RIM CEO thinks they have a shot at No. 3 spot

After a less than impressing showing of Blackberry 10, RIM’s CEO is trying to play off of some “hardly there” momentum. He goes so far as to say: “We have a clear shot at being the No. 3 platform in the market. Carriers want other platforms. And we’re not just another open platform running on another system. We’re BlackBerry.”

Really? Unfortunately for RIM, the number 3 spot belongs to either Microsoft or Apple. This is not a race for 3rd, it’s a race for 2nd. At this point, the only thing RIM has a shot at doing is strongly securing the “hi, my name is Palm” spot.
