  1. Great read from Bloomberg:

    “If we live in San Francisco and every one of our friends has an iPhone or an Android-powered smartphone, it is easy to assume the rest of the world looks the same way. But when you go out to markets like the Philippines and Indonesia, you observe different behaviors… Many consumers in these markets purchase mobile minutes in advance (so-called prepaid offerings). They might have SIM cards from various providers and switch from network to network depending on the time of day to save money. It is common in India to initiate but not connect a call to send someone a message. RIM’s offering is well suited to the realities of these markets.

    Innovation leaders should take three lessons from RIM’s continued success in significant portions of the global mobile phone market:

    1. Quality is a relative term. Never assert that a product or service is good. First, determine the job the particular customer is trying to get done, how the customer measures performance, and the constraints they face.
    2. Spend time on the periphery to escape the availability heuristic. If the only data you receive is from core markets and core customers, you might miss the most important trends.
    3. Closed systems have their advantages. RIM has plenty of problems, but an interdependent, proprietary system allows it to do things that more modular systems simply can’t.”

  2. Excellent post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and
    I am inspired! Extremely useful info particularly the closing
    part :) I maintain such info a lot. I was looking for this particular information for a very long time.
    Thank you and best of luck.

  3. Meh. Blackberry is pretty much worthless these days. Mismanaged and without innovation.
