RIM CEO: ‘I don’t expect things to get much worse’

Thorsten Heins predicts success for the BlackBerry 10.

  • “I don’t expect things to get much worse”

    How could they?

      Oh, I can think of lots of ways.

      Hardware bugs in new phones. Software bugs in new phones. Delayed shipments of new phones. New BES that no customers will buy because already have Android/iOS infrastructure.

      Bankruptcy. Stock down another 50%. Top employees quitting. Credit rating goes down. OEMs won’t accept orders.

      That’s just off the top of my head.

  • And that’s exactly why things have been going off the fucking cliff at RIM

  • We all know where this is headed but what is the CEO supposed to say? He is acting the CEO part.

  • Tvaddic

    That’s what Blockbuster said…

  • GTWilson

    Well, if things can get worse, leave it to RIM to find out.

    Yeah and no one expects the Spanish Inquisition Mr. Heins.

  • And Thorsten sent his pals to leave nice comments at the NYT post. How thoughtful.

    • Mother Hydra

      I noticed, don’t worry I’ve got some time to kill with webex, I’ll go troll.

  • I bet he believes he’s a great singer, too… after all, his mommy told him so.

  • I love it that he’s so un-prepped that he’ll say things that sound like comedy movie dialog.

  • BB10 does look very good in the product demos I’ve seen. It has the potential to blow iOS out of the water and onto a tiny island of complete irrelevance.
