BlackBerry data and market share
Blackberry was born in Canada on March 1984 by Mike Lazaridis, Douglas Fregin, and became an important smartphone vendor reaching its peak in 2013, with 85 million users. Competitors’ Android and iOS success has lead to the progressive disappearance of Blackberry’s proprietary OS such as BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10. Blackberry has now licensed its brand to TCL Communication to manufacture phones with an Android-based OS and a focus on security, business, productivity and its famous physical keyboards.
Currently, Blackberry phones have access to Google Play Store and therefore can run Android apps, but their different hardware design allows for some dedicated development to get the most out of these devices. Nowadays, Blackberry apps have the 0.0481% of the market share.
Why you should develop a BlackBerry app
A BlackBerry app is useful when the target is a company or enterprise. BlackBerry runs now Android’s OS, so all BlackBerry apps are developed with the latest version of Android. Though the mobile device is completely different from other Android running devices.
A BlackBerry is a corporate target smartphone, the battery has to last more than with any other device, and remember, BlackBerry phones have a physical keyboard.
