RIM needs to ditch making phones, or at least the phone OS. Overhaul Android or create the definitive blackberry app for iphone & android and you're still good to go.

Though that being said, as far as exchange is concerned, blackberry server is redundant and expensive these days. You have to pay 30 bucks a month per user extra to connect to an exchange server that *you* run. On top of the expensive licenses and server software.

At this point, activesync does everything that blackberry does. Maybe not as fast, but the difference between a 30 second delay and a 2 minute delay is negligible.

Nothing would be worse for consumers than for another OS to vanish. We don't need more Android handsets and lock-in.
