Default Re: Even Worse Than Expected

@stevetaz - From your fingers to RIM's screens...LoL I was being generous. Q1 ends in March, so a minimum 7-10 month, and that is IF there are no more delays.

@jsconyers - True. I do not expect very many (with the exception of the very faithful), but don't forget, there are BlackBerry supporters who are using older devices now, may be in the middle of a contract, who will still buy an OS 7.1 device. Allowing RIM some elbow room. Enough to help save them? IMO, I am not sure. Slim hope. With the current issues they face, I am really worried about their hardware standing the test of time. As newer tech is introduced to the mobile markets, will RIM have the ability keep up development AND still be able to flesh out their OS so that when/if it is ever released, it will still be competitive with what else is out there.

@The Prophet - Yeah, it's a crapshoot for sure.
