TieGo Another RIM Blackberry Competitor Emerges
We’re having a hard time keeping track of all these new companies offering its own version of push email technology. You have Good Technology and Visto which right now are the bigger players that pose the most threat for RIM. Let’s not count out some of the lesser known players like iAnywhere, SEVEN, and now TieGo which can easily come out of no where and upset RIM. Where RIM once had room to stretch it’s arms out in the barren land of push email now are definantly feeling the squeeze. Mark Evans a reporter for The National writes on his personal blog,
My take is they’re reluctant to be seen as a one-trick pony in the fear that another wireless e-mail solution could come out of nowhere to steal their thunder. By protraying themselves as a wireless platform developer, they are trying to give the impression the threat of an e-mail competitor is already being addressed.
