RIM reports Q3 earnings, has seen better times - read the full textRIM reported its Q3 earnings yesterday and, dare we say, things are looking far from great for the Canadian giant. The maker of everything BlackBerry reported a net income of $265 million - a hefty 71% drop from the $911 million it made for the same period last year. The unsatisfactory numbers...

RIM should join forces with Nokias Sytmbian Belle and therefore get i safe OS. A joint venture that will be stronger than all other OS.
Nokia can still play along with WP and again be the king overall.

I thoink the market will come back to Symbia when people realize that Symbian is ythe safest and as speedy as any other OS.

Never understood why people liked RIM devices. Maybe it was the lack of decent Capacitive screens in days gone by. So a QWERTY keyboard was popular, along with closed encrypted massaging. Goodbye RI(P)M

RIM is finished, as is Nokia. They should both be smart and sell like Motorola did.

RIM is known for??? Business phone. But RIM is losing the game. iPhone & Andriod is multimedia phone and is everyone smart phone and nowadays is well accepted in business world. Now RIM is pushing for multimedia phone. But still high end market dominated by APPLE. Mid & mass market Android in the picture. It will be interesting to see how RIM going to turn around.

RIM has to seriously look at dual SIMs, restructure the APP system as the ecostructure of the competitors are way bigger than their "appworld". Android is something to look at on the sides as a complementing add-on; otherwise, the end is near.

I feel sad for Blackberry, but it should be clear by now that they need to change business directions immediately. In order to stay competitive of course!
