As I wrote in an earlier post, RIM has an uphill battle when it comes to maintaining their place in the market. There is an interesting poll launched by ZDNet. From the early results, it appears that RIM is holding on to its lead versus their biggest competitors – Android, Apple and Windows (yes they are still around!).
These results as of 3:00pm EST on August 20 2010. Interesting data, but again something that Blackberry and RIM need to lean on – that from the business side of the world they can still command a leadership role. It is up to them to market and speak to this rather than worrying about Android and Apple – and how cool they both are!
