quote: Even if BB10 is better than iPhone, Android, or Windows mobile no one will want to give up the apps and familiarity with what they have. One of the hardest parts of competing is getting people to give up something they are use to and knows works fine now and try out your new item/system.I say sell now while there is some value left. I don’t think Rim has the money to keep BB10 going to get enough market share to compete, and that’s only if its as good or better than what is out there. If it even has the smallest issue it will sink hard as people run from it.

quote: One thing I am pretty sure of, regardless of what happens, RIM will be sold off. They just cant execute anymore and hte smartphone industry is too full of companies that can, and are executing.
quote: Usually I agree with your retro', but IBM is in fact very much in the "smartphone arena". It provides a great deal of services and hardware to carriers like Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.
