Poor Blackberry. Hmm selling BBM was a stupid idea.

proudly_X2667d ago

I didn't know BBM was sold.. :o

Spiewie 2667d ago

Well it's available on android so I'm guessing they got money for that.

proudly_X2667d ago

I can't bet on that, but there is surely a possibility. It's BlackBerry who wanted the port, I am not sure Android users cared about it, since Whatsapp and kik messenger did similar jobs.

Spiewie 2667d ago

Yeah I only a few of my friends picked it up and the rest didn't care about it claiming it was no real revolution since as you have said whatsapp and kik do pretty much the same thing.

I don't know about smart watches being losers. They are starting off slow but so did tablets once upon a time. As they begin to find that "it" factor, people love to generalize them as failures. Give it time.

proudly_X2667d ago

No one said it was a life time failure, rater a failure of 2013 and it's pretty obvious.

gamernova2667d ago

Why is it a failure though? Because it didn't see like a smart phone? There is nothing in its market to compare it to. Galaxy gear did sell a bit but like I said, the it factor will come. Even the pebble sold decently enough. It was not a mediocre year for them and that's what I consider a failure. If we are to compare them with the other things on the list, the Facebook phone was literally sold for 1 penny with a contract a few months after release. I do not think that smartphones even came close to that kind of failure.
