  • Will BlackBerry Follow The Nokia X With A BlackBerry X? I Hope So [View article]
    Why would BB even consider making an Android Phone...NOT gonna happen....BB10 is the High End OS with the Bold running 7 going back into production. BB10 is far superior to anything that Android can put out with the recent 10.2.1...

    Now what may happen, and if I was a betting man I would bet the house on this, is that now that Google has sold Motorola, it will allow BB10 phones to down load from Google play as opposed to going through Amazon or 1Market as I do or even side-loading apps.

  • BlackBerry Name Change And Spin-Offs Next? [View article]
    One thing to point out, not ALL of the handset business went to Foxconn....just those for the emerging markets. The High End stuff stays in house, or it is my understanding...

  • BlackBerry Has One Last Chance [View article]
    Curious as to why the Z10 is such a mistake....I really enjoy mine....great phone...I bought it because my 9810 was on its last leg and was going to get a Q10 when it came out....but now am keeping it till the A10 comes out.

  • BlackBerry: Z10 Likely To Fail, Q10 And Q5 Give Hope [View article]
    You lost me the minute you said Z10 is an iPhone Copy....I guess since they are square, black or white and have icons in a grid its a copy...

    Guess why the estimate for second quarter is close to 9 Million Units...of which only 4 are BB10 Units,,,,

    The third and forth quarters are going to be HUGE with the release of the Q10 in the US and the Q5 in the rest of the world....

    Hub is awesome, easy, looks good, and makes instant communication possible. It truly is as Thorsten says for Hyper Connected People.

    I bought the Z10 the day it came out on ATT and was going to sell it when the Q10 came out for the keyboard...but the virtual keyboard on the Z10 has won me over. By the second day it was showing ma'am and as a good southern boy you know I have to have ma'am in my keyboard. The flick to type is incredible.

    There are some reports of BB10 rebooting but it seems that it is fixed in BB10.1 which is on the Q10 and will be released for the Z10 in the states real soon. Mine has rebooted twice since march and both times it was like it got confused and just threw its hands up and said I am done and started over. Not really a big deal for me.

    BB is already working on BB10.2 to stay ahead of the curve. They also will be releasing a new phablet before the Holidays.

    Apps are often sighted as a reason not to get a new BB10 Phone. Its a highly over rated reason. I have all I want and if I cant get it from BB I can get a ported version. 10.2 will upgrade the Android runtime to 4 something. The had more apps at release than WP8 had by a wide margin. As for as Apple and Google Play, all I need is 2000 Flashlight Apps with 2000 fart noise making apps.

    And Lord knows I cannnot do without Instagram....yet to come to BB10 offically although I have a ported version I never use....so maybe I can do without it, dont think I even know how to use instagram....

    Several Issues Actually....

    This is what MSFT 18th attempt at a Mobile OS. I am sure you will correct me if wrong but it has in application notification difficulties. It is based upon that dog of an OS Windows 8. It is not secure, and is your typical buggy MSFT Product....

    WP8 rise to 3rd will be short lived once the BB10 shipments are included in the upcoming quarters. BB10 will start to push iOS and Android for 1st and 2nd....soon

  • BlackBerry: Too Late To Openness [View article]
    I still see these articles as pointless except from a lessons leaned look at how not to do things...becasue there is a new Sheriff in town and Blackberry is on the way up. There are still headwinds coming no doubt but for the most part the sailing will be a lot smoother than it has been.

    Even with all the bad things they did, they still did the most important...bought QNX and set up the coming of BB10.
