RIM and Cingular: Not Perfect Together

January 20, 2007 in Wireless Industry News

Research in Motion (RIM) has one big problem, according to an article on thestreet. With 2 customers accounting for 36% of total revenue (the 2 customers most likely being Tmobile/Deutche Telekom and Cingular), RIM could be in a pinch if it loses one of them.

So why do we now see Cingular pushing BlackJacks (made by Samsung) instead of Blackberry Pearls?

And to throw some fire into the mix, since Cingular will be the only carrier selling the soon-to-be-coveted iPhone come June, it doesn’t seem like RIM’s prospects are looking any better in the future.

And I quote: ‘”We are already beginning to see encroachment on RIM’s strong position from BlackJack, and it is interesting that Cingular has not put out any joint ads with RIM in recent weeks,” says Kenneth Leon, senior equity analyst at Standard & Poor’s.’
