RIM blows away expectations with great earnings report
posted by Alan F. / Apr 03, 2009, 5:26 AM
In other RIM news, CNBC is reporting that the manufacturer has a "Blockbuster BlackBerry" with a touchscreen like the Storm and a physical QWERTY keyboard like the Bold, ready to be announced soon. The device, which we have heard rumblings about under the monicker Pluto and the Bold 9900, is expected to be launched exclusively through Verizon in the next few months according to the business news cable network.

Hum...why were the expecations low for RIM? Probably because their flagship model blows and the only people buy it are the Verizon version of Ifags. Looks like public opinion and reviews mean nothing as long as you slap a brand name on something.

Let me guess something here... You are probably repressing emotional issues (Ifags?), and have absolutely no concept of what good technology can do when the right software comes out, which will be soon, as I am testing it as we speak. BTW Over 1 million sold in less than six months. How did your POS do?

Listen... it's one thing to have the guts to say derogatory things to peoples faces or in their presence and it's another thing to to hide behind your computer and spout idiotic and hurtful phrases, like "Ifags". It's inconsiderate and cowardly. I could be wrong, but you don't sound like the kind of guy who would have the social wherewithal to back up your statements verbally nor physically in public. So let's just try to keep conversations civil... You never know who else might be reading these.

Lets tell it like it is, half of the Storms sold have probably come back, I work for VZW and can tell you the Storm has been VZW's worst nightmare. For every Storm sold, it has cost VZW and RIM thousands of dollars in tech support and returns. The device software is horrible and it is widely known internally, VZW knows about the problems. So while 4 million may have sold, many of those were returned, which goes to show people pay for brand name, until they realize how bad it really is. Ask anybody with a Storm, most will say its very buggy or it plain sucks.

i think the storm is awesome. i mean it is buggy but i think for the most part its cause people have no patience or don't give it enough time. they get frustrated they cant use the touchscreen then they bring it back. i mean thats why they have a display in the stores.

Why are you guys trying to make him lose his job? Come on now just ,seriously think what you guys are doing and joking about. I don't think it was a nice job how he gave away private information, I think it was a bad choice. I kind of like this whole phone rivalry thing but some of you guys are taking it too seriously.

Yeah getting someone fired is not cool man, especially in todays economy and job market. He made a mistake and he understands what he did, leave it at that. As much as I raz the guy I wouldnt want him to lose his job over a net post. BB Storm FTW
