    The Q10 carrier price is $50 higher than the Z10.

    Guess you'll have to change those estimates.

    "The Z10 is the flagship phone for BlackBerry's new 10 OS"

    Actually, it is only the mid-tier phone. The high end one isn't out yet.

  • Has BlackBerry's Smartphone Business Gotten Dumb? [View article]
    You keep adding PlayStation and Nintendo. Do you think someone would buy a $200 - 600 phone without using the "phone" part of the device?

    The only ones that matter are smart phones and regular phones and it doesn't matter which platform it comes from, because it wasn't from BlackBerry. That means it is a new customer and that BlackBerry has captured. Are you going to at least admit the truth of that?

  • Has BlackBerry's Smartphone Business Gotten Dumb? [View article]
    40-50% of all new Z10 buyers came from iOS or Android. Windows phone is a nothing burger. So, not only have they sold the minimum phones needed to start profiting off each additional sale, they have begun to get buyers from outside their current base.

    Since the smart phone market is still expanding, you no longer need to have 50% of the market to be a viable business. Back in the day, not having any debt and making cash over expenses was enough to show value for a good stock price. Now that the stock market has disconnected itself from reality, apparently you need a cult following to be worth anything.

    To reiterate, not everyone needs to be Subway to be successful. By making a profit, it means the company has room to grow. The pie is not static, it grows and contracts, having a 10 percent of the pie today means something different tomorrow.

    They only needed to sell 1.4 million Z10s to make a profit. If they sold to every one of their 70 million subscribers, I'm betting it would hold the company and their $2 billion in reserves with ZERO debt over for some time.

  • BlackBerry: The Fascinating Journey Will Continue [View article]
    You'll only have to wait until the end of April to do the side by side comparison.

    I'm also on the fence as to whether I would prefer the touch screen or a real keyboard, like the one on the 9930 I currently use.

  • BlackBerry Or Nokia - Which Is A Better Turnaround Story? [View article]
    BB10 also has a tablet

    If you are going to count the XBox as the same as the phone, might as well count the stereos on all the car models that run QNX.

  • BlackBerry: Despite Report, U.K. Sales Look Good [View article]
    My company upgraded our BES to BES 5 with Office 365, which just was released. the BES 10 with Office 365 won't be available until later this year. Companies probably won't upgrade to BES 10 completely until the end of the year.

    The U.S. launch isn't finished, so how can it be called disappointing?

  • BlackBerry Reminds Me Of Palm Just Before The End [View article]
    Bringing the Z out first allows them to do any final tweaks before the Q comes out. The Q will probably outsell the Z when it comes to upgrades. The Z is aimed at the iPhone and Android users, who are already used to having glitches with their phones.

  • Why BlackBerry's Turnaround May Not Last [View article]
    Aristo is in the pipeline.

    From a basic understanding of what Thor has said and other tidbits, the Z10 is not the flagship device. There will be 3 each of full screen and keyboard devices. The Z10 and Q10 are probably the middle tier devices and there will be high-end and low-end version.

    "I keep seeing this thing about only having a 1.5 Ghz processor"

    Yes, by those that can't figure out that you want the OS to use less resources to do the same job to prevent the battery from being drained faster than a bucket full of buck shot.
