RIM has plans for this year and it has already started. Blackberry Playbook would have been company’s worst experiences in its history of making waves in the industry by the unbeatable technology oriented devices. It however couldn’t understand the reason for the drag it had experienced in the industry very recently, especially with the tablet segment.
Adopted steps like a very brilliant campaign might have grabbed some attention though but still it wasn’t enough to replace the tablet’s fate in the market. RIM was found selling the playbook tablet, which had its sales at around a 50 per cent discount in India.
The same had been made available internationally at an announced price tag of $299. Blackberry then could see what went wrong it seems they have stopped struggling for more. Now though it doesn’t seem much an effort to promote their tablets from the blackberry nowadays, the manufacturers behind the stage is sharpening its edges.
Blackberry will soon have its seven inch and ten inch tablets running wild in the markets and here, soon, however means some few months of patience and wait. The tablets will definitely be a 3G compatible and is scheduled to have its world wide release in April and December respectively for the 7 inches and 10 inches. The tablets, both of them will have highly advanced features and with Blackberry tablet OS v2.0, excellence is all one can expect.
The tablets will surely pose a great threat to the mainly sold other brands in the market. This definitely includes Samsung Galaxy tablets in the first place. However the fans of Samsung Galaxy series would never let the brand down and price factor is another major thing that can affect the sales of Blackberry in some countries like India, where price and brands matter more than specifications or reliability offered.
Nothing can be predicted now on the price of the tablets. The influence Blackberry has over the world would be helpful to grab some attention initially but it depends completely on the timing and surprise element that the company will need to preserve safely in the event of its tablet release.
Blackberry along with its tablets will be found unleashing their smart phones too, coming December. The behemoths in the industry have decided to decommission its BBX OS based Blackberry 10 slider handset, coded as Milan, for it hasn’t been getting enough enquiries very lately and has become outdated. Instead, Blackberry will have their new model Blackberry 10 released this September.
