  • Is RIM in a ‘death spiral’ or just being smart?


    There was a time when RIM owned the smartphone industry with its revolutionary push email-equipped BlackBerry Devices. They were the King of the empire and there were many Prince's that were trying to remove RIM's crown. Most failed, yet two succeeded in get their own crowns. Today, the 3 Kings of the Smartphone world are RIM, Apple and Google (Android). RIM is barley hanging on. Android and iPhone devices have carved out a big chunk of the smartphone market, largely at RIM’s expense. So RIM makes some ut backs and pushes on!

    That was Chen's focus. Business sector. As long as they can start turning a significant profit, BlackBerry can comeback as a big marketshare player again.
