Official RIM Statement on US BlackBerry Stores Closing Report

Official RIM Statement on US BlackBerry Stores Closing Report

Earlier today, a rumor was spreading that Research In Motion was beginning to close all of its U.S.-based BlackBerry branded Wireless Giant stores. We reached out to RIM and a spokesperson released the following statement:

“We can confirm that the BlackBerry branded retail location in Boston has closed. We are not prepared to comment on rumours or speculation about other BlackBerry branded retail locations in the US. We’re constantly studying the consumer market and how customers make purchases. Consumers still have many options to buy BlackBerry products from over 20,000 retail locations in the US and online at ShopBlackBerry.com.”

So while it’s a revealing, yet not revealing statement, it does show RIM has likely taken into account whether or not those retail stores have any activity. Whether or not we’ll see all of them remain open is still up in the air, but it may be a wise choice to hang on to some of the more strategically located stores for once BlackBerry 10 officially releases.

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
