Through the Financial Times Alphaville, I just read a great article link about the mobile market.

While it states a bit of the obvious that no one platform can really dominate, a bit unlike the computer world use to be, it does point out a few other ideas. The one that really struck me was the idea of the "killer app". Applications (apps) don't exist simply to generate revenues, they are really there to push hardware sales, which is the real profit centre.

CrackBerry had an app wishlist before for the PlayBook, but how about doing an updated one for OS 7 phones, or even the QNX Superphone? Right now the "must have" for some people is Angry Birds, but maybe there is something else that people will really want to use. If RiM can find the next killer app, not necessarily a game, and make it available on BlackBerry phones, then they create desire. BBM is cool, but so few people I know use it that it has become useless on my 9650. So what could be the next "killer app"?
