As many know by now, the mighty duo of CEO’s at RIM, Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis have stepped down only to promote one from within. Taking over as single and only CEO of Research in Motion is Thorsten Heins, a four year COO who worked closely under Jim and Mike. In recent news, he’s been given the cold stare thanks to making such statements as “I don’t think there is some drastic change needed,” and “We are evolving. We’re evolving our strategy, we’re evolving our tactics, our processes.” As one standing from the outside looking in, I’d argue in favor of a drastic change, personally. But hey, RIM’s the competition so I’m not pressing the issue. However, the question does arise, should Google’s Android be afraid? As much as I would love to shout from the roof top “hell no!“, I”ll try to keep it professional here.
