RIM should have never entered the consumer market. The consumer versions of Blackberry are nothing but garbage with most consumers replacing them for an Android or some other device.
"Even a bankrupt chinese company is going after them for the iPad name."
The name iPad is not an original Apple created name. The name iPad originally belonged to a device made by Fujitsu. It was a multifunction device used in retail industry for inventory checking, price verification and other functions. It was created in 2002 (years before Apple even conceived a tablet). In 2003, Fujitsu applied for the iPad trademark but discovered that the name already belonged to Mag-Tek. Eventually, Fujitsu transferred the name iPad to Apple but Mag-Tek still is a registered holder of the name.
