    New York Times Suggest RIM Takeover Talks Brewing

    A recent article from the NY times suggest that RIM take over talks are starting to make headway once again. With the recent acquisition of Motorola Mobile by Google, talk are starting up again about the future of RIM. Stocks even went up slightly moving on the speculation of a sale. Companies like Microsoft and ZTE a major Chinese handset maker are in the mix of potential buyer.
    One thing that would make a take over a little difficult would be Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis RIM's co-chief executives reluctance to give up control. Its seems as though these two guys are in the mix of most of the issues that RIMS has. Could they be the reason that BlackBerry appears to be stuck in reverse?

    I have completely changed my stance on RIM selling or merging or whatever in the future after BBM Hackathon. Maybe it was being surrounded by more BlackBerry geeks or learning more about our platform but RIM is on the way back... They definitely are...

    With the 9930 & other phones on the way I think Rim can make a come back. I am posting this with my Bold 9930 & it is the best BlackBerry that I have had. I have had the BlackBerry 8130,8330,8530,9630,9650 & now the 9930 & the key board on this phone is to kill for it is so much above the key board on the 9650. The 9930 is fast & display is very clear & sharp. I will say Rim can make it back as long as they make great phones like this. I have noice in the last month or so that Rim is rolling out software up date's much faster than they use to.

    I love my 9930!!

    In fact, I'm going to be posting a BlackBerry Bold 9930 OS7 vs. iPhone 4 OS5 video comparison this week. With OS 7 being so much smoother and the BB phones being much faster, it's going to be a great video to see if you have ever owned a iPhone. Or if you are trying to decide on whether to get a new Berry.

    I have to say that I am looking forward to this video as I'm starting to lean towards the iPhone...Please don't drag out the voodoo doll just yet...

    I'll be recording the video tomorrow. It will be about 10-15 minutes long, so it will def cover a lot of each device.

    That's good cuz I need the comparison. With my wife's work giving her apple devices (cuz the county office gets them from apple for free), my house if full of apple devices. Everyone at my work have iPhones. Everyone, well a lot of folks, I see at the store have iPhones. I'm feeling outnumbered. Of course I like that feeling... Improvise, Adapt, Overcome.
