3. Blackberry 10
Much to the dismay of Blackberry fans, the promised 2012 release never happened. This earned them a place on our 2012 Technology Flops piece.
Research in Motion (RIM), the maker of the BlackBerry smartphone, plans to unveil the new BlackBerry 10 operating system in January. That is (hopefully) good news for a company that recently sacked hundreds of employees and lost contracts with the US government over security and reliability issues with RIM products.
RIM has fallen from one of the largest smartphone makers in the world to trailing behind Apple and Android products. The Blackberry 10 is a make or break product for the company. So far, early reports are positive. The new browser is allegedly faster than anything on the market and a QWERTY keyboard version is said to be available soon after the touch screen version is launched.

i still can't understand why a product that was not released is a flop, really makes no sense even if the reason to say it was a flop was because it didn't get released. its just a filler spot and a place to further criticize RIM

IMO I think they're saying that the RELEASE was a flop since it never happened. They were planning on an October 2012 release. That time came and went with no BB10. That was the flop, not the product itself.Everyone, everyone, stop fighting! Look unto me! I possess the blue flag! I wield the power infinite! The universal fabric is mine to unravel! My every thought becomes reality! Mountains will fall! Seas will boil! Day will be at night! People will...run...chicks'll dig me!

Fall, move, or hang in a heavy, loose, and ungainly way: "black hair flopped across his forehead".
A heavy, loose, and ungainly movement, or a sound made by it: "they hit the ground with a flop".
failure - washout - miscarriage - fiasco
pantless i get that the mean the launch failed but to claim the technology has failed is un true because it has yet to be released to have that ability to fail, if the list was called biggest launch flops of 2012 then i can say ok, but to put it on a list of actual product fails, then no

Correct me if I'm wrong, but since when did the government agencies say that they were trying other platforms due to security issues??
