  • Top pension fund: BlackBerry lacked recovery plan [View news story]
    Before The CEO of AIMCO bashes BlackBerry, i would rather trust CANSO and Brookfield who put their money up ! Plus the AIMCO CEO who I believe personally as a director was involved in the First Leaside real estate bankruptcy that went belly up and is now being investigated, so i guess he got cold feet on BlackBerry. Well no Mr Bever we need more Canada Inc and so Far Prem Watsa and his bond consortium are assisting ! ( First Leaside : )

  • BlackBerry Is Becoming A Fringe Smartphone Player [View article]
    keep using your unsecured & inefficient iphone / Android email and messaging phones. Love my Z30 productivity and add the Google apps which will be available to the new BB10. 10.2.1 OS is all I need. Heck it will trounce what I can get on iphone and Android. So lets give Mr Chen time and I can't wait for his productivity management PUSH cloud services to come to BES and as a Prosumer I would pay for Prosumer BES Cloud services.

  • Will BlackBerry 10 Live Up To Investor Hype? [View article]
    Now I hate to tell this author but I will , I am a business/healthcare consultant professional & musician. I use my updated BB7 software with a large SEIDIO battery in my BOLD 9900 with my Playbook LTE to function my day.
    I also have a iP5 , iPAD, iTouch in my family and I have used the Lumia 900. So at parties and music projects I have used the iPhone for the fancy real estate screen, browser and music features. But reading my large PDF's. BBM voice and email hyper-connection my Bold 9900 is key. The Lumia 900 I will just say forget it !
    Also, I have had the privilege to use a BB10 with its BB10 Hub and its music features and browsing power , result the BB10 gives me the 9900 hyperconnection + BBM + BBHub and powerful browser + music features and more.
    The iPhone and the " forget it " Win 8 phones vs the BB10 there is no comparison , BB10 will be my phone !

  • Advice For John Chen And The Rest Of BlackBerry's Management [View article]
    Well as a 9900 / iPhone 5 combo user for 1.5 years, my Z30 is a God send today.
    The iPhone was mainly my social & browser phone when I had the 9900.
    The toyish email of the iPhone was not an effective productivity email platform and no native file manager to speak of is a joke . Thank God that combo is over ! My Z30 and the 10.2.1 OS is my mobile Tool !!. I do have all the key Apps, FB, Netflix, Twitter/BLAQ, LinkedIn , Instagram/iGRAMM , SA app, Evernote, My Trainer/Sports Tracker, Adobe writer, Prind Hand, PGA , Bloomberg / Bloomberg Anywhere, Wall Street , Storymaker App, BlackBerry Express App etc etc...Also, my Z30 5 inch screen renders my mobile site's very well with the core processors in the Z30. Now did my iPhone Freeze? Well of course it did !!

    The most important productivity tool besides my Z30 HUB , Native File manager , best intuitive tri-lingual fast virtual keyboard, fast sharing browser, HDMI, Miracast , WiFi Direct , NFC , BBM , was the battery of the Z30. Getting 15 to 18 hours of heavy power use was very easy and with periodic charging here and there like in my car etc.. I get over 24 hours of phone time wall huggers on this end !!

    P.S : my buddies who have the Q10 / Q5 love their phone's and are eagerly waiting for the Classic & Passport !!

    LAST but NOT LEAST was BlackBerry Security / BlackBerry Balance !!

  • BlackBerry Inching Back Toward Towards Black Ink [View article]
    PW stock sale is in keeping to his agreement with BlackBerry. He has agreed to hold no higher than 19.9% and no lower than 9.9% of BlackBerry Shares. So he sold from his subsidiaries. Anyway even though Third Point sold out his 10M shares, what was not reported much on CNBC Or Bloomberg was SAC / P72 Cohen company bought 11.2M shares of BlackBerry. My feedback from my Indonesia contact is the Z3 is great and loves the phone and has all the social apps. And....oh.....its sold-out at his store. He works at HP !!

  • Daniel Loeb Is Buying BlackBerry- Should You? [View article]
    Is BlackBerry about the HARDWARE or much more ???
    Yup this is all a Hardware focused article....I have a Z30 / Q10 with the new 10.2.1 OS + Google apps and used a 9900/iP5 ( for the browser ) for over a year, so I have a iP5 lingering around. The Z30 / Q10 phones are awesome. The battery is great on the Z30 & Q10 , the Email HUB and attachment email & more is absolutely the best , fabulous virtual and physical tri-lingual intuitive fast keyboard, share messaging is great , Storymaker and Blackberry Express native apps I use daily, Remember/Evernote native App is ...well I have 20 productive folders so far, great To Do apps, great native file manager , Re-mote to PC & MAC over WiFI no 3rd party apps required, new BBM is awesome, Mobile printing with a Google printing App is great , Wireless HDMI , Internal Radio and I can list more HARDWARE features ! The HARDWARE is great with so much mis-information out there, but I am still surprised they still compare iOS to the BB7 phones ! All I know is when I show my BlackBerry Z30/Q10 to my iOS users people are surprised. Some are converting and my BBM contact list has grown from 12 to over 50. Again that's the HARDWARE ! Can the BB10 OS be improved you betcha and from what I hear that's coming soon ( ) ! We can ask the same question about the iOS toyish email but I am sure that will improve ....Hope ! Again that's HARDWARE ! BlackBerry focus now is beyond HARDWARE ( Foxconn deal ) egg. BBM Money , BES 10 , QNX etc... maybe that's why Prem Watsa, Loeb, Citron , Mackenzie Financial, Canso , BAM , Markel , Qatar holdings are investing in BBRY . The Canadian Pension Plans are probably reviewing John Chens plan for the company to make an announced investment in BlackBerry...another possibility !! We cannot call this list of great investors stupid. I remember as if it were yesterday, back in 2005/2006 they criticized Prem Watsa on the USA housing short position ...yup ...$250M and he turned it into $2B approx. The Bank of Ireland was another big financial mess but Prem Watsa, Wilbur Ross and Canadian Pension Plans made good on that deal ...rumours are they made 5 times their money..... but who is counting ! But again it's all about the HARDWARE and the BlackBerry Hardware is great today and will only get better but John Chen and his BlackBerry Team are being Entreprise , Prosumer Software focused and much more $$ Long BBRY shares and LEAPs
