Hell, the devices themselves were stuck in the past until the launch of the 9900. (And even then... especially when you find this still relatively new phone being sold for $250). They're slowly playing catch up, but I believe it's going to get worse before it gets better for RIM. A new turning point comes with the launch of BB10. Basically if they don't screw it up (Playbook) and pair it properly with their devices, and perfect the android emulator, I can see RIM surviving for a while more. My gf's 9700 bold with OS 6 is absolutely -terrible-. I would have tossed the thing ages ago myself.

One curious thought I had is, I wonder how RIM would have done with WebOS.
