Jackson summed up RIM saying, “It’s a bad software company,” and they’re “not going to change their stripes over night.” He added, it has “Bad cofounders, and they’re going to drive this company straight into the ground.”
The only hope for RIM is that it releases incredible phones running vastly improved software in 2012.
Even if the phones are great, it’s an uphill fight. You’re looking at a company that will have gone from 50% of the market to 10%, and it will then have to try and bounce back. That’s never happened, and Jackson is betting it doesn’t happen with RIM.
