    I think the android move is to get people to use BB again and all the services while BB10 matures as it is still in its infancy phase compared to the competitors.

    All in all, thank you for the dip today.

  • Now Is The Time To Buy Gilead Sciences, Inc. [View article]
    Agreed at 103 but it is still below the 30 and 100 day MA so technically still a buy at 109.

  • BlackBerry's Venice Android phone reportedly launching in November [View news story]
    BB Fan here still sporting a Bold and Curve. I liked BB10 and was pumped but i found it anti climactic when it came to using it. Business and personal profiles were nice but combersome at times. The interface was ok and it locked me out several times. Copy/paste drove me nuts half the time which was maybe due to precision. That said it's still a good OS and while it's in its infancy they should not abandon it, in fact management should put it in Skunk works mode and just let a few passionate people hone it while adapting it to the next tech. it could be the next silver bullet for sure, the potential is there.

  • The German Government Might Give An Unexpected Boost To BlackBerry [View article]
    Great article George,

    The main issue i have with this encrypted device when they say that no foreign intel agency has broken the encryption.

    "So far, no foreign intelligence agency has succeeded in breaking the encryption on the phones, the German Interior Ministry claims."

    1st, they would never actually tell them if they did break it in the 1st place.

    2nd, the five-eyes has far more collective crypto experience and processing power to break this in my opinion.

  • BlackBerry Execs Costing Investors Billions [View article]
    Thorsten did a LOT of damage and most of it you just cannot reverse. He cared less about the shareholder which is why i pulled out at the end of June and never looked back. Perhaps now i might hop back on board

  • BlackBerry Heading Below $7 Per Share Again [View article]
    It's never a win for the shareholders when the CEO is a bear. He does not care about the share price and actually was selling all his shares. Source=

  • More on BlackBerry's (BBRY +2.7%) annual meeting: Thorsten Heins responded to a question about exploring licensing deals by saying BlackBerry will "pursue every opportunity to create value for shareholders." But he also insisted BlackBerry "must create value" before strategic options are considered. Heins disagreed with a shareholder who called the U.S. Z10 launch "a disaster," and blamed disappointing sales on partner efforts (previous). "I talked to staff at many points of sales and they were inadequately trained or not trained at all … marketing materials were missing." [View news story]

  • Pictures of BlackBerry's (BBRY) next Bold phone, the 9720, have leaked. The phone will run on BB7 rather than BB10, and appears to back up the company's promise to launch BB7 phones in order to address lower price points. BlackBerry received an upgrade today from Canada's Desjardins Group, and a bullish coverage launch from ACI Research, but shares nonetheless closed unchanged. [View news story]
    I sure hope this is the last of BB7 devices and i totally get why they are releasing it. In 1-2 years time they should offer an upgrade for very reduced cost to move them to the new platform or lose support to key platforms such as BBM. The quicker BB gets this message out the better for them because if they do not set the tone and let the market dictate, they will be in for a wild ride. Win the customer back is what they need to do, then the troves will follow. Perhaps this will make it attractive at 8 or 9 again

  • I Am Joining The Bears In The BlackBerry Bush [View article]
    I expected a little tiny increase and not these news. Good call by the bears. Frankly i think people are either in a long term contracts on other devices and/or saving for a summer vacation.

    My strategy was to ride it for another 2 quarters past this one because it takes time to turn the tide of utter sludge the former management has left.

    I closed 2/3 of my position on BB at a loss following the attitude of Thorsten. As a shareholder, my confidence in him has almost entirely evaporated.

    Not the birthday present i was hoping for and i am glad that i was in the right frame of mind all along as a newbie. It was money i was prepared to lose.

    Good luck to all the longs and BB
