    Can't wait for the "internet explorer" pushes! :laugh2:
    This would definitely be the end of the storm 1's existence, since everything Microsoft makes requires 80gb of ram just to boot up....

    This would totally suck. A Blackberry phone would not feel the same anymore. Microsoft will have a huge influence in the way RIM will operate. Windows OS is such a failed technology that Apple is eating away their share of the market more and more everyday. In the mobile business they continue to fail with their Windows Mobile as other new smartphone players enter the market.

    If Microsoft wants to be a winner again, it needs to rewrite their entire OS all over again from the ground up using new technologies like Palm WebOS did. Google Android was written from the ground up 2 years ago and now look at how successful it is now.

    I think buying RIM is a just short term fix to their problems. They need to be creative and innovative to stay alive. If the smartphone market have room for a couple new entrant why can't they come in fresh and re-engineer their entire operating system. Microsoft shareholders are making a bad investment if they choose to purchase RIM.

    If this sale ever went through I might feel the need to cry and shout!!! :aargh4:

    Could you imagine all the hybrids? With the XBox Live bans moving onto your phone, because you wanted (and more importantly, needed) to make it better.

    the world would be a very sad place...

    There is no way this would end up being a good thing. Microsoft would just screw everything up. I pray this never happens in my lifetime lol.

    They would probably come out with the xBerry. To compete with the iPhone of course.

    Maybe it will go the other way around? From the looks of it, RIM is moving over to WM phones, not the other way around.. BUT If Windows buys RIM then it wouldn't make a difference...
