RIM called a ‘one-trick pony,’ company’s ‘nightmare’ seen as benefit to Apple
With Research in Motion’s second quarter of fiscal 2012 officially in the books, analysts on Wall Street have begun to pile on the beleaguered smartphone maker, declaring its outlook bleak as competitors like Apple are poised to gain on its losses.
A few years ago, back when it was a niche market, RIM was on top of the smartphones. Now that they are much more a mass marketplace, they are failing.
While the same thing could happen to Apple, they have shown the ability to adapt that is simply lacking in most other companies.
Adapt or Die is more than just a motto.
