Re: RIM Earnings Out, Stock Surges

said by Robrr:

Whats your point?

RIM is up with for good reason. Apple is down and no one can explain why.

i can, lack of actual product advancement.

the Ipad mini is going to tank their stock for the next little while, as well as snuffing their client base with the release of a NEW ipad while the other one hasn't been on the market that long.

simple enough formula, you release slightly better hardware every year at the same "premium" price, your going to keep dropping people off the wagon, especially when your competitors are releasing hardware at multiple price points covering a broader market.

i still wonder how the hell apple is viewed as the "creators" equipment when it has such a short lifespan vs traditional hardware.

also, some of it might be backlash over the whole patent thing.
