I very satisfied as it fulfills my basic needs : daily mails ,messenger , social networking with some business apps ..

I think major factor which is responsible for the fall of RIM is that they forgot what their strength is . Concept of BBM and BB enterprise server is very unique . But in-spite of developing and improving it RIM focused on developing smartphones to compete against i phone . i phone has its own unique features ( not to mention SIRI in I phone 4s ) but on the other hand RIM has ( or used to have ) its own market segment .

This lead to a catastrophe . . which I think RIM is still figuring out how to get out of it !!
