Research In Motion has let slip details of its future plans for its forthcoming mobile phones along with thoughts regarding its current performance.
For example, it has discussed the possibility of introducing video conferencing as a standard option for its future mobile handsets via the inclusion of a forward facing camera, built into the chassis. Speaking to the Tiny Comb website, a RIM spokesman said that, "...video conferencing is something that could completely change the mobile landscape and it is something we have been thinking about and working on for quite some time. You will start seeing something early next year".
Commenting on the company's current performance, the same spokesman also admitted that the recently opened Blackberry App World has not been a great success and that the company was losing out to Apple, when the number of Blackberry applications produced is examined as well as the amount of apps being delivered via associated developers. The spokesman commented, "It's tough when you are going up against a company operating one platform and perfecting a single piece of hardware".
