    Analysis: Could RIM's Survival Mean Abandoning the BlackBerry?
    By REUTERS

    http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2011/...gewanted=print

    TORONTO (Reuters) - It might seem like corporate heresy but an increasing number of technology investors and experts are asking whether Research in Motion needs to ditch its BlackBerry handset business to survive.

    The idea that is gaining favor, albeit only among a minority of shareholders, would see the Canadian company fully open its secure and highly respected network to rival smartphone providers and concentrate on that business while getting out of the hardware game altogether through a sale.

    BBX would help if it was ever released. Also porting android to some devices (similar to Motorola XPRT) would probably increase their market share. Especially if they could port it and still have their awesome email capabilities.

    As soon as they decide what to call it, and check that *that* name isn't already trademarked, they wiil! Seriously though, they really don't seem to be getting any good publicity these days, are they? Sadly, I think RIM are in the same state that Nokia are in, just a couple of years behind.
