Lol, looks like a mutiny is on the hands of the dual-CEOs over at RIM.

The witch hunt is on! Must suck to be the guy in charge of their 9530 software. At least he is excused from the hunt.

That reply was kind of garbage. Just like hey guys, we just got called out, but rest assure our heads are still deep in the sand. Oh yea your profits are up, congrats. Might as well stick with that number and hope it spells success in 5 years.

My opinion of my blackberry hasn't changed since their stock fell two weeks ago.

My brother works for RIM and never has anything bad to say about the work environment.

I have a blackberry as a company phone. Its internet capabilities suck to the point I only use them if absolutely necessary. Ie, no friends with an i-phone are nearby. Now that Verizon offers them I will be switching to Iphone asap.

Wait for a dual core iPhone. Web browsing is still pretty slow on an iPhone 4.

Dual core iPhone and iCloud are probably what's going to make me bail on RIM.

RIM still has the "flash" ability, which was really the only factor that would make me consider them.
That said, I'd take an iPad in a second over any other tablet. Far too many people I know just don't like their BB's.

Too bad too, as they were a big Canadian company. But like Nortel, they just don't have what it takes to cut it in the global market. They just choked.

If nothing else I hope RIM doesn't destroy QNX through corporate fuckery.

Can't stand by Blackberry.
Compared to all the other phones I've seen, its garbage.
As soon as my contract is up, I'm ditching it for either an iPhone or a Android-based phone.
