No Netflix for Blackberry 10 devices
March 4, 2013 | Blackberry | 2 Comments|
After some delaying, wishing and hoping, Netflix finally confirmed they will not be making a Blackberry 10 app. Ouch! If Blackberry 10 is to be successful in today’s consumer world, must have apps like Netflix cannot slip through the cracks.
Personally, I feel like this is not a big deal. Blackberry’s target should and should have always been business users! But, that’s not their only target. Is this a big blow to the once mighty Blackberry on their road back to fame?
Ouch! Netflix makes apps for pretty much any platform that it can. They are one of the better big name brand companies that actually make sure their service is available on as many platforms as they can.
You’re right though that BlackBerry should just concentrate primarily on getting in with businesses. They will burn through some serious cash trying to gain serious consumer marketshare.
Just read that the Lumia 822 on Verizon might be outselling the Lumia 920 on AT&T. Thats a good phone for zero bucks down on contract. The Galaxy S3 will probably drop down to under $100 bucks the moment the GS4 arrives. That is some stiff competition at lower prices that the BlackBerry Z10 will be facing when it is launched in the U.S. and internationally.
Oh, I get it. So you carry your BB10 around for business, AND another Smartphone for personal use. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.
What are our elected officials going to do now while pretending to listen to the blowhard opposition. It’s a sad day for Congress indeed.
