Company Research In Motion (RIM), smartphone manufacturer blackberry, will be forced to make a decision that will keep the business afloat. One of the most likely options is the division of the company into two independent parts.

For this reason, the company's investors are actively urging its management to make a decision on significant changes in the business structure. Significant job cuts are also expected.
The sale of a division for the production of smartphones or part of the shares of the whole company is also called as possible ways of development. Ways of creating various partnership agreements, as well as licensing their own software, are also being considered.
