Dear BlackBerry you need to cutting costs of yours devices first which is sky high comapre to other companies devices
RIM will go down unless they going to lower down the prices of their phone.even their mid range device cost arms and legs
Its rather unfortunate this is happening going by their Record Sales in Nigeria and some other Countries but I guess the Management have their reasons.
Sorry for all the workers, the real backbone of any organisation, As usual when things go belly-up they're the ones who pay the price, often NOT the senior management of these companies. Bet the CEO and his ilk wont be taking a haircut.
However the hard cold fact is RIM (Blackberry) is pretty yesterdays brand, all they have been doing lately is playing catchup with their products and even then it appears they've failed. So sadly it's bye bye Blackberry.
Who cares if this will help blackberry? Think about the people who will loose their jobs. They are worth more than some crappy brand name going under.
No need to layoff so many ppl for cost cutting.. Hire me and i will bring a turn around in the company.. I also assure the results and also note that you can afford to not pay me until i deliver the results. This is my challenge to all the shareholders of the RIM & promoters of the company. Contact me soon
From an LG fan I still love my blackberry with the unique qwerty keypad.

This could be one step toward acquisition by potential buyer as they might not want to include these laid-off workers to be part of the proposal. You know, to make it cheaper for them to buy. It might even requested by one or two potential buyers.
But I think this could give BB a better way to survive. Just like Nokia, BB could stay as part of other company's division.
Hope it will be the best for every involved party. Maybe not for the axed employees. Feel sorry for them.
Seriously feel sad for such a beautiful company going down like that. Love those Qwerty design phones from Blackberry. None can outmatch them in that area. Miss the awesomeness from you Blackberry. Farewell.
Bye bye Blackberry...
Someday you'll learn from your many many many mistakes!!!
Excellent news! Only news better than this thisyear is the fact nokia got demolished for pennies :)
