AMSTERDAM: CANADIAN SMARTPHONE MAKER Blackberry's managing director for the UK and Ireland Rob Orr says that the firm is not concerned about competition from Windows Phone 8.

Speaking to The INQUIRER at the Blackberry Jam developer conference this week, Orr denied that Microsoft's latest mobile operating system (OS) will have any impact on sales of its smartphones, adding that the week old Blackberry 10 OS will only strengthen its position in the market, despite Windows Phone 8 being more established.

Orr also dismissed claims that Blackberry is now a more consumer focused brand, saying that the Blackberry 10 OS meets the needs of both enterprise users and consumers through the firm's Balance technology, which keeps work related and personal information separate on Blackberry smartphones. µ
