British mobile carrier says that BlackBerry is dying a slow death

It hardly comes as a surprise to many that BlackBerry isn’t doing so hot at the moment. We’re not sure what it is, it could be that more people prefer iOS and Android compared to the BlackBerry platform, it could be the hardware, it could also be the ecosystem in which there aren’t as many BlackBerry apps compared to iOS and Android. However BlackBerry has a new leader in the form of John Chen who promises to turn the company around. However despite these changes, UK carrier Three does not think that it will work out.

BlackBerry hasn’t been selling too well lately the last few years, which comes as no surprise. Though, despite losing a gargantuan amount of marketshare, BlackBerry CEO believes the company has a 50/50 chance for a successful turnaround. However, it seems UK carrier Three is giving up on the Canadian smartphone brand, saying “BlackBerry is dying off slowly.” “The Windows Phone market is good for us. We’ve chosen that as our third ecosystem now that BlackBerry is dying off slowly,” Brendan Arndt, Three’s Portfolio Manager said speaking to TrustedReviews. Discussing Windows Phone 8 platform, Arndt stated: “The customer experience is great, the customer feedback is great on Windows Phone and is higher than some of the Android stuff.” “It has done really well at the mid and low end for us, the top end is still needing that killer product to make it a big success and I hope that is coming and coming soon,” said Arndt.
