Last night, RIM employees went to bed, working for Research In Motion and by the time the sun rose on Wednesday morning, they offices where they worked were rebranded with the signage for the new corporate name: BlackBerry; it is a move that was long overdue and ends the confusion of those not familiar with the connection between RIM and BlackBerry...

The company should inform employee 1st otherwise they will get heart attack when they see no sign of RIM tho.... Job nowadays is very hard to find...

I suspect the RIM employees were told of the new company name. Things like this get communicated at a minimum on the day the change occurs.

This is a clear indication mark my words that RIM will be acquired within the coming months!! The greater question is will the Canadian regulators allow such a thing to come to fruition.

Now we just need another phone manufacturer to name itself after a piece of fruit and we'll have a big fruit salad of choices. Lemons maybe?

So sad to see that.. I felt deeply sad when I used Nokia Lumia 920 and turn it on and not seeing the regular Nokia salute on it. Then, I went to the ring tune and played Nokia's one .. The same, it is totally changed.
I'm really feeling so sad for loosing this legacy.

I want to see BB become a successful 3rd player in the market. I was impressed by their bravery in improving their own ecosystem instead of adapting to pressure -- unlike Nokia who took the coward's way in adapting MS (which by the way sucks).

Now, if only they could do something about BIS...

I'd say, long overdue. It's not that "Research In Motion" is a cool name.
