re: RIM Beats Earnings With Narrower Loss
A loss is a loss... speaks volumes that they're continuing to add cash while enduring these losses.

They're trying to resurrect features from webOS for their "new and world beating OS" and the product cycle with regards to the next generation Blackberry is getting to be a joke.

Most cell service providers offer their users the chance to change out their devices every two years - if you don't have a new device out within that two year window, you're running the risk of losing that user. Get it right, but it get it right... FASTER, or otherwise you're going to sink like a lead balloon in the consumer space.

Is this article saying RIM's motto should be "We're not as bad everybody thought, so we're great!!"

Never say die... but the odds are definitely against them. Their only real chance at redemption in the short run is in the corporate realm. But, unless the BYOD movement reverses, RIM is looking at a Mt. Everest hurdle to become successful in the mobile market again.

It's over - deal with it. Game-set-match. All's that left is turning the lights out.
