  • BlackBerry: Make Certicom Patents Licensing More Affordable [View article]
    BBM is mostly popular in emerging markets and where BB already has a stronghold (or what's left of it....)

    So it is in these markets that carriers could indeed be giving BBM a hard look to see about teaming up in a partnership.

    you say they are not compelling but offer no reasons why not...

    and yet the carriers are losing $$$ with SMS hand over fist....

  • Update: Plug Power's Massive Growth Numbers Have Augmented Our Bull Case [View article]
    that is the rationale why i'm long Ballard and not Plug. Ballard has the IP so they will be able to licence the technology to the giants and collect a royalty. In fact the CEO said that this is the exact strategy.

    LONG BLDP

    so the truth was undeniable: PLUG needed BLDP's expertise. One more boost to Ballard's portfolio with many more to come.

    I'm not concerned with Apple and how many phones it sells. It is doing well at present based on its past merits even though their product is quickly becoming an inferior one.

    Conversely BlackBerry is also performing, in the public's eye, based on its past non-merits and as such has performed poorly.

    But time changes things and now BlackBerry is able to develop and deliver a superior device to market with a maturing OS that is grabbing the attention of tekkies. Pouge loves the device as does Kevin Michaluk both of whom had soured on BlackBerry

    Not only do they love it but so does everyone who owns one so far. This is a very good sign. The first-adopters are thrilled with the passport and for good reason. It's a beast. I charge it once every two days or so and never think about power consumption. It's 3G of Ram make it lightning quick. The wide screen has made it nearly impossible to go back to using the Z10 which i still have kicking around.

    There are some tradeoffs. After two weeks i still can't nearly as fast as i could on glass but I'm more accurate. It is big and I'm still noticing that. but I have come to terms with these tradeoffs and the pros greatly outweigh the cons.

    Unlike what turned out to be false initial hype when the Z10 was released i actually believe sales of the passport will be strong. Very strong and sustained and will power BlackBerry to profitability for a good long while along with the Classic.

    I'm holding my shares, which form most of my net worth, for the foreseeable future.

    I haven't even mentioned the bullishness of BES12, eBBM, and QNX. I think hardware sales alone will power the company way above current valuation.
