Some sources are reporting that RIM is going to release a Blackberry Messaging client into the Apple App store.
As Blackberry messaging is one of the main reasons that consumers continue to buy Blackberry communications devices (well that’s their excuse and they are sticking to it!), this seems like a very strange thing to do. Perhaps they are beginning to accept, what everybody else has suspected all along, that the Playbook is going to be a failure – so they had better start re-assessing their position in the market – perhaps as a Software supplier (We need more of those right?).
I for one will be sorry to see one of Canada’s top companies go down the plughole, but that’s what you get for sitting on your Laurels I guess! (Microsoft are you Listening?)
