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.

We can soon finally pull the plug on our BES server.

Bye-bye crack-berry, how I'll miss the whining sales people holding their phones and complaining about their unimportant calendars not syncing.

Not to mention the pain associated with emails not arriving on the device, the high price of BES Server upgrades, the problems with devices losing their association with the users randomly requiring you to re-link them, or the high failure rate of the hardware.

February, 1st will be the day I pull the plug out of my BES Server.
