| | Re: Is Android RIM's backup plan?
Might be a good idea. Android has one thing RIM desperately needs at this point in time...Apps. I've had an android phone for almost a year now, and before that I've had several blackberries. The one thing that's impressed me the most with android is the apps I'm able to use on it. A lot of people may say most of the apps are crap, but there are tons that are pretty amazing. This is the biggest thing holding me back from reconsidering going back to blackberry. Well...also the web browsing experience is 100 times better than on my old 8900.
I'd like to see RIM thing out of the box and surprise consumers for once. They've been pretty stale and blackberry's evolution seems way too incremental in these times. Some people don't like change, but in this day and age, you got to at least come close to offering what your competition is offering.
