Last year was not a great year for RIM. Having launched its PlayBook tablet to lukewarm reviews and not having native email and calendar apps baked in, RIM is rumored to be dropping a new 10-inch PlayBook and another revamped 7-inch PlayBook.
RIM hasn't given up on its 7-inch PlayBook tablet, but it seems Best Buy is done with the tablet that's failed to catch on. Reports are coming in that Best Buys are canceling all PlayBook orders.
What is this? The Verge says it's RIM's next BlackBerry smartphone codenamed "London" with the BlackBerry's next-gen BBX software and sleek Porsche Design looks. Please, let this be what RIM is cooking up.

RIM just announced BlackBerry 7, the new mobile OS that's coming to the BlackBerry Bold Touch.

BlackBerry Messenger, or BBM, is one of the features exclusive to BlackBerry smartphones that keeps users hooked. But could RIM be bringing the service to Android and iOS devices later this year?
Not to rip on RIM, but maybe it's time the corporate suits in charge think completely outside of the box for its next BlackBerry. One such idea is the BlackBerry Empathy, a crystalline shaped smartphone that focuses on human emotions and social networks and less on email.
