RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook hasn't exactly sold as well as the company would have liked. Now, it appears the company may be taking notes from HP: RIM has discounted the PlayBook by as much as $400. Until February 4, RIM is offering the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB PlayBooks for $299. Given the fact that all three models are... Read more...
2012 is bound to bring all sorts of new excitement in the mobile space, but it's worth taking a look at how the cards are stacked right now in order to see how things will or won't change in the 12 months ahead. ComScore's last numbers of 2011 found some rather unsurprising results, with Android on the upswing, RIM on... Read more...
According to new numbers from Nielsen’s third quarter survey, Android’s market share in the U.S. inched up to 43% from 39% back in June. During that same time frame, Apple treaded water, maintaining 28% of the market. However, RIM saw its share continue to drop, from 20% in June down to 18%. Windows... Read more...
Research In Motion is writing the book on how not to compete with Apple's iPad. It's a three-step process that any tablet maker can follow, and it goes like this. Step 1: Launch an inferior tablet with missing features, but make sure they're big ones, like native email, contacts, and calendar support. Step 2: Promise... Read more...
Research in Motion hasn't had the best of months, particularly with that nasty service outage marring their otherwise outstanding record of uptime, but they're trying hard to put the past behind them at BlackBerry DevCon Americas 2011. The outfit's own dev event played host to a few announcements this morning, one of... Read more...
Rumors circulate through the Internet faster than germs on an airplane, and a big one for today was that RIM may have stopped manufacturing the BlackBerry PlayBook.

Straight and to the point, if you're paying full price for Research In Motion's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, you're paying too much. Don't worry, we're not about to wax critical about the tablet's lack of native email, calendar, and contacts support, all of which reportedly will be addressed in an update next month. The reason you shouldn't... Read more...
RIM has been struggling to catch a break for months but the negative reports show no sign of slowing. According to UK rag The Guardian, the company has slashed production of its seven-inch tablet due to an enormous backlog of unshipped hardware. This follows the company's admission last week that it shipped just 200,000 PlayBooks in Q2, down... Read more...
Research In Motion is learning a hard lesson in tablet sales. If you want to compete with Apple's iPad, you can't launch a half-baked slate and hope buyers will scoop up your product based on promise and potential. Yet that's exactly what RIM did when it launched its BlackBerry PlayBook, a nifty 7-inch tablet with a... Read more...
RIM has experienced a few setbacks with its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Although the tablet has received some positive press including being approved for Federal use, the tablet still isn't selling as well as retailers or RIM hoped. As we recently saw with the HP TouchPad, price can make a big difference in how well a tablet sells. Best Buy... Read more...
Looks like RIM still has a friend in Sprint. Despite taking a beating in the media recently, Research in Motion's new Curve smartphone looks downright excellent for those who still find value in BBM, physical QWERTY keyboards and RIM's legendary e-mail systems. Now, the Curve 9350 will be coming to Sprint starting... Read more...
A few weeks ago, RIM introduced a smattering of new BlackBerry handsets, but one handset that was missing from the bunch was a newly designed Curve. Looks like that one was... just a bit behind the curve. (Sorry, had to do that.) Today, however, the Canadian smartphone maker is introducing the slickest, slimmest Curve... Read more...
RIM's once stellar outlook from a few years back has dimmed somewhat recently, but that's not stopping the company from keeping the hardware flowing. The Bold 9930 is their latest on Verizon Wireless, and it's available starting today for $249.99 on a 2-year contract. It's one of RIM's slimmer QWERTY-equipped devices... Read more...
Many businesses have discovered the benefits of equipping its staff with smartphones (powerful mobile computing and communication, etc.), and probably just about as many have experienced the downsides, too (lost/broken/stolen phones, management headaches, etc.). Research In Motion released a cloud-based management... Read more...
Unfortunate news for RIM: while sales of the PlayBook tablet haven't been nearly as brisk as some other competitors out there, it looks like Sprint won't be investing time and effort into pushing the 4G WiMAX version on their store shelves. That means that only the Wi-Fi model will remain, with no 4G edition at all to... Read more...
RIM has quite the unveiling this week, and a few of the company's latest are headed to Sprint. RIM and Sprint obviously have a long relationship of partnering with one another, and that's continuing with the release of America's first BlackBerry 7 OS phones. The Bold 9930 and the the Torch 9850 are both destined for Sprint's shelves. The 9930... Read more...
According to the latest numbers released by comScore, both Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS mobile operating systems gained marketshare in Q2 at the expense of rivals RIM, Microsoft, and Symbian.

When you think about apps on phones, you probably think first about Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market. But there's a few other major players. HP has the webOS marketplace, and RIM has the BlackBerry App World. And while RIM's taking a beating lately, that doesn't mean that they're lacking for users. The company just announced that...

RIM announced during their latest quarterly earnings call that they had sold 500,000 units of the PlayBook tablet; not a tiny number by any measure. It's not nearly as many as Apple sold of their iPad 2, but frankly, there are two different markets being served here. Even RIM admits that they're mostly targeting folks... Read more...
Not long ago, we learned of an issue that affects all systems running Flash. Although most users' minds automatically think of the vulnerabilities they could be exposed to on their PC, because the BlackBerry PlayBook supports flash, this tablet is also susceptible. For this reason, RIM is releasing a new version of the BlackBerry Tablet OS... Read more...
If you can't beat 'em, you might as well join up!
