    My guess is that he's sharing an article about BlackBerry in a BlackBerry discussion forum. Maybe I'm wrong.

    The title actually sounded encouraging at first glance until I realized that penguins don't fly.

    Such a shame...the blame belongs on the carriers. The phone is wonderful. In comparision to other phones, leaves them in the dust. AT&T would rather sell any device than a BB. Absoutely no advertising in the stores or in the media. Let's hope Verizon does better. It's going to come down to word of mouth by consumers. I show my phone off to everyone that's interested. Most leave with a WOW. So far, 3 people at work are going to purchase from Verizon when available.

    This is brown shorts weekend and come Monday either the longs or the shorts are going to be wearing them. My grandfather always told me "believe 10 % 0f what you hear 50% of what you read and you will probably be right 90% of the time". Monday will be the game changer and set things straight.

    I like that there is a guy called pantless penguin liking the comments in this thread. Not clicking the link because Forbes has obviously lowered their quality standards as to what they will publish and are all about bait-clicking.

    They must have picked a poor headline for that, if the article (haven't read it) is actually negative.

    I've seen many videos of penguins diving off an ice "shelf" into the water, and if the phones were coming off the shelves like that, it would be a very good sign.

    Blackberry has long been a staple at AT&T. Can recall when Verizon would only carry one or two models and AT&T the full line. Having been with AT&T now for ten years, primarily because of their Blackberry line, I do not see them as being anti-BB. They will simply push anything that will give them the most contract sales. That is the business they are in. For that matter I don't see any of the carriers getting in the way of this phone taking off. I just don't expect them to take the lead in making it happen. They will only follow if it takes off.

    THIS!!! ^^^

    Anyone who thinks a carrier, as a company, is going to sabotage the launch is nuts. Individual stores, maybe, or store reps, certainly, but the entire company? That's tinfoil cap thinking.

    This "tepid" launch just means it's going to take longer than some had hoped for the platform to be widely seen as the success that most of us believe it will be. Well guess what? It would have been a fairy tale if it happened any other way.

    There's a lot of hard work ahead now, but at least finally it's on level ground rather than fighting every step of the way uphill against a strong wind. In a blizzard. With your eyes closed. You know... the way it's often felt over the last two years.

    "Seℓℓ like heℓℓ!" That means it won't come for free, so somebody has to get out there and show people the phones. They do sell themselves, once you can get someone to pick them up and play for a bit.

    What's even better is that the poster (pantsless) is a woman.

    "Flying penguins" seems like something cool Jim Henson and Frank Oz would have come up with. I miss the Muppet Show.
