Default Chicken and Egg, Again!

Please Login to Remove!

I want a particular set of texts on our PlayBooks and Torches. In the email exchange with the publisher I discovered they have the product for the Torches but not the Playbook. No surprise there.

But, the representative went on to say "I don't know how much different these new BlackBerry platforms are but in all honesty, we'll have to see some significant market response to consider these new devices."

Chicken and Egg situation again. I'm enough out of the techie loop that I haven't a clue how much money it costs to update a product to the new devices. I do know that for OS like Windows there are enough hooks it really is relatively simple.

Could it be that the device market is so dominated by a few big players the smaller ones have little chance of successfully breaking in. Despite its' history Blackberry has to be considered a little guy trying to break into a gigantic market.
