  • BlackBerry "savior" device hits the ground and dies [View news story]
    Articles like this are having the desired effect - even though the BB10 product is excellent ,years of negative reporting have been convincing the consumer that blackberry won't be around long enough to support their product purchase - in spite of blackberry increasing their cash position to over 3B dollars. It would be interesting to see who is pulling the strings - consumers don't gain if blackberry disappears....

  • BlackBerry: Time For Longs To Wave The White Flag? [View article]
    I guess if you keep saying the same thing for years it's possible to convince some people that your right - Blackberry has a great new product why do some people think its a better world if they just give up and let apple and android rule the world without any interference.
    Samsung and Apple are also not meeting expectations so I guess we should hand out some more white flags....

  • Throwing In The Towel On My BlackBerry Shares [View article]
    well this piece of click bait works - congratulations everyone wants to educate someone who seems completely lost. Have to say I've had the opposite experience - coming from iphone I found the system to be very powerful,fast and solid. Most of your complaints are simple software updates or just user ignorance- hard to believe you stuck with blackberry till now and just when they release an incredible product you decide to bail - keep your 9900 if you like it better but I can't believe that on balance you really can't see the massive improvement BB10 is - and here's the kicker -it gets better with every update!!

  • BlackBerry (BBRY -0.4%) is downgraded to Underperform at Exane BNP, which says its profit pools are drying up. While news flow around the BB10 likely will remain the primary driver for the shares in the short-term, the firm says BBRY's long-term profitability prospects hinge essentially on the longevity of its service revenues, which are "unsustainable." [View news story]
    Just another hack analyst paid to twist the truth to suit their masters. It's important to use these dips as a chance to load up more stocks before the US Q10 release and the next earnings report. It will be a bumpy ride but in a few years from now these clowns will be working at McDs (not at the casher but wiping tables)

  • Microsoft Finally Gets How To Grow Windows Phone [View article]
    I'm not sure the picture is quite a rosy as presented here - at the last chair holders meeting the sentiment was largely for dropping WP OS and joining the droid world. When compared to the new Blackberry 10 OS it is no match. With "Docs to Go" a native app baked into the system it can edit any windows office docs making the Windows phone unnecessary. After years of cursing at my Windows computers the last thing I want is another microsoft product. With Blackberry apps well over 120K (and growing at a rate 2X faster than WP8 ) and several more phones/ phablets in the pipeline why wouldn't you go with the most secure and reliable OS available.

  • Are Android Apps Coming To Your BlackBerry? It Seems Likely [View article]
    It was only a matter of time before the app problem was solved. With the z10 having similar screen size to many android devices the apps will run great. Best part is you can do both - over time people will find the bb10 is superior and android will try to port blackberry apps to its phones. The circle is complete. Those who bought shares now in great numbers will retire wealthy those who shorted will receive social assistance. In the meantime expect a lot of nasty stories from short analysts that will be copied without question by the mass media.

  • BlackBerry: Too Late To Openness [View article]
    Even now some people are not sure the decision to open up BBM is in Blackberry's interest. I see it as a chance to increase market visibility for blackberry. Before this point it (BBM) could only be used with other BB users forcing those without the phone to use SMS or some app that was not as good as BBM. As more iphone/android users start to use BBM as well as the video and screen share features unique to blackberry this be an opportunity to win back "hearts and minds" that will see the New BB10 as a player in this market ,which over time will expand the Blackberry empire. The inflammatory remarks " when it began its unchecked fall towards zero" is a cheap way to get attention and reduces the value of this article - which already lacks focus on the issue in question.

  • Apple's Magic Is Broken [View article]
    Apple's biggest problem is lack of innovation in the past year. The iOS was great 7 years ago but has seen very little improvement since. Samsung is great at copying ideas that others come up with and their latest phone is full of gimmicks that work great in tv commercials but are buggy and drain the massive battery in real life (and wind up being turned off). I dropped my iphone earlier this year after trying the Blackberry Z10. BB10 is efficient and secure and with the best UI available will be the one apple should watch in the next year. If apple was smart they would use some of their cash to try to buy blackberry - the combination would make for an amazing product.

  • Apple's Magic Is Broken [View article]
    Apple biggest issue is lack of innovation in the last year. Samsung S4 is loaded with half baked features that drain the battery and have to be turned off to not be annoying. I dumped my Iphone after trying the new Blackberry Z10 back in Feb - it was clear how far advanced this OS was (and this was only ver 1.0) with the rapid release of updates and apps this platform is the one to watch in the next year.

  • BlackBerry Week In Review: Bears Take An Unsuccessful Swipe [View article]
    As bear analysts report the same lies over and over the effect on the market will wain .you can only cry wolf so many times before the villagers ignore you. The new hardware is top notch and as people use it word will get out that BlackBerry is back. I wouldn't rule out the Z10 either - I left apple for it and those who want a full screen experience will need to have this option for blackberry to claw back market share.

  • Growth For Windows Phone In The U.S. Accelerates [View article]
    I'm sure you think you thought this article thru but to say " with blackberry out of the way" shows a level of bias that can only be matched by some of the hack analysts that are currently under investigation by the SEC for making other unsubstantiated statements.
    You may want to give it a year before making any more ridiculous statements - it makes the rest of your blurb not worthy of my time.

  • 2013 "production expectations" for the Z10 (BBRY -1.2%) have been trimmed by 4M-6M units, believes Wedge Partners' Brian Blair, who has been bearish on BlackBerry for years. He adds U.S. Z10 launches " have provided no evidence of meaningful sell-through," and is forecasting <10M 2013 BB10 shipments vs. Street estimates of 20M+. Meanwhile, Pac Crest's James Faucette (previous) believes U.S., U.K., and Canadian Z10 inventories are too high, and that production cuts are a matter of time. Also: BlackBerry says the Q10 is expected to sell for a subsidized $249 in the U.S., $50 more than the 16GB iPhone 5. [View news story]
    If they cry "wolf" every time the shorts are getting squeezed one day no will believe these clowns. I "believe" these analysts are bought and paid for. absolutely no integrity.

  • Nothing But Empty Promises From This Former Mobile Giant? [View article]
    Ok so you hate Blackberry and if it goes up shorting it won't won't be any fun. You lost me when you used the bogus returns story as part of your argument.
    In case you haven't been following the stock it was at $6 when it looked like BB10 would never make it to market - we are past that and the product has been well received by techies and the public ( those that have not been scared off by articles like this).
    I switched from iphone to a Z10 and have been impressed by the OS and unique features that blackberry has developed.
    This company used to trade well above $100 and given the rapid expansion of the smartphone industry they have a good chance to do very well even if they sell a small fraction of what apple and android do.

  • After January's long-awaited touchscreen rollout, BlackBerry (BBRY) is ready for this year's Act Two: the physically keyboarded Q10, which might arrive in the U.K. Friday. The firm faced criticism by loyalists over its decision to release the touch-screen Z10 first (as well as reports of mass returns). But can the Q10 sell enough to loyal keyboarders and upgraders to make a splash in a consistently shrinking side of the market? [View news story]
    I realize telling the whole story won't get you as much attention - but really to throw the BS " returns" story in is just cheap - if it continues i will have to go elsewhere for info.
