Blackberry is facing new troubles in the launching of the advanced smart phones, informed Research in Motion, the official maker of Blackberry. This distressing news comes as an additional setback with the earlier misfortune of the unsold Blackberry tablets that costed $365 million. RIM has informed that the launch date has been postponed to the latter half of next year.
CEO Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazridis had created news when they decreased their pay to $1 each, but analysts say that seeing the present condition of Blackberry, they are still overpaid. Many of them feel that getting them fired will be the right move. They should have been removed months back if not years- blogs one analyst. The reason for this entire problem is the transition of the models to a new operating system. The Canadian company wanted to compete with the Android and iPhone with its new operational system but still now has not developed the OS to the desired ends. The company has to remodel its software at the grass root level. Till date the only gadget, which the new operating system, is working is the Play Book.
The news was delivered rather casually by Lazridis at a press conference yesterday. The new operating system will surely power the next generation phones but the choices of chips have not yet been decided. RIM co-CEO as informed since the chips are not yet sufficient, so the manufacturing of the OS is running on delayed timings. He said that the delay was unavoidable. This surely has disappointed investors who were assured businesses of smart phones in between eleven and twelve million. The assurance was originally given of sales costing fourteen million, and this depreciation again is going to disappoint the investors. This news will surely facilitate the sale of other companies.
