homarjr: It is so farking easy to fix RIM that I don't understand why people don't get it....

First things first - realize what your biggest market advantage is, and know that it's not BBM, or BES or the fact that it's a "business" phone. That's stupid. Your biggest market advantage is you are basically the only phone out there with a phyiscal keyboard, and you need to use that to retain your customers. There are still TONS of people out there who continue to buy Blackberries because they don't like the touchscreen keyboard, but they're slowly making their way over because BBs suck balls otherwise.

All RIM needs to do is create a smartphone that is as nice and awesome as the Samsung Galaxy series or the iPhone series, and put a physical keyboard attachment at the bottom. Sell them together and BOOM - you've retained basically your entire customer base, and you may even attract some new ones. It wouldn't be a "tall" phone by any means (think iPhone 4 height, but with the attachment, it would still likely be smaller than the Galaxy S3).

Oh, and pay someone a lot of money to do some real marketing for you, because otherwise you're just going to have another product that no one knows anything about.

Soooooo, do you read the news? Cause that's pretty much exactly what they're doing. Like almost word for word.
