Phone Scoop had the opportunity to sit down and conduct a frank discussion about Research In Motion with the editorial teams of CrackBerry.com and BoyGeniusReport.com. We pulled no punches. The conversation, which runs about 43 minutes in length, covers a range of topics. We spoke about the new 9100 Pearl 3G and 9650 Bold handsets; BlackBerry 6; RIM's management style; its commitment to both the consumer and enterprise customer segments; and what we all think RIM needs to do to ward off Apple, Google, Microsoft and others.
Since Phone Scoop doesn't have its system set up to host a podcast or distribute one via iTunes, you can head over to listen to our thoughts at CrackBerry.com.
Participants included Kevin Michaluk, Adam Zeis, Bla1ze, and Isaac Kendall from CrackBerry; Boy Genius (Jonathan Gellar), Michael Bettiol, and Andrew Munchbach from BoyGeniusReport.com, and Eric Zeman from PhoneScoop.com.
