The ONLY reason I'm watching the share price so closely right now is because I want the price to go back over $18 so I can sell and buy up even more shares once they drop again. Then I will have enough to hold for the future. Since I can't devote more cash unless I sell other stocks, this is the only way I can get more shares. Oh, and I still have 49 more free transactions from my financial institution!

There's 2 bearish factors to consider for the weeks ahead.
A shady and obscure US carrier released the z10 for 1,000$. No doubt people will hesitate to pay $400 extra now instead of later. "bad" news from this can hurt even if it doesn't matter

60% of voters want to wait for the keyboard device. That means less initial sales of z10
Our long term prospects are great even if we have uncertainty for now

I don't care where it is from day to day, as long as nothing fatal happens. As a matter of fact, I have some money lined up in case it goes to $12 or $13.
In the end, I hope to keep it for years as it climbs above $50, then $100, then $200 etc.

BlackBerry Workspace demoed on iOS and Android devices | CrackBerry.com - I saw a demo of this at BlackBerry Experience Forum in Toronto.
BlackBerry WorkSpace is a killer app. You install it on iPhone or Android. It creates a secure, encrypted space, and has it's own email, contacts and calendar client; and can be managed by your company's IT/BlackBerry admin (without them having to impose any restrictive settings on rest of your device features). My guess is BlackBerry will be selling this app on per user basis (like they sell CAL license for each BB/BES user). So, it doesn't matter what smartphone a company (like HomeDepot) uses, as long as they install BB WorkSpace on their non BlackBerry devices.
This is going to generate revenue for BlackBerry regardless of what device the company is using. BlackBerry does not even need to do any manufacturing, they simply develop the software - BB WorkSpace app - and charge a per-user license/CAL fee. Clearly, this has HUGE revenue potential.
I think this (potential) additional revenue from BlackBerry WorkSpace app has NOT been factored into the stock price yet. I think by June 2013, we will start to see BlackBerry service revenue being generated from this WorkSpace app. And that should really light-up the stock! All these fears about possible decrease in service revenue, loss of sales (when companies like HomeDepot drop BlackBerry in favor of Apple) will be rendered moot when BlackBerry shows that it can still generate revenue to more than off-set any loss!
Not to mention, additional revenue will also be generated from commission in sale of apps, music/video and other content, (NFC) payment processing. I think BlackBerry stock is really going to take off in June. What we have seen so far (from $6 to $16) is just a trailer. Post June 2013, when BlackBerry releases some hard financial data from these additional revenue streams, the stock is going to just light-up!***
1. Fix Contacts App (at the bare minimum: create 2 options - clear all links and disable auto-linking of contacts)
2. In your advertisement/commercials, please advertise "Android Player" as one of the features (you could show/print Android logo and advertise limited compatibility)
3. Support Google Play / Google APIs in Android Player so Google Now, Maps, Hangouts/Voice work flawlessly or convince Google to develop NATIVE apps for BB10.

4:50 AM Global mobile phone sales -1.7% to 1.75B units in 2012, the first decline since 2009, as demand for feature phones fell. "Tough economic conditions, shifting consumer preferences, and intense market competition weakened the worldwide mobile phone market," Gartner says. However, Q4 smartphone sales +38.3% to 207.7M, with Samsung (SSNLF.PK) and Apple (AAPL) increasing their market share to 52%. Samsung's total 2012 sales 384.6M units, giving it 22% market share vs 17.7% in 2011. Nokia 333.9M and 19.1% vs 23.8%. Apple 130.1M and 7.5% vs 5%. Samsung is also the leading vendor of smartphones, while in Q4, Huawei takes number three spot with sales of 27.2M. Q4 smartphone market share by OS: Android 69.7% vs 51.3% in 2011, iOS 20.9% vs 23.6%, BlackBerry 3.5% vs 8.8%, Microsoft 3% vs 1.8%. "With Samsung commanding over 42.5% of the Android market globally, and the next vendor at just 6% share, the Android brand is being overshadowed by Samsung's brand with the Galaxy name nearly a synonym for Android phones in consumers' mind share," says Gartner.

BlackBerry Z10 comes to the US early thanks to Solavei | CrackBerry.com
Early release, therefore the huge price. Not a chance this will be the definitive price though.
