PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Struggling RIM will layoff up to 2,000 employees in an attempt to right itself while it pins its hopes on the Blackberry 10. Wireless industry analyst Peter Misek of Jefferies & Company opines: "We maintain that the only path for RIM is to partner with someone, to be acquired, or to turn themselves into a software company, and I think that path with become very clear to the management team by the end of the year."

Maybe Facebook will buy RIM. They seem to want into the handset business for some reason, and they'll spend a billion dollars on just about anything. Plus they need to convince corporate IT managers that they shouldn't block Facebook because it's like the new email or something.
