  • RIM begins new round of layoffs

    RIM begins new round of layoffs


    We’d heard back in April that RIM, the manufacturer of the BlackBerry smartphones including the Bold Touch 9900, Bold 9790 and Curve 9360 as well as the Playbook tablet - had planned a new round of employee layoffs, this in addition to the 2,000 employees who have already lost their jobs this year.


    Ironically, the new layoffs have begun almost one year to the day that The Waterloo Record reported last year’s RIM layoffs that were necessary to cut costs. In this new round, RIM plans to lay off at least 10% of its global workforce.


    RIM is pinning most of its hopes for a future on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone, but until that phone is on the market, RIM’s sales are going to continue to languish. In a recent interview with The Waterloo Record, a RIM spokesperson revealed this: “RIM has committed to achieving significant efficiencies and operating cost reductions over the course of this fiscal year. Our financial target is to drive at least $1 billion in savings by the end of fiscal 2013. Headcount reductions are part of this initiative.”


    Rim’s spokesperson said the current round of job reductions could see as many as 6,000 cuts as RIM tries to achieve $1 billion in savings by the end of fiscal 2013.

    Speculations that Apple would lose its steam with its loss of Steve Jobs at the helm are coming up to be nothing but hot air and competitor's wishes.  In a survey conducted by Alpha Wise on behalf of Morgan Stanley, Apple is poised to sell as many as 190 million iPhones in 2012. No doubt, the continued strength of the brand will also lead to higher iPad tablet sales.  As always there is a plethora of accessories including bags, sleeves & cases, docking stations, micro SD memory cards and speakers as well other accessions which will continuously fly off the shelves too.



    The 2012 Gossip Mill  Spotlighting  Apple, RIM, and Samsung Samsung, you continue to capture us with your Galaxy cell phones and Galaxy tablets product line… next on the line in the rumor mill is a branded variant of the 5.3 inch device said to be coming to the AT&T lineup early 2012.  Samsung’s “Note” made it through the rigors of the Commission and was expected to make a US debut, but again, it’s thought to be a disappointing update: a color variant of the international mode currently available. Until 2012 consumers won’t know if these U.S. versions will be unlocked devices or again tied to AT&T.  Experience the widest online selection of Bluetooth Headsets and BlueTooth Car Kits.  Latest technology from top brand manufacturers.  Hands free functionality is designed for the interactive 'on the go' lifestyle  and allows safe driving


    Translation can be a tricky business – remember Babblefish? These same limitations and inaccuracies are found in some smartphone applications. Luckily, there are a fair number of educational app options now available that may come in especially handy for the international traveler or language learning aficionado. Buyers beware – read user reviews and be prepared to shell out the money for a quality app. Also, high quality earpieces & headsets are a great investment to get the best experience out of the app investment.


    There are definitely two sides to the coin of Research in Motion’s announcement at this week’s quarterly earnings press conference. The manufacturer informed the public that its next generation of BlackBerry smartphones will not make an appearance until “the latter part of calendar 2012.” Originally slated to hit the market in the first part of 2012, the set back could indicate that they are reviewing the recently jailbroken OS (currently on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and expected to be used on the next gen smartphones). This could be a smart move if done properly. Giving themselves time to work out bugs, regain its reputation for security, and smooth over the debacles of 2011 could staunch the business loss.

  • If you happen to be a Blackberry Smartphone’s fan and have remained loyal to the brand in spite of the presence of other better and technologically more advanced smart phones then it’s time for you to smile because you have the British royal family as company. The royal family is said to be addicted to their Blackberry’s and even the Queen is an ardent fan of the device. The frenzy surrounding the brand is not a rare phenomenon and in recent months it has encircled almost entirely on the soon to-be launched Blackberry Curve 9300. Various rumors about the features and date of launch have been leaked in the Internet adding to its appeal. But it seems like the wait for the highly anticipated Blackberry Curve is about to be over soon because it has earned its broadcast license from the FCC which includes support for both its CDMA and AWS devices.



    The rumors and mostly false information about the Blackberry Curve 9300 has shrouded it in mystery leaving an enthusiast confused about its various features. For example certain very basic details about the device which is code-named “Kepler” like whether it has 256 MB or 512 MB of application memory or whether it will be launched with OS 5 or OS 6 is still unclear. Other details like whether the camera will be increased to a 3.2-mega pixel also cannot be said without a doubt. Although it is expected of T-Mobile to pick up the 9300 device, as to which carrier will take up the CDMA 9300 cannot also be confirmed.



    From the initial pictures that were leaked in the Internet, the device seemed to look like its predecessors, the 8500 series. In fact the device is similar in design to the Unlocked Blackberry Curve 8520 with a 2.4-inch screen and a QWERTY keyboard courtesy classic Blackberry. However the fans will be eagerly waiting to see if the 9300 is after all as the critics say, only an iterative advancement. But renowned for its strong email capabilities and taking into consideration all the added features that this device is said to incorporate the Blackberry Curve 9300 doesn’t seem like something that is going to let you down.
