In the end RIM is a smart-phone manufacturer. They have only added the multimedia capabilities to sweeten their product. Apple on the other hand is in the entertainment business, it is in their best interest to make their products easy to use. I think RIM wants to make sure that is push email, calendar, nad other vital features before worrying about video encoding. But hey thats just my 2 cents.
