Yes, RIM did invent the smartphone, but that does not ensure their viability. An example is the Palm Pilot. While they invented the PDA, where is Palm OS today? RIM, like Palm, did not adapt quickly enough to changing innovations, and as a result, unlike Dai, I believe that in the near future we'll all be saying... "RIP, RIM!"

It is too early to tell if RIM will make a comeback since the BB10 is not yet on the market. Dai is putting the cart before the horse yet again. Marvell has underperformed in the cell phone business in recent years.

Is Wei brown nosing to get Marvell into more Rimm products after the switch to Qualcom? She may go to war for Rimm but will Rimm go to war for Marvell?

I think RIM is just limited to enterprise use and people just use it for emails. However, with how bad is other smartphones performing? I don't see any comparison between different push mail services from other OS/smartphones. If there is no obvious advantage on RIM's push mails, why can it still survive in the future? I really doubt if we will see this brand in 2 years.

When RIM can offer me an Android-powered phone with 5.3" display for just $29.95, then I believe that they are viable. Until then, thank you AT&T for selling me a Samsung Galaxy Note for just $29.95 on Black Friday.

"Who invented the smartphone" Not Blackberry... what a myth. They're the obtuse guys who designed the smartphone WRONG and then got enough exclusive email contracts to insinuate themselves

no, the fact that it STILL "too early" means BB is already WAY too late to the game and therefore HAS LOST. The first round is over, they have forfeited and now watch from the stands while the big players play round 3

The fact that you invent something doesn't guarantee that you will be around when other pass you by...yes, RIM has strong security technology so it will not disappear...but it will not be a market leader again either

That, Scott, is an excellent question... and I suspect Marvell may not like the answer...
