Indonesia You Can’t Let Android Overtake BlackBerry!

Indonesia You Can’t Let Android Overtake BlackBerry!

In a recent article, we speculated if the Philippines would become the next ‘BlackBerry Nation’. A title which is currently held by Indonesia. BlackBerry has been so popular in Indonesia that Research In Motion setup the former DevCon Asia (now BB Jam Asia) in Jakarta.

However, a recent study conducted by the International Data Company (IDC) shows that Android now claimed a 52 percent market share of the Indonesian operating system market in the second quarter of this year. Android has allegedly taken away the #1 spot from BlackBerry.

“The increase in shipments of Android-based phones in Indonesia is driven not just by its affordability, but also due to its broad range of applications and the overall growing popularity of touchscreens,” Darwin Lie, an analyst from IDC, said. Lie also stated that “the delay in the launch of the BlackBerry 10, has also contributed to the change in OS preference.”

Additionally, the IDC predicts that BlackBerry shipments in Indonesia would reach 8 million units in 2015, while Android would reach 10 million units. This is truly unfortunate speculation. Nevertheless, Team BlackBerry users in Indonesia you have the power to keep BlackBerry alive. BlackBerry 10 isn’t that far away and the wait will be worth it. Keep hope alive.

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
