I still think RIM should embrace the Android OS and put their own superb email and networking technologies on top of it. The current RIM phones are more than capable of running Android, and to me it just seems to be a no-brainer.


If there are any brains left at RIM, they should start begging Microsoft to buy them. After all, Microsoft and RIM seem to be the only two companies still making smartphone OSes aimed at serious business users (as opposed to solely targeting ADHD hipsters who go into withdrawal if they're away from Twitter or Fecesbook for 5 seconds).

Wow, someone really doesn't like Android.

You know, Android really is a great all-around smartphone OS; the "hipster" social networking tools are all carrier or manufacturer addons. The base OS is a great launching ground for whatever end use a company might envision for it. Given that BlackBerry and WinMo are going the way of the media/social trend with their respective new OSes, I'd say vanilla Android is perhaps the most mature of the bunch these days.

The problem is finding a phone with vanilla Android and no SenseUI/MotoBlur/TouchFlo or other nonsense.
