… Now the BlackBerry Vigil

Blackberry z10

The news was not good for the Waterloo tech company yesterday.  What I had seen for a few years but in particular the past year once I could refocus on the business at hand is that this company was sailing into oblivion.  Like a relationship clearly on it’s last legs, BlackBerry valiantly put up a fight to survive in the jungle of smartphones.  But in reality it was way too late.

I have dissected their demise on many different levels, so there is no point rehashing it again.  It was a good ride and if this is the end it will follow Palm, Motorola, Nokia, into the grave, some of who revitalized themselves.

The quick and the dead in this business.  That’s all there is. If BlackBerry isn’t to survive then opportunities abound.
