ABSTRACT
The article highlights the views of Charlie Wolf, an equities analyst at Needham, on the possible market performance of Research In Motion's BlackBerry Bold smartphone. Wolf compared the BlackBerry Bold with Apple's iPhone. He said that Bold is powered by a primitive operating system (OS), while Apple's iPhone uses OS 10. He also pointed that after July 11, 2008, Research In Motion would no longer have a price advantage against the $199 to $299 price range of Apple's iPhone.
