Research In Motion (RIM) is in control of its own fate. If BlackBerry 10 flops, and by extension, the company's next-generation mobile plans, the Canadian company will only have itself to blame, and not any of the major wireless carriers.

Is there an unwritten rule that all leaked photos of unreleased products have to be shot with what looks like a $25 kiddie camera from Toys R Us?
