  • Taking A Closer Look At BlackBerry's EZ Pass Program And BES10 Uptake [View article]
    @ exquisitewhiskey

    "The EVER friendly KIA has for multiple times apologized for false accusation, mislekeeps ading statement."

    This is not the first time that Mrkia has stuck his foot in his mouth. The thing is he keeps doing it over and over. Friendly no, con artist yes...

  • Taking A Closer Look At BlackBerry's EZ Pass Program And BES10 Uptake [View article]
    @Roll up the RIM

    This part is flawed - thinking that those that sign up will not want support...

    "BlackBerry hopes enterprise customers will upgrade away from its Free Perpetual Silver Licenses offered as part of the EZ Pass Program."

    Would a company settle with a silver license with no support? They would not be eligible for software upgrades and updates, highly unlikely...

    "TECHNICAL SUPPORT IS INCLUDED
    Your new Silver licenses come with complimentary BlackBerry Advantage Level Technical Support until January 31, 2015. This gives you 24x7 access to mobility experts for 5 named callers. Plus, software upgrades and updates are included during the complimentary support period. At the end of the complimentary support period, you will be charged the Annual Technical Support Advantage Program Fee of $900 and a per device Fee of $8.00 based on the number of active BES10 Silver licenses.4"

    http://bit.ly/1pPNXBX

    So if Mrkia thinks that companies will not opt for support, one has to think that he would be wrong again...

  • BlackBerry: If Morgan Stanley Rates It 'Underweight', Is It Worth Considering? [View article]
    @vigma

    From John Chen himself,

    "Yep. I’ve built a reputation for being honest and realistic. People don’t necessarily love what I say, but they know it’s the truth."

  • BlackBerry -4.7% after Morgan Stanley downgrade [View news story]
    @RJ

    And we are whining stating that James Faucette is protecting Morgan Stanley's 1,459,752 share investment in MobileIron .

    The only one that will be taking lumps is MS if they don't dump their shares of MobileIron...but they really can't do that because they were one of the underwriters for MobileIron's IPO.

    "The goal could be to neutralize a competing stock,"

    It just so happens that Morgan Stanley owns 1,459,752 shares of MobileIron (Sept. 30,2014)

    @BugleBoy

    BB has 30 years security history, twice that of MobileIron.

    MobileIron is going down and Faucette knows it. By the time this party is over, Faucette is going to have some pretty angry investors to deal with. (of course this is just my opinion)

    @CKent

    Maybe it is ridiculous as BB's cash alone values the shares over $6....

    This manipulation goes above and beyond, imo...

  • BlackBerry Launches BES 12, Partners With Samsung To Ride The MDM Wave [View article]
    author

    "Trefis has a $9 price estimate for BlackBerry, which is about 20% below the current market price."

    Your article seems incomplete...shouldn't you at least explain how you get your $9 share price?

    "Although BlackBerry is the current leader in the MDM space, with about 14.4% market share according to IDC, it is losing share to rivals such as MobileIron."

    Can you provide a link to back up this statement?

    Were you in a hurry and just wanted to state your opinion that BB's share price should be $9?

  • Are BlackBerry Shorts Getting Too Cocky? [View article]
    With Investors day announcing the many partnerships it has acquired over the past year seems risky, imo, to remain short.

    "BlackBerry announced today that Ingram Micro, Orange France SA, Verizon Wireless, Vodafone, DMI and many other partners and mobile operators around the world are now offering BES12: a cross-platform EMM solution by BlackBerry made available today. BlackBerry has worked closely with a broad-base of global resellers to ensure that its enterprise product portfolio is delivered effectively and swiftly into the market.

    BES12 provides expanded EMM capabilities that can manage any mobile deployment model such as BYOD, COPE and COBO, and is built on BlackBerry’s trusted network. The BES12 platform supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS.

    BB is aggressively selling BES12 and added features and now has plenty of partners to assist in selling...

  • No China Deal And Samsung 'Partnership' Raises Questions For BlackBerry [View article]
    @cereal

    "With Blackberry already having flunked out of the handset business and the march towards commoditization of MDM by cloud companies and continued unstoppable erosion of their market share, Blackberry's share price is overvalued."

    You fail to be keeping up with BB's progress. Last ER BB reported a profit in hardware and has since released the Passport which is receiving great reviews. Although we may not know the number of Passports sold, we do know that demand is exceeding supply. Not so bad, hardly a flunk.

    You have obviously not heard that BB is offering software and services as a way of generating revenue and is offering these products cross platform. An interesting article by Chris Umiastowski

    http://bit.ly/1qKaHlp

    BB is well on track to being cash flow positive and has potential to be a much more profitable company in the future, hardly overvalued...

    Here is a message from John Chen

    "No imminent plans for China."

    Doesn't mean that BB is giving up on China....

    Chen states ,"these security concerns, however, will not stop Blackberry from exploring ways to enter "a great market. China may be "sometimes sensitive because of security" issues, he added. "But there are opportunities."

  • BlackBerry Pairs With Samsung [View article]
    @hz06

    Another part of the event was John Chen speaking about BB's competitors. He made very bold predictions that should be seen instead of just reading about.

    Here is a video

    "overall, not too bad. as always, John Chen and the team don't want to over promise. lot of highly technical stuff"

    I agree...

    John Chen and team were very busy and had accomplished a lot, very impressive, imo.

    Just read this article by Chris Umiastowski, an interesting read....

    "BlackBerry is on the cusp of returning as a growth company"

    http://bit.ly/1qKaHlp

    Those thinking any more than what John Chen had guide for the next couple of quarters just might be disappointed; but then again, hardware might surprise...

    P.S. Good to hear that you were able to cancel your trade :)
