What Blackberry Feature Do You Miss?

RIM had another tough quarter and the news just seems to keep getting worse.  I can’t help but feel like there’s a solution here for RIM.  People still love their Blackberry’s.  I see them all the time as I travel, and the people carrying them are usually in first-class.  That’s a good sign.  How do you carry over the things people liked about their Blackberry?

I loved my Blackberry, especially the keyboard.  The lack of a keyboard is really the only thing I don’t like about my Android.  What do you miss the most, since judging by the numbers, none of us own a Blackberry anymore?

Mine:

1.  Keyboard
2.  Great Email Intergration
3.  The Feel in my Hands

Here’s more financials for RIM.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Research in Motion was once the king of the smartphone market. Now, it’s looking like the next Palm — a pioneer that fell hopelessly behind in a market it invented.

RIM (RIMM)’s shares fell 20% in morning trading Friday, a day after the company announced grim second-quarter results that fell far short of Wall Street’s sales and earnings forecasts.

RIM shipped 10.6 million BlackBerry smartphones to retailers last quarter, below the 11 million to 12.5 million it had expected to ship. Its entry in the tablet wars, the BlackBerry PlayBook, shipped just 200,000 units — a significant drop-off from the 500,000 RIM shipped in the prior quarter. The PlayBook went on sale in April.

RIM’s iconic but aging BlackBerry is struggling to keep up with the industry’s innovators: Apple’s (AAPL, Fortune 500) iPhone and Google’s (GOOG, Fortune 500) Android platform.
