Because there was a time not long ago that AAPL was stated as the only choice for the future, by many. Without understanding the dynamics of what made them great in the first place. Now it is laughable.
And so how is that blackberrys fault, sounds like a #$%$ display and sales methods from best buy, which seems to be going the way of circuit city. Oh Well. haha.
This is the same company of analysts that shorted the real estate market and caused the largest crash in PE in the history of the stock market, and we are STILL listening to them ?
Remember the large part of the owners of blackberries are business ( dont have the numbers here ), so if they are stodgy about it, meaning waiting until the Qwerty comes out then we wont see growth until then. In this case even though I find it hard to believe business might be leading the consumer to avoid it until the next release. Great to hear that its meeting expectations though. I want one but dont want the data plan rates , cut those in half and bam I am a buyer.
Sign me up for that ghetto if everyone speaks as eloquently and well informed as Jon does. We would be rich in no time.
GM compression is based on the assumption that there is not and there will not be a growing acceptance of this product, and with the QWERTY release. time will tell there. Its a safer bet than apple in my view. No such thing as "entrenched competitors" just like there is not such thing as your last golf swing effecting your next if you are good at it. There has never been a need for loyalty in electronics purchases, NEVER EVER. Comparing to Nokia a prime example of not seeing the market well.
What is likely happening is an attempt almost on a government level of cornering and controlling markets for domestic concerns and/or just to prove that "you can do that". Freedom of choice and decisions in purchases has always won out here unless of course all of our money has gone to the wrong hands. ( which is always possible ).
Services and applications are constantly being hammered here whereas this phones reputation is for ethics in its security of phone and info handling far beyond that of others. Lets hold this post to the 63 to 65 M subscribers by year end. The monikers and abbreviations and symbols smacks of old gov designs gone wrong and defunct. LOL.
I get the feeling that these stock sales and any sales at all are being controlled by congress or political wonks, as well as an insider group on boards, in wall street and washington all in cahoots to determine the winners and losers on our end as the investors. Which of course is the exact opposite of the design and intention of the markets anything but free, true, fair and just. Their attitude probably is who is going to fire us ?
And to think I was hoping for a penny profit, subscribers is cyclical cant go by that. Not sure what it does to share price but looks good.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Right its doubtful that RIMM has huge share price and EPS expectations otherwise there would have been a much larger effort for a product launch. Most likely they prefer to hang onto their business customers and if it grows in the individual category fine, probably awaiting the QWERTY sales results when it is released. Dont think they have ever been a big fan fare company. The value resides in its low relative share price and high short shares percentage though.
Something seems a little apple slanted in the recent coverages. Is it really one phone or the other ?
Palm PDA delivery crashes near the island of clipperton off the mexico coast. It has floated ashore and the crabs and gulls are now getting more educated, somehow they figured out how to charge them with solar power. Soon there will be a new market in bird and crab food large enough for US consumption.
Well the beauty of these devices is that you cant market them in a one statement blurb, it takes the power of the internet and the user experience as well as deep knowledge to really get an understanding of products as involved as these. The better we are at describing them the better off the consumer is at being a good shopper and actually achieving what they set out to with buying such a product. If it was as simple as a pencil a picture alone would do. That was what I found wrong with the ancient history of apples ad campaigns colorful and joyous but what am I buying never got answered.
Ahh ok I was hoping you would say the OS was designed better and more efficiently. Good I can agree there then. I have not bought held or owned an Blackberry so I am just having some fun posting. No test or preorder or marketing budgets here. I might try and read up on the OS QNX now that you mention it though thanks for the heads up.
Earnings 9 days away, all I ask is for an EPS of .01 or better IE positive instead of negative. I can imagine a large short squeeze if that were to happen. Probably wishful thinking but thats how they come true.
I did my due diligence on the specifications of the Z10, I have heard outstanding ratings on it as well, I am just rehashing how it got down here, not where its going. But the specs show it about equal from your findings what makes it stand out ?
