Time and Time again, we hear about the many reasons of why BlackBerry is no longer the king of smartphones. Have you ever wondered what a BlackBerry phone would say if it could talk? What would the BlackBerry think about all the negativity it continues to get on a weekly basis. Would it talk about the reasons how it could become a king again, or would it talk about what the media has said? If the BlackBerry could talk, maybe it would say:
Maybe its my fault.
Maybe I lead you to believe it was easy when it wasn't. Maybe I did not seek out enough apps for you to have. Maybe my web browser is too slow and basic. Maybe I don't have enough horsepower inside. Maybe I made you think I didn't research before becoming. Maybe I focused too much on the business and too little on the consumers. Maybe I should have brought more toys to play with instead of more business features. Maybe my BBM could have become even more with some music artist's help like the Beetles. Maybe I made you think every release I made was a winner, that I was made with flash not fire. Maybe its my fault you didn't see how failure gave me strength, that my loss was my motivation.
Maybe I failed when I was at the top, when others were fighting harder. Maybe I gave up when I thought I could not win anymore. Maybe it was my fault you never got more, and that now you lack certain features. Maybe it was because I locked the doors to innovation, and focused on perfecting what I had.
Maybe I lead you to believe that security was a God given gift and not something I work on every single day. Maybe I thought of the consumers as an accident, and I never honored them as I should have. Maybe I should have changed sooner. Maybe I destroyed the enterprise or maybe you just haven't heard about BlackBerry 10.
