I guess I am the last guy on the planet who loves BlackBerry. I am posting on Playbook, tethered to a 4g 9860. They are fantastic!

I guess they were rolled by Android and Apple.

With a product portfolio that remains largely unchanged for the past 10 years, and Sr. Management who appear to be foolishly making knee-jerk decisions; I do not see this company surviving much past Christmas. I expect this company to be purchased and broken up much earlier than the experts.

With the Playbook coming out, and the latest OS already announced - version 10; this means that if you buy a brand spanking new Blackberry today - it will be orphaned without support at the end of the year.

This does not either inspire confidence, nor motivate a company to purchase a replacement phone for the next 3-6 months. Or, they could purchase an Android/iPhone today - and get what they need accomplished.

Blackberry remained complaicent and failed to innovate for 10 years; this is the price you pay for complaicency in a commodity market (and yes, cell phones are indeed a commodity).

RIM makes crappy devices, have been forced to use them for the past 7 years, the BB Torch is a complete POS.

They should have gotten on the Android bandwagon. Their most important feature was their fast and secure network of servers. They could have developed Android clients for their services.
