Waiting for Research in Motion to produce the next-gen BlackBerry 10 device is starting to feel like the wait for that next Van Halen or Guns N Roses album---it just ain't happening.
Word from BGR is that RIM is focusing on one phone to bring to market, the BlackBerry London. The BlackBerry Colt---initially designed to be the first BlackBerry 10 phone---has already been scratched.
If RIM weren't such a mess I'd applaud the move to focus on one device. The problem is that RIM is having software trouble, design issues and marketing woes. And oh yeah the two CEOs at the RIM need to go.
In this case, focus just means that RIM is preparing for a Waterloo last stand that will make or break the company in 2012.
Welcome to the Jungle Waterloo.
