Amazon Thinks It Can Beat Blackberry at Smartphones

Amazon Thinks It Can Beat Blackberry at Smartphones

TheStreet (June 19, 2014) — Amazon may be late to the smartphone market with its new Fire phone, but it clearly thinks it can do better than Blackberry. Blackberry once owned the mobile phone market, but has never recovered from its decision to keep the keyboard. Ari Zoldan, CEO of Quantum Networks, says the key difference between the two companies is that Amazon has the safety net of its retail operation to fall back on, whereas Blackberry's sole business is the phone. Zoldan says Blackberry isn't going down without a fight though, in its latest earnings report the company said it sold 1.6 million phones. Debra Borchardt reports from Wall Street.

Ford May Be SYNCing With BlackBerry, Ditching Microsoft

TheStreet (Feb. 24, 2014) — Shares of BlackBerry are rising on Monday on reports that Ford is turning to the beleagured tech company to power its Sync voice-activated system. A partnership would be a significant achievement for BlackBerry, which has been struggling for years. In effect, Ford will be ditching Microsoft, whose voice-activated software has been the basis of Ford's Sync system since it was introduced in 2007. BlackBerry's QNX Software Systems is already featured in Audi and BMW vehicles, but would significantly expand its presence, as Ford has built more than 10 million vehicles worldwide that are equipped with Sync software.
