RIM’s BlackBerry Dev Con is going on right now, but the big news so far is the unveiling of BlackBerry’s ballyhooed new QNX platform for smartphones and tablets, called BBX.
BlackBerry sales have been in the toilet, so RIM has been scrambling to get their much-anticipated first QNX-based phones to market. Very smart. But they may be pushing them out without BES/BIS email/calendar calendar support. That would be unfathomably stupid.
Why is it that RIM, when faced with legitimate criticisms about the state of its company, can only spit out garbled bullshit in response? The latest example lies within their retort to an open letter from a supposed senior-level RIM employee.
