What a contrast.
Apple’s hyped iPhone 5S sold out within 24 hours of being launched and won’t be available until October at the earliest. (Supply chain problems, anyone?)
Meanwhile Blackberry, the former smartphone heavyweight, posted a $1 billion loss and announced it will be cutting 40% of its global workforce.
Will Apple be able to avoid the similar fate? Despite selling out the iPhone 5S many critics have been unimpressed with Apple’s ability to truly innovate the iPhone. Perhaps that is natural as there is only so much you can do with a smartphone, but where will the next blockbuster product come from?
