RIM Following the Path of Palm to Oblivion?

News reports indicate RIM may be moving towards a Palm-esk split of the company
– hardware and services.

My guess would be they split three ways:

  • hardware
  • spin QNX back out (since it is somewhat arms-length at the moment still)
  • mobile cloud services

My predictions:

  • Facebook picks up the hardware business and puts their own version of Android on top of it tailored to Facebook (ala Amazon Fire)
  • Samsung picks up QNX
  • RIM continues as a mobile cloud services company
