    Bob, good posts.

    Truth is, C in C Man stands for clueless. He's unqualified to comment on Blackberry since he's never worked in the industry.

  • BlackBerry: Will It Really Be A Transitional Quarter? [View article]
    "bringing some beloved, and thus far BlackBerry 10 only, features to other platforms such as iOS, Android and Windows... likely to arrive on the various platforms by the end of the year according to BlackBerry Chief Executive John Chen"

    Reading between the lines, Blackberry is STILL playing catch up.

    MobileIron, Good, Airwatch etc. has supported these platforms for years. Yet Blackberry won't roll out to these platforms until end of year or next. I can't believe how behind they are.

    Yes John Chen and his team is readying the next round of pink slips. They may not be good at much, but they've proven to be very capable of this.

    How can they generate profit from these other businesses?

    They haven't been able to so far. I doubt they ever will, the business model is inherently low margin and profitless.

    Google almost made money on Motorola. After considering the cash they got in the deal and selling off Motorola modem etc. businesses they only lost 1 billion.

    Considering they also got thousands of patents and converted Motorola into an Android only shop, 1 billion was a steal!

    I like my Lumia 520. Only cost $40 without a contract and it runs smooth. Ditched AT&T.

    I have OneDrive, Office, calendar, work mail, other mails, maps, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, my bank app, Fidelity app, and Amazon app - everything I need to stay connected and get things done. Windows is actually a great ecosystem.

    For $40 and the chance to get out of carrier contracts while still having a great connected experience, Windows Phone was hands down the best deal in town.

    Good, Airwatch, MobileIron etc. have supported Android "for Work" years before. Containerization was invented by them, Blackberry is only now *announcing* they will catch up.

    It'll still take them another half yr to roll this out.

    They're just so behind, it's embarrassing to be an employee.

    My friends at RIM have told me more restructuring is on the way.

    Bob,

    If we read between the lines, we can take this announcement to mean Blackberry doesn't support Android devices and they are still working on it.

    Wow. They are late to the game. Airwatch and MobileIron etc. have supported Android for years now.

    I'm questioning their engineering teams ability to deliver. This isn't the first example, they also delayed and took 3+ yrs to add back support for legacy Blackberry devices (the previous server didn't support legacy Blackberry devices).

    Not a good sign at all, I'm going to sell all my shares.

  • Google Partnership Validates BlackBerry's Staying Power And Could Fuel A Buyout [View article]
    " Waterloo-based Blackberry has teamed up with to develpe a series of tools that can help users of Android phones move securely between personal use and work use ona single smartphone."

    Oh my, this is horrible, I don't want to install tools just so I can use it against Blackberry servers.

    I would much prefer Airwatch or MobileIron, it works seamlessly.

  • Google Intensifies Its Android One Campaign [View article]
    How much do they make off mobile ads in these developing countries?

    It is already dominated by Android phones made by Samsung and LG where Google's ads are delivered and they can collect user activity data. So it's very doubtful they can sell more ads etc. than they are already doing so right now.

    Android One won't significantly prevent people that want an iPhone and can afford one from getting one.

    Now that they have no need of them, Google is killing their first and most long-standing partners Samsung and LG by providing competitors with competing software.
