A RIM split?

According to reliable sources in the UK press RIM may be splitting out it's hardware/software divisions

 

This is sorta good news for us developers but maybe bad for RIM as a hardware manufacturer

 

The BB10 looks dead nice - one of my colleages just got three apps approved for BB10

 

I'm reminded about HP's venture into the PB market and how that worked out and the resultant death of WebOS

 

Do I think things will change this year? (hope not)

 

Do I think we have a future developeing for BB? (definitely)

 

Do I think we get BB10 out before Christmas? (without a doubt)

 

Thoughts?

Re: A RIM split?

In times when Microsoft goes from software only to hardware and software leaving hardware part of business looks stupid. The biggest profit is in combined solutions - software + hardware, this market brings profit. Look what happened with HTC (no software part), Motorola (no software part), HP(failed transition) and soon, Nokia (abadoning software part - Symbian and other projects).

 

I don't think that RIM will follow this path of failure.

Re: A RIM split?

Yep - one of my mates got 3 out of 4 thru too

 

BB are about to introduce some quality assurance using an external QA team

 

Basically - he're a crApp and here's something serious

 

The serious gets through QA and gets the $10k guarantee (the other makes a buck or two)
