    The article has a point. Just look at all of the chatter and disappointment around here regarding the BBX announcement. RIM has made a lot of promises and hasn't delivered much. My BB, PB, and I anxiously await the future - just hope RIM doesn't make me wait too long.

    Your actually not using BBX on your Playbook. 2.0 is not BBX it is Playbook OS.

    This is true. He wrote a crap article and didn't really talk much about BBX or what was even good/bad about it. Do you think he deserves to even get paid for writing it. I don't think so. What value was there in writing it? Does he just have to write so many articles per day or week and pukes the same thing out everyone else has for months?

    Look over there RIM still doesn't have a QNX phone out lol all the while they don't have a functioning website

    RIM should have demoed the BBX units they are testing back in Waterloo, if they even exist.

    I don't know if BBX is just a pipe dream but there is nothing factually incorrect about the article. Especially when you consider RIM's track record.

    This says it all.

    "There are a lot of solid options out there, and if RIM takes too long there won't be any BlackBerry customers left to care. Time marches on, and businesses need to make decisions about which platform or platforms to embrace based on availability and real-world capabilities, not promises and pipe dreams"

    RIM talks the talk but they aint walking the walk! Put up or shut up time for RIM.

    I read the article. While the title of the article is over the top and not accurate, the content of the article is spot on. RIM has shown us an OS and a plan that looks great, but when will we see it come to fruition. RIM wants developers to abandon JDE and BBOS native programming now, and start working on BBX, but when will BBX be available on something other than the Playbook, and since they are calling the OS shown on the Playbook "Playbook OS 2.0", is it even running what will be BBX and if not will it run BBX when available? RIM provided a bunch new tools and showed off a bunch of games, but didn't tell anyone when there will be hardware other than the Playbook available to run it, or even when the Playbook will be able to run it officially.

    I think anybody could do as good or better than the two currently running it..

    But it's ok..you keep hanging onto RIM's promises and pipedreams. I'm sure one day they might deliver..although according to Jim: it's "Impossible. Impossible. This is quantifiable. It’s irrefutable. It’s impossible."

    Considering the fact that any time RIM has previously mentioned any kind of timeline and then never met them, it's not surprising that they wouldn't give a timeline for when BBX might make an appearance. Don't get me wrong, I like my BB, but I've hated the fact that hopes have been dashed every time they haven't met their timelines.

    It's not 1 but many "it's".

    And it's not days. Not weeks. it's months that have gone buy without rim delivering and making good on their word.

    Buy a phone, and suddenly people are qualified to run a huge corporation...
    Well.... obviously the two clueless fools running rim arent qualified either. Their stock has lost one fourth of its value in a few months and still in a free fall.... market cap is now below $12 billion.

    To be honest, he's got a point. We don't have a development phone available, we don't have a date for OS2 on the PlayBook. Until it's in the wild, he's well within his rights to consider it vapourware.

    OK that's open season then. Save the speculation for when that time is here.

    best article ever! rim just loves to throw everyone in the dark and dont give any damn deadlines. thats why they suck. deadlines are important in business, but for them its either they just throw it out there cause they think its ready or let it drag...until some future time which they dont even know when it'll be ready. deadlines are a MUST

    dont get me wrong ill be buying and supporting these ***** till the business is dissolved. but honestly these CEOs have to go. im pretty sure the stock will go uo 50% when they announce they are stepping down haha.

    Everyone seems to know exactly what should be done during a time when a company departs its roots, leverages the entire company to plant the next generation OS. Remember what is being accomplished here. It will be accomplished and when done people will look back with astonishment that they did it! Yes it looks like a slow moving train wreck right now but whats it supposed to look like?
    What they need to do is sell BB7 and keep cash coming in, next develop BBX and get it right. They are doing just that.
    Sorry if it don't meet your or pcmag's timeline. That doesn't matter. When its "ready" people will come wether pcmag believes it or not!!

    Unfortunately, the author of the article is bang-on. Seriously, it's time for the two knuckleheads in Canukistan to step down.
