RIM has been declining for years. My comment was a reflection of that.

Now, RIM is BlackBerry, BlackBerry is BlackBerry. Now the captain is Thorsten Heins.

At least RIM BB is better than Nokia! Nokia sold and closed there own OS and is relying on WP! Meego Maeemo Meltmi and S60!

Yup, I agree. Nokia should've make their own OS or continue supporting Symbian. Symbian would've be the most smartest OS, if they improve Symbian. Well, we can't do anything right now. So, we will just say R.I.P Symbian.

I think it'd be better to swim or float if you're in an incident with a sinking ship.

I also think the same, but you know, people in such situations tend to panic and act inadequate. ;)

You are a massive idiot. I didn't search an encyclopedia--I purposely looked up the definition of 'predection' just so I could copy/paste the result.

You're a $m@R7 0n3. I would just suffocate myself if I was you.

Read this before assuming that all is dead.

The next quarter results will show us a lot more however.

Good move Mike to leave a failing company that is slowly dying. Take a hint Thorsten give up and sell your failed product. There is no comback!

Dude, I must say they've improved a lot, and BB 10 is not a fail product, I've tried it before. I know BB 10 can't beat Android and WP, but at least it almost can beat Apple right now.

No this beats Android and WP? please lol The multi tasking on BB 10 is a breeze and so is typing on it. The OS is super quick to respond and voice command is so usefull and responsive
