Look. When you have the minds that invented a product you will have the minds that will re-invent it. That is what Apple did and that is what BBRY is doing and has done. It took 5 years for BBRY to realize they sat on their hasses and let the other inventors use their concepts and make a better mousetrap that almost destroyed them. The chinese and Japanese have been doing it for decades with American technology. Reverse engineering products and again making a better mousetrap. Look what happened as Toyota became the dominate player in the auto industry and others like Honda and Nissan etc. BBRY has the brains to make this product revolutionary and make their own better mousetrap and I believe they have done that. It is going to take a little time to get the message out but it will get out. Look at the sudden positive reviews after earnings. Anal-lists changing their tune as the cloud of doom and gloom lifted. Any word out from Can-Not-accord lately?? Nope. They are hiding from the shame of predicting 300,000 units for the quarter. Not. Standyby for the next leg up to $19-20 in short order.
more like steal. Nokiahas been around so long that everyone steals their tech. Not much longer because Nokia is starting to sue big time. That is why bbry paid 65 million to Nokia this quarter because bb10 INFRINGED on Nokia tech. Please stop taking from Nokia and acting like you came up with it.
In 1973, Theodore George “Ted” Paraskevakos patented the concepts of combining intelligence, data processing and visual display screens with telephones, outlining the now commonplace activities of banking and paying utility bills via telephone.
The first cellular phone to incorporate PDA features was an IBM prototype developed in 1992 and demonstrated that year at the COMDEX computer industry trade show. A refined version of the product was marketed to consumers on 16 August 1994 by BellSouth under the name Simon Personal Communicator. The Simon was the first device that can be properly referred to as a "smartphone", even though that term was not yet coined. In addition to its ability to make and receive cellular phone calls, Simon was also able to send and receive facsimiles, e-mails and pages through its touch screen display. Simon included many applications including an address book, calendar, appointment scheduler, calculator, world time clock, games, electronic note pad, handwritten annotations and standard and predictive touchscreen keyboards.
In 1996, Nokia released the Nokia 9000, part of the Nokia Communicator line which became their best-selling phone of that time. It was a palmtop computer-style phone combined with a PDA from HP. In early prototypes, the two devices were fixed together via a hinge in what came to be described as a clamshell design. When opened, the display of 640×200 pixels was on the inside top surface and with a physical QWERTY keyboard on the bottom. Email and text-based web browsing was provided via the GEOS V3.0 operating system
bbry did nothing.
hey the bbry product was the leader in the commercial market not THAT long ago. they've kicked but*, and pulled themselves back into the innovating comercial market once again. why else would so many spend time trying to bash em down...it shows they have something out there that is threatening. bbry has every chance in the world to secure a viable and profitable niche. it will be interesting to see if they can pull it off over the next several quarters.
