Rim backdating tula tungkol sa pagdating ng mga espanyol
Nick Waddell: At the end of your book “Blackberry: The Inside Story of Research in Motion”, you describe RIM as taking “twenty five years to become an overnight success.” I, for one, didn’t realize the amount of contract and consulting work that RIM took on, particularly before the arrival of Jim Balsillie in 1992.
In 1992, Lazaridis hired Jim Balsillie, and Lazaridis and Balsillie served as co-CEOs until January 22, 2012. In 1990, RIM introduced the Digi Sync Film Key Kode Reader.
For 20 years, Balsillie and Lazaridis became the duo that drove RIM from a local startup to a major global player on the success of the Black Berry wireless email device.
An accountant by training, Balsillie was the front man raising money to fund the research and development for the publicity-shy Lazaridis. Inevitably, he played the bad cop, a role for which his combative and tenacious personality was well-suited.
In 1994, RIM introduced the first Mobitex mobile point-of-sale terminal.
In the same year, RIM received the Emmy Award for Technical Innovation and the KPMG High Technology Award.
