Apple‘s devastating legal victory over Samsung and, by association, the Android operating system may have had the unintended effect of breathing life into RIM and its Blackberry; a product mostly given up for dead, except by those corporate users whose companies insist they keep using it for business.
RIM is introducing a new Blackberry phone and operating system shortly and recently excitedly noted that Verizon thought it was a pretty good product. Now that Apple has dealt a severe body blow to its major competition, will customers who prefer to not own an iPhone take a hard look and reconsider the new Blackberry?
Maybe. Time will tell, but of all the things that could have happened to help RIM and its Blackberry, this could not have been much better … or more timely.
