Way back in 2009/2012, a Blackberry device was on everybody’s wishlist. Those Blackberry people use our eyes see pepper that year. Any small thing, “ping me!” “What’s your BB pin?” People just assumed that you a BB device. Even the notification sound from BBM alone made some people feel like they have made it, Lol. Then from 2012/2013, the brand began to die. I think people moved to Android devices and iPhones. It was even after the whole Blackberry trend ended I got to use one.
There were other popular phone brands, too, that just suddenly went under the radar. What happened to these brands: HTC, Blackberry, LG, Sony, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Alcatel? I think Nokia is recently trying to pick up. Those guys made cool devices back then.
Modified: I know some of these brands still make phones, but I’m talking about market share and dominance.
