  • Is BlackBerry On The Cusp Of A Turnaround? [View article]
    @KIA

    If I'm not mistaken, your link refers to Blackberry owners. I was thinking more in terms of enterprise space. I don't think John Doe and Boeing call the same help line.

  • Is BlackBerry On The Cusp Of A Turnaround? [View article]
    @KIA

    I might be wrong (I'm sure some smart person here will clarify), but I thought I read somewhere that Blackberry is moving away from fee-based to subscription-based charges; meaning that Blackberry is looking to lock in clients to service contracts and not just waiting around till the client picks up the phone and asks for help and then charge them just for that incident.

    Perhaps that incident-based support ends when Blackberry starts charging for BES12. That's the leverage Blackberry has in convincing trial licensees to convert fully to the paid model.

    And please give me the names of those companies that jump out of planes without parachutes. I'm not entrusting my business to those folks.

    It is beyond the edge of practicality to think that a firm would entrust its operations to a platform perpetually without subscribing to the technical services needed to ensure smooth execution of its daily operations. Imagine what work would be like if you couldn't reach out to the help desk because you're having problems with some web-based application. Even buildings constructed with sprinkler systems and fire-retardant materials still have smoke alarms.

  • BlackBerry: The Drowning Man Of Mobile [View article]
    @DWBowers

    I had to mark this post for posterity. I remember when Marcap predicted that Blackberry would disappear by the end of 2013. Since that prediction, the poor chap hasn't been seen on SA.

  • Relax, BlackBerry Earnings Were Just Fine [View article]
    @alpha_69

    You're so right. I was very pleased with the way the stock showed strength as it recovered most of its losses by end of trading day. Blackberry achieved profitability last quarter. Next goal is to continue the winning streak.

    Chen meets his deadlines, unlike Heins, so the "Heins 2.0" tag is totally inaccurate.

  • BlackBerry to launch genome browser [View news story]
    Great development to see Blackberry team up with the Elon Musk of the healthcare industry, Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong.

    The smartest of the smart seek out Blackberry (e.g. German govt, Dr. Soon-Shiong).

    In since 10.

    Why would Samsung partner with a company supposedly on the verge of bankruptcy? Need more articles discussing that development. Bashers probably will say that nobody buys Samsung phones anymore.
