    I agree. At this point most people are just going to forget about it and not even bother downloading it if it ever comes out. That company is doomed

    I'll agree that the delay to release the BBM app is not helping the company....

    They have shot themselves in the foot so many times it's not even funny anymore.
    But I disagree that people are not even going to bother downloading it when it comes out, the d/l numbers for the fake app on the playtstore are amazing lol. (it's also amazing that it's so easy to put a fake app on playstore)

    Possibly. But this is taking a long time to release. I thought they just needed to increase servers. Shouldn't take this long!

    It's really a crying shame. BlackBerry was a leader in smart phones at one point. It's sad to see them collapse. If only they looked at the market and worked towards bringing something out that would sit in a particular sector.

    Totally agree. I have owned multiple Blackberries in my day. Sad to see them fall apart so quickly.

    As a die-hard Blackberry "fanboy" like I was, I'm in total agreement with you, however, they were too late to the changing landscape and underestimated their grip on the corporate sector as well as the appeal of the iPhone, in particular.

    I completely agree!! They were too "corporate" focused and lost sight of the everyday user! They didn't envision corporate employees being able to use their personal iPhones for work ( like I do). Bad vision all around. They will be done in less than two years. I have sympathy for the employees who will be affected. I hate to see people lose their jobs because of bad management.

    I understood why they focused on what was essentially their bread and butter. I'd like to think that most businesses wouldn't want to risk losing its core base. I know I wouldn't. However, when the iPhone was introduced and made such a huge splash in this industry, someone at RIM should have started thinking outside the box and paying close attention to Apple and the changing smartphone landscape especially after witnessing the runaway success that Apple attained with the iPod. Of course, hindsight is always 20/20, right...

    4 years ago I thought they should create a new consumer focused division.
    It still might have been too late, they may have executed badly due to the biases of their corporate culture.
    'What might have been' is just a whimsical distraction from 'What is'.

    What I don't understand is, I read that the Android version might be with beta testers now and when that passes they will roll out the iPhone version as originally planned. If there is nothing wrong with iOS version, why wait for Android to be ready. Why not just roll out iOS app?? Why should Android app dictate everything

    When I read that a while back, I thought the exact same thing - why wait to release the iOS version if nothing is wrong with it?

    Fairfax ask them to put the launch on hold because they want to cancel the hole thing if they buy BB.
    This is just a wild guess but, I mean, what could take so long...it was ready 2 weeks ago, and now, nothing.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they scratched the whole idea at this point. No updates from BB in 2 weeks.

    Hopefully Blackberry releases BBM soon. To this. Day there is no instant messaging solution like it. Whats app comes close but it still needs to work on its reliability issues.
