  • BlackBerry: The Venice Launch Will Be A Positive Catalyst [View article]
    I guess some people don't like change or to play with new things.
    I'm sure your old Motorola will keep working for some time. You might want to update your rotary dial land line, however.

    Yeah, that was supposed to be "leak".

    They are apparently rolling out the new device(s) to employees for testing.

    "Images of BlackBerry's (NASDAQ:BBRY) new Android phone Venice recently leaked onto the net."

    New link shows dual boot.

    "Not true at all, I can send PayPal money to random email addresses and if there happens to be a recipient at that address they can collect it. Which is of course utterly pointless, but maybe I'm inclined to random acts of charity?"

    And you still have an email account (whether you were given it or made it up) of the recipient to start the transaction.

    I'm sure it will click in a minute or two.

    @Dennis Baker "I'm not sure where you get this idea that email needs to originate from the receiver... total nonsense"

    Because, you would need the email/PayPal Account of the receiver to send the money too.

    @Andreas Hopf "If you see the sheer size and number of Chinese ghost towns and ghost cities, you will notice that something is fundamentally amiss."

    Yup, at some point, the fake building is going to cause a crash that will affect the world economy. Lowering the interest rates isn't going to last very long. When the Fed meets in September they no longer can do QE, because it no longer works. So, they might have to do the other, which means increasing interest rates. This drop is probably just an prelude to the bigger one coming in a few weeks.

    @KIA,
    If you want to say that it is exactly the same, then YOU would be incorrect.
    Using the API that you point out the receiver would setup a method for the sender to connect to. The sender would still have to login to PayPal to complete the transaction. The sender would also possibly be given the PayPal login for the receiver.

    In the BBM version, there is no login or validation. The BBM account is the only information shared, which hides information like email and phone that other messaging services use.

    If you claim this is the same as the mobile API version (which you did in your post), then you are incorrect, because as I pointed out that is only for receiving.

    I'm sure you agree, that if the merchant provides the payment option, it will be up to the customer. There are a lot of people in PayPal Shop, so they must see some benefit to it.

    Now that PayPal is free to work with Amazon, then it could open up a whole new level of possible transactions.

    @bwsf

    Did you miss the previous post about what I said about marketing?

    However, getting those who CURRENTLY use BBM to start sending money using PayPal BBM would be a start. And since BBM is available on all phones and PayPal BBM will be available for all of those phones, for free, it would be an easy request to tell people you can send them money through BBM PayPal. This process is another form of marketing.

    @David653 You can have your opinion on it and I can have my opinion based on what I know. We'll both find out after it goes live world wide.

    "So if I'm joe merchant, I'd much rather take a debit card, an NFC debit card and maybe even a standard credit card over PayPal because the fees will be smaller. "

    Or a PayPal Credit Card

    True, there has been news also about HTC struggling to make a profit in Android phones as well.

    But, I think the current down slide has to do with the overall economy and not some recent news releases.

    Meant to type "ads".

    Anyway, yes, that works perfectly fine for those currently using BBM.

    I don't know if you have noticed or not, but the stock markets are dropping. A lot of times, overall sentiment in the market affects other stocks. Unless Apple released some bad news that I'm not aware of, I don't see how this PayPal announcement or phones rumors have affected BlackBerry's share price. It would seem that the overall market is trending down and some companies are feeling a bigger pinch than others.

    I don't expect BlackBerry to improve their marketing any time soon.
    What I expect will be adds within BBM and maybe some small amounts on Internet advertising.
