Sorry. I'm through with this company. I was loyal, updated to the Storm 2, but I'm already set on getting ready the Samsung Galaxy s2. Goodby Rim.
    We're sorry to see you go
    But it really is your choice. You buy what you want, and if you think RIM isn't good enough for you, go ahead and buy the Galaxy S2. Good luck with it

    I lot of users have taken the same path, or are about to take the same path as you. When it comes down to it, I have stayed with RIM. Why? Mostly because I love BBM and push email. Which RIM is in the lead with both. I have had an iPhone, Droid, you name it, and I guess it's all about personal preference, but I had like 100 apps on my phone and only used a couple. Apps are great to have the options, but a phone is a phone. And that will always be the primary function. RIM is behind badly, but they will catch up, not before suffering some big numbers as we are seeing happen.

    Personally I think that RIM has too many models out there to concentrate on. Why not concentrate on just one model like iPhone is doing? Or like Android, being a platform for whichever manufacturer out there who wants to build a phone around it.
    They aretaking too much time per model and then they decided to bring out the Playbook. Why? Who was waiting for a Playbook? Instead they could have invested that time in making a more complete smartphone.
    In any case I will stick to BlackBerry, because on my island 90% of the people have a BB and of course communicating thru BBM is what it’s being used for. And of that 90% a good 70% doesn’t know how to use it properly either.
    Nothing else to do than sit and wait, and follow the developments on blackberryos.com.

    I guess because consumers like variety...

    And you're right Joe. Thank you for that. I can't agree with you more. That is why I never got the Iphone, or ran to get it once it moved over to Verizon. Never was nor ever will be interested in a gadget phone. However, the people at RIM have to recognize that, in addition to providing secure and instantaneous email, we Blackberry folk also need to feel that we are up there in technology in comparison to the other competitors. So gone is the Storm series. The answer was right in front of them. Upgrade the processor, and give the user the ability to decide whether they will run full hepatic touch screen mode or some level of Surepress. And lets not forget when they simply repackaged the Touch as the Bold. Now the real Bold is coming out -- and it looks great -- but it will also be obsolete right out of the box unless they find a way to allow purchasers to be able to download QNX without having to by a new one with a dual core processor. I don't know. These guys have to start listening more to and meeting the demands of their existing consumers, and I don't think they are.

    Good points, I think that a few devices would be a good focus. A full touchscreen only, a full touchscreen keyboard slider combo, and a candy bar device like the bold with touchscreen and keyboard.

    Aruba huh? Reminds me of the Beach Boys song.

    Right, ultimately RIM is now playing catchup in the hardware/software department. And have been trying to catch up in the apps department since the iPhone came out. If Droid can do it, why can't they?, is what RIM should be asking themselves. I don't think that they thought after being in the lead for so long that they would need to upgrade specs so fast. People want the best their money can buy, and if the iPhone or Android has better hardware than a BlackBerry, they are going to consider against getting a BB.

    I hope the top guy's at BB have learn from this a few year's ago Rim had a market cap at 80 Billion & then down to 20 Billion & today at 15 Billion all because they were going to keep pushing old hardware & software. If you look at what Rim had being saying for some time they were talking about new market over seas in country's like Kenya , India & other market's like that. I think that Rim though that they could use the old hardware in those country's & get by with it & remember those aren't a high tech country's. Rim can't make it on just those type of market's they still need the U.S.A market. The top management screwed up big time. Now they are going to lay off worker's & the little people have to take the hit for what some one else did.
