BlackBerry 10 doesn’t have email, BBM

BGR:

In what is something of a serious allegation, our source told us that Mike Lazaridis was lying when he said the company’s new lineup was delayed for that reason. ”RIM is simply pushing this out as long as they can for one reason, they don’t have a working product yet,” we were told.

Of course RIM has denied what BGR’s source said. But then again, I don’t believe much of what RIM says these days.

They also said the PlayBook would deliver an amazing tablet experience. Amazingly bad.

    If the problem was simply just waiting for a future chipset, well! Why don’t they show off their obviously finished implementations of BBM and email on a current chipset? Problem solved! Everybody will see that they weren’t lying! They should hire me as their CEO. I make the tough decisions like that.

    I don’t trust BGR either though they do have good sources at RIM.

    I feel bad for them. Much of this is due to incompetency when they didn’t realize how much of a paradigm shift the iPhone was in 2007. Software takes time but they should’ve seen the impact of the iPhone coming and not waited until last year to acquire QNX to adjust.

    This goes far beyond incompetence, in my opinion. Incompetence generally means you have a clue, you’re just not smart enough to figure things out. These idiots simply don’t have a clue.
