RIM: No problems with Blackberry PlayBook battery

12/30, 5:55am

Any issues only with pre-beta units

RIM has issued a statement in an attempt to stymie reports that its forthcoming flagship PlayBook tablet is facing possible delays due to issues with its battery. Kaufman Bros analyst Shaw Wu made the claims and said that the issues revolved around RIMís use of the QNX OS, which was not originally optimized for tablet devices. RIMís statement refutes these claims and insists that any issues that might have been detected are only in non-optimized, pre-beta devices.

Verizon moving to iPhone due to cooling Android, BlackBerry?

12/06, 9:15am

Verizon iPhone said helped by slow Android, BB6

Verizon's CDMA iPhone may be coming about because of a loss of favor for BlackBerry and likely Android, Kaufman Bros analyst Shaw Wu said in an investment note today. Sources told Wu that Verizon doesn't think the upcoming launch of BlackBerry 6 devices on its network will have a "material impact" on its sales, ruling it out as a savior. The researcher also believed that even Android was leading to a change of heart as its growth has lagged AT&T despite multiple high-profile devices from HTC and Motorola, giving Apple a larger bargaining chip.

Verizon seen turning to Palm; Droid "disappointing?"

11/17, 2:30pm

Analysts see Palm at Verizon next year

Palm may prove to be Verizon's best hope if the Droid line doesn't bear fruit, Kaufman Bros analyst Shaw Wu said in a note today. He points to contacts within the cell industry and supply chain that suggest Verizon will carry one or more of Palm's webOS phones, such as the Pre or Pixi, sometime in 2010. Sales of both the Motorola Droid and HTC's Droid Eris have purportedly been "somewhat disappointing" and may lead to Verizon using Palm to bolster its smartphone catalog.
