Lightbulb RIM needs to enhance strategy to retain/gain market share.

Please Login to Remove!

Since there is no other method of communicating with RIM about strategy, here goes.

CEO Jim Basillie should consider the following product enhancements immediately.

1) Implement a feature in the BlackBerry Desktop Software (BB DS) that allows a Notebook/Netbook/Tablet to be used as a supersized BB user interface. The BB roller ball should act as a pointing device for the Notebook/Netbook/Tablet (without disabling the other native pointing devices).
2) Enable tethering for the IP modem function via WiFi between the Notebook/Netbook/Tablet and the BB (not just USB cable or Bluetooth).
3) Ensure that the Citrix Receiver product performs well in three modes:
a. Running on the BB
b. Running on the BB but using the BB DS supersized BB user interface
c. Running on the Notebook/Netbook/Tablet with the BB in IP Modem mode
4) Ensure that the BB touch models can act as a mouse for the Citrix Receiver (just like the iPhone/iPad combination).
5) Provide a new operating mode/indicator (LED) that is visible to airline attendants that indicates that the cellular radio has been turned off so that the BB can be used in-flight while retaining Bluetooth and/or WiFi
6) Do NOT invest in implementing a companion tablet/viewer/netbook. Let others beat their brains out in those commodity markets. Focus upon software fees if possible.

You do realize that this forum has nothing to do with RIM? Posting here is not communicating with RIM.

What makes people think they can make a post and expect a company as large as RIM to listen based on a whim...

Besides doesn't Red Fly resolve one of those issues?

I can't see the need for any of his/her/their suggestions.

I'm going to a guess a place that utilizes Citrix very heavily.

And wants to believe that their employees will use a 4" screen for detailed Citrix work.

Silly.

"Sir, your BlackBerry is blinking red, not chartreuse, as prescribed Blackberry for use in in-flight mode. I'll have to call the air marshal."

That would be the same group that currently says "Please turn off your Game Boys and Palm Pilots", right?

Trolling. Again, we'll never see him again.

Well, in case RIM is listening, can I have a free phone with service paid up for life? I've been a very good boy this year.

Hold on there. You didn't think that through. You want free phones with service paid up for life. Actually, you want free blackberrys. A blackberry has a phone; it isn't a phone.
