CITY VIEWS: HOW BADLY HAS THE BLACKOUT HIT BLACKBERRY?

FARAZ KHALID | ANTARES

“I don’t think it has done any good – it may make people want to change phone completely. It is hard because so many people depend on their mobile phone for business or personal reasons. No company can afford to mess up like that.”

THOMAS HUS | GROUPAMA TRANSPORT

“It will have some damage, but other models, like the iPhone, compared to BlackBerry are so expensive, changing your phone would be a hassle. It is only the first time these blackouts have occurred.”

PETER GODFREY | JRP UNDERWRITING

“Obviously it has had some negative effect, but I am sure they will be able to bounce back. This sort of thing could happen to anyone! I have a BlackBerry and personally it has not affected me enough to cause me to want to change phone.”
