Manufacture controls the design? All those "slave" laborers will control the smartphone market!
Just one month ago!
That is why BBRY is irrelevant!
BlackBerry also took the dubious award for being the only major operating system to experience a sales decline in an otherwise record year.
That includes business customers! Ouch!
Why is that?
Prior to and including introduction of Apple devices, why no profits from QNX?
Predictions by market researchers: About 76 Million new cars will be sold globally in 2014! Thats even worse news than before for BB since they will not get any profits! Ouch squared!
70 million cars sold globally in 2013! So why no profits? Your case is even worse for BB. If they can't make profits on that number, then there are none there for BB! OUCH!
How terrible are the BBM activations? Will BB tell us during this upcoming losses report? Why a 99.99% drop in BBM Global activation rates! Nobody wants the service! BBM activation numbers on Android and iOS at end of 2014 Q1:
- 1st 24hrs, 10M activations = 417,000/hr
- 168 hrs later, 10M activations = 60,000/hr = 86% activation rate drop
- 1008 hrs later, 20M activations = 10,000/hr = 98% activation rate drop
- 1416 hrs later, 5M activations (Jan, Feb) = 3,500/hr = 99.99% activation rate drop
BBRY is not up at least 25% alone on this zdnet article because there is nothing there! QNX is not a profit generator!
