RIM in Turmoil?

BGR just teased over Twitter that an high-level exec wrote an open letter for BGR explaining why the company is failing.

RIM is apparently trying very hard to catch up with Nokia in looking disorganized and confused while their marketshare is sliding. Based on the Nielsen survey released today RIM is down quite a bit in recent smartphone purchases. Now we are awaiting an open letter from a high-level executive at RIM that explains why RIM is failing. I guess that executive will not be much longer with RIM after that open letter goes up on BGR.

RIM got some good resonance of the QNX based PlayBook. The smart phones are though not expected to run QNX before somewhen in 2012. It is not all bad in RIM country. It will be interesting to read what the insider has to say.

We will update you as soon as BGR releases the open letter.

BGR just published the Open Letter to BlackBerry bosses by senior RIM exec (identity kept confidential). The letter raises issues across the whole organization. There are a lot of issues that seem to need fixing before RIM can turn things around.
