If I switch to Koodo Mobile, I am bringing my BlackBerry Z10 phone with me. What happens if I want to upgrade my phone? I am either forced to pay out of pocket from BlackBerry directly, forced to switch to a different mobile platform, OR outright say goodbye to Koodo.
The fact that Koodo does not support a Canadian Company or at least 1 of their newest devices has forced me to stick to supporting Telus Mobility. Sure I can bring my phone over to Koodo and just upgrade and switch the phones on my account but that's just another hassle to drive me away from here.
My idea is that Koodo start supporting BlackBerry and promoting the BlackBerry 10 experience. Being the previous owner of Apple and Droid devices, I can say that the newest Operating System from BlackBerry surpasses the Ease of Access and Capabilities of the new iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy...(whatever number they are at now).
I currently own the Z10 and am waiting to see what else BlackBerry has in the works for a full-touch screen device. If they stick to QWERTY devices, I would like to upgrade to the Z30. However I don't have the option to here. With the release of the Classic sometime this fall, and the recent Passport release, As Well As the announced deal with Amazon to bring the Android App Store to BlackBerry Android runtime (yes BlackBerry has it's own version of the Android runtime in it's phone so you can use droid apps) This is a huge opportunity to push the latest and best devices and be the leaders in the mobile community.
It's not all about processor speeds and RAM. The QNX kernel which BlackBerry owns and uses in their phones surpasses anything that Apple, Samsung and others can come close to developing. It does need the newest Octa-Core processor or 8gb or RAM to operate. But, that's just a bit to technical for most readers though... but it's the same technology that runs Hospital Medical equipment, Flight simulators and is even going into Car entertainment systems for full control.
So my idea... Support BlackBerry, Support Canadian Companies and bring in their devices and actually promote them for the gems they are.
