At WWDC, Apple announced iMessage. This is a direct attack on BBM. BBM has been a cornerstone RIM product. BBM has been about what makes a Blackberry different. Ouch! At every turn Blackberry seems to lose relevancy and it’s ecosystem gets passed. The Playbook is getting a lot of ad time right now but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just about to hit stores and it will be a much better tablet for those who eschew the Apple ecosystem. I hate to keep repeating myself but I see little from RIM to give me hope. All I see is a painful decay. In and of itself iMessage is just another small evolutionary step towards convergence and transparency similar to the nice moves Microsoft made in Mango. For RIM it is another big blow.
