    Android's fragmentation will be its downfall.

    They can't afford a Passport 2, which is why the Z3/Leap exists.
    BlackBerry still believes that if you get them started, then they'll stay when they can afford to upgrade.

    Just like offering Hub for iOS and Android. It doesn't make any real sense, unless it is a way to give them a taste of BB10 and make them think about switching over.

  • BlackBerry: It's Time To Take The Blinders Off [View article]
    So, you finally admit that CarPlay does nothing and is just a virtual player on another infotainment system. Which, for over 50% of vehicles, is QNX.

    Thanks.

    As for "IOS apps won't run on QNX".

    "but perhaps the most recent BlackBerry APIs), the POSIX compliance means there's an alternative. Like the "tens of thousands of open-source Linux packages available written in C and C++", if they run on Linux or Mac OS X, then your enterprise's custom line-of-business apps will be easy to port to Neutrino for the PlayBook, points out Dan Dodge, president of QNX software systems at RIM. "

    Sorry, must have missed this comment.

    AppleCar and it's apps runs on QNX Car 2 platform.
    So, it wouldn't be a stretch to run iOS apps on BB10, which uses QNX. As oppose to when KIA says BB10 isn't QNX.

  • BlackBerry: Will It Really Be A Transitional Quarter? [View article]
    "Does anyone build a car with two transmissions?"

    Well, to your analogy, using the virtual vs the physical is the same as using paddles or shifter to shift the automatic transmission. The physical keyboard still sends a command to the OS, which is the same as typing on the virtual keyboard, it is just two methods of doing the same thing.

    " he cost is it screws up the OS and make it needlessly complex"
    Since you probably don't know this, the Passport has both a physical and virtual keyboard. The top row of the keyboard is virtual and changes based on what you are typing. If you go into certain fields, then a whole new set of keyboard keys appears in the virtual area beyond the forth row.

    Also, an app called Silent Keys (http://blck.by/1FacMir) creates a complete virtual keyboard for the Passport. Even with different alphabets.

    It causes no complexity to the OS, since the functionality is already built-in.

    I guess I only observed the $199 price with contract for the Z10. I would assume the price was high for unlocked phones, because you couldn't get one.

    My Z30 was just around $500 last year and has much better specs. So, it is hard to believe that the Z10 was priced at Passport levels.

    The Q5 wasn't initially launched in the US, so I can't say what the price was, but it was much less than the Q10.


    I read an article on ApplePay and apparently it is a card swipers dream. Just take a photo and add it to the wallet and then buy some Apple stuff.

    AAPL stores are apparently full from criminals using ApplePay to rip off credit cards.

    I guess you didn't know that the Q5, Z3 and Z10 were already "cheap" phones and that the one just announced is a replacement. Something that every normal phone company does every year or so.

    Welp, they have a curved slider phone now.

    Guess the stock price will go up some on that alone.

    A lot of partnering going on with the healthcare industry.

    Won't see the results this quarter, but it will make an impact in the future.

    Well AT&T on-line sold out of the Passports they had in the first day.

    They're back in stock now. So, that is an alternative to Amazon and the BlackBerry Shop.

    This must be the longest time between BlackBerry articles in a long time.
    BlackBerry just started rolling out 10.3.1 to all devices, yet no new articles. Not even the old good stand by of posting debunked information from a year ago.

    @KIA "would have the same access to your BlackBerry as the application itself – a major risk of hijacking your phone"

    If you gave the app permissions, then the JavaScript would have the same access as those permission.

    It still does not affect the OS. Keep digging all you like.

    "The BIG difference is that Good's Secure Domain technology is incorporated into Samsung's KNOX secure operating system; something BlackBerry cannot claim."

    You mean, Good can't provide the proper security that BES 12 can without being integrated into KNOX software. Well, that's limiting.

    Since you either didn't read the report or didn't understand the findings, let me help you out.

    None of the apps breached BB10 OS Security.
    None of the apps breached user data stored on a BB10 device.

    The issue with the apps in question was that data requested by the app was sent unencrypted to servers. In other words, if the app requested the PIN ID from the user and the user accepted, it was sent as plain text to a server from the app. In the case of the developer, Nemory, he was sending all sorts of things from his apps to his server, which was not necessary for the purpose of the apps.

    In summary, if you allow an app to have info, you risk how that info is used by that app.
