Of course it's a 2012 flop. It's not out until 2013, lol. Derp! In other news, Yahoo doesn't have any room to talk about tech flops -- they are one.

BB are only a flop because they only changed their CEO once, not twice like yahoo lmao.
also the bmw 4 series seems not a flop but kinda pointless, id rather an i8 any day of the week

Not surprising this is coming from one of the the biggest tech flops of 2012 (Yahoo)--- Smartphone ---
Current: Apple iPhone 4S (16GB)
Next: BlackBerry 10 Q15 (The Ultimate BlackBerry)

Seems like a bit of a liberal definition of 'flop'.
One usually reserves that for a product that came out with high expectations and didn't move anywhere near those expectations. ie. Cutthroat Island costs $100 million to make but pulls in $3 million at the box office.
BlackBerry 10 hasn't even come out. I suppose since the PlayBook was a 2011 product, it was ineligible for their criteria. Personally, I would have put that Google Nexus Q in there in place of an unreleased product.

Calling an unreleased product a flop because of a delay is ridiculous. They're just trying to stir controversy in an effort to become relevant again.Proud owner of black Z10 (10.1.0.1880 leak) on Telus, PlayBook 32GB (22.214.171.1246), and 100 shares of BBRY!

BB10 on the list for the Biggest Technology Flops for 2012
Yahoo drives me insane. Cant believe they are still around. Other than CEO Marissa looking hot, the whole company sucks.

Guys, OMG did you hear?!?! Christmas is only gonna happen in 2012. 2013 Christmas has been called off, so sucks for blackberry missing that lucrative Xmas shopping season that will never ever happen again.
I'm curious though, if BB10 is a 2012 flop, what happens if it sells well in 2013? Will Victor Alvarez make a biggest flop revival list? Can something be called a success if it has already flopped before release?
