Back then it was Samsung, Apple and HTC running the smartphone game now they're still there but Google, Huawei, Sony are serious players too.





To be fair, the BB was a smartphone, just not a very smart smartphone. The computer like touch screen that came along in the form of the iPhone just made it look archaic in comparison. RIMs whole USP was encrypted servers keeping BBM secure, when Apple came along and offered the iPhone with encrypted iMessage, there was one less reason to need the BB.

People my age then would only use BB's for chicks lmao that was it.

Once proper smartphones hit their stride, BB took way too long to evolve. There was a ton of innovation in this field at the time, so it was pretty hard to keep up. The last couple of years haven't really been that innovative imo. It seems to be a case where there are just spec upgrades and slight aesthetic adjustments but from a feature standpoint it's hit a deadlock. You know when companies that are showing emoticons as one of their lead features of their new phone that it's a dead thing on that front lol.

I'm just waiting on the technology to improve on the battery front. I wish we had the battery life of phones of 15 years ago. Those mofos lasted for ages obviously because they hardly did anything but i'm sure it'll get there at some point.

The smartphone as we know it will probably disappear and be replaced with a much smaller device like the smartwatch with AR glasses in the future.
