PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's about time. RIM is in deep trouble, and is seeing its smartphone market share being eaten left and right by Android and iOS. After being more or less the equivalent of a deer caught in the headlights, the company has now finally unveiled its answer to the original iPhone - 5 years too late.

What tech fans want and reality is two very different things. Lot of tech people want Linux on the desktop, still we are more or less stuck with Microsoft just like we on the smartphone market gets more and more stuck to iOS and Android. Both iOS and Android users have their phones full of expensive apps, and banks and other services they use on a daily basis works well. Why should they change systems.

To undo this situation, we need something completely different, not more of the same. Actually Microsoft have a much better chance to do this with their WP7 than RIM, and even their success have been quite limited so far.
