RIM downhill after smartphone ascendency
RIM's downfall started with the rise of the smartphone. They missed that bus and have been doing a horrible job of playing catchup.
Blackberries work well doing what they were originally intended to do however, they've mostly failed to move beyond that e-mail limitation (while iOS and Andoird get better at everything). Compound that with the total lack of a native e-mail capability with the Playbook and one really has to scratch their head trying to understanding exactly what the company's strategy really is.
They ARE better than anything out there for email though. But their apps platform is epic fail.
said by fifty nine:For now. That gap is closing though.
