Re: increase in subscribers*
Your concerns are not alone. One of the largest problems with corporations, is that they are so dependant on shareholders. Shareholders that know very little of the business. They are only interested in one thing; financial returns. They often put the squeeze on the corporations to make decisions not necessarily prudent to what the company feels is best.
This concern has been brought up at corporate level for some time now. The goal is to give much more control to CEOs and management for better decision making. While shareholders have always and currently have the choice to either trust the company or move on, under a new plan, shareholders would be forced to know more about the industry they are investing in before making demands.
Now, as far as RIM's woes. It is really imperative that a miracle happens here. BB10's software is going to have to be nothing short of a game changer in order to save the company. The hardware design will also have to be relevant to what society is acclimating to . I fear RIM is on life support. The old management waited far too long in recognizing the turn of trend. Blackberry has always been synonymous with prestige and a great software platform. However, they took it for granted. Society has moved on to newer advances. Human nature is known to buck trends for new ones. Does RIM have the capability to create a new buzz for a new trend? Microsoft is much larger than RIM and it is only their financial position that is allowing them to generate some attention.
