Default Re: IBM wants RIM's crown jewel

IMHO

If RIM thinks its phones will survive if they sell the server business to IBM someone better wake up.
IBM will offer continued prices for just about as long as it takes the sun to set. I work for a company that use IBM for various services and in the beginning they would do the work with their employees. Today they have outsourced just about everything and the cost is off the wall. Once they get control the cost will escalate. This if anything will drive business to another device. Yes Blackberry is a great business phone but at some point the cost to use will be taken into account. Yes its all business but at this point RIM has bad management and one could hope their not thinking about dumping the business.
