Background: The Rise and Fall of BlackBerry

This is an excellent article on what happened with BlackBerry, and how poor decisions by RIM and Verizon really enabled the rise of the iPhone and Android, at the expense of BlackBerry devices. I really can’t add anything to it, so this is probably the last blog post to address BlackBerry or RIM directly.

(For years I wondered at the idea of “co CEOs,” which seemed like asking for trouble. Everybody’s business is nobody’s business, a pastor of mine used to say.)

The book Losing the Signal was also covered in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.
