RIM Still Hasn’t Learned

Jonathan Geller, reporting for BGR:

BGR has learned exclusive details surrounding the first QNX smartphone RIM intends to release, which is codenamed the BlackBerry Colt, and it looks like there are already going to be some compromises the company will have to make in order to launch the smartphone on schedule.

Releasing the phone on time may help RIM meet its quarterly numbers, but it won’t help the company in the long-term. Weakening the Blackberry brand even further by releasing half-baked products is one of the worst things RIM could do. It’s just asking for trouble.
