Why Rim Should Not Sell The Blackberry Brand--and Why It Should

"How about offering Android OS, Windows OS, and QNX on BlackBerry devices. Sounds drastic, but it may just help RIM regain their market share. BlackBerryâs OS is primitive by current standards, think Palm OS. However, the brand name and hardware still resonates with consumers (typing without keys, hell no!). Given the option to buy an Android HTC, Samsung, or BlackBerry, I would buy an Android BlackBerry. There is strong brand affinity with BlackBerry, and Berrys are perceived as quality devices. I think most folks would buy an Android BlackBerry. This would be similar to how consumers were receptive to Kindle Fire vs. (insert manufacturer) tablets. Hello, market share."

Like was mention on the article, the Enterprise is where they are strong. There is a reason why, China, Middle East don't like US people using Blackberry phone. They cannot crack their security features the way Apple and Android phones can be done. I done care if Apple and Android have a million apps. I am not going to look at all of apps; and if a buy one I might use it once and never again. I just want a good phone, with e-mail, maybe a map and GPS. The rest is just garbage. Maybe I don't want to group with the dump, idiot, moron people that can spent a day or two in line for a phone just to say they have the latest phone.
I just wonder how can they pay for the phone or cell plan if they don't have a job? Even if they have a job, how can they wait one or two days of their life on a line for a phone?

Well thats what I think. Seriously undervalued stock in a company that has its roots in the corporate culture. No one does security like RIM. Android and Apple don't have that kind of security. So they have made some blunders. But look the same asshats writing off RIM were busy doing the same to Apple for decades.
RIM continues to make money and 5.2 billion in sales per quarter is nothing to sneeze at.
DO you see even ONE of these writers running a company with that kind of sales?
How about 100000 per quarter? NO I thought not.
My money is on RIM.
Not these so called pundits.
