    Default Why It Is Better To Buy RIM Than Apple Shares Right Now

    5 Reasons Why It Is Better To Buy RIM Than Apple Shares | The Gadget Masters

    Since RIM announced on October 31st that BlackBerry 10 has entered carrier trials at 50 carriers, its shares rallied 20.82% in 4 trading days. In that time, its shares broke above the US$8 and US$9 levels. Since the shares hit its 52-week low of US$6.22 on Sept 24th, they have rallied a whooping 45.82% as of the intra-day high on Nov. 12.

    Meanwhile, Apple shares have gone in the opposite direction. Since hitting its 52-week high of US$705.07 on Sept. 21st, they have fallen 23.01% to $542.83 (as of market close on Nov. 12). The shares are in the midst of an ugly downtrend.

    Below are 5 reasons why shares are RIMM have far more upside than AAPL right now.

    1) BB 10 Is Appealing and Unique; iOS 6 Is Boring and Old

    Bloggers, developers and even financial analysts have nothing but praise for BB 10 after going hands-on with the new OS. First of all, it is different than what is offered by Apple and Android. It takes the user experience that iOS introduced in 2007, and takes it to the next level with Flow and Peek. The user experience is no longer the opening-and-closing of apps that smartphone users experience today.

    The BlackBerry Hub enforces RIMs traditional strength in messaging, by allowing users to receive and send all sorts of messages from just one app (email, BBM, text, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter messages).

    The dynamic lock-screen is beautiful and convenient. Active Frames (like Live Tiles on WP 8) are visually-stunning and provide useful information. The virtual keyboards predictive-text capabilities have saved me time by allowing me to swipe up to use a suggested word instead of typing out each letter. The time-shifting camera has the sex appeal that can attract the average consumer. The browser has the most powerful HTML5 capabilities among all mobile browsers on the market, with a HTML5 Test score of 484. For enterprise users, BlackBerry Balance allows for a convenient and intuitive separation of personal and corporate information.

    RIM is also keeping many features hidden for now, including BB 10′s native picture filters and a video-editing app. Any positive surprises come launch time will be positive for its shares.

    On the other hand, iOS 6 appears stale in comparison. Years of incremental changes since 2007 has left it with rows of boring icons. As a 5-year-old OS, it looks dated next to BB 10......

    Or how about because RIM stock is cheap and Apple stock isn't? Because Apple underwhelmed people with 2 new ipads and RIM will release 2 new phones?

    How do I buy stock?

    actually,apple is cheaper than rim if you consider the p/e ratio=price to earnings ratio.

    It's pretty hard to predict the future . But I think the point is that these trends could continue. RIM took over 18 months to go from ~$70 to ~$6 (Feb 2011 to Sept 2012). Apple took 4 years to go from ~$100 to ~$700 (Sept 2008 to Sept 2012). These moves take a while.

    Your response has nothing to do with my statement.

    He said "apple underwhelmed people" I responded how so if the sales are strong at this point (meaning a lot of people had to be impressed) I said nothing about the stock price or P/E ratio. So umm yeah, your statement had nothing to do with my comment.

    Ya the Torch Mobile acquisition has worked out very well for RIM. Looking at the not-so-pretty icons on BB 10, I wish RIM would unleash TAT more.

    How do you say that? It is the test to signify if the phone or device has the capability of performing html 5 api's. Do you not want to see apps on blackberry 10?

    So in hindsight the article's timing was pretty good after all right? RIM is up ~12% today so far. It was up 5.72% in the U.S. yesterday.
