  • Security; The Reason To Buy And Hold BlackBerry [View article]
    lol. Only one. Just excited about it. I used the Z10 a few times and love it. The gestures are sweet and the keyboard: sweeter. But I really like physical keyboards. Had a couple sliders but they just weren't built the same as a high quality slab so I stuck with my slimy smudgy slab phones since...until now. I also went to slabs because I thought I'd game on them more but I don't. Play Shadowgun which is flat and boring and I played Order & Chaos for bit but got bored. After a while I only found myself browsing the web and texting/emailing.

    "If they introduce a larger screen sized version and a lower priced version, they will benefit." They did Michael! It's called the iPad mini - they just forgot to add phone capabilities.
    In all seriousness, Apple are the gods of resizing and calling it "innovation". One would think they would have released a phablet by now.

  • Feeling the pressure from Samsung, Apple (AAPL) is mulling the launch over the next year of so-called phablets - iPhones with 4.7" and 5.7" screens - reports Reuters, whose sources include those in the Asian supply chain. Also on the agenda are cheaper iPhone models, perhaps in the $99 range. "They constantly change product specifications almost to the final moment," cautions one of the sources. [View news story]
    Sounds like what BBRY did. Yep.

    nice reply wiesje. I agree with you on the NOK comment about it taking 3 years to come back. That's one of the reasons I have stayed away from the stock. It's cheap which makes it attractive but it can still go lower. The first Windows Phone was released some time in 2011 and it has taken quite a while for the phones to gain traction. This could be the fate of BBRY as well, maybe not. With all that being said, MoWin was going to be my next choice for smart phones had it not been for BB10. My sister has a Lumia 900 and it's a cool little device that seems solid and reliable but I don't like the interface. The live tiles are fine but gimmicky for my tastes and I don't like how the apps are in list form. Very Zunesque, if you have used a Zune--EVERYTHING is presented as a list on that platform and MoWin(7). With the exception of iOS7, I appreciate the aesthetic value of a lot of Apple products but they don't fit my personality and lifestyle. I like to be able to replace my battery and add memory if deemed prudent--Mussolini might disagree with me on that but that's neither here nor there. I wouldn't be surprised if AAPL touches 350 in the near-term with the iOS7 fiasco. If it does I'll consider buying some (buy during times of maximum pessimism, I don't think we're there yet), but not NOK. Not till they are posting consistent profits.
    Take 'er easy wiesje. Would like to see Europe soon.

  • BlackBerry: Shorts Increase, Longs Wait Patiently [View article]
    ...WHat? Are you suggesting the shorts AREN'T playing pingpong with eachother to make the bulls angry?

    Unless Thor is actually a woman with a degree in Cosmetology (or some other unsavory inside info on an employee of BBRY). I don't think there is any reason for the shorts to be short other than blind stupidity/pride or their pretty hedge held by some off-shore "Trading Group".

    That's exactly my logic too onetreehill but BBRY also increase marketing and ads expense significantly (somewhere near +50%). We will see.

    no chance xxchoicexx. DoD announcement will cause a squeeze before earnings. There would be a bigger stock accumulation than there seems to be with earnings right around the corner (maybe the runnup will start next week?). That tells me earnings won't be phenomenal or that people really and truly do not believe in the company.

    That's my conclusion too. It will be more when the squeeze actually starts and day traders/swing traders funnel into the money vendor.

  • BlackBerry Is Still Fighting With 1 Hand Tied Behind Its Back [View article]
    Not to mention infrastructure in India is terrible as far as wireless connectivity goes. So ecosystems on phones isn't a necessity as it is in America where everyone needs to be entertained 24/7. Mark my words, in the coming months, people will start flocking to BBRY when they realize their reliability and, hell, BATTERY life! Lets face it, Samsung phones are cheap, cheap, cheap. Nokias and Blackberries (especially the Q10) are superior in all regards for what developing countries need. Durability, battery life, reliability, utility and usability.

    I know the differences. Thankyou

    " Therefore when it comes to malware, without additional security software installed, a Blackberry is just as vulnerable to such unauthorized activity as any other device, regardless of what Blackberry or its supporters may claim." No, without companies to write the malware, Blackberry has nothing to worry about. Malware isn't adaptive. It's written for a specific machine language to be executed by said machine. As it stands, Blackberry 10 is the MOST secure platform in the world right now until viruses and malware are written for it. Android has the highest library of malicious software due to it having the highest market share. BB10 users have virtually nothing to worry about.
