  • BlackBerry: Time To Throw In The Towel? [View article]
    I agree it makes no sense to walk away from BBRY before hearing the results of both the Z10 and Q10 launches. The company seems to be turning a corner with the Smartphone only playing a part in this transition.
    I see big things from BBRY especially with Heins at the helm.

  • Apple And Samsung Just Don't Have A Chance Against BlackBerry [View article]
    I believe he will upgrade to the Q10. They are probably just developing their current applications to the BB10 environment before letting him use it. :)

  • BlackBerry: Why The CEO Dismissing The Future Of Tablets Is Concerning [View article]
    I personally think they have a "Google Glass" like product or something as innovative. I think there are some exciting times ahead for BBRY..

  • Android Dead? - Part 10: Google Introduces Its Own Walled-Garden [View article]
    The difference between Android, and BlackBerry vs the IOS environment is the ability to "side-load" applications. If an application is not available in the IOS App store then it is simply not available. With both Android and BlackBerry users (in the consumer areas) have the ability to bypass the app stores and add certain applications directly to the device. There are many 3rd party app stores available.

  • Valuation Update For BlackBerry [View article]
    Thank you for your insight, but as far as the BYOD initiative I'd like to point out BlackBerrys own website and BES 10. That seems more than capable of handling the BYOD change in a more effective way than others.

  • BlackBerry 10 Feature May Run Into Big Snag [View article]
    You should probably want to know that this is an option that you choose to turn on at set-up... You must turn it on.

  • BlackBerry Stock Is A Massive Risk [View article]
    Can someone explain to me how a company in the black, can potentially be considered a failure prior to the full release of ONE of its new products?
    There is still the Q10 which MANY people and companies are waiting for.
    There are the QNX Auto products that are in the works with many auto makers.
    Finally, even after the Q10 there will be other phones. The BB10 OS has already made positive waves across the globe. BBRY doesn't have to jump to the front of the line. They only have to make a positive impact and continue to move forward with the positive momentum.

    FYI All suppliers in the US have still not released the phone. This was not do to timing on the BBRY side but on the carrier side. The phones obviously work on their networks, as people were able to use unlocked phones on their LTE networks without issue. Thee carriers just wanted to add their bloatware to the devices.

  • Why BlackBerry's Turnaround May Not Last [View article]
    When B10 upgrades the Android environment to Jelly Bean a large number of the issues go away, and more apps become available both in the app store and for Side load. Many of the current android apps simply won't run on the older Android environment. As long as there is the ability to swap batteries, then battery life is barely an issue.

  • Checks indicate U.S. consumer pre-orders for the BlackBerry Z10 (BBRY +1.1%) "have been light and well below expectations," says Detwiler Fenton's Jeff Johnston. AT&T began taking pre-orders on March 12, and Verizon 2 days later; both carriers will start actual sales within a week. He thinks FY14 BB110 sales are likely to be in the 13M-15M range, below the ~25M forecast by others. "BBRY has done a nice job with the OS; however, they need to figure out how to overcome the lack of mindshare their products have." (Goldman/Jefferies[View news story]
    AT&T did not make pre-orders available for the "Premier" business customers... I was one that was unable to order and found numerous forum posts stating the same. It's tough to properly gauge pre-orders when the largest group of existing customers are unable to pre-order...

  • BlackBerry (BBRY +8.3%) has received an order for 1M BB10 phones from one of its "established partners" (exactly whom remains a mystery). The announcement has sent shares flying higher over the final hour of trading. Also: Verizon (VZ) says it will begin selling the Z10 on March 28, and will start taking pre-orders tomorrow. As was rumored, the carrier will have exclusive access to a white version of the device. [View news story]
    Outstanding news.

  • I Still Don't Fully Understand Prem Watsa's BlackBerry Investment [View article]
    I believe the potential that he see's is in BB10 regaining the enterprise market, and in QNX Auto. Since its release I have also seen and heard more positive buzz at the consumer level both overseas and right here with building anticipation for a US release.

    With that I will stay long $BBRY

  • More on BlackBerry: Lenovo buyout speculation has picked up again thanks to remarks made by Lenovo (LNVGY.PK) CEO Yang Yuanqing to a French paper. "As for BlackBerry, the [acquisition] could possibly make sense. But first I have to analyze the market well and understand what is the exact weight of this company." CFO Wong Dai suggested in January his company is open to buying BlackBerry (BBRY +9.1%), but Lenovo later downplayed those remarks. [View news story]
    I think licencing the OS would be a good idea. I hope that there is no sale of the company though.
