Samsung Bashes RIM's BlackBerry in New Commercial

We've gotten pretty used to Samsung making fun of the iPhone (and iPhone owners) in its commercials. The company has a whole series of adverts based on the fact that Apple fans tend to queue up for new products and that these new products are sometimes missing key features. However, it seems Samsung has grown tired of ragging on Apple, as it's moved on to another competitor in the smartphone space.

This time, Samsung is taking aim at Blackberry-maker RIM. The new commercial shows a company adopting something of a BYOD policy and telling companies that they can now use 'any phone they want' for work. The rest of the commercial makes a point of showing how the Blackberry users refuse to part with their old smartphones for something a little more up-to-date.

    I think Samsung make pretty good products, however when they start bashing other companies(RIM) it really makes me think they are scared of RIM because they know it could end up being a great product. RIM has never bashed other companies, all they are doing is trying to spread the word about there new OS.

    I think I'd trust RIM or even MS more with Enterprise phones than any Android vendor.

    I'm curious as to why Samsung would bother with RIM when they have such a stronghold on the market. No way should they feel threatened by them.

    Funny commercials aside... the Android OS needs to get security under control. I can't have my phone collecting data for some covert 3rd party.
