Go back five years and BlackBerry was the big players in the business sector, but move forward to present day and the landscape is a little different. Back then the iPhone was just getting off the ground and Android was just about to test the waters with the first Android powered handset. Now those two platforms have changed the business landscape for the time being, but with the launch of BlackBerry 10 it shows that the Canadian company is not about to give up soon.
Enterprise users are still very important to BlackBerry, which is why they have more than 100 UK businesses trying out BB10. These organizations will be trialing BlackBerry 10 features to see if they have anything new and unique to offer when compared to rival mobile OS platforms.
A lot of effort is being put into BlackBerry 10 UK businesses, and a fine example of this was how the first BB10 device was launched in that country before Canada and long before the US market. It’s not just big corporations trying out the latest version of BlackBerry becasue a recent article reports that certain health organizations in the UK are also seeing if the new platform is perfect for their day-to-day use.
BlackBerry 10 for business users is far more important now than it ever was and if these tests prove successful then there is the hope that the adoption rate for this platform will show that there is still life in the old dog yet.
Since the release of the Blackberry Z10 it seems as though sales have been better than expected, and while there are reports that the new handset has been outselling the iPhone and Galaxy S3, we find that a little hard to believe.
