This was a pretty sad moment for RIM. The expectation bar was set low, and they still managed to come in lower.

While their cash position and patent portfolio are strong, it actually is what makes the situation worse for their outlook. At this stage, with the current stock price, they are worth less than the sum of their parts. I think the chance of someone buying them and keeping the Blackberry brand as a going concern is getting smaller. I imagine their customer confidence is dwindling, and that IT departments across the world are probably starting transition plans away from BB, as they can't rely on it staying as is for too long.
