Joshua Topolsky, The Verge:
Heins said that sales of the devices in the US took a major hit as carriers transitioned to 4G phones. According to the executive, carrier aversion to marketing 3G devices is the main culprit for the company’s dipping numbers.
Clearly, the iPhone’s success is due to the inclusion of 4G. Wait, the iPhone doesn’t have 4G? Wonder why anyone bought it?
If Heins sincerely believes that RIMs decline is primarily due to carriers preferring 4G phones, their future is even more bleak than we thought.
