Former RIM executive gives his thoughts on the manufacturer's current condition
Kirkup also has insight into the morale of the workers still employed at RIM as they fear losing their jobs. Unfortunately, because the questioning was done on a morning television show in Canada called Canada AM, Kirkup wasn't asked the hard questions about how RIM squandered its position near the top of the industry under the previous regime, who originally figured the Apple iPhone was nothing more than a fad and a toy. But that is for the historians to sift through years from now. Let's hope BlackBerry 10 does turn around the company and a post mortem doesn't have to be done over the rubble that was once RIM.
