RIM or RIP
A few months ago, we discussed how RIM and its Blackbery was following the steps of Palm. When more users are switching to Android and Apple iPhone, companies are now allowing the once secured Blackberry to be replaced by iPhones and other devices. Technology and consumer trends along with the lack of adaptability was pushing RIM towards its potential demise.
This week, the disruption of Blackberry network services from North America to Europe, Middle East and India could be what leads the company to a radical change. New products might not be able to save its reputation and keep customers around.
Most users do not understand “”The messaging and browsing delays … were caused by a core switch failure within RIM’s infrastructure,” “As a result, a large backlog of data was generated and we are now working to clear that backlog and restore normal service.”
Browsing delays will definitively occur in the stores later this month…
