If this spec sheet is real, RIM has made some real improvements. Of course, that’s no guarantee that will save them. As a tech company, they still have a long way to go. Ideally, they would improve their OS system first, because without a clean operating system that runs well, the devices are essentially worthless. Most people value simplicity and quality over all the extra features, and that’s something they should consider.
RIM has been losing ground for the last few years, and Blackberry 10 will probably be their last chance to get it right. Even if they do succeed and build a better product, it may still be too late. I really hope that RIM can save themselves, but things are not looking good for them.
It’s predicted that Blackberry 10 will come out sometime in January 2013, but no official date has been set yet. The predicted date could also be pushed back a little further, as Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) has been doing over the last few months.
The good news here is that if this spec sheet is true, it shows that Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) is willing to step up their game, which could boost up their portfolio. If they can enhance their image a bit, they might be able to obtain a buyer if and when they sell their company.
