I Feel BlackBerry IS "Dead...
Before I share my opinion let me start by saying I LOVE BlackBerry, LOVE my Z10 and LOVE BlackBerry 10 BUT realistically I can't keep hoping on BlackBerry pulling through as a whole. BBM Cross platform is a big plus but as for the handset and os without the "big" apps I don't see BlackBerry pulling through. I mean now what are the incentives for those "haters" to get a BlackBerry? BBM, which is now cross platform? Wicked OS, which to most lacks the apps most people want?
It's such a shame as I truly believe with just the apps alone BlackBerry will once again become a strong force!
Still LOVE you though BlackBerry! )

I love that every thread like this one starts with the same phrase "Let me start by saying I love BlackBerry." Then, if the paradigm holds true, there will be a laundry list of BlackBerry devices said person had at one time. Then, finally, after the potatoes are served, the real meat of the post comes to the forefront -- The Death of BlackBerry! The horror. The horror. Well done."It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book." NietzscheThanked by 14:

If you love your phone and hate BlackBerry then probably you should be an author at BGR.. or other troll news agencies.
That's what you must do... else love BlackBerry and have faith in these guys... They have worked hard to get us 10.2. They will bring us new things that will enhance our experience..
That's all I have to say!

Even if BB does not sell another fone starting frow now, they would not be dead. The apps are rolling in nicely now, admittedly not the five top ones, but they will come. Isn't there a thread for the doom and gloom, negative, BB bashers and nay sayers?
So sorry, not dead or close. Sorted!
So in response to your post its not a horror horror post was merely expressing my view!
Oh i wish i could! if only we could turn around the negative publicity but not alone even blackberry fail to capitalise on the positive publicity?!
As many have said post in post out blackberry have not been great on marketing! I have faith but just felt alittle disheartened so right or wrong thought to share (

If you love BlackBerry, then stop writing those headlines. Self fulfilling prophecy is a weapon and you are aiming at BlackBerry.
Thank you for your kind attention.

There is bound to be a lot of unsettled users at the moment....media articles don't help. So there will be people asking questions, wondering what the future will be, wondering which direction BlackBerry will be going in.
Hopefully after the 4th November things might become clearer, but until then there will be genuine posts asking Crackberry users opinions in amongst the trolls.
The trick is to not jump on the genuine ones.....

If bb don't release any further phones (deep down i'd be happy- love my z10) but as long as they continue improving the OS would be happy. Guess they will since its being pushed more for "business" but again sorry for the "negativity" just thought to share.
MODERATOR PLEASE CLOSE THREAT. My intention was to read a reply/posts giving hope for the future rather than having to "defend" my thread and view to Blackberry "lovers" as i have been regularly doing with Blackberry "haters". Thanks

To the OP.
These people only want to hear good things and never negative. It is like a club of people feeding on each other with the giddyness of Blackberrydom. They will bask Seeking Alpha if they report something bad and yet sing praises to Seeking Alpha when they say something positive.
Yep, blame it on the shorts and the mean negative press but never on the real culprit and that would be Blackberry and it's management!

Perception and attitude about BlackBerry hasn't changed for last few years and probably won't change until they go private, "BlackBerry is dead". As far as I'm concerned, they are not going anywhere, anytime soon.
The market is just shrinking that's all. Once people realize that there are 3 "mainstream " options for OS's (windows,android,iOS) people will eventually get tired of it. People will eventually get tired of security issues, reliability, cost etc.etc and people will be curious to try new things.
BlackBerry will be exclusive to a niche market and to me, I don't give a rats *** about other people's phone, however, having something rare is a luxury in itself. Look at Vinyl, is it making a comeback? Sure it is.
Just like watches. I personally think a pocket watches are cooler than a wrist watches. Go find one, it's rare.

I worry at times regarding phones in that some people focus too much of their life on them.
Personally I use my Z10 the same as I used my previous BB's primarily as a communications device that works in all zones and at this it is excellent as it is at providing entertainment as long as there is charging available, the camera is good and useful for quick relay of pics involved with my work etc and also for momento pics , actually quite a good camera but if I want to take serious pictures I get my Nikon out.
As for apps - how many do people want ? half of them on playstore are a load of rubbish anyway and to be honest if I am concerned about my blood pressure I use a sphygmomanometer not my damn phone. People often have apps they never need and probably do not have a clue how to use anyway, Quality is always better than quality.
I do not want to revolve my life around my phone I have a life in the real world and do not wish to spend all day looking at a 4 inch screen, Blackberry is the best at communication and it will take others a lot to catch up, I bought mine to do exactly that.
@ Blackjack , pocket watches are not rare and are still made , and you can easily pick up a decent 19th century one for £60 [$90] and really nice ones for about twice that.
Blackberry will not die , the corporate packages are the best that there are and BB supply excellent coms devices.
