The Blackberry smartphones, powered by an all-new
operating system, are pivotal to the future of RIM, which
has ceded market share to Apple's iPhone and devices
powered by Google's Android operating system.
RIM is now betting that its re-engineered new line of
touch-screen and keyboard devices will help it win back
consumers and market share.
