PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless RIM's first quarter results are in and things don't look good. . . RIM said it shipped 13.2 million BlackBerrys and 500,000 PlayBooks. Keep in mind that number is shipped, not sold. That means many of those products could be in the channel or sitting on store shelves somewhere. The company also announced a "headcount reduction" to keep costs in line.

I can't imagine how different things would be in the Smartphone landscape if RIMM had merged with Palm. WebOS is a fantastic OS and Palm brings alot to the table in mobile productivity. If just 20% of Blackberry users upgraded to WebOS powered Blackberries, the WebOS platform would have taken off via word of mouth. HP is a great company with plenty of marketing muscle, but I don't think they will be successful in putting WebOS in the hands of users. RIP WebOS, and RIP RIMM
