RIM CEO: Blackberry Is Not Going Away Soon

New instated RIM CEO Thorsten Heins
Newly instated RIM CEO Thorsten Heins has confirmed that besides the current problems and competition that Blackberry is facing from it's competitors, RIM is not going to sell Blackberry.

In an interview to Crackberry RIM CEO said, 
What I was trying to address was that there was some suggestion that RIM should be split up or should even be sold. My true belief is that RIM has the strength and the assets that we can really succeed in this market.
There is a LOT of change. There is a lot of structure change, there has been already a lot of change in terms of our software, our software platform, bringing QNX in. There is no standstill at any moment here at RIM.
What I wanted to make clear to the market is that we believe in our own strength, we are BlackBerry, we are an integrated solution, hardware, software, services, and network.

According to one set of figures, from research company Gartner, RIM's is falling. The company's share of the smartphone market has dropped from 23% to 19% in nine months - or nearly 200,000 fewer mobiles.This is in fact a real tough time for Blackberry, that's the reason why there were rumours that Blackberry was going to sold soon. 
This is now clarified that Blackberry will not be sold to Google to release Blackberry-flavoured Android devices or any other company and take the easy route, rather Blackberry and RIM will try the harder route by innovating it's own line of products.
According to a report by BBC, three-quarters of Blackberry users want to switch phones. This can result in great damage to Blackberry. This is a time to wait and see what important steps does the new RIM CEO take to make sure that Blackberry doesn't get rumours of being sold again.
Let's see if Blackberry can make it. Comments welcome.
