Jim BalsillieIn a Wall Street Journal Interview, Research in Motion co-CEO, Jim Balsillie, when referring to the rocky start that the BlackBerry Storm has endured due to software glitches actually said this is part of the “new reality” of making a complex cellphones in large quantities.

I actually said outloud, “He said what!”, when I read this.  Maybe it is just me but it almost seems like Balsillie is telling us that new BlackBerry devices riddled with software bugs almost to the point of failure are to be expected from now on.

Did RIM not pay attention at all to what has happened to Palm over the years?  If this is RIM’s attitude when it comes to making cool devices that just work, they may get a a front row seat as it happens to them.
