Default Re: Local radio station asks for reflection on RIM

Great point Dubdub. One has to remember that in the world smartphone market the USA is just a small portion. RIM is struggling there but the US market doesn't control everything in the world. Yes, their media is more vocal. Yes, this media is very anti-RIM but everything seems to be taken out of context. The company has never not turned a profit since creating the smartphone market. There has never been a quarter without some growth and expansion into new markets. Less than "analysts" predicted but still not a true loss anywhere. Do changes need to be made? Yes. Do they need to pull up their bootstraps and come out swinging. Yes. But is it over yet? Hell no. Not by a long shot. My favorite quote right now, not sure whose it is is "Rumors are carried by Haters, spread by Fools and accepted by Idiots". Sounds about right if you consider the North American media where RIM is concerned. Of course mine is but one lowly opinion and it won't be popular but I don't really care.
