  • Did BlackBerry Sell 200,000 Passports Or A Million? [View article]
    yes, some readers here may recall that when I got a hold of the Passport on launch day I posted a mixed-review with the main issue being the keyboard took a couple of days but now even though I still cannot type as fast as I could on the Z10 (or iphone for that matter), my typing is much more accurate.

    It isn't surprising that reviewers may have had similar experiences and lowered their score for the Passport.

    Once you learn how to swipe up words on the touch-enabled keyboard and swipe left to erase, or double-tap to align the cursor when editing, it truly is a joy to use.

    The only drawback, which paradoxically is it's main strength, is the size. I believe that's a tradeoff that many professionals, and consumers, will choose to make.

    Great job by BB to bring this to market with a 30hr battery and solid build. It feel premium and I'm happy that Chen didn't kill it when he took the reigns and I know he also shares that sentiment!

  • BlackBerry Is Fermenting [View article]
    too bad you couldn't get your hands on the Z30. It's incredible.

    And BB isn't giving up on touch screen, only focusing on keyboard for corporate clients.

    BB will be releasing monster large touch screens later this year and next and they will blow your mind.

    and then some.

  • BlackBerry Now Runs Android Apps Directly [View article]
    The sample size of that article was miniscule. It means nothing.
    The volume of shares traded as BB climbed from $5.54 to $10.80 over a few weeks indicates that shorts were covering. indeed short position dropped 31 million in that time.
    Don't be so sure of yourself ;)

  • Analyze And Dump The BlackBerry REIT [View article]
    Much Ado about nothing.

    No consideration of the partnership with Foxconn stemming their hardware losses or the monopoly the company has over end-to-end security.

    The article is misguided though well-written.

  • BlackBerry: The Absolute Coolest Brand In South Africa [View article]
    South Africa, Canada, Indonesia, UAE, France, Germany and the beat goes on.

    This is enough to keep the company profitable while it wins back mindshare in the US over the next two years.

    One this is for sure, BB has legs, will travel!

  • BlackBerry: An Uphill Climb [View article]
    I live in a mid-sized Canadian city and I just got back from a little mobile phone stand in the middle of a shopping plaza and was talking to the sales guys. They told me what I have read over and over again: the have had to re-up their inventory 3 times in the past week (fair disclosure - eight BB10s each re-up) because the phones are selling fast. In the manager's words "A lot faster than when the GS3 came out" and that there were people trading in their androids, iphones and even an iPhone 5.

    If this is happening everywhere it can't help but bode well for the company's resurgence.

    I am LONG BB and CONFIDENT!!!

  • More on BlackBerry: New enterprise bundles launched [View news story]
    What we are beginning to see is the maturing of the various technologies that the math and physic wizards in Waterloo have been acqurining/developing/... finally coming together to separate the company from its competitors.

    The future is bright.

    and it is most definitely BLACK

  • Is BlackBerry Actually Going To Save $800 Million In Intellectual Property Costs? [View article]
    Let's see, off the top of my head the 'theory' of an abrupt short squeeze in the past two years alone has happened:

    Twice with NFLX
    Twice with FB
    Twice with TSLA
    Once with LNKD

    and those are only from the stocks I follow, (about 40).

    Something tells me your theory and present-day reality are two different things...
