Tech Rumor of the Day: RIM
Research In Motion's (RIMM) trusty old BlackBerry operating system is starting to look dumb in an advancing smartphone developers' race.
With the arrival of the Palm (PALM) Pre and its WebOS system, the continued success of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 3.0 update and the rise of Google's (GOOG) Android, the bar on phone software has been raised.
And RIM, for all its sleek hardware designs and killer email simplicity, is now looking to some like a laggard in mobile computing.
The chorus of criticism is getting louder as people point to the BlackBerry operating system -- the brains of the phone -- as RIM's biggest vulnerability.
