Re: Too little too late?
said by Linklist:Messaging and the back end management is what made BlackBerry what it was. I agree with you that competitors are quickly catching up/passing RIM. I also don't believe RIM is a turnaround story. It will eventually go the way of Palm IMHO.
Their secure messaging infrastructure is why they still exist at all and still accounts for the majority of their revenue. But even there the competitors are catching up quickly.
The new RIM CEO thinks drastic action isn't needed:
Then he is clearly delusional.

reply to Linklist Meet the new boss...same as the old boss? This is all that needs to be said.
said by All Things D :How's this for not needing drastic change?
I dont think there is a drastic change needed.
No surprise there, given that Heins, RIMs former chief operating officer, has been at the company for the past four years. If RIM really wanted someone to blow things up and start over again, theyd bring in an outsider.
reply to LinklistWhat do you expect him to say? Yep the company is dysfunctional, we have no products, our playbook only sold because we dumped it...
You think there was shareholder revolt before, imagine a CEO saying the company is shit.. nice way to tank the business before you even get started.
No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......
