    Obviously more information will come as RIM's presser (if i recall) is tommorow. I am hoping to see some hands on video of the new OS for the phones and playbook. Does everyone still just see doom and gloom or has this changed some of your thoughts? Discuss!

    Excited but still skeptical until these things are available. Too many times have we been shown stuff and promised dates to not have anything come from it.

    Are they having there own time in the limelight like nokia and samsung have done? This stuff is cool but it still doesn't really interest people other then the people who are using it. All tho 7.1 should help bring in some sales for educated consumers which are few and far between.

    I think a make or break things for RIM and Blackberry tommorow is the announcement of apps. If they found a way to let developers use android apps then everything could be turned around. Why would a developer want to make an app for Windows Phone when they could do a two for one deal with Android/Blackberry, who both have more users. Also having a great app marketplace will make the playbook be a hit. I see no reason to release a Playbook 2. Take what they have now, advertise it more, add more apps/developers, stay with the lower price and the sales will be great IMO.

    yeah I agree no need for a newer Playbook.
    this one is fine as long as we keep getting updates with new
    features to unleash all the power of this baby.
    I'm so Excited and Happy to be a Rim fan
    can't wait for all the good news Tomorrow

    From what I've seen so far, it would seem that what RIM has planned for CES and MWC is being met with positive reaction, which is always a good thing.

    I'm really looking forward to CES to see what OS 2.0 will look like, when we'll be getting it, and what kind of support its going to have. The new features in 2.0 seems amazing and will be both fun and useful to have. OS 7.1 also seems very exciting and will really enhance the BlackBerry experience.

    While CES is going to be great on its own, the news the BlackBerry 10 will be shown off at Mobile World Congress is definitely enticing. I'm really looking forward to MWC!

    Regardless, it's nice to see RIM is starting off the year running and has no plans to rest on its laurels.

    I think RIM is going to turn around their downturn this year.

    Understand the skepticism, but...

    I think RIM was a company in turmoil for much of last year, probably from the minute they decided to try to launch the Playbook ahead of the iPad 2. I think most of what went wrong for the rest of the year started there. Nothing but missed deadlines and disappointments, until...

    ...until they finally grew up. I think something big happened last October. Now we see PB OS 2 actually arriving ON SCHEDULE! Amazing!

    RIM's going to have a way better year than many think.

    Anyone? I looked up 2012 CES Keynotes and didn't see anything regarding RIM.

    I've learned not to get my hopes up. I enjoy what the playbook does for me and the phones serve their purpose as well. I do hope for improvements and I expect them to come sooner or later.
    But...
    It would be amazing to see RIM have another under developed showcase as much as WE discussed and tore apart the last one. I have faith in them though.

    Because Windows 8 and windows phone will be very related, which makes Blackberry a bit of an afterthought in the grand scheme of things.

    I'm underwhelmed so far. I want to see solid release dates instead of just ideas being tossed around. Although, the remote feature does look nice.

    RIM announces stuff all the time. Big deal. Can they deliver this time, and ON time? That is the question.
