Wednesday, November 17, 2004Om Malik writes, by announcing that number of BlackBerry subscribers has exceeded two million , doubling the number of active wireless subscribers in less than ten months, Blackberry has become a great force to reckon with in the market.
We covered in this blog, few weeks back Clayton Christensen's Advice to Microsoft - Acquire RIM.We wrote then that, Christensen said that Microsoft should move progressively into Linux applications over the next six or seven years, because that sector will offer better opportunities for growth than operating systems or databases. He suggested that Microsoft acquire Research In Motion to accelerate the move, rather than continue to invest in making Windows run better on handheld devices. "As the BlackBerry becomes more capable, applications will get sucked onto it. Those are kind of places where growth is," he said. "If Microsoft catches it, they'll be all right."
