  • BlackBerry Could Be This Year's Winner [View article]
    Marcap, " BlackBerry has become an irrelevant company with an irrelevant product" wow. That is quite a statement about a company whose product is in 65% of all cars on the road today. Are you telling me that iOS and Android are so powerful that they can now replace all the cars on the road?

    Kunarooney, I don't know who the last big company to adopt BBRY is, but if you look at a list of the Fortune 500 and throw a dart, I bet you hit one that is currently using BBRY.

  • Most U.S. consumers remain either unfamiliar with or unenthusiastic about Nokia (NOK) and BlackBerry's (BBRY) latest hardware, according to an MKM survey of 1,500 people. While 51% of respondents owned a smartphone, only 6% plan to buy a BlackBerry in the next 12 months, and just 1% a Nokia phone. Moreover, in spite of the Z10 and Lumia 920/820 launches, 63% of respondents had no idea when BB10 would launch in the U.S., and 61% were unaware WP8 (MSFT) phones are available. BlackBerry is counting on a fresh marketing push to raise its U.S. profile. [View news story]
    The way I look at it, that is about 5% higher market share than what BBRY has now, that is a huge improvement and quite frankly good news. Within the last 12 months most people were saying they will be lucky to have 1% so 6% is a home run.

  • BlackBerry (BBRY -6.9%) plummets as the WSJ reports AT&T (T) "doesn't appear to be highlighting" the Z10 on its launch day, or "giving it prominent shelf space at its stores." The paper observes "fewer than 20 people" arrived at two Manhattan AT&T stores to see the Z10, and that a San Francisco store chose to display it "at a back corner of the store, away from a large sign advertising the iPhone 5." (earlier[View news story]
    Did anyone really think there would be lines for the BB10? BlackBerry users are smart, busy people, which happens to be the exact opposite of the people lining up to buy an Iphone. They will buy at their convenience.

  • 10 Reasons To Go Long BlackBerry [View article]
    yongzhou, how did you get to see their balance sheet a week before earnings are released? Last earnings report showed 1.910 billion and 821 million in short-term investments, that basically means cash, add the 2 togther and you get 2.7 billion. Not quite 3 billion, but closer to 3 than it is 2.

  • 10 Reasons To Go Long BlackBerry [View article]
    Dlepski, so you managed to find another BBRY basher, good for you, I am sure it was difficult. For everyone of these articles that put down the phone, there is one that speaks of its merits. Personal opinions vary greatly in this world and that is why there is room for more than 2 operating systems. Harrywins, if one of your 25 easons is lack of apps, change the title to 24 reasons, the lack of apps is a non-issue. I would really enjoy reading that article though so I am looking forward to it.

  • Research In Motion (RIMM -1.7%) is sliding a bit ahead of Thursday's FQ3 report, possibly thanks to critical comments from UBS' Phillip Huang. He thinks RIM's recent rally "is reminiscent of Palm which saw shares go from $3 to a peak of ~$18, only to fall back down to $3.76 in about 15 months." (William Blair) (Bernstein[View news story]
    It is also reminiscent of AAPL's move from $8 to $18, which then went to $ 700.

  • Why Research In Motion Is Still Cheap [View article]
    "Virtually no smartphone users are going to ditch their iPhones or Androids for a Blackeberry" Is a vastly different statement than " Are you honestly telling me that BB10 will cause the HERDS of Apple faithful to ditch their iPhones? ". The answer to the second question is no, but RIMM doesn't need that herd to switch, they just need some of them to, and your supposition in the first comment is that no one will. You are going to opposite extremes to try and prove a point.

  • Research In Motion: Bad Speculative Play With Big Risk [View article]
    I am so tired of the comments of RIM being too late. I didn't hear anyone say that Blu-Ray is too late, DVD's already have 100% of the market, and don't say it is different, because we haven't seen whether the new Blackberrys will be a game changer or not, like Blu-Rays are. Not even 10% of the worlds population have smartphones, to declare one or two winners, and everyone else as losers seems premature to me.

  • A 4G LTE version of Research In Motion's (RIMM +3.5%) PlayBook tablet will finally arrive on July 31, MobileSyrup reports. The device is said to feature a dual-core 1.5 GHz. processor, dual cameras, and 32GB of storage, and carry a $550 price tag. Given the PlayBook's negligible market share and the consumer preference for Wi-Fi-only tablets, odds are against the launch having much of an impact. (yesterday)  [View news story]
    So once again it seems that no matter what Apple does it is the right thing to do, even if it really isn't?

    Wait, let me get this straight, part of the reason the Playbook launch was so bad was because it was Wi-Fi only, now that RIM is coming out with a 4G LTE version, that doesn't help either? Which is it? I really wish you guys would make up your mind. It seems that no matter what RIM does it is wrong.
