Bad News for RIMM




As if the collapse of their stock price over the last 6 months wasn't enough, a market research from EMA earlier this week indicates that about 30% of large enterprises (firms with 10,000+ employees) are planning on abandoning the Blackberry platform next year... This hot on the heels of the massive outages in their network, and the release of the iPhone 4S and announcement of the Droid RAZR...

Jason Hiner's article at TechRepublic thinks that the only future for RIMM is as a niche player in the enterprise market, and that's only if they can avoid more downtime, convince developers to create more software for the platform, and become a leaner, more focused company... That's a lot of if...

I like my Blackberry, but I'm already shopping around for my next phone, and they have nothing in the marketplace that competes with their Silicon Valley rivals...

It's all a bit sad really...
