RIM might acquire shares in Dropbox and see what that cloud thing is all about
With companies like HTC and Microsoft showing willingness to have cloud-based services of their own and with the launch of Apple's iCloud right around the corner, it sure makes sense for RIM to be interested in finding out what all that cloud thing is all about. Furthermore, expanding its portfolio of services might very well be a part of RIM's rumored Operation Disruptive Transformation. On the other hand, Dropbox has not been known to be the most secure cloud out there (as those who suffered from the “no-password” glitch can confirm), and RIM's BlackBerrys have a well-established reputation for being pretty tough to crack.
How would you feel if Dropbox became seamlessly integrated with BlackBerry OS 7 one day? Or perhaps, the existing Dropbox client is enough to satisfy all your cloud-based storage needs? Feel free to drop a comment below and tell us what you think.

Of course RIM want to see the demand of cloud-based storage amongst its customer base. Should it be high, I am sure they will expand DropBox. And there is no need to worry about the cloud not covering us all. I mean, RIM are supplying its customers with data intensive products such as BBM, BIS and BES. And currently, there are no other OEMs supplying such. So this cloud thing will work very well for RIM.
