This isn’t your father’s BlackBerry. It isn’t any BlackBerry. Somehow someone at CNN didn’t proof read their article and showcased a picture of Windows Phone 8 while talking about BlackBerry. BlackBerry is fighting enough of an uphill battle to have to overcome media lackadaisical behavior too. C’mon CNN you’re better than that!

  1. Was it an accident or a brilliant way to troll for pageviews?

    Well, either way, they won’t get any help from Murani who’s too badass to link articles he’s writing about.

    “ABI thinks RIM will outpace Microsoft in the long run. It sees BlackBerry 10 with 3% of the market share this year, versus Windows Phone’s 5% share. But by 2016 ABI believes BlackBerry 10 will pass Microsoft, with 8% of the market, compared to a 5% share for Windows Phone.”

    What are they smoking?? The BB10 is too little too late.

    “Research firm IDC is more bullish on Microsoft. It thinks Windows Phone will grab 11% of the market by 2016, with BlackBerry trailing behind at 4%.”

    This may be closer, I think. 11% would be great (I’m not sure it’s realistic, unless MS gets their head out of their a$$ and MARKETS the damn thing).

      It depends. If BB can outsmart Microsoft and Nokia and other OEMs like HTC and Samsung and the ones that showed interest and building phones with WP8 like Huewii (sp), Lenovo, and LG then they have a chance. I don’t think both Nokia and Samsung would sit idle, because both are working with Microsoft and its Enterprise Consulting partners like Avanade to push WP8 into Enterprises. Definitely it is bigger issue for BB.
