As per shortretard dogeater218:
Kaching Kaching Kaching...$$$$$
And to think no money outlay to manufacture... partnership deal..
The release of the BlackBerry Passport enhances BlackBerry's overall communications offerings for all users. As BBM and BBM Video continue to go cross-platform; and BBM for the Windows Desktop is in the roadmap, the value of BlackBerry's products and services becomes valuable over time.
Sounds like they're already in bed...
Apple seems desperately looking for direction... like a chicken with its head cut off.
It's lips are turning blue.
Search: Gartner Predicts by 2017, Half of Employers will Require Employees to Supply Their Own Device for Work Purposes....
And apple will be leading the pack.. with IBM.
Not to worry... IBM will take care of that... can't get more security than IBM...
And to thin that MyLink infotainment system is run through Blackberry's QNX OS..
Great for Blackberry.. I think it licenses it.
Well.. it is the best phone in America.. maybe the reason why Americans can't get the Z30 like the rest.
You can only order one from Verizon.. And that ain't all great.
Also, Americans are not very smart educated compared to the euros, Indians, Canadians, Chinese, etc.. and the BB10 OS has a learning curve.. and oh!my god! when the new phone (Z10) was first released, it had no button.. confused the hell out of the American market.
Now everyone wants NO button.. except some old style BB keyboard lovers, who've replaced tablets for larger screen phones.. (Classic)
as per my crystal ball report..
They've shipped 2 million and have 1.8 million confirmed sold..
Foxcon has planed building 7 million units to for the country by country releases..
They also have confirmed contracts for their BES12 security servers with balance for all the major OS's and at last report 300K balance licenses have been reserved by enterprise..
The release of the classic (the square one) built for enterprise with specific features for type of enterprise, health, banking, military, aerospace, etc. will create a new niche app industry geared to developing type specific enterprise apps.
The magic of all this integration is Blackberry's secure QNX operating system, which also runs Apples carinfo app.
But that's my crystal ball. Good luck!
They gave away poor Steve's soul to his other nemesis...Looking for resurrection.
Poor apple.. It's lips are turning blue..
The king is dead... long live the King.
It'll take 3 years for them to reach the security of QNX today...
Meanwhile they have nothing but vaporware and untested products.
in the world of internet of things.. they are in the geriatric section...
Truth may hurt.. but it will set you free... Go long and prosper.
It seems a lot of partnerships and mergers going on... msft/nokia, Google/samsung, and they all want in where Blackberry is firmly entrenched...
so... BBRY/ and ???
It's already leading with the best security (QNX) in health, Auto communications, NASA... etc..
I've heard rumors... Sony, Xerox,
At the moment the only one serving with real products to consumer and enterprise, such as (QNX) secured instant messaging and so much more is ....
You know it!
Are you saying this may be a smoke screen for the coming pain...
Why would you not save this release with positive numbers and pull a double whamy...
IBM is no longer Big Blue of the old days.. aging dinosaurs with huge retirement plans.. where the blood. Nada!
Me thinks Cook is cooked and grabbing for straws.. 65% of his revenue is phones and tablets.. and the numbers will show, that growth is history..
Good luck on earnings longs..
New kid on the block.. can't touch it..
you have no clue.. probably have no idea that apple play runs on QNX..
You have any idea what QNX is and does... IBM is a dinosaur server company joining a dinosaur toy company..
Good Luck Buba!..
