Given how consumer oriented WP7 appears to be, I'm inclined to agree with RIM on this point (though, I am not an objective observer). There are several small things about WP7 that it doesn't have out of the box (cut/paste, unified in-box, third party multitasking) that could impact productivity. We'll see.

Why wouldn't they switch to their own product? Duh.....

Agreed, you might as well use your own product. Do you think Steve Jobs would keep a Blackberry after he made the iPhone.

Good point newfdog. Don't think it'll serve them well though. Not at first.
Seems to me that another advantage of this is to allow Microsoft an already paid so pretty much free staff for beta testing and error reporting for WP7 and it will allow them to maybe fix bugs or push out updates with new features faster because their employees are directly telling them what they do and dont like about the phone instead of thousands of phones just getting returned and them having to find out no one liked the phone after all the returns of that model are tallied etc etc. you get my point?
Maybe everyone is getting tired of RIMS crap and out dated phones and software. I was waiting for a Storm three and guess what? It's the say freaking phone as the Storm 2. What a freaking joke
Yeah.. RIM is falling behind badly. Most of their phones didn't go with a big bang as planned especially Storm 2, so why is there a need to make a "3" using the same specs as its predecessor? I smell failure in the air.
Either way, the only RIMs I have are on my car.
