Blackberry and Nokia: Recovery or Collapse?
Zack Whittaker, ZDNet
I was optimistic for a time. (Yes, it happens. Rarely.)
As a kid growing up, I used a Nokia, as did practically everyone else. Kids, adults and business folk alike all used a Nokia for some time during the mid-to-late '90s. And then the BlackBerry craze began during the mid-to-late 2000s, and I, like every other teenager, student and Generation Y'er during the latter part of the decade, owned one.
And then Apple and Google came along and stamped on the market with a range of revolutionary touch-screen phones. Progression is progression, and we can't begrudge the iPhone and Android makers for advancing the stale and stunted state of the mobile market.
