It kinda looks like the once great phone maker who had the device that had to be seen on every A listed celebrities arm (including paris hilton) arm... ahh now i know why they are broke :P

Is in more trouble than the Titanic and sinking nearly as fast, poor RIM there hares over the last couple of years have gone from $140 to under the price of a happy meal and a large coke.

Will RIM survive ? does anybody care ?

No and no ;)

I cared more about Palm. Apple should by RIM and get into the corporate space properly.

Who cares to be honest. They missed the boat and so did Microsoft. That's why Apple are in the lead, and I hope it stays that way.

RIM should have been where the iPhone is today, but they lacked the vision.

True, RIM was the darling of all businesses a few years back.

They did loose the plot and did not have the vision that Apple had in many ways. They kept on slipping back as the years went on.

Apple took the lead and maintained it and went beyond it. No wonder they sell so well.
