Thorsten Heins gave an interview on CBC Metro Morning today with the headliner quote being that “there’s nothing wrong with the company as it exists right now.” He qualified that by telling them “I’m not talking about the company as I, kind of, took it over six months ago. I’m talking about the company (in the) state it’s in right now.” He said RIM has a serious challenge ahead of them to regain market share in the United States but denies that RIM is in a “Death Spiral.” As Heins has stressed before, BlackBerry 10 is more than a product launch and “the company is not ignoring the world out there, nor is it in a death spiral.”
Heins then goes on to describe that RIM is very challenged at the moment specifically in the US market during their BlackBerry 10 transition. Its good to see that he is still strongly positive that RIM will emerge successfully from the BlackBerry 10 transition.
Check out the more details from the interview on CBC.ca and let us know what you think! They also have a video interview with Andrew Macleod, RIM’s managing director for Canada, explaining “why the company is excited for the future and ready to fight.”
Thanks Brian for the tip.
