Heins takes over BlackBerry® pioneers Lazaridis and Balsillie

With the new leadership at helm, Research In Motion (RIM) is all set to re-invent waning popularity by shifting its focus back on users

In the latest development at Research in Motion (RIM), Thorsten Heins has been declared as the new president and chief executive officer of the renowned telecommunications company. Heins, who worked as a chief operating officer, has also been appointed as a member of the Board of Directors.

The announcement came soon after the two former co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis (the founder of RIM) and Jim Balsillie stepped aside to make way for the new leadership. Mike Lazaridis would now act as the vice-chairperson of the Board and Chairperson of the Innovation Committee. According to him, the goal behind the decision is to re-gain the competency in the market share and user base. Although BlackBerry has seen a huge fan following in the past, but the ever-rising popularity of smartphones and tablets such as Apple iPhone and iPad as well as the Android devices from Google has affected the company too badly.

“There comes a time in the growth of every successful company when the founders recognize the need to pass the baton to new leadership. Jim and I went to the Board and told them that we thought that time was now. With BlackBerry 7 now out, PlayBook 2.0 shipping in February and BlackBerry 10 expected to ship later this year, the company is entering a new phase, and we felt it was time for a new leader to take it through that phase and beyond. Jim, the Board and I all agreed that leader should be Thorsten Heins,” Lazaridis said.

BlackBerry® Messenger Due for Android™ and iOS®

After rumors speculating on the portability of applications on Research In Motion’s (RIM) Android system QNX, some websites released reports that a version of BlackBerry Messenger is being developed for iOS and Android. In recent years, the BlackBerry Messenger has evolved somewhat beyond the standard features of an e-mail client. It is thus possible to create groups of conversation, to send various types of media or to show the music being played.

Rumors are circulated on the Internet that BlackBerry Messenger may soon be available on the Android platform and Apple iOS. RIM might try to adapt its instant messaging BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) on Android and iOS, according to the website Boy Genius. This service is one of the strengths of the Canadian firm because it allows all owners of BlackBerry of real-time chatting, share photos, files, voice notes, and more. The idea is to offer versions of the BBM Android users and iOS to provide cross-platform messaging while allowing advanced features to its BlackBerry customers.

Whether these applications will provided for free has not been decided. The application compatible with Android and iOS will be, however, lighter because it will offer limited functionality by simply exchanging the text. Openness to other platforms could also be in the opposite direction, clues suggest that RIM could make some Android applications compatible with its system.
