Barclays' downgrade of Research In Motion (RIMM -1.9%) stems from skepticism about BlackBerry 10's prospects, and a belief a breakup of RIM is unlikely, given how its products are intertwined.The downgrade comes as a slide allegedly containing RIM's 2013 roadmap is leaked. The touch-only BlackBerry London is expected in Q1, as is a keyboard model codenamed Nevada. With a flurry of Windows Phone 8 launches due in Q4, it won't be easy for BB10 to carve a niche.
