BlackBerry maker RIM loses more senior executives

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) has recently lost additional executives at the VP and senior VP level that have left the company in the days following the recent dismal earnings call.
The source that included “people close to the company” apparently were unable to say whether the executives quit or were let go as part of CEO Thorsten Heins’s undertaking to conduct a “comprehensive review of strategic opportunities”
Just last week former co-CEO Jim Balsillie, CTO of software David Yach, and COO Jim Rowan all moved on from the company which could indicate that Thorstein is indeed cleaning house at all levels of the company.
These changes may be necessary  to resolve the company’s fast shrinking market share as it competes with Apple Inc. and devices powered by Google’s Android operating system.
RIM was most recently hit with another patent suit by Dutch semiconductor company, a DXP Semiconductors NV alleging that certain models of its BlackBerry smartphone and PlayBook tablet infringe on its patents.
