BlackBerry fans team-up to boycott Netflix (IntoMobile)
Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) users don’t like Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) and their policy to keep its mobile client out of the Canadian company’s new platform. Few unofficial apps found their way to the BlackBerry World, but were promptly pulled after the video streaming/rental service complained. To make things worse, Netflix, Inc.

The company’s CEO, who used to be a Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) user himself and has switched to the iPhone in the meantime, will rather “wait and see” until BlackBerry 10 reaches the tipping point.
