Rim is taking their fight to rivals
Looks like they are getting pretty confident that the announcements they made will really allow them to be even with their competitors. Its a pretty good read.

Who cares, until they change the OS it won't matter. And to all the people that think they don't need to, you'll feel pretty dumb when they do and be the first to load it up. I surely don't miss battery pulls and leaked OS.Who cares which device is better? Isn't all that matters is that it's the best one for you?

They wont change the OS any time soon. Security is still the primary concern. The government spends a great deal more than consumers do for RIM. They will continue to do so for many years to come. They drive the market for them in terms of software, and thus, the requirements for the devices.~S_A

Anyone else the least bit concerned about the ability for developers to integrate advertising in their programs AND the ability to use gps to track location of device? It's probably too soon to bet worked up over, but this high level description, the way I'm interpreting it, does NOT make me feel warm and fuzzy about RIM.

The government can keep their 1990's OS. If RIM wants to really take over the smart phone market, they need to meet the demands of the current consumers.
