@Anne, I think RIM's leadership have lost their sense of direction. With two CEOs and yet no clear outcome? If the managements can't get it right now, will they ever come up with an innovative idea? It makes me wonder. Do you think all hopes is lost for RIM?

Is HP still around?

mario8a,

They're around. They're just waffling with alot of indecision. I think they should stick their bread and butter.... servicing enterprise customers. And doing it well.

RIM's performance in the market has been disastrous to the company.  The two CEOs claimed they have a strategy to get RIM out of its current quagmire but it's been disastrous.  It's time for leadership change at RIM.

I think RIM's performance is going as it was predicted by the analysts. However, I do remember reading about the claims made by RIM's CEO at the start of the fiscal year. All of them seem to be going doing the drain. Someone needs to dig them up and confront RIM's management over them.

anandvy,  i agree with that - Nokia's distinguished its phones with longer battery life than other rivals,  as well are more ruggedised. Meanwhile,  i think Amazon made a  boldly decision in making such approach for RIM - M&A. But how would RIM's shareholders react to such move? I believe, lots are on the table to trash out in the boardroom. And what messages has this sent out?

You are completely correct. I am usually getting a replacement phone sent to me every couple of months, a giant hassle. Thankfully AT&T's warranty department is very good about this. You are also correct about the mail and sms, if another company could match Blackberry in those services, they would lose me as a customer in a heartbeat. I have the feeling another company will step up and match those services before Blackberry actually makes the much needed advancements that are costing them customers and large amounts of money.

Amazon buying RIM - now that's an M&A that could shake things up on lots of different fronts.

@Jennifer, Amazon.com's primary motivation for buying Research In Motion Ltd. is to build its patent portfolio to defend the Kindle Fire from lawsuits that have plagued other Android devices manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung.

Anyone tried Nokia E6? Not bad compared to BlackBerry.

@t.alix I have used E6 but I haven't used Blackberry so cant really compare the two. I also have samsung galaxy which is android mobile. I can confidently say Nokia has better battery life than Android.
