Re: BB OS 7 on Torch?

With Apple releasing their p2p IM platform to challenge BBM, together with RIM's OS release/update practices, you really have to wonder how much longer they will be a player in the market ace they created?...

Re: BB OS 7 on Torch?

IMO before the end of next year RIM will become an attractive buyout candidate. Probably AT&T.

My next phone will probably an Android.

Funny how, despite all the negative comments you have about them, RIM is still in business and thriving.  Do you think you'll be better off with an Android?  I think with the new OS 7 releases and QNX on the horizon, this would be a poor time to jump ship.  Smiley Happy

Re: BB OS 7 on Torch?

Quite honestly, if it comes down to that I think RIM might just get left behind, there are so many user issues that they are simply not supplying solutions to, how on earth are they going to compete in an Android or QNX market, and if they were to actually get into those markets, I would think very carefully before buying one of their devices.

Re: BB OS 7 on Torch?

RIM was there when cell phones were just coming to be, and they're still here (and getting better) today.  There's no reason to believe they won't be here for a long time to come.

 

Anyway, this thread has moved away from being a support thread to becoming an opinion thread.  As they say on the TV show Shark Tank.................for that reason, I'm out.  Smiley Happy

If anything RIM has shown that the OS7 device you buy today WON'T be able to run QNX tomorrow.  Why stick with BB?

Re: BB OS 7 on Torch?

Saudi, UAE, considering a ban are India, Algeria, Lebanon. Under scrutiny in the UK media for the use of IM by the rioters. Look up details on Google

Re: BB OS 7 on Torch?

Sorry, BlackBerrys are not banned in Saudi Arabia or the UAE, nor in India or Lebanon. I don't know about Algeria.

And "considering a ban" is not "banned". IN Saudi and UAE, that's two year old news, which they never went forward with. India has been settled as well.

 

And you have nothing to worry about in the UK. BlackBerrys won't be banned, lol.
