The Telecoms.com podcast – corporate shenanigans

The gang takes a look at corporate manoeuvres in the European operator market and reflects on the end of a smartphone era from BlackBerry. Jamie analyses the boardroom shenanigans around the LinkedIn acquisition and asks who ‘company C’ might be, while Tim weighs up the pros and cons of the ‘freemium’ business model, and Scott takes one for the team in reviewing a Legacy of the Beast – a mobile game from heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Lastly they talk Brexit spam, flash storage extortion and robot take-away deliveries.

    Hi guys,
    Great show,
    Don’t you think the thing that killed Blackberry was the licensing issue and the hassle to set it up?

    Thanks Wade,
    Those things probably didn’t help but iOS and Android made the BlackBerry platform suddenly look very old. They suffered from the same denial as Nokia but I think BYOD was probably a uniquely bad development for BlackBerry.
