Because Microsoft has a vested interest in RIM success. NOT
I didn't know RIM was in such bad shape. I guess they were able to say that is wasn't the existing BING default search deal causing users to flee by the truck load so bedding with Microsoft for search and maps is better for RIM customers. Which is an interesting though considering Google got the search and map market share with user choice and not purchasing users like Microsoft does.
It was nice knowing you RIM.
grenade because they're pulling the self destruct pin much like many others who felt it was better to team with Microsoft and that monopoly money than make the right choice for the customers sake. There'll probably be a little financial blip as the MS$ comes in and then the mass exodus and payouts for RIM executives and management.
