    The continued barrage against the outgoing Co-CEO's could be a bit more classy.

    "Offshoot products trying to fill gaps that maybe don't need to be filled. Yes, a tablet is a cool concept, but can you put it in your pocket? And would you carry one around if you couldn't?"
    I think RIM solved their own problem about tablets, innovated and provided a 7 inch tablet when the almight Steve Jobs said it would fail. Today, I have a tablet I can put in my pocket and it does scream portability.

    One of the best parts of the PB. It fits nicely in my coat pocket.

    Some of those quotes are taken a bit out of context, like how anything on the internet can be encrypted. I don't think he's literally saying anything that is ever transferred across the internet is encrypted, they're just trying to make him look worse....

    Other stuff has some merit. Just because the ipad can get by without flash doesn't mean the PB and other tablets would have been better off without flash at all...

    That said they have totally and completely failed at both marketing and product rollouts, no question...

    I had a good chuckle reading that article. RIM needs some young blood, and it does not look like they got it, unfortunately I think it is going to get worse before it gets better for RIM.

    Things HAVE gotten better. . . drastically...... and they are likely to continue doing so. I find many people bashing RIM are those with old outdated phones.

    So you think all past BlackBerry devices are crappy? Sounds like it...

    I don't want to upgrade to a device with more issues, less battery life, less compatible apps, glitches. Makes sense to me.
