On CAPS, 24% of the 5,824 members who have rated RIM believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Earlier this week, one of those Fools, prbyers, succinctly summed up the RIM bear case for our community:

No product development. They won't be able to keep up with the other players. Blackberry can't hold the attention of the hardcore business users either -- those users want a single device. And they want that single device to be able to play games, listen to music, participate in the same ecosystem as their friends, etc. You know -- like their Android and iPhones (that they already own). Proof: [Bring your own device] policies are getting very popular.

And of course, there is the toe-stubbing and slow product releasing ways of [RIM]. In this market where there are phones and tablets that become passe in a matter of months, they will never be able to keep up.
