This is just another example of irresponsible, ignorant and pathetic journalism. It is dismay to see that this trend is continuing to grow, but it's shocking to see it from a reputable media conglomerate like NY Times. I guess even NY Times can't escape this trend.

I don't feel sorry for RIM. Forget BB10. They made no attempt to improve the hardware on there phones. You mean they could no have put a bigger screen, better browser, better processor on there BB7 phones. They thought people would be happy with there BBM and email security and would not want better hardware on there phones. Wrong.
