The iPhone is more of a competitor to the Blackberry than I had originally thought.
Seems RIM has started a Blackberry developer fund just like Apple & KPCB did on March 6, 2008. They’ve also put 50 million dollars more into the pot than KPCB’s 100 million dollar iFund.
It also seems RIM is launching a full touchscreen Blackberry phone, sans tactile keyboard.
…and it ALSO seems RIM is organizing the first ever Blackberry Developers Conference.
Let’s get something straight RIM – just because you throw money and conferences at a mobile platform, doesn’t mean it’s going to get better.
The same way watering a rock garden isn’t going to grow you any fresh fruits and vegetables
…or blackberries as the case may be.
