What’s a BlackBerry User Worth?

That implies a net present value of about $40 for each account. This is quite a drop from early 2010 when the value was $866.

That doesn’t sound good. At all.

Update: don’t miss Jean-Louis Gassée’s take on this too:

This isn’t a brightly optimistic picture. Today, Blackberry finds itself caught between Samsung and Apple at the high end, and a rabidly fermenting crowd of Android (official or not) clones at the lower price range.

So, why not consider heresy, or apostasy: Ditch the newer BlackBerry OS too few developers believe in, and bet on Android devices to support BlackBerry’s enterprise services.

The answer is probably the same as it is for Nokia: It’s too late.
