Google targets RIM
2010/06/06 Leave a comment
RIM has a lock on Enterprise email and is popular in the consumer market for many reasons.
Does Google has RIM in its sights? Probably as email is used by everybody every day.
Here is what Google’s Chris Messina appears to say; Mail is slow and awkward.
It is an interesting contradiction that email is still the number one killer application worldwide. SMS is just a variant and Twitter is another email variant that can be used for accelerated learning.
Will Google take out RIM?
Not sure but it seems that adding technology to a problem that has been solved many years ago is silly. Unless the prize for Google is BIG. Then again Google is about profit not Social Media or Social Justice as Messina tries to imply.
