This just popped up on another thread, I'll throw it in the 'stock pot' without comment:
StreetInsider.com - Checks Indicate BlackBerry (BBRY) Z10 Still in Stock Across U.K.; Sales Reps 'Undereducated'
One trend I see we are seeing regardless of sales is that BBRY needs to put more pressure on carriers in terms of staff pushing devices or look at the incentive packages.

I agree with another poster in different thread (discussion of same article)...they are creating buzz slowly and will now begin to turn up the machine know as marketing. The F1 sponsorship with Mercedes is huge, in Canada it appears the brand is well displayed and today when I purchased my device the staff were not perfect but not abysmal either. I think every week for a good long while we will see one thing or another announced that will build on the already considerable buzz...which was created with pretty much zero dollars. Can't wait to see what they accomplish with several hundred million dollars.

Reminder: The thread title is "I SUPPORT BBRY AND I BUY SHARES!". . . . . . . . Remember?Do those who protest the loudest or longest have a lock on the truth?

Here's a secret - it will not be done for nothing - there will be a **** of a lot of spending on things that will be later folded into a line item for PR but are things like flying journalists around, taking them for dinner, buttering them up, putting people up in hotels - a friend of mine is at BBJam, BBRY is picking up the whole tab, everything from when he leaves his house to when he gets back. I'm not singling BBRY out, everyone does it - ****, some companies even expect you to put on their T-shirts. It's a fairly murky area and something that tech journalists don't really like to talk about - the better ones do provide a disclosure but that's the better ones.
However having said that, yes as part of the overall picture it's not that much.

Some more evidence of solid support in the UK:
Mr Heins said a substantial number of UK users are moving from other platforms to BlackBerry and said that is an encouraging sign because they first targeted long-time BlackBerry users.
'It's beyond expectations,' he said. 'White is sold out already. The black is hard to stock up again. It's very encouraging.

I purchased two Z10s today in Vancouver from Virgin Mobile. I was supposed to get them via my preorder at Future Shop but they hadn't received them yet. This is at the Downtown Vancouver location.
So I wandered up to the Virgin Store. He had two white ones in the back, but no accessories of any kind.
He was perfectly helpful, but had very limited knowledge. He said that he had only had the store demo phone for about an hour so he couldn't help me with it too much but he was positive about the platform in general.

today was the first day in weeks i didn't pay any attention to the stock price.
went to the mall to pick up my fiancee's Z10. i went with her to a clothing store, and while she was in the change room, i started looking at my Z10. a store rep from boathouse stopped and asked, "is that the new blackberry? i just got a iPhone 4s and now i really wish i waited".
so, previously people would say "oooooo a blackberry". now they say, "OH! a BlackBerry!!!"
the tides have turned.

Looks like $16 is the new support. Very low chance it will go lower than that unless there's bad news and good chance it will hit $17 soon if there's any good news.
I was definitely wrong about the stock dropping from the superbowl commercial. That's for sure.

Need some help understanding NASDAQ. After hours trading is still going on apparently, as they have the price after hours as 16.31. How is this possible and will this effect tomorrow's opening dramatically? Thanks for any assist....

yea, im not really understanding after-hours.
what if the price starts tanking in after-hour trading, and you're not able to sell before your shares become worthless?
seems unfair that some can trade after 4pm and other can't.

Yea after hours trading means the stock is 16.31 right now. IF in pre market trading it gets to $17 then the stock will open at $17 or will be up $1 at the start. Its like if Google reports earnings the stock might jump $40. So the next day you check the stock and at the open its already up $40 its nice. IF the company reports bad then the stock could drop like crazy!

Thanks guys for the quick response. Dang, makes a person want to set their Stop or Stop limit now just in case. Geez, if you have lots riding on stocks, it would pay to watch this all the freaking time instead of 0900-1600. Again, thanks for the assist.
