PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Under intense pressure from a group of shareholders, Research in Motion is preparing to unveil a corporate shakeup at the beleaguered BlackBerry maker that could see co-founders Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie relinquish their titles as co-chairmen of the board, according to sources. Barbara Stymiest, an independent director who joined RIM's board in 2007, is believed to be the leading candidate to replace Messrs. Balsillie and Lazaridis as chair, sources familiar with events said."

I would like RIM to die a quick death.

While I do appreciate the technology this is an engineering company who has basically been putting out slightly different shades of the same phone for over ten years.

I am embarrassed when someone shows me their Iphone and my corporate blackberry can barely scroll through pictures (on a little cub, not even the screen).

Yes - I do get the security features. Don't even get me started on their horrific web browser, or the need to reboot!

Die, RIM, die!! May android crush you!

I have thought for a while that the Apple thing on a multi-year scale will basically be a bit of a fad. Android is already outselling them.
