quote: Yeah, big deal, co-CEOs replaced with their intended successor groomed by them both and sharing their views. Nice bone to gnaw on for trolls like you for sure, but fortunately not a change of direction for RIM.This was done for a few dumb investors who are naive enough to think that changing CEO means radically changing company's course. Yeah keep hoping lamers. Retro trolls of the world salute you hehee
quote: RIM is no where near in trouble. The fact that they're no longer the leader does not diminish the fact that they're still selling just as many phones today as they did 5 years ago. The market has expanded quickly, but they haven't increased their sales by much. However, their assets have doubled and their earnings per share are slightly better for 2011 than they were in 2008, despite having taken a big hit for their launch of a poorly received tablet.They have a good product. They're not walking away from their tablet. Personally, I think there's good value in their product at the moment. They have their own network. Their new products can run Android apps. I'm personally considering getting one for my wife who has been whining about getting one for years.RIM is not in trouble. You're just not really looking at the big picture.
