not teenagers or whatever.
I just wanted to get a general idea of the biggest age group of Blackberry Pearl owners, so vote for your age
allrighty then... it should not matter who owns what phone... RIM might be marketing to an older age group, being mostly bussines men, but i am 17 and i love my pearl. I use every feature on it except the Enterprise. I have even gotten my best friend to buy one too and we love it cause it dose what those stoopid flashy phones can not. The pearl i belive might be used to bring in the 18- 25 group in to the RIM market, which might explain why they spent time makikng it sleek and throwing in the track ball, which i love because i am a computer nerd, and appealing to the eye. The pearl is my first BB, but i have used one before and loked it but the form factor caused me not to buy it. all in all age i belive dose not matter just whom decides thst they like the smartphone.
good idea for a poll. everybody I know that has a BB is a gen x-er...like in their 30's.
Not to pee on your poll, but RIM paid a lot of $$$ for a demographic study on this subject, but the studies focused on stats other than age.Originally Posted by 5ive
RIM's Pearl is NOT geared toward converting its 4.5 million professional BB users [government, legal, accounting, engineering, commissioned military, etc.] to buy a Pearl, it's more to get a percentage of the 100 million or so non-professional, non-BB users to buy a Pearl instead of a Motorola, LG or other multi-media, PDA type phone. RIM wants to grow and it cannot if they did not come out with a phone to compete with all the other multi-media enabled phones now on the market.
From what I understand about the industry, phone manufacturers and carriers such as T-Mo break down age into two groups, teen and adult. In other words, RIM and others do NOT focus on age beyond "the Sidekick crowd" [teen] and potential "Pearl" users [adults].
Pearls are selling well because non-BB users are buying them up for its multi-media capablities, size and coolness/wow factors.
Sidenote: What RIM realized is that as more and more manufacturers/carriers come out with e-mail phones, that it would need a non-BB phone to stay competitive and grow. By non-BlackBerry phone I mean that people would buy the Pearl for reasons other than getting the BB service.
My music is so loud, i'm swinging.
