Balsillie’s not scared of Motorola

Comments

There’s a difference between cockiness and confidence. Since our noses are browner than ever, we’ll say that RIM Co-Ceo Jim Balsillie, the human quote machine, is soaking in pure cockin confidence. An article from Reuters shows that RIM has yet to feel any impact from the release of Motorola’s Q, and Jim even discounts the competitors by saying that the BlackBerry is in a “league of it’s own”. Speaking of the competition, Balsillie quips

“Those guys are kind of knocking each other. We’re a platform that goes beyond that,” Balsillie said. “We’re much more of a service solution.”

You tell ‘em who’s boss, Jimmy!

    It’s true. Just because we sell devices doesn’t mean we’re competing against Motorola Q, that’s a very superficial way of looking at it. BlackBerry is much more than just devices, it includes server software, and technologies like MDS, and is also an enterprise level solution, unlike Q, which is just another cell phone.

    Totally agree. The BlackBerry solution goes beyond devices. Especially from a business perspective it has a lot of advantages compared to the motorola-like solutions.
