Research in Motion LTD. is forming a relationship with 150 carriers in hopes of avoiding the fate that befell Palm Inc. This after RIM's BlackBerry 10 was compared to Palm's doomed WebOS. While Palm originally received great reviews it fizzled soon afterwards. However, unlike Palm's single carrier debut, Research in Motion has wider carrier distribution.

RIM has rebuilt its latest operating system in hopes of competing with Apple's iPhone. They've received positive reviews for this. In fact, it caused their stock to go up 80% since late September. Since then analysts have gone on to suggest that there's too much optimism surrounding the pre-release of the BlackBerry 10.
