RIM Co-CEO Says BlackBerry Storm is a Netbook


CNET Asia did an extensive interview with the management of RIM, maker of BlackBerry devices. BlackBerry smartphones grew 81.7 percent in the third quarter of 2008.

Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO founded RIM while he was a student at University of Waterloo.

During the interview, when asked if he considered netbooks to be competitors, Lazaridis replied:

"No, I think I can put Netbooks in here [referring to the BlackBerry Storm]. These are Netbooks. They are just smaller."

Lazaridis is also a great PR spokesman for his company, he said,

"The BlackBerry solution epitomizes the highest evolution and
balance possible with today's technology for both businesses and
consumers. At RIM we continue to invest in R&D to make sure that we
are able to maintain our lead in providing the best wireless handheld
messaging and multimedia solutions globally"
