Handspring, RIM Getting Close

Both Handspring and RIM have admitted that they’re talking to each other about putting RIM software on Handspring devices. There’s a quote from one of RIM’s co-CEOs is quoted as saying that such a deal would fit with RIM’s strategy – but doesn’t elaborate on that point. We think that, clearly, this matches up with our theory that RIM is really focused on being in the software business instead of the hardware business. There were signs it was happening at the end of last year, and this just further confirms what appears to be happening at RIM.
