Research in Motion, the Canadian corporation that makes the BlackBerry line of smartphones, had a rough 2011. While Apple's iOS and Google's Android platform managed to sell better each quarter, BlackBerry seemed to take a backseat in the mobile race. Multiple service outages, a lackluster launch of its PlayBook tablet, and the continued woes of the paltry Blackberry App World have stockholders a little more than worried.
