New BlackBerry Bolds Add Touch, NFC, Run OS 7
Guess what: you are incapable of becoming a serious competitor to other manufacturers without scrapping BB OS. Adopt Android and reap the profits.
I remember when I suggested that to my BB rep a few months ago. His response was that BB6 was Android. For a millisecond, I thought he literally meant that the new OS was a hybrid BB/Android OS or something awesomely cool like that. Sadly, he didn't.
And then I was like "lolwut?". RIM makes excellent hardware, but they cannot compete in the OS department. Perhaps I am just a myopic consumer, but can't we all agree that Apple and Google pretty much have the mobile operating system market by the balls? Microsoft doesn't stand a chance and nor does RIM.
Hence, Microsoft (and its affiliates, like Nokia) and RIM need to GTFO with their sub-par operating systems and adopt Android or iOS.
