While it certainly has failed to adapt as quickly as it should have, it's not dying anytime soon.
It's the fact that RIM isn't meeting the profit goals they are putting out, so people are crying wolf and expecting to see RIM go the way of Nortel (which actually wasn't turning profits).

Also, netbooks are dead due to the fact that you can get a tablet that is just as powerful, better looking and has about the same or better battery life.
