PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Struggling RIM will layoff up to 2,000 employees in an attempt to right itself while it pins its hopes on the Blackberry 10. Wireless industry analyst Peter Misek of Jefferies & Company opines: "We maintain that the only path for RIM is to partner with someone, to be acquired, or to turn themselves into a software company, and I think that path with become very clear to the management team by the end of the year."

QNX was earning in the 50 millions of $ prior to be acquired by Harman International in 2004, at which point its financial report started to be unavailable. And unless the sales have been magically multiplied, it is still likely to be around that amount. Picture me skeptical that QNX sales would save the day for RIM which has income of around 18 billions of $.
