  • It's Time To Bet On BlackBerry [View article]
    By the time BB10 hits the shelves in the USA it will have more apps than MS phones, and they had a 2 year headstart.....also, 2700 north american corporations signed up for Blackberry 10 Ready program, enterprise support looks amazing. MS will do alright in 4th place, BB is a solid 3rd and may challenge for 2nd in a year or two as Apple is well past its prime.

  • Nothing But Empty Promises From This Former Mobile Giant? [View article]
    re:there are conflicting accounts as to whether the device is doing well or poorly

    The link you provided for 'poorly' above references analysts opinions based on no sales figures. Is this the kind of research you base investment decisions upon? That research is almost as bad as Detwiler Fenton's claims of returns exceeding sales...whoops, I didnt see you actually quoted their research too LMAO, didn't Verizon fully trash their credibility?..gimme a break, start quoting some credible sources for analysis please, leave the trash to lazy gossip rags like Forbes, SA readers are not that gullible.

  • BlackBerry's Stock Price Manipulated [View article]
    Thanks for calling out Pacific Crerst and Dewilor Felton out. They are utterely corrupt and most people following Blackberry no that.

    I can't blame them for releasing misleading reports though, they are successful half the time (which is surpising considering they've been doing it for a year), there are no reprocussions for spreading false rumors and the media are all too willing to fan the flames.

    As long as the media keep printing reports from corrupt analysts with no credibility we can expect this to happen a few times a month with Blackberry.

  • Did BlackBerry Sell 9 Million Too Few Z10 Smart Phones? [View article]
    re: z10 is not reliable, QNX is a buggy OS

    QNX is the most reliable OS, it is used in nuclear power plants and NASA. MS, Android and iOS are not used in these places because they are too unreliable.

    Either you're nuts or I am.

  • BlackBerry: Dual-Screen Phone And Battlefield For Analysts [View article]
    hilarious, although I consider meterologists to be far more credible than Canaccord and probably shouldnt be mentioned in the same breath. At least they do research and analysis to reach a consclusion, I guess thats why Canaccord analysts didnt make it as meterologists...or business analysts for that matter, they should try fortune telling instead.

  • Major U.K. Outlets Hike BlackBerry Z10 Price Above iPhone 5, Black Market Thriving [View article]
    Thank you for the article Mike, this is by far the best researched article published on Blackberry's sales since launch.

    Great job calling out the clowns with their deceptive bear analysis too, your analysis is far more credible than anything coming out of the USA, these thinly veiled market manipulators need to be exposed to restore some credibillty in Wallstreet. We should reduce funding for the SEC and send that money your way instead.

  • Why Investors Should Consider Selling The Rally In RIM Shares Now [View article]
    90% of analysts missed the last 200% stock gain on RIMM, why listen to them now?

    They are either incompetent or unethically trying to cover their short positions by advising people to do the opposite of what they truly believe

  • BlackBerry (BBRY -2.8%) slumps after S&P's James Moorman cuts his FY13-15 estimates while reiterating a Sell. He's worried about the fact Sprint (not the most enterprise-focused U.S. carrier) isn't supporting the Z10, and about the impact of rival spring/summer phone launches. Yesterday, HTC announced the One, its new flagship Android model, and Samsung will reportedly announce the Galaxy S IV on March 14. BlackBerry's newfound volatility has led its beta to spike to 1.65. (yesterday[View news story]
    They have over 300 carriers supporting them internationally, have the major USA carriers on board and signed up 2700 north american corporations for their Blackberry Ready 10 program.....and this analyst omits these facts and rates it a Sell?

    Lets face it, half the analysts are corrupt market manipulators covering their Shorts or drumming up fear so they can by BBRY on the cheap....these analysts have no credibility or dignity.

  • BlackBerry Doing The Little Things Right [View article]
    re: allowing Blackberry to get exposure each and every week.

