How can you write down inventory that is still sitting in your warehouse...
It's not worth zero. It does not perish like lettuce and tomatoes..
This is a accounting trick used for a variety of reasons..
And that is the billion $ question.. What is the reason.
That must be the smell that's stuck with the report.. Bad smell.
But you have a point. It's not like the phones are to be burned..
You'd think anal_ists would have picked up on that. But the analyst crowd is so negative on Bbry, they're blinded.
Should be an interesting Monday, let's see if your point will see daylight..
It's actually 25 million shres.. They report it twice.. Once for the seller and once for the buyer..
So really there isn't a lot of volume.. There's still over 100 million shares short out there..
I feel as there is something going on with the company that, will hopefully make sense of the info release on Friday.
I've received 3 upgrades in the last week.. One for my PlayBook, and 2 for my z10.. It's business as usual..
1 billion/ 300 = 2000,000.
that's 2 million phones.. paid for.
What do you do with such a huge amount of the best phones in the world..
Let's discount them like the playbook.. What else can you do. Carriers will take for the 300 and pass it along.
so much for the hardware business..
So.. vans full of homeless hired to sleep outside apple store in South california ..
Now.. that's how you create demand.. listening Thor.
Something screwy going on with bbry.. bad smell.
But why such a huge interest on BBM.. It's just a messaging app.
Any different than the other 10..
Could BBRY become a "INTERNET COMPANY"
Goodness.. What a huge turn around.
(itunes not counted)
Would that not have made more sense and value for bbry.
Up until this year no one considered BBM as an added value social media company
Thx for the google link but, What I'm asking is, how would this messaging system benefit the bottom line.
BBM has been around on Rimm phones for ever..
However.. if they use a Qnx blackberry, they get hired right away. It's a leaders choice. Followers use old technology.
