Anything that is currently occurring in the body of RIM, Heins must immediately make changes, among which are:

1. Repair software
Since 2002, RIM's business is always rubbing against the Silicon Valley. Bruce Dunlevie, a partner at Benchmark Capital, has said that RIM's hardware really stuck in the past because it does not have the support software that is qualified, let alone help from Silicon Valley.

Speculation about the unpreparedness of the platform should be pushed over with the launch of a powerful device, especially a better than previous devices. This was done so that RIM did not lag further and further from its competitors.
