Blackberries are the most reliable and secure devices on the market. Stay that way and let the teeny-boppers move on!
Sadly the above is only your personal take on the corporation's future and has absolutely nothing to do with where the company wishes to be.
Jim Balsillie, co-CEO of RIM - Earning Conference Call "Growth in the non-enterprise space is bigger than the enterprise space. The company hopes to grow further in that space with new multimedia and consumer-centric devices."
Don Morrison. Chief Operations Officer of RIM - Dow Jones Interview "We're looking to grow and expand the consumer user base using mp3 music players, digital cameras and media applications.
Mike Lazaridis, co-CEO of RIM - Mobile World Congress Barcelona, Spain "We are actively targeting the consumer user base, the company is trying to attract wider consumer audiences and the new browser along with smart applications are clearly steps towards that direction."
If you're genuinely interested in the company's future i would advice to pay more attention to the public keynotes released by RIM and try to avoid spreading personal FUD and/or personal interpretations of reality that fall far from the truth.
You're also more than welcome to acquire RIM stock and attend the investor events and stockholder's meetings like the rest of us.
The "teenies" you so hatefully bash are RIM's primary target market. And rightfully so.
