    re: Blackberry is not willing to change their focus

    They have completely transformed their entire business in the last 2 years. BB10 and BES10 are completely new products. They couldnt change anymore if they tried, hard to believe some people still think BB7 and BB10 are similar, bad marketing on BB's part.

    agreed, these Shorts are quietly exiting their position to avoid creating any hysteria and worsen losses, wait till the rest of the Shorts try bailing at $10+ after BB anounces Android support and bbm video and foxconn phones and bes adoption, it'll be like like yelling 'fire' in a movie theatre, grab your popcorn it could be very entertaining over the next 4 months.

    I thought they were just starting....foxconn phones with full Android support sounds like a consumer winner to me....and nothing to lose for BB.

    re: well Canadians are buying more I-phones now then Blackberry is selling at this point.

    Chen is from China I think, Heins from Germany, Foxconn manufacturing in China and more manufacturing in mexico, 'bbm money' testing in indosnesia, its a multinational company, suggesting its a pure canadian play is inaccurate, canadian sales are irrelevent in the big picture....there were 40milion bbm downloads in the first 2 months, theres not even 40million people in all of canada.

  • BlackBerry Short Interest Falls Off The Cliff [View article]
    I hope you're right George, its been a tough year waiting for this short covering, the Shorts are resilient but even they must be a little worried now.

    Cant wait for the next short interest report, they've exited fairly calmly so far, would love to see them panic for the doors after some more good news (ie voice/video BBM, BES10 subscriber growth, Android support, foxconn phone....lots of blockbusters in the pipeline for the next 4 months...cnbc may even be forced to stop ridiculing BBRY !)

  • BlackBerry: The Long-Term Picture [View article]
    re: company lost or will lose 4500+ of its employees

    BB didnt lose them, they laid them off to get costs under control. Criticizing them for running a debt in the next sentence as criticizing them for reducing costs is hypocritical....and hard to do in 2 sentences.

  • BlackBerry: The Long-Term Picture [View article]
    If a customer doesnt see a bb phone on display in a store and when asking a sales clerk to go find one they are told not to purchase one or ridiculed by the 20ish metro sexual sales clerk I'ld say customer reviews are a better indication of bb10.

  • BlackBerry's Funeral May Have To Wait. It Seems To Have Returned From The Dead [View article]
    re: 1.No application ecosystem to speak of

    BB10 isnt even 1 year old, give it some time. iOS didnt even have copy and paste functionality or attempt to have an app ecosystem in its first version.

    Rolling out BB10 was a monumentally difficult task, thats why companies like apple and google are sticking with their bloatware and will for a few more years, just like BB did, smartphone OS's are 10 year committments.

  • BlackBerry Q5 Pricing Cut - Too Little And Too Late [View article]
    Too late for a new OS? Do you seriously think 7 year old bloatware is getting better with age, iOS and Android have shown next to no innovations the last 2 years. Computers are not fine wines, they do not get better with age.

    The roles have simply reversed. You dont need to be a blackberry, android, apple, windows fanatic to see that. 7 years ago BB had the oldest OS and along came the new iOS and Android.

    BB10 hasn't even celebrated its first birthday, its farther ahead than iOS and Android was after their first 2 years. I'm looking forward to a mature 2 year old BB10 go up against 2 aging kings/dinosaurs, should be an entertaining fight, as it was 5 years ago when the roles were reversed.

    Great article. CNBC is more exciting to watch but hard on your wallet, long term investment shows are boring but good for your wallet.

  • BlackBerry's Foxconn Partnership - A Match Made In Heaven Or Hell? [View article]
    Agreed, more phones to come. Foxconn is more than a simple manufacturer too, they can push and influence sales with retailers, almost as much as a carrier.
