Look out, BlackBerry fans:
In a note to investors Monday morning, RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky suggested that sales of RIM’s latest devices are slowing. “Despite on-time BlackBerry 7 launches, checks are showing slowing domestic sell-through, plus impacts from recent service outages and PlayBook challenges (delayed software, sluggish sell-through),” Abramsky wrote. His checks mirror the findings of similar checks performed by Canaccord Genuity analyst Mike Walkley last week.
Americans have pretty much stopped buying BlackBerrys, unless their IT departments buy one for them. When the rest of the world catches up, that’s the end.
