RIM Selling Its Hardware Division

by Mohd in News, Technology

According to some reports published by The Sunday Times claims that RIM ( Blackberry manufacturer) is considering splitting its software (messaging network) division from its hardware division and selling the latter one. I really got shocked about the strategy RIM’s considering to get back into the competition. The idea might seem great to some and could really help RIM but what really concerns me is the hardware, RIM was the first mobile manufacturer to build their own software and hardware and that what really made RIM lead the market for a while. Most successful mobile or smart phones where built by the same company just try to remember most of the successful mobile you have held in you hands through the years or even this year (the iPhone).


Till now RIM didnt confirm or deny the leaked reports i guess we would have to wait to know what is really happening inside RIM.

        I think they should add more stuff just to the boring BBM feauture their apps also suck. I use my BB just for the keyboard as I’m not a fan of touch.

        But never did I expect them to suffer like this O.o

          RIM’s best feature is the BBM other than that their apps really needs a total redesign. They should support more developers and encourage them to make apps. I still have hope that RIM will survive

    Sooner or later.. They’ll be out of business! It is very difficult to compete with two giants Apple & Google.. Bye bye BB!
