    • oneinfiniteloop: @Seppo2 - an important point in there is - "...we remain the only mobile solution approved for use at 'Restricted'"...

    • oneinfiniteloop: They also say that they are actively working with CESG to address their concern. Lets see who else will even come close to that level...

    • oneinfiniteloop: BTW: BB 7.1 is already certified, so in the meantime they will still sell that in the "Restricted" category. Its matter of a month or two.

    • Antony Luckshman: You left out one minor point. Only BB7 has passed this test, no other mobile OS iOS, Anroid or WP.

    • jcllier3: Not worth it OIL, $NOK longs are underwater and desperate.
      3/19/13
    • jcllier3: $BBRY longs have no need to trash $NOK, just keep making money shorting it.

    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: So, @Sonbuster has posted 7 Stocktalk threads in the last 4 hours, but did not post this story...
      3/19/13
    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: ...while he still went and wrote down some counterpoints at around 8PM regarding this news on some other site. Selective reporting? :)
      3/19/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: @jclier3, @seppo2, @eld, @luke, @bilton we all have some history on $NOK board and I have a lot of respect for all of them and their views.

    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: and you missed it just because someone has decided to only post good stuff?
      3/19/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: @seppo2, BB10 is a completely new platform so it is commendable that $BBRY has been able to come this far so quickly w.r.t., security.
      3/19/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: @seppo2, you know that Guardian has been twisting stories about $BBRY for sometime now and cannot be taken seriously. If the stock drops...

    • oneinfiniteloop: I will consider that as a big opportunity to buy! I am sure you will buy as well.
      3/19/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: If there are weak hands currently invested in $BBRY that get swayed by such news then this is the opportunity for them to sell.

    • Nefas: Seppo2 i am not gonna sell my shares cause of one minor setback. and it isnt rly any setback cause not a single os passed this test except 7

    • chattyintrovert: @Nefas it is weird that the British have issue, and Americans and Germans are okay with it. This does not pass the smell test.

    • chattyintrovert: @Seppo2 If you really do have a PhD, you should be embarrassed. Your post lacks any objectivity - only the pure emotion of greed. Shame!
