RIM Wants a Bronze for BlackBerry
Research In Motion Ltd. (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; Toronto: RIM) is not looking to take down Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) or Android in the smartphone market, but it does want that third ecosystem position that Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) is also eyeing.Speaking at the BlackBerry maker's Developers' Conference Tuesday in San Jose, Calif., RIM CEO Thorsten Heins told reporters that RIM has a clear shot at being the No. 3 operating system in the world and that RIM employees aren't sleeping much as they prep for the launch of BlackBerry 10 early next year. (See RIM Delays BlackBerry 10 Phones 'Til 2013.)"We're lining up carriers to get ready to deliver the first Blackberry 10 devices to you," Heins said, although he declined to give an actual launch date.Even so, Heins claimed the launch is on track, with carrier lab tests beginning next month. He has spent the last couple of months showing off prototypes of the device to the wireless operators, starting in RIM's hometown in Canada. (See RIM Hopes BB10 Roadshow Will Wow Carriers .)The reception has been positive, Heins said. But, RIM spent most of the day pitching developers on the platform and trying to win back those he admitted have already written RIM off. (See OS Watch: RIM Loses Developer Support and RIM CEO 'Not Satisfied' but Confident in BB10.)In one of the more bizarre ways RIM pledged its commitment to developers, it showed off the following video, which says it all ... or, at least, says something.
John Chambers IDs Potential Successors
Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) Chairman and CEO John Chambers has told Bloomberg in an interview that he may retire in two to four years and named some of the individuals who could take over Cisco's helm.There are at least 10 people on the succession list, which the company's board of directors reviews quarterly. According to Chambers, that list includes: Gary Moore, chief operating officer; Robert Lloyd, executive VP of worldwide operations; Chuck Robbins, senior VP of the Americas; and Edzard Overbeek, senior VP of global services.Chambers reportedly said that Cisco's next CEO will probably come from within the company and that he would stay on as chairman if the board wants him to.Bloomberg's article also reported that Chambers said some small acquisitions were planned to help the company grow in the areas of "video, collaboration, virtual data centers, mobility and security."Chambers has been CEO of Cisco since January 1995.Why this matters The subject of Chambers' successor has been long discussed, but this appears to be the first time that the Cisco man has named some of the candidates who could replace him and specified the timeframe for when that change could happen.
The revelation follows some senior executive departures, the most recent of which was Chief Strategy Officer Ned Hooper. (See Cisco's Chief Strategy Officer Quits and Hooper's Ascent Continues at Cisco.)
Euronews: Ericsson Adds to SPIT Armory
Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC), TeliaSonera AB (Nasdaq: TLSN) and Bouygues Telecom put in an appearance for today's EMEA headlines roundup.Ericsson has bolstered its Service Provider Information Technology (SPIT) portfolio through the acquisition of Canada's ConceptWave Software Inc. for an undisclosed sum. The Swedish vendor will get its hands on order management and product catalog offerings, as well as around 170 extra employees. Earlier this year Ericsson completed its acquisition of Telcordia, another SPIT specialist. (See Ericsson Acquires ConceptWave, Ericsson Sets Q2 Benchmark and Say Goodbye to Telcordia.)Swedish operator TeliaSonera is on the verge of putting its Spanish mobile subsidiary Yoigo up for sale, reports Reuters. France Télécom - Orange (NYSE: FTE) and Vodafone Group plc (NYSE: VOD) are expected to throw their respective hats into the bidding ring. TeliaSonera, which has been under pressure over the way it does business in Uzbekistan, wants to concentrate on its domestic and Eurasian operations. (See Euronews: TeliaSonera Denies Bribery.)
French mobile operator Bouygues Telecom has turned to Sierra Wireless Inc. (Nasdaq: SWIR; Toronto: SW) for the development of a 3G USB key that powers the Peugeot Connect Apps system. The key, when plugged into the vehicle, provides Peugeot drivers with real-time information and navigation assistance. (See Unknown Document 225266.)U.K. regulator Ofcom has published its latest complaints data, and there are some familiar names at the top of the bar charts of shame. TalkTalk still rules the roost in terms of complaints about landlines and fixed broadband, 3 still tops the mobile badboy rankings, while BT Group plc (NYSE: BT; London: BTA)'s BT Vision brand has put clear water between itself and the likes of BSkyB Ltd. (NYSE, London: BSY) and Virgin Media Inc. (Nasdaq: VMED) in the pay-TV category. On a more positive general note, the number of complaints is reducing -- though maybe some disgruntled customers have just given up. Or are still on hold. (See Ofcom Publishes Complaints Data, Ofcom Counts the Complaints (Again) and Ofcom Fines TalkTalk ?3M.)Calm down, you've all been eating too many exquisite chocolates! More than 10,000 Belgians have signed up for the new iPhone 5, reports Reuters, even though the price of the fetishized handset has yet to be revealed there.In what it claims is a planet-saving exercise, U.K. mobile operator Telefónica UK Ltd. (O2) has teamed up with High Tech Computer Corp. (HTC) (Taiwan: 2498) on a pilot program to sell new handsets without chargers. O2 argues that the industry is standardizing on USB chargers anyway, and that our drawers are already stuffed full of charger-cable spaghetti. (See O2 Teams With HTC on Charger-Free Trial.)
