Look a company that listens to its consumers. Very smart move. Sad for RIM I actually like the playbook but it's true I wouldn't purchase it.

actually a smart company gives their customers the most options possible. Sounds to me like O2 is playing favorites to Android and iOS. Smart companies give customers as many options as possible.

Would O2 cease mobile phone operations if there was an overwhelming response from customers to close up shop??

Thats like saying, there's a bridge, now I want you to jump off it.

I think this is all a publicity stunt to give RIM a kick up the ass...
