We had a chance to speak with Richard Piasentin (RIM’s Managing Director for the US) about where the company is headed in the near and long term. Though he was mum on any meaty details about the outlook for BlackBerry 10 or company strategy, there was no shortage of bullishness in the message he delivered. “I want to convey that fighting spirit that’s in BlackBerry… RIM knows what it’s doing,” he said via phone. “This isn’t just a new product; it’s an entirely new way of interacting with the world around us.”
I’ll believe it when I see it.
