  • BlackBerry: Z10 Is Not Enough [View article]
    Relax everyone. A BB smartphone is not a toy. It's for business minded people who want security and stealth. You won't see lineups at stores and kids will not be buying BB's. The other smartphones cater to a different user group. So stop comparing sales volumes of BB's to Apple and others. They are meaningless. BB will do just fine. Most store personnel still are not up to speed and do not expect huge line ups of eager beavers wanting a BB. I've been in several stores and seen this for myself. The shares will climb slowly as more sales are made. I'm getting more messages from friends that say they are using the new phone. Stop the negative crap. Get with BB.

    BB is a business phone not a toy as is iPhone and others. You won't see people lines up to buy a BB. Their companies will buy them for their employees. Yes, BB has lost some clients, but was it due to frustration and delays in the launching of BB's newest phones? Who knows. Their earnings at this stage mean little to the share price. Time will tell us if BB's phones gain a resurgence in new customers and the return of old clients. Never mind the nay Sayers. They have a personal interest to defend. It is early in the game. Store fronts do not know the product and how it compares to other smart phones. Once they get on side, and if they like their BB, like buying a new car, they will tell everyone and more sales will be made. Better advertising by BB will motivate buyers and sellers to talk to each other.

  • BlackBerry Z10 U.K. Pricing Remains At A Premium, Despite Misleading Analyst Report [View article]
    I don't know who to believe. Some reports are self serving. I can't wait to get my hands on one in the USA. Security is uppermost in my mind, not the number of apps I can download. BB is my business phone, apple my play phone.

    You cannot be too carefull managing a large company like CLT. What does the future hold? Are times changing? You bet ya they are. With landlines going the way of the doo- doo bird, one has to wonder where new revenues will come from for companies like CLT.
