    You hit the nail on the head. John Chen is nothing like Thor.

    I don't understand why people speak negatively about BlackBerry 10, and continue to refuse to try it out. An opinion is an opinion, sure, but that opinion would be a lot more worthy after trying the product you continue to speak negatively.

    BlackBerry 10 is the most secure, efficient, crash-free, highest performing, REAL multi-tasking, etc., mobile OS in existence.
    iOS is old and inefficient. Apple's marketing on the other hand keeps people drinking the Kool aid.

    BB10 is a microkernal OS has approx 100k lines of code,
    iOS and Android bloatware are over 15 millions lines.

    This is but one reason out of many that BB10 is superior.

  • BlackBerry Is On The Right Path [View article]
    Thanks for the great write up. It's not every day you get to read a balanced none bias article.

    Funny agree Crispin_in_Waterloo, at this point BlackBerry has become a hot stock play, because if and when John Chen turns this company around, it's going to go into the history books, or should I say eBooks ;)
    I for one am looking forward to BlackBerry's North American frontal attack with the rumoured 64-bit Z50 power house that is suppose to convert many and bring them onto BlackBerry. We already have full Android app support.
    And John Chen has stated they are working on something special and hope it comes by the hears end, if not sooner.

    Rock on BBRY.

  • Consider Buying BlackBerry Before Earnings [View article]
    Mr. Knowitall
    BB10 devices download and install over 90% of Android Apps. Foxconn deal is just that a great opportunity for both companies. And yes they will both share on the profits. What % for each only they know, but whispers are telling me 75% for BBRY, 25% Foxconn, and that is huge for Foxconn. Every other point is you made I disagree with.

    ""Chen himself now publicly admits that there is a 50% chance that his plan will fail...""

    Thanks for your opinion. I disagree with all that you said foe obvious reasons, but I need to correct you on your above statement. That is not what Mr. Chen said nor meant.

    BlackBerry CEO John Chen puts his odds of turning BlackBerry around at 50:50 in a recent interview with Financial Times, while some sites have been falsely reporting this as 50% chance of survival that is definitely not the case or point Mr. Chen made.

    QNX is the RTOS running the App called CardPlay. Without QNX it won't run. That said, Automakers need to ensure any Smart Phone communicates with CarPlay, not just iPhones. Not everybody has iPhones.

  • Protect Profits On BlackBerry Before Earnings [View article]
    I can't see the numbers being worst for this Quarter versus last Quarter. But the next Quarter should be much better now that they have new devices and an increasing BES10/BB10 adoption all across the world.

  • BlackBerry's QNX supports Apple's CarPlay [View news story]
    Mr. Knowitall
    ""This means that Apple CarPlay supports QNX and not the otherway around.""

    I was listening to you until you mentioned the above statement. Now I know you have absolutely no idea what you are talking to about.

    iOS "CANNOT" run on an automobile because it's not secure nor efficient enough. And iOS will "NEVER" be efficient enough. Automobiles need a "CRASH FREE" superior RTOS to ensure nothing goes wrong.

    So yes iOS "NEEDS" QNX or it ain't happening. FORD already made that huge MS mistake.

  • Apple's Missteps Could Be BlackBerry's Turnaround [View article]
    Interesting perspective.
    BlackBerry's security is solid, best in the industry. And ever since Mr. Chen took over as CEO, BBRY'S enterprise has seen a steady growth. Also looking forward to eBBM, where they've taken the already most secure messaging platform and made it even more secure for enterprise. This will make BBRY money.

    BlackBerry's continued innovations show its here to stay and open for business. Another note, regarding the US Air Force. Setting up BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and BB10 devices cost "MUCH LESS" than implementing Apples iOS. The added benefit, best Security and less cost going with BBRY.

    I believe the US Air Force have not given BB10 a chance and Re comparing the older BB7 with iOS. Despite the FACT, even BB7 beats out iOS7 in security.

    Thanks for the read.

  • WhatsApp Vs. BBM Security? Let Google Decide [View article]
    BBRY was given an simple choice give slight access to the Indian government or we will BAN BBRY from our Country.

    The thing we need to take from this is the fact BBRY fought hard against these demands, where as iOS and Android didn't require such demands, because they are HACKABLE.

    This is a testament and proof BBRY rules in security and user privacy. Would you give up some privacy or lose out on a Billion potential customers?

  • Boeing designs self-destructing smartphone [View news story]
    This is ridiculous. Once again a US contractor trying to justify using Android as a secure platform. Wake up, not going to happen, and regarding self destructive Android phones, lol, right. As soon as they are hacked and info extracted remotely, the phone will self destruct in a persons pocket. Smart Move, more like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    And why is such gimmickry posted on the BBRY section?

  • BlackBerry BBM Is Not WhatsApp [View article]
    BlackBerry BBM Is Not WhatsApp. Thank goodness for that, BBM is miles better. And no BBM is not going to be folded into Enterprise, and no BBM has not been defeated.

    Study what Mr.Chen has planned for BBM. its a huge positive, grlwing it in the consumer space and monetising it in the enterprise. BBM offers best security. Those that use WhatsApp that require security will dump it for the superior BBM.

    The facebook deal may sound great upfront, but we all know FB cares less about your personal info, and therefore IMO I can see users dumping WhatsApp for much better messaging solutions. BBM is the only "OverAll" solution capable of becoming the standard. As soon as people realise its the best bar none.

  • BlackBerry's BBM Beats WhatsApp To Voice [View article]
    Yes very funny. I already un-installed Skype, WhatsApp and Facebook. And canceling my FB account. BBM, Channels etc., is where its at now. The best way to communicate by far, in a secure manner.
