RIM is trying to do anything it can to stay relevant.
They're removing the RIM sign off the local office here, replacing it with a Blackberry sign. Guess their staff got sick of the same "oh, you work at RIM? Cool! what's a rimjob like? I've heard they're overrated" joke.
I've seen BBM running on a physical android phone. Guess we'll see if the company's dumb enough to cancel it before it gets released.
