Former BlackBerry and BlackBerryCool Editor Doug Soltys Talks IBM and Apple Deal


Doug Soltys is the former Editor in Chief of BlackBerryCool as well as a former employee of BlackBerry as its Blog Manager. Today, he spoke on CBC’s The National to discuss the partnership between Apple and IBM.

It’s an interesting discussion as everyone wants to know how this partnership will affect BlackBerry. While Apple doesn’t have the ultra-high security needed for government and defense, those clients may pale in significance to the clients that IBM may lure to Apple with its enterprise app offerings. Also, it’s worth noting that IBM has 430,000 employees and Apple shipped 50x what BlackBerry shipped in Q4 2013. It’s an uphill battle for sure.

Here is a link to The National’s video on the IBM and Apple deal with Doug coming in at the end.

    Wrong. IBM has a lot more then 100k employees….just Google it. I think it is more then 400k.
    Now, what if 25% of that workforce going to get an iPhone and/or an iPad?!

    You’re right. I was thinking 100K employees dedicated to mobility. I updated the post. Thanks.
