RIM has pull. They can pressure devs to get their apps out now, but at what cost? An inferior product? The dev refusing to develop for blackberry? As it stands, and I'm going to use Pandora as an example, although RIM controls their Appworld marketplace, what will ultimately drive Pandora to support OS6 and the 9780 is the fact that Slacker Radio already does, not because Pandora supports iOS and Android, and RIM is angry pandora doesn't.
I could do a whole economic theory dissertation on this, but I'm a motorcoach operator and not an economist.
