Remember the post BBM and the top of the App Store, in which I defended that despite all the stories of the surprising and overwhelming success of the app at the App Store, I expected it to fall below the Top 25 list within two weeks?
It took 10 days.
Tero Kuittinen, for BGR:
“A day after being released, BBM became the most popular messaging app in the world. By 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, it was ranked as the No. 1 free iPhone app in 66 countries”.
Sounds like a short run to me. I give it 2 weeks before it drops below the Top 25. Remember Nokia Here? No. Exactly.
I for one have no idea how I’m going to survive until then.

Like I told Jim Dalrymple when he posted this news on The Loop, I set up a Reminder to check 5 years from now if BlackBerry still exists.
Some things you just don’t do via the press. One of them is to contradict the CEO of the place you work for regarding the company’s product roadmap.
Mike Mefleh, Product Management Director for BlackBerry said in an interview the exact opposite of what CEO Thorsten Heins had said the day before regarding the company’s plans for releasing a new tablet.
The worst part is the real possibility that the CEO infact doesn’t know what’s going on inside his own company.
