By the looks of it, BlackBerry chief John Chen wasn't appeased by T-Mobile's attempt to make peace - in fact, things have only escalated: T-Mobile will no longer carry any BlackBerry device. In a press release today, the company formerly known as RIM announced that it has chosen not to renew T-Mobile's license to sell its products when it expires on April 25th, 2014.

This doesn't exactly look like smart business for a company in trouble, but alas, I am no CEO. Who knows - maybe it's the brilliant move that will save BlackBerry.

More likely - it is not.

I see it as a powerplay to increase exclusivity and see if there's any demand growth at all from the other licenced carriers.

That's the only non-retarded play I see here. Otherwise I agree with everyone else; not a smart move.
