The vast development in phone technology is running really rapidly nowadays. People who crave for the latest technology always expect what is going to release next. The current phenomenon happens is that many people are welcoming the latest Apple’s iPhone 4 recently and it is proved by the fact of the striking sold unit rate that reaches 1.7 million in three days. In fact, Google’s Android operating system is also establishing its system in approximately 160.000 phones.
It is predicted that Android may take the second position of the best-selling smart-phone platform after Symbian by 2012 and iPhone will follow, whereas RIM which is recently taking the second place on the worldwide market may fall down into fourth place.
It is clearly seen that compared to iPhone and Android, BlackBerry’s RIM services is pretty left behind with less attractiveness as well as loyalty from both developers and customers. As you know that BlackBerry’s specification is dedicated to businesses and for this situation BlackBerry may face a critical period in facing the tight competition in more advanced technology of mobile phone.
