What a difference a few years make. RIM is a case study of the perils of resting on your laurels....

@toaster - BBX units won't be shipping until after the XMAS season for 2011 is done and gone with. Meanwhile, the iPhone 4S and Android offerings from HTC, Moto and Sammy (there are others, but these are the major players) are sucking the oxygen out of the room for everyone else, RIM included. It is just a matter of how much market share RIM bleeds, not whether.

RIM needed to release the 9900/9930 in 2009 as their follow-on to the 9000. But they didn't and the rest is history.

If Blackberry wanted to sell more phones they must be using Android OS.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or you actually think this.
