The Blackberry Zombiepocalypse Spreads

So RIM have had a ‘core switch failure’.

Blackberry devices all over the planet started imitating the sales numbers of the Deadbook and finally Jim Balsille and Mike Lazaridis stump up and say “whoops…our bad”.

Yeah…I’m sure sending out a video apology on the launch day for the iPhone 4S is going to help. Following it up with a few free apps isn’t really going help all that much guys.

Faced with plummeting market share, wrong headed thinking and launching an unfinished product to market with the vague promise of “we’ll fix it with software updates soon…promise…really…”, isn’t going to help.

Not only has RIM lost the ‘cool’ factor, they’re losing everyone’s confidence.

RIM should put Jim and Mike out to pasture so they can worry about ice hockey teams and telling each other that they’re the best.

Stick a fork in RIM, they’re done.
