The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
Research In Motion's CEO says the company is not in a death spiral. He's wrong. First, just look at the numbers. The mobile device market is exploding right now, yet RIM's unit sales are falling (as are Nokia's). The company just delayed its next-generation product and has ratcheted up the cost-cutting. That's a bad sign. Look at Hewlett-Packard's recent woes. The company may have cash to give it some time, but it'll likely start burning through that cash very soon. Lots of people say Apple's iPhone killed the BlackBerry, but John and David disagree. RIM's inability to move past its first innovation -- namely, secure email -- ultimately killed the company.
Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution," which details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market.
