PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's no question Research In Motion is in the midst of a major transitional period. The company is planning to launch a brand new product line based on a brand new operating system within the next 12 months, and even though the first device born out of RIM's new QNX OS was impressive in some ways, it was incomplete. There still is a chance for RIM to deliver some really interesting competitive products, but time is quickly running out, as we have written time and time again. Update: RIM's response.

Regardless of the letter's origin, much of the information is sensible. RIM does need to make some internal changes to become competitive again, to return to innovation and quicker product cycles. An organization as ponderous as this has problems at the leadership level, which need to be resolved quickly.

I say this as a BlackBerry user (using the Tour 9630, my first cellphone). I like BlackBerry. There is some app envy for other platforms, but on the whole I like the way my BlackBerry works. I'm looking forward to the new crop of phones this year, as I'll be eligible for an upgrade in December.

Could you point out a specific app or application feature set that you miss from the Blackberry ecosystem that is found on either the android marketplace or the AppStore that you would be willing to pay for as a Blackberry user?
