    Research In Motion Offers Free Premium Apps to Customers Following Service Interruptions

    Waterloo, ON - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) announced today that a selection of premium apps worth a total value of more than US $100 will be offered free of charge to subscribers as an expression of appreciation for their patience during the recent service disruptions.

      What a lame return.

      It took them so long to communicate the problem, I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of BIS users to switch platforms.

      I understand businesses are stuck due to BES, but they should have better compensation since I doubt many users who are getting the "free" apps, pay the bills.

      I would have thought quite a few businesses, especially in the UK, do not deal direct with RIM. Instead they'd go through a carrier for BES licences and handsets. With that in mind, I do wonder how they could do anymore for business, other than offer up the 1 month support.

      Personally, I like BlackBerry for business (this is my own personal opinion and does not necessarily reflect the views of my employer). It feels solid, they are good handsets and the thing has been accredited by CESG.

      That said, I use a different make and model of device for personal use.
