Default Re: Chicken and Egg, Again!

BlackBerry has been doing quite a bit to woo developers but, yes, BB is a small player now in a market, especially in the US, that is quite negative towards it. Netflix, for example, refuses to release an app that is apparently desperately wanted by many PlayBook owners. There are said to be ~2 million PlayBooks in the wild. If only 5% of PB bought a subscription, it would generate a few hundred thousand dollars of cash flow which is surely enough to cover the cost of the app's development.
