Another point to make is that in their recent quarterly report, RIM added $600M to their cash position. This gives RIM more in their war chest to spend on a very successful BB10 launch. I'm reading that a lot of Mobile Carriers will be spending marketing dollars also to promote the BB10 launch, which I think is also going to be very important for a successful. If they can get 3-5M handsets sold in the first quarter, according to analysts, this will be a very good launch. In April/May, when these numbers are achieved, then the cool thing to do in the media is to be in the 'I love BB' camp :-)

Re: Who did RIM **** off?
I don't know how the BB10 launch is gonna work out. I do really hope that they are gonna be SERIOUS competition to Apple and Android, especially Apple. This i-this, i-that hype is really annoying like a hemorrhoid anymore...

Clearly Apple is behind this. I read about this sort of stuff in a book once called "confessions of an economic hit man", where US agencies did all kinds of nefarious things to benefit american companies.
