iPhone popularity spurs Blackberry sales

Not only did Research In Motion Ltd., the maker of the BlackBerry smart phone, see its profit more than double last quarter, it may have gotten a boost from a top competitor's strong sales.

 

RIM has benefited from Apple Inc.'s introduction of the iPhone in June because it brought attention to smart phones, and more people are starting to use them, said Canaccord Adams analyst Peter Misek.

 

"People are starting to realize, 'Why should I buy a Razr when I can buy a BlackBerry or an iPhone?' I think the iPhone was the single biggest blessing RIM ever had," Misek said.

 

The Waterloo, Ontario-based company earned $412.5 million, or 72 cents per share in its fourth quarter, which ended March 1, up from a profit of $187.4 million, or 33 cents per share, in the same period a year earlier.

 

Revenue jumped to $1.88 billion from $930 million.

I say get an iPhone. Thats what I did, its great but get ready to pay for it. If you want to go further, I would hack it (which I did to mine). It gives it even more features that it didn't include.

When I got my new phone recently, wanted to get myself a smart phone but I couldn't pass up on getting something nice and sleek. Its sort of smart-phone "like" since its a music phone, holds an SD card, navigation, TV, the whole nine. Its the LG Muziq.

I can't wait to get an iPhone, but I will have to get it unlocked because I used to work for AT&T, and I will never again buy anything they have to offer. They are so greedy that they would'nt even offer it to employees for $10 off. AT&T sucks! It's only SBC in disguise anyway.

I'd advise everybody here to wait to get one. Revised iPhones are just around the corner... or so evidence suggests.

Yeah I agree, I heard the new iPhone may be coming out this summer or something like that. When I got my 8gb, only a couple months passed until they came out with the 16gb. :mad: so that is some good advise.
