"there is just no room for differentiation because they are all the same"
Uh...Android has too *MUCH* differentiation. In fact, most analysts agree that fragmentation is Android's biggest problem!
And if RIM *WAS* baking cookies, perhaps *THEN* they'ld have something people want to buy!

re: RIM CEO: We're Not Baking Cookies
I seriously have my doubts about the company's outlook for 2012. I've said this on BYTE in a couple different articles. The biggest concern I have is the ABSENCE of RIM in a mareket that was really defined by them and their Push mail service.

I have no doubt that 18-24 months will see the end of them if they don't do something drastic to turn it around. I have doubts about what's coming out of Toronto right now. Time will tell, but by that time...it may be too late to DO anything about it.

RIM needs transparency here. They need to plan what they ar going to do, publish the plan for all to see, and then stick to it, or publish the changes and then stick to that.

Just sayin'...

So RIM gets their ideas from a couple of teenage kids. What could possibly go wrong!

Sorry.. the thought of RIM baking cookies, all I could think of was the Friends episode where Monica has to make things out of "mock"olate (e.g. "mock"olate chip cookies)

re: RIM CEO: We're Not Baking Cookies
Baking cookies would actually produce a better outcome for RIM than what they are doing.

In 18 months, these guys will be done. Unless they do something drastically different ... 6 months ago, short-term puts were a good play. On this one, there will be a 18 month, slow decline, before the bottom will drop out. Sure, there will be spikes on mentions of takeovers, licensing of technology and buying patents. Then, rapid plunge and flatline.
