PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's no question Research In Motion is in the midst of a major transitional period. The company is planning to launch a brand new product line based on a brand new operating system within the next 12 months, and even though the first device born out of RIM's new QNX OS was impressive in some ways, it was incomplete. There still is a chance for RIM to deliver some really interesting competitive products, but time is quickly running out, as we have written time and time again. Update: RIM's response.

If third party developers do not want to support the BlackBerry platform anymore, RIM has to come up with an alternative:
1) Create more applications self
2) Make an emulator for Android apps.
The first is expensive, so should be limited for core/businiess apps. The second would be nice for the majority of third party apss.
