Update: RIM has nearly twice the Apple share, gap should continue to grow

Update: RIM has nearly twice the Apple share, gap should continue to grow

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about the US smartphone market and in particular RIM (I may go buy a T-Mobile Curve 8900 soon) so it was quite timely when I read the excellent article from Michael Mace titled Watch out for RIM. I wanted to offer some of my thoughts concerning the US smartphone market and why RIM is the current leader and the one I think has the potential to move faster than Apple and others moving forward. The latest Gartner worldwide numbers show that RIM is number two, behind Nokia, with almost double the market share of Apple. I haven't seen any US specific numbers, but with the long history of BlackBerry devices here in the US I imagine their market share percentage in the US may be even great than double that of Apple.

From the Catbird seat - VMshield 2.0

From the Catbird seat - VMshield 2.0

The traditional leaders in security software along with many startups are trying to be the "go to people" when it comes to security in a virtual world. Each has its own agenda, of course. Catbird has taken one of the more innovative approaches, that is monitoring network traffic to dynamically learn what is happening on the network. This non-intrusive approach means that it is not necessary for organizations to install clients or agents on every physical system and in every virtual machine. It also means that Catbird has the capability of securing the environment even if other forms of virtualization, such as access virtualization or application virtualization are deployed as well as virtual machine software.
