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.

All that happened with RIM is that they were a company with business oriented smartphones that just HAPPENED to be there a few years back when everyone on earth decided that they had to have these devices.
So overnight, thanks to Apple and later Google a new "consumer" market was created for these devices which RIM was slow to respond to.

Blackberries still have a lot of strengths, but most of those shine more in a business environment that the general public could probably care less about.

And outside the US in many countries, Blackberries are still hot items.
