RIM is under tremendous pressure. It's being outsold by Android on phones and it was caught flatfooted on tablets. Its co-CEO halted a BBC TV interview because he did not like the questions.
It's sad to see how a CEO can wilt under the strain, as happened in this 90-second BBC interview of RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis.
As RIM's hold on corporate America's mobile devices begins to loosen because the company did not change its operating fast enough to keep up with competitors and RIM's soon to be released tablet is likely to be met at best with mixed reviews, Lazaridis appears to be letting things get to him.
