Blackberry Brokers

Blackberry Forex Brokers

Blackberry could actually lay claim to be the first smartphone made available to mankind, but with the erosion of its market share by Apple and then Google, Research in Motion’s flagship product has not been a very popular buy for forex brokers. Most forex brokers out there will prefer to develop apps for the iPhone and Android than develop trading apps for Blackberry. However, a careful look at the market demographics of the Blackberry will show that it is very popular and the most widely used smartphones in many African countries and other countries where the populations are quite large.

Despite the recent news that Blackberry suffered a $1billion loss and plans to offload 40% of its workforce, we think that this will not dramatically impact the usage of Blackberry trading apps developed by the few Blackberry forex brokers that have thought it wise to continue.
