Update, RIM has taken few hours out to deny the news. BlackBerry will continue in production and reaching new markets, whether in autumn show new models.
Without a doubt, every day has become a tough test for RIM Since the announcement of its poor financial results in the middle of the last month of June. Despite the announcement of the last million subscribers in the European markets and Middle East, the Waterloo strategy continues to be an entire Mystery surrounded by an infinity of conflicting data on the future of the multinational. Something to which is attached the possibility of that Canadian company arrived to stop the production of the BlackBerry PlayBook Wi-Fi version.
Model which, curiously, is the only one that currently RIM is marketing. A rumor that binds to the possibility of an indefinite delay in the development of the BlackBerry Playbook 2 in favour of a “ powerhouse ” BlackBerry with QNX operating system or the so-called new seven terminals that Jim Balsillie has promised and which arrives at full meeting of shareholders.
It was precisely in the afternoon when Mike Abramsky, CEO of RBC Capital Markets, made special emphasis on a report that indicates the possibility of this slowdown in the production of the tablet, relating this fact with the failure of the device and the great stock generated sales forecast in the different distribution channels.
On the other hand, it is possible that Canadians would shelve said model for focus on any of its evolutions. Unfortunately for these developments, it seems that RIM will continue betting on a tablet “-dependent ” a telephone terminal BlackBerry Connect. Something that clearly and, if true, will ensure a new barrage of negative criticism towards the device and brand.
