SourceFirst quarter results offer a grim look inside the troubled Blackberry maker. The company will fire 5,000 employees and delay its upcoming operating system.
There is nothing worse than delaying BB10, they still had a chance releasing it this year, next year they will be facing Android, iOS and the 2 new kids on the block, WP8 and Tizen which both release this year. Absolutely no way they will come out on top since it seems they already have problems with their OS, when released it certainly won't measure up to iOS or Android and will end up being loved by BB diehard fans and no one else. WebOS all over again
BB still has 3rd world market share by the nuts. They will survive.
So what you're saying is there are 5000 rim-jobs on the line here...
There'll be a buy out when shares drop to acceptable levels.
is it possible that if Google buys out RIM that they then can offer a BIS type service for Android?
I rate if they were brave they would perhaps try stick an android version on it.

They already declined an offer from Microsoft to change phones to Windows Phone OS and be a second partner following Nokia, and Andy openly told them they are free to download the source code for Android and start migrating, again refused.
If I was a RIM shareholder I would be sooo pissed at em it would not have been funny.
