There’s a rumor going around that in a last ditch effort to save their mobile phone business, Research in Motion (RIMM) is coming out with a Gordan Gekko cell phone, just like the one he used on the beach in the movie Wall Street.
New RIM CEO Thorsten Heins said it was looking back to go forward.
The company is trying to target Wall Street traders who love Gordon Gekko and remember those good old days on Wall Street when bonuses were enormous and insider trading was everywhere. While the phone is quite large it’s also more durable and won’t break if you drop it or throw it across the room after a trade goes bad due to the Greece bailout not falling through.
The phone will still have the famous Blackberry keyboard so users can type text and email messages and it will have the words “Greed is Good” written on the back of the phone.
