Blackberry is spending more time and energy securing their lion share of the smartphone market in Jamaica and the Caribbean. 70% is the stat that I was told. LIME is about to launch the iPhone 4S, we were invited to the exclusive unveiling this Friday so we’ll tell you if Siri can speak patois and of course Samsung is making a push in the Caribbean with their Google Android OS phones – the Galaxy S II.
So that’s three distinct mobile platforms and smartphone brands making a push for market share here. Clearly the Caribbean is a sweetspot to own.
Who do you think will win the hearts and mind share of the Caribbean people in the end? Who will we crown king?
Blackberry September 2011 celebrated 70 million Blackberry subscribers worldwide
Samsung sold 300 million handsets in 2011
iPhone sales hit over 100 million by end of 2011
