The BlackBerry Bold has been unveiled, and many folks compared it at launch to the iPhone. For what itís worth, I think that's a good thing for BlackBerry marketers. Because, no matter the brand, smartphones are not going anywhere.
There will be more brands entering this particular technological fray; some might actually outdo both the iPhone and the BlackBerry Bold. And they will drive the wireless market further into the future.
Before you know it, the smartphone will be akin to the television set in the late 1970s. Absolutely everyone will have one, and the picture will likely be in color (if not high-definition).
Of course, they will be more affordable than ever, too. As you might have read in an earlier blog, I have been looking for a marketer who has tested mobile-dedicated links and landing pages in their emails. Well, I have found one.
Stay tuned for a how-to article in the coming weeks. You'll learn that marketing to smartphones now is a no-brainer Ė if you want to get ahead of the competition.
