Is The RIM Renaissance Here With BlackBerry 10?

Forbes has put up a new opinion of the BlackBerry 10 platform. I’ll keep it brief and get to the goods. “It’s extraordinarily difficult to revive a technology franchise: once the glossy brand has acquired the patina of being a bit behind the curve it almost never seems to lose it. But there’s a chance, […]

The Engadget Interview: RIM CEO Thorsten Heins on BlackBerry 10, QWERTY keyboards and changing cultures

This is another fantastic interview from Thorsten Heins speaking in depth about his plans for BlackBerry 10 and the future of Research in Motion. It’s worth watching to the end. My favorite quote from the video “You will be seeing exciting products from RIM on January 30th” Perhaps he just means the L-Series and N-series phones. Or maybe […]

QNX sought out RIM, not the other way around

Not enough credit is given to Mike and Jim the (old) CEOs of RIM. True they lead the company and it’s shareholders to lose upward of  70 billion dollars as shares drowned 82%. And that’s only between 2008-2011. But what they were doing was a balancing game. One the consumer doesn’t  truly appreciate. Those who believe in in the […]

Speculation: RIM implemented the Android Runtime to ‘Force’ Developers onto BlackBerry 10

While the title sounds a bit brash hear me out. RIM could have struck up a  deal with Android/Google to give us support to Google Play Store on our PlayBooks. Instead they built in a half-ass Dalvik runtime that essentially emulates the Android environment. Why? We know RIM is tracking the source of Android and is planning […]

Africa is where RIM steals the show, but the rest of the world needs to be looked at as well

RIM has truly taken the developing world by storm. And Africa, in particular South Africa is a budding example of this. While RIM is still #3 everywhere in the world, they maintains a stronghold in Africa due to many factors highlighted in a recent article by The Globe and Mail. Of those include BBM as […]

RIMM still a viable player in the telecom space, and its stock is dirt cheap

I bought 300$ worth of shares in RIMM back when stock was below 6 dollars. Today it’s floating with just under 9 dollars. And it’s been up in the low 9s recently. Which for me means even without BlackBerry 10 I’ve nearly doubled my investment. And when BB10 does release I can bet my investment […]

RIM makes changes to App Icon Grid for BB10

A few days ago RIM made changes to the Visual Style associated with BB10 icons. The icons have been scaled down from their previous 150×150 size to 114×14. This comes as a welcome change to some developers who’ve been ardent that the icons needed to be smaller and less rectangular. In true RIM fashion they’ve […]

The Future of RIM, may have very little to do with cellphones

Thorsten Heins is a great CEO. He’s already made dramatic changes in regards to streamlining RIM from management down to manufacturing. But the real testament to Heins brilliance in this “transitionary” period, is the choice to forge ahead with BB10 instead of offering up BlackBerry handsets to Windows Phone 8 or whatever the latest build of […]

RIM strategically tracking the source of Android for BB10

A great deal of discussion has been made as to whether the Android Runtime implementation on Playbook was really worth RIMS time or the consumers for that matter. While being able to run Android apps on Playbook sounds great, it leaves a lot to be desired as it stands right now. There is no native access to […]
