All companies die. RIM is still a large player in the smartphone space, but its edge is shrinking.  A Bloomberg article today shows that the insiders have not purchased any shares since July 2010, and are preparing for the end (or at least not doubling up on the loads of stock they already have been granted).
Apple was called, “…obsolete, irrelevant…” in 1994, and almost went bankrupt. So reversals can happen rapidly. But these days it is unwise to underestimate the speed with which software can neuter the strongest hardware advantage.
