Developers are leaving BlackBerry OS, starting with Seesmic

Unfortunately for RIM, BlackBerry smartphones have not been selling well lately. Neither has the PlayBook; outside of total geeks and frequent TV-watchers, who actually knows of its existence? At least people know about BlackBerrys. That's probably why they're staying away from them.

RIM's developers, even though they should've a long time ago, are only now starting to realize that this is the case. Seesmic, a popular social networking aggregator, has officially announced the discontinuation of its app on BlackBerry OS devices for the more popular iOS, Android, and yes, even Windows Phone 7 platforms.

RIM has some serious issues it needs to take care of. From lying about putting a fantastic operating system on its phones to being oblivious to the fact that the company is dying, RIM and its employees need to act quickly to save whatever they have left. Otherwise, they're going to have a bankruptcy on their hands.
