News and other sources confirm that a big push took place today. That is, a BB10 Executive Roadshow with telecom providers.
This is great news!
For all those naysayers claiming that BB10 “will be late” again, this is proof-positive pudding that the company is on track to release the new platform and devices. Hopefully, Q1 2013 is the definite delivery bucket for RIM. With Microsoft and Windows 8 eating up a ton of the noise since July 2012, the third spot is RIM’s to lose. Whether real or perceived, another delay could be seriously end the game.
As an avid supporter of the company, I am confident that a turn-around of sorts will change the playing field in 2013. Or we can revisit this in the new year and I could be eating my lunch on video!
Hey, nothing wrong with being an underdog cheerleader. Honestly, it’s far easier to rebound and rebuild “in most cases” rather than feel the constant pressure of delivering an impeccable product, a continuing wave of successful launches, with a complete focus on endless innovation. Very hard to do.
Let the cards fall where the may.
