PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Don't expect RIM to open source its entire operating system, or its radio stack. But the original smartphone company is gambling its future success on open source, and it has an expert on board to help. Mary Branscombe asked Senior Technical Director for Open Software, Eduardo Pelegri Llopart, where open source fits in at RIM."

RIM is in step 3 of the "things that didn't work out" list:

1. Launch ground breaking revolucionary new thing
2. Deny that it is not working
3. Try to open source it
4. Donate to the Apache project and declare it as dead.
