Well, I seriously wish RIM all the luck in the World. They really revolutionized smartphones and mobile chatting (IMHO). What they need to do now is reinvent themselves, or at least, pick their battle - one they know they can win.

@Timmor: With advent of very high level of automation, this is very low skill work. Most people can be trained for this type of work. Output of worker is very much controlled in this type of environment.

@_hm: So their productivity and efficiency is not a concerned even if they are semi-skilled labor? I think these factors should matter a lot to ensure the efficiency of the output.

RIM product everything became questionable a long time ago. Instead of cutting costs, they need to refocus on their core objectives (whatever that may be at this point in time)

@Timoor: In production environment, techs follow strict instruction given to them which in turn comes from designer in other country. This will not make much difference. But sometime, management takes short cuts and that is of more concern.

Mexico people do not do anything. Whole operation is handled by few experts from RIM. Cost will be as low as China. Quality  is of more concern.

Elctrnx, I think still RIM can work it out for a better plan as part of sustainability. RIM has to diversify its R&D and production facility to Tablets and Smart phones with 3G/4G capabilities. Most of the 3G phones from blackberry (except High end models) have no video calling facility. Another area is they have to rework the Play book with most soficated facilities/functionalities and to be independent of networks.

Barbara, actually what happens for the mobile industries. If we are analysis the market we can see that Nokia is on the way of shutting down and now RIM also follows it. Intel gave up their mobile chip plans and today I had read that semiconductor firm Renesas Electronics Corp. could sell its mobile chip subsidiary, Renesas Mobile Corp. According to industrial analysis, most of the developments are going to happens in communication sector, which includes Tablet and smartphones. But in day to day life we are hearing only about negative news.

RIM, Celestica

AT first I thought Celestica initiated the breakup because RIM is so unstable. But reading that RIM accounts for one-fifth of Celestica's revenue puts some doubt in my mind. Celestica will have a hard time replacing that, particularly if it is going after mobile equipment. I believe the EMS also mentioned some repositioning, so maybe they will go after a different market.
