PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I doubt Research In Motion really knew what hit them back when the iPhone launched. I doubt they really knew what hit them when Android steamrolled the smartphone market. And, today, I still doubt they really know what the heck they are supposed to do to turn their sinking ship around. Update: RIM contacted us with a statement on the matter - they state everything in the BGR article is wrong. Read on for the full statement.

A very controversial part of journalism law (cf Wikileaks) is that if sources want their name to be hidden

True in general, but BGR doesn't exactly strike me as trustworthy (bottom feeder is more like it), so I'll go with the OP on this one.

I'm not saying that all is well at RIM, but the fact that BGR quotes a "company source" in the title but falls back to "one of our most trusted sources" in the actual article smells of link bait to me.


RT.

Yeah, these are the same clowns that told us Sprint was going to have an exclusive on the iPhone 5 (4s).

Why does OSNews (or anyone else for that matter) still take them seriously? They're full of more shit than a colostomy bag.

I wasn't aware of BGR's reputation - I can't know everything, obviously ;) .
