Yours Truly, Back in 2008, on Why RIM Is Screwed

Synopsis: mobile phones are evolving into pocket-sized computers; Apple has 20 years of experience making portable computers, and RIM does not.

I’d say the latest iPhone and BlackBerry models bear this prediction out. RIM’s new flagship 9800 (a.k.a. Torch) is, relative to current Android and iPhone models, slow and chunky. It may well be a great phone and texting device, but it’s not much of a mobile computer.
