    You have to think business wise though. If you had OS 6 now, what would make you get the new Slider or Clamshell or 9300??? Its like OS5 was. As soon as the 9700 released it took about 6 months and every old device had 5.0 OS. I bet it will be the same way.

    As with Windows & Android a new OS should keep sales (and interest) going for all available devices. The idea should be to release something that ppl want, not something that they have to get if they want a better OS sooner.

    +1 TO THAT!!! If I start thinking business, then RIM is failing. I don'y buy a new computer just so I can have a new OS. Its quite the other way around. This is worse in the case of the BB, because we've all seen OS6 out there working! Instead, RIM wants to push BBM...something we already have. WTF?

    I guess my Marketing/Sales background is making me disagree. Sorry.
    Any other opinions about RIM/BlackBerry's issue.

    May be things have changed, the market has definitely changed. In my opinion the news/surveys kinda hint at what works in this current market.

    In the world of personal electronic devices, applications and services are King. RIM has fallen behind in delivering those items to its customers and has pretty much promised more than it can deliver. At least Apple and Droid have quashed the market with "bling" items that the customer wants or needs and RIM has fallen way short of delivering that type of thing to its customer base. Browser speed notwithstanding, there have been many issues with the operating systems, reliability and customer service that many people expect from a provider. You might say " its not RIMs fault, the carriers are blocking the way for most of the things you want", but it is, by and large the fault of RIM and its reluctance to be flexible that is making the Blackberry comparable to the PC versus the Mac.
    If RIM were to follow the postings on the forums (whether here or elsewhere) they would know their customers were unhappy with the services provided, but it seems they are not interested as long as there are units being sold.
    Not a good business trend, IMHO.

    I have been a BB user since I got my first 957 on CIngular have had every bb in the mix,
    Currently on a storm 2 and yes i have had a storm 1, to date i have been happy with BB but ever since June 2010 my love for the BB has been fading. Reasons......OS it not what it used to be, there are better and faster OS's out there and RIM for me at least has failed to keep up. They have or had a strong hold on COrp email but everything else on the phone is just mediocre at best. THis is my second Storm and I have been sitting and waiting for OS6 and while everyone seems to be passing them by. And when that last vid was released a few days ago I finally said F it, and ordered a VZ Droid X.
    I think somwhere along the line RIm dropped the ball
