    How's that any decent analyst still compare RIM to palm ? It remains a mystery.

  • Research In Motion - Possible $43 Stock Price In 12 Months? [View article]
    What is the proper risk/reward ratio when you can estimate a 400%+ reward ? What are the real chances RIM goes banckrupcy (or alike, meaning the share at $0)?

  • Research In Motion - Possible $43 Stock Price In 12 Months? [View article]
    wow, Marcap, I salute your listening to previous remarks some of us have been writing here (no bashing intended). Glad to read balanced arguments here; you're right, all is about BB10 (and BES10) success.
    Those who have the chance to sport a Dev Alpha and/or to develop for BB10 are 90% enthusiast about it. I can understand videos, mockups and texts are not enough to convince everyone.

    Nevertheless the carriers massively supporting BB10 launch is a strong signal that BB10 is at least capable to reach current state of the art. They won't support it if it wasn't ... And Misek finally got that.

    @Marcap: it's somehow funny how your angle vary depending on the objective you serve. You were previously a defender of "RIM should have adopted Android", which is exactly the "catch-up" strategy.

    Building another platform was the other one. "no follow: innovate".
    This had been initiated years before T. Heins took the wheel. While the former two CEO's failed to execute on time, they did set the strategic fundamentals the "new RIM" is applying now.

    You have no idea what BB10 is, as you never had it operate in your hands. I did, some others did too. Ask them how they fell; you'll get some idea of what the comparizon with current OSes is.

    Yes it is somehow. Mixed between "too big too fast" and "we are kings". Result = bad move and corporation deprecation (+ individuals hurt by job loss - certainly not least in my perception).

    Yet while very poorly executed, they had the vision of what is happening today (QNX, platform, vertical). They do deserve (severe) blaming but one has to remember that if RIM is back and successful, they also took their part of it.

    @J.M appl HTML5 support is pretty poor as of date (compared to BB10 browser let's say at least 25% less compliant). Yet, flash support is still present (and updated) on BB10.

    February device release is more likely to append. Production seems started already and RIM executives forecast a "within 30 days" delay (http://onforb.es/TKWxAM).
    Implication ? Only one (pretty) bad quarter to go, instead of 2.
