Blackberries Are Not Smartphones Anymore

by Christopher Paul on November 29, 2012

Yahoo’s new(ish) CEO was recently quoted saying:

We literally are moving the company from BlackBerrys to smartphones. One of the really important things for Yahoo’s strategy moving forward is mobile.

This isn’t new news. Marissa Mayer is making changes to Yahoo and this was thought to be one of them. What I found interesting, though, was how she claimed Blackberry – one of the phones to define the smartphone category – isn’t considered a smartphone anymore.

What the hell is it, then? A semi-intelligent phone? A dumb phone? And if anyone says it’s a feature phone, I’m going to laugh at them.

That’s the “ouch” part… RIM being excluded from the “smart” category and not Yahoo’s move away from Blackberry.
