  1. from the look of things, I must comment that,
    BB will be tipping the world in a few more months, they’ve
    taken over America and Europe, they’re taking over Nigeria
    already, only that those in Nigeria that visit mobilityarena.com
    are TECHists (tech people) and BB seem to be for social connections
    and business. Some time in the future after your phone number the
    next thing you’ll be asked is your BB pin.

    Just watch it, as soon as the price war extends to BB bundle
    more and more people will get a BB and subscribe to it.
    Will I get a BB then? most likely, it will be my second phone after
    my Nokia phone.

  2. Let’s face it, MTN should have been in the number one slot for the top five networks were it not for their discrimination against Opera Mini.

    Now about Blackberry’s success, I think its artificial. People will soon start seeing its many unforgivable flaws and go back to their first love. The trouble is after spending so much on one, you don’t want to believe its not the best. The so much acclaimed keypad is not even as user friendly as those on the cheap LG GW300. Bluetooth is full of issues. Plus points only in email services and bbmessenger and of course, security of data. You have less than 300mb storage in most of them and you can’t insstall apps om memory card. I still prefer my nokia 5800 any day. No wonder nokia continues to lead.

    “Interesting stats, believe it or not the B.B. hype is taking the Nigerian mobile market by storm. Only time will tell which direction it goes.”

    Just as you mentioned, its just a hype in nigeria. A fad which like any others, will soon fade with time. You can see which direction its heading by the amount of china blackberry phones out there. Don’t get me wrong, am enjoying my BB but just that I love the flexiblity of symbian.
