RIM has patents that have some value, but otherwise the company is useless.

RIM’s value is in it’s hardware not it’s crappy operating software. Anyone who has owned more than one Blackberry knows that these devices are sturdy, state of the art and highly functional. It’s the crap operating system that makes them unyielding.

RIM has patents, large customer base, encryption technology, data compression and much more, the only thing useless is your comment.

RIM is dead, it’s technology is dead. The QNX is redundant. BBM is not a killer app anymore. Email and a keyboard do not a smartphone make.

Get over it people, your first experience with a cell phone that didn’t suck was your Blackberry BUT that does not mean RIM can sit on technology that gets older and more outdated each year.

It’s weird that there are still RIM fans at all but I read that some people can’t handle learning a new OS or they can’t be bothered to change anything once it is a habit. I understand the Crack-berry addiction.

This does not change the facts. It’s like AOL, back when you first started to use the Internet you loved your AOL, now days you would never want to be stuck inside that old technology. AOL is also DEAD now aren’t they? Maybe not officially but by all rights AOL is dead.
Yahoo is dead, not yet but they are dead technology now days.

RIM is dead, the body is a bit warm and people are still in shock. 4% market share is literally just the people who’s phones were under warranty and lost or broken lol. Encryption tech is not enough and it’s actually been failing a lot. Their hardware does suck, I’m sorry but it’s not just the Software, the Blackberry’s always felt like cheap plastic with terrible screens. In fact, saying anything nice about a Blackberry is really hard to do if your not bias in favor of RIM.
