    Rumor: RIM working on a Apple TV-like device?


    New device announcements always get us excited. There is rumor that RIM is developing a Media Box, similar to Apple TV. The source who leaked this information is the same individual who leaked info of the BlackBerry PlayBook & BlackBerry Presenter.

    Apparently the device will be less consumer focused, so Netflix integration might not be in the plans for this rumored device.

    The device is rumored to be a crossover of the BlackBerry Presenter and a set top box, powered by a QNX-based operating system.

    Will we see this device in time for the 2011 Holiday season?

    We'll keep you updated as we receive more information on this rumored device.

    RIM really needs to stop this following in the footsteps of its competitors and go back to leading the way.

    I agree, it's time to start thinking of new ideas that will move RIM back to the lead in consumer design. I see what they are trying to do, appeal to a larger cross section of consumers, but the didn't need to do this when they were further ahead than they are now...

    No, no, no, no... I can't say this enough... focus on phones... What gets me mad is that this type of news is exactly what those letters were talking about. RIM is focusing on so many projects with such a small work force that it slows down development in other areas. RIM is not Apple. Focus on our BlackBerrys first and once we're back on top then we can branch out...
