PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's about time. RIM is in deep trouble, and is seeing its smartphone market share being eaten left and right by Android and iOS. After being more or less the equivalent of a deer caught in the headlights, the company has now finally unveiled its answer to the original iPhone - 5 years too late.

Apple introduced iMessage to undermine BBM's inportance. But what's actually kicking RIM's ass regarding BBM is WhatsApp. This little thing is crossplatform, so teenagers just switch from they BlackBerries whenever they get enough money to buy a decent smartphone instead.

Sure, it depends on the country. But BBM even does not work in all of them. You might see a businessman with BlackBerry in US, but try to find one in Estonia, for example ;)

Well, at least it's their last forte. Many consider Blackberry just for their BBM.
