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.

The app ecosystems are pretty much locked. The next disruption has to make current apps irrelevant just as IOS and Android has shown how Windows apps are irrelevant on mobile device.
This could be a decent HTML5 developer environment but even Google has a hard time delivering it. That could be a disruption in a way we use mobile devices. Or it could be a prove that apps are not that important anyway. I would love to see a study that shows how much users in various places on the world are dependent on specific apps that are outside of handful of most popular services. I have a gut feeling that (except for IOS), not that much.
