BlackBerry World Is One of Worry for Retailers
ORLANDO, Fla. (TheStreet) -- When Sanjay Karwa arrived at BlackBerry World 2012 here, he had fond hopes. But these days, BlackBerrys have a way of breaking hearts.
Karwa owns and operates Planet M, a network of more than 140 retail stores across India. Life is good for mobile phone stores there. Nearly 1 billion cellphone users crowd India. And Karwa does more $40 million in annual sales peddling mobile devices from most makers, including Research In Motion (RIMM).
|Many get the feeling Research In Motion, maker of the BlackBerry, is no longer moving forward.|
After the 18-some-odd hour flight from Mumbai to Florida, he was hopeful RIM's annual confab would deliver the mobile goods his business needs.
