RIM’s mismanagement

Matt Alexander:

I have no doubt that QNX is promising, but why on Earth would you push it when it’s not even compatible with your flagship email software? Why would you build Android emulation when you’re looking to develop your own App Store?The whole project screams of mismanagement, and it’s time to stop. Stop trying to peddle subpar products to the unsuspecting Christmas shopper, stop advertising it, and stop defending it.

I only disagree with one thing Matt said in this article — I don’t believe RIM will mount an offensive in the coming months. It seems to me the problems with RIM come from the top and until the co-CEOs are replaced, the company doesn’t stand a chance of making a comeback.
