Wale, you are right. I am not so aware of this feature. This definitely matches the needs of business people.

@Jaden - You are right, and they haven't been very fast in making any decisions. But it does seem obviouds that some sort of change is needed.

@Eldredge,

They may be afraid to make decision if they don't know what to benefits. The board has to analysed their structure and consider the various benefits of reshuffling their leadership and appointing a new head, the two CEOs also have to relinguished their current positions in the company's board.

RIM could still recover, they just need a radical strategy that can work for them.  The need to focus on their strenghts and get someone capable to sort out their product map.

I don't know if RIM has ever realized that they have been distrupted in the smartphone market and are doomed to see their market share erode to irrelevance.  They need to consider what their core competence is and keep it.  If RIM had the right leadership and perhaps embraced just one CEO rather than two, it could take this opportunity in turbulent times to change, evolve and grow.

Jay_Bond, I agree Blackberry's email account is unparalleled. The multiple mail service offered by Blackberry is the reason my family and I couldn't get rid of our blackberry phones. I think it's best RIM merge with similar company.

Ariella, You and Anna Young seem to be having so much fun on this subject of supply chain and lyrics, I would like to commission you both to write a blog each on the lessons the electronics industry can learn from songs. Lyrics only, please and deadline? Not, "when the saints go marching in. . . "

@Ariella, Thanks. Lol I just thought it might cut the long story short by adding lyrics from Kenny Rogers song to support my point.
