May be BB should opensource their OS and let dev community enhance it.
Amazon...hmmm...controlling entire digital distribution chain through kindle line of products...that'll be nice!

I wasn't dead but nokia killed it .
Just a ui and store upgrade would have gone a long way.
Same thing for meego.

What they need to do is start marketing bb 10, get people excited, the sooner they start the hype the better. No one is going to buy it if they don't know about it.

All they need in their hand is a white flag to wave. RIM has not put up much of a fight. They got punk'd by Apple and Google. My wife still loves her blackberry. But she even knows eventually she will have to jump ship and get either an iphone or android phone or even a windows phone.

Geez, another set of BB rumors.
There is no way RIM splits in two.
And no way they lose their corporate business.
And no way they need to change from their Bold-style keyboard.
And no way BB07 won't keep them afloat until their BB10 launches.
And no way the Playbook won't find an audience.
Ya know, that split in two idea ain't bad...
