This is an entrepreneurial lesson in pivoting.

The BlackBerry Messenger app has, for too long, been in the tender confines of its futile ancestral operating system- BlackBerry OS. This restriction served them well, in that consumers were drawn to the OS for its very stable, affordable, reliable and very secure instant messaging app. But as time went by, consumers became more aware of and thus very annoyed at the frailty of this operating system. Consequently, there had to be a switch (to Samsung’s ‘Galaxy‘ line maybe?)

The smartphone manufacturer is now saying that even if  when you do switch-

you can still take your (only) favorite BlackBerry App with you.
