RIM Dying A Slow Death in Smartphone Market
This is a question that needs answering; do you think RIM is dying a slow death in the smartphone market? Research in Motion is not releasing any innovative and groundbreaking smartphones of late and this is killing them in the smartphone sector.
RIM does have some wonderful BlackBerry smartphones but nothing compared to the likes of Apple and Android, and this is becoming a big worry for its market. They are slowly losing its ground with the mobile phone market, they seem to be doing well in the tablet sector but when it comes to the smartphone sector that is another story.
Boy Genius Reports mentions via a quote via analyst Matthew Robison saying “We no longer anticipate Research in Motion recovering to participate in the mainstream of smartphone industry growth,” “Our long-term forecast anticipates a role supplying business-oriented devices, both mid-range and high-end, as well as cloud-based services via the BlackBerry Network,”
RIM do have a good business sector following, but is this enough? The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet device is doing very well, but we would like to hear from our readers if they have purchased this tablet PC. Selling tablets is great for the business but they really need to start thinking out of the box and release a few decent smartphones that gets consumers exited.
If RIM continues the way they are, and then you may as well say its smartphone business will die a slow painful death, please let us know what you think of the above.
