CrackBerry Genius of Geniuses
I find it amuzing that when companies think of MultiMedia ready cell phones, the iPhone is automatically 1st and RIM is not even really considered. Take a look at Sling Media. The Slingbox app came out first for WinMo and Palm device (really because the iPhone wasn't around then) and then we finally got the BB clients... heck, they're still behind on a Storm client for that. (At least in our defense there, their iPhone app is not even ready yet, but I believe that's because Sling's development team is slower then RIM's.)
Bottom line is, BB is always thought of as a business handset and HAS YET to prove itself in the media market. RIM's trying hard, but in my opinion is not being very successful. One thing holding them back is the whole available app memory fiasco.
Am I the only one who thinks RIM's long overdue for pulling a home run out of their buttocks? I'm still waiting to see what the Pre will do, but RIM needs to step it up already.... the whole "We have the best Push Technology" thing is going to run out for them eventually. We're already starting to see slower BIS delivery speeds due probably to oversubscriptions of their systems. I believe RIM's biggest asset (the internalizing of BB data transport, i.e. their way of Push) is also their biggest achilles heel.
