There's definitely an image issue but, I believe a lot of it had to do with poor hardware performance. Overall, I think RIM's phones have been on the right track bit, poor OS optimization and the lack of memory, one of or both of these issues causing phones to freeze up. It was that reason I got rid on my original Bold. Using the same memory for phone operations and storing apps, wasn't a very good idea. Especially, when you limit the device to 128-512mb. Lets not talk about the extremely long boot time, when you had to pull the battery to free up memory. Nearly two whole minutes! Now, enough bashing of RIM. I've seen some of the new devices slated to come out sometime this year and they seem really seems to be some promise there, that just might help secure a better mindset with the stock holders.

I understand RIM has always been more of a business phone but, they have kind of fallen behind in terms of what a lot of people wanted, I think. With business professionals being younger and more of the older ones retiring, the expectations of what a phone should do and what people want them to do has changed.