    Agreed. Every week the phone comes out in a new country and every week record sales are reported from the last country it was released in, the free press it gets is fantastic

    On top of that they have more phones and tablets coming on a regular basis nearly every month or two.

    ...and then comes the apps and enterprise software announcements every week or two, it will be non-stop good news for all of 2013.

    The timing couldn't be better with Apple waning in popularity.

  • Bye-Bye BlackBerry: What Will Make BB10 Fail [View article]
    Poor Launch:

    They've opened in 3 countries and are having record sales in those 3 countries. Interpreting that as 'poor' lacks any credible arguement

    Underwhelming OS

    It is a critcally acclaimed OS. Thousands have reviewed it and the response is overwhelmingly favorable. On this point either you are crazy or I am.

    No Apps

    They will pass 100k apps before its even hits the shelves in the USA. They will also pass Microsoft by then, who had a 2 year head start. How many different Android and iOS apps have been downloaded in the last 6 months, my guess is less than 100k? Half are crap that has been confirmed no one downloads, many are outdated and no longer relavent and of course many are duplicates ie 15k solitaire app, 1000 farting apps. That leaves about 100k useful apps for iOS and Android, similar to Blackberry

    Lack of Enterprise Usage

    2700 north american corporations have signed up for ther Blackberry 10 Ready program, that is a remarkable level of enterprise interest.

    You're consistent Vlad, big bias on Blackberry on no credible analysis to support your claims. Too bad SA publishes this blackbery bashing rubbish, it ruins their credibility too. As usual the Comments section is more informative...

  • RIM Uses Lenovo Hype To Prevent Rollover [View article]
    re: but clever analysts are starting to catch on to the trick

    Thats the funniest statement I've read all week, thanks for the laugh.

    Analysts have been pitifully wrong on RIMM, missing the last 200% climb, Shorting RIMM during this time and desperately clinging to Apple stock.

    A drunken monkey throwing darts at a board with the word 'buy' 'sell' 'hold' on it would provide more accurate and incitful analysis of RIMM than these 'clever analcysts'.

    They are either incompently analyzing RIMM or deliberately trying to bash the stock down to cover their foolish short bets.

    re: The hype cycle

    It's not 'hype' when thousands of tech savy users have tried the product out and universally say its better than iPhone, Android and Microsoft, its a simple fact, everyone who's gotten their hands on BB10 love it and thats why the stock is taking off. If this phone was anything less than spectacular they would have been severly harsh on BB10.

  • BlackBerry 10 Will Flop. Then What? [View article]
    Not a very convincing case for a flop, backwards looking analysis on the verge of releasing the most acclaimed smartphone OS in 5 years?!

    The upcoming short squeeze cover should be highly entertaining to watch and participate in....nothing funnier than watching bean counters try to analyze new technology prospects

  • Nothing But Empty Promises From This Former Mobile Giant? [View article]
    Too bad authors like Eric Savitz (formerly of Forbes) couldn't be held accountable for publishing corrupt analysts opinions ad nauseum (I'm not calling it research and analysis..).

    I guess our only recourse is to stop visiting these biased and lazy news outlets and stick with SA ! Even this terrible article is a good read thanks to the reader comments, they often greatly exceed the usefulness of the originating article and make it worthwhile visiting.

  • 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]
    Can Pacific Crest analysts James Faucette provide the details of his analysis? Or will he pull a Detwiler Fenton, making outrageous claims and refusing to provide any data to support their claims?

    Why do journalist copy, paste and publish these obviously bogus analysis without questioning their methods and motives? Are these same journalists incompetent or 'in on it'? soon after the Detwiler Fenton report..these 'analysts' sure are brazen, can't blame them seeing as the media keep printing their deceitful pieces.

  • BlackBerry Catches A Break: What's Driving The Stock [View article]
    re: BlackBerry 10 Coming To America

    USA is a stagnant and saturated market. Z10 just went on sale in Indonesia, they will probably overtake the USA for BB sales in 1 year, these growth markets are BB's strengths.
