    RIM invests $1.4 billion on R&D in 2010



    A few weeks ago, Research Infosource Inc (Canada’s source of Research and Development intelligence) released public information on the Top 100 Corporate R&D Spenders for the fiscal year of 2010.

    It came as a surprise to several people that RIM was #1 on that list with $1.4 billion invested in Research & Development. Many claim that most of this amount comes from their development of OS 6, PlayBook & OS 7, but I think otherwise.

    With almost twice the R&D Spending as #2 (Bell Canada), I certainly don't see why a significant portion of this amount wouldn't be for the development of BBX.

    If BBX is actually what it claims to be, & it will leapfrog the competition, could BBX in reality be a project that's several years in the making?

    Not sure why its a surprise. RIM is one of Canadas most successful companies. Those results are old and most likely from R&D for the current OS 7 devices and the PlayBook not BBX. JMHO

    I do wish all the people that want to break Rim apart & destory the company would give them time to get the new operatoring system up & running but the investors don't care about the future of any company all they want is money right now , not the future. Rim made mistakes , lost there focus for a while but they are trying hard to get back in front. Just look at all the company's they have bought in the last 15 months to bring new things to market & if giving time they will pick up market share. Rim is doing good in other market's out side of America & they are still making money in this down turn world wide. My two cents worth.

    If BBX is like PlayBook OS then the phone will be a success no matter what.

    Id like to think that, but I am not sure if we can consider the Playbook a complete success. All we can do is hope that RIM delivers big time on this one.
