"We're very aware of our market, very aware of our position," Richard Piasentin, RIM US managing director, said. "We have aggressive goals, but they're reasonable goals. And before you can be No. 1 you've got to be No. 2, before you can be No. 2, you've got to be No. 3. And we're building our plans for the long, slow climb back to the top."
