PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I doubt Research In Motion really knew what hit them back when the iPhone launched. I doubt they really knew what hit them when Android steamrolled the smartphone market. And, today, I still doubt they really know what the heck they are supposed to do to turn their sinking ship around. Update: RIM contacted us with a statement on the matter - they state everything in the BGR article is wrong. Read on for the full statement.

tony,

"I don't listen to Internet radio, Skype, or IRC on my iPhone, nor have I had any desire to. If I do any of those, I do it on a regular laptop or desktop."

With all due respect, that answer is a cop out.


Why is it a cop-out? Those are things I've never done (and I don't know anyone that does). I mean, IRC? Any smartphone would be terrible for that. Internet radio? If I'm listening to music on my phone I'm on a plane, so it's locally stored music. Skype? Maybe that'd be handy. It would only be handy internationally for me, and then only with a decent Wifi connection.
