How Apps are killing the Blackberry

Apple has just introduced many new features for its iOS 5, as well as complimentary cloud storage. Google just introduced a new touch and pay program for their Android phones last week. What about the third major player? What has RIM been up to?

Well, there was the BBM (BlackBerry Messenger). They have dedicated most of their recent legal efforts, display ads and commercials to this feature offering unlimited chat for its customers.

However, the initial buzz has worn off with the release of many group messaging applications that allow users similar capabilities, but between varying platforms. The rest of the freshness wore off when Apple introduced the iMessage, which is basically the Apple version of the BBM.

Since June 2010, the BlackBerry market has seen a sharp decline compared to its competitors.
