    Default Seriously Fox News???

    They just reported something on TV about brands that might be disappearing in 2013 and listed RIM as one of them. I know some news sources let people blog about whatever they want, but I thought they had to be sure if they were going to say it on national television. The link on TV said to go to myfoxla.com, but I couldn't find anything else on it.

    Have you seen Fox News before?? If you have and you honestly think that they have to be sure about anything (I presume you're referring to the truth), then you need to really try other news sources... try the BBC. Frankly, you could try Fox's sister station, Sky News, they're still A LOT closer to the "truth" than Fox!

    I believe they were reporting what Yahoo is saying in its year end predictions. Yahoo has a series of lists including the 10 brands/names that will disappear in 2013. RIM is on the list possibly for a second year in a row (not sure about this). I think there is already a thread on this somewhere on Crackberry. In any case, predictions are usually BS anyway. I am sure Yahoo didn't put itself on the 2013 list so how accurate is it likely to be? .

    It's Fox. A mediocre spokeschannel for the conservative right quoting a failing has-been internet giant. Trash will result.

    That said....BB10 is make or break for RIM in the U.S. Anyone who hasn't got blinders on can see that.

    I've seen it before, just couldn't believe I actually heard it on TV. People online are usually tech people reading in the tech sections. People that randomly hear something on TV are usually ignorant to the issue.

    Default Seriously Fox News???

    As another person said they are likely regurgitating what Yahoo wrote. There is no news anymore and certainly not any journalism. When Justin Bieber took a trip to the loo makes more headlines then what is really happening. Most of the reason for this is because, like Jack Nicholson said, people "can't handle the truth." They like to live in their bubble.

    Fox News is entertainment although it can be dangerous to the viewer's health because of frequent increases in blood pressure. The Surgeon General recommends watching Fox News less than 2 hours each week.

    Don't forget this is the last shot Rim has to survive. I believe BB10 will be a winner but only time will tell. With a poor economy and other smart phone manufactures seeing declining sales its a tall order Rim has to dish out to make it a winner.

    I have to agree with others here. This is RIM's last chance to survive. At the very least, if RIM's handset division dies, it will be with a bang and not a whimper. To paraphrase King Theoden, if RIM is to die, let it be such a death as to be remembered!

    Anyway, I'll be lining up with the rest of you to back RIM. The BB10 will be awesome. I hope others see the phone the way we do.

    I too watch Fox News. Like any news outlet they report what is released by "experts" in the field. In the past it has seemed (IMO) like they were a bit of Apple fans.

    But I think in time they too will be won over by BB10 if and in my mind it is a big if, the app support is there.

    According polls 65% of BB owners don't like their devices... so there aren't as many BB lovers as you might think.

    Why would iOS or Android owners leave ecosystems that they are invested in, for a platform that has no ecosystem of its own. Maybe RIM will announce one soon, but so far they haven't said anything other than they are relying of support from "partners".

    Maybe you think they will buy BB10 Devices just because of the great hardware?? Why, when it isn't really going to be all that great compared to what Android has been selling for six months.

    I do believe that BB10 is the best mobile OS on the market , at least from the little I've seen. But a good OS, with an cool UI is not going to sell smartphones for long without the Applications and the Content that users today expect. And at a PRICE that is COMPETITIVE with the Android Devices - iPhone is in a different class than Android or RIM. If RIM prices their new mid grade hardware at premium prices... it is going to be game over for them. They aren't going to get a chance to come back in 6 months with price reductions, by then the market will have made it decision and will have wrote RIM off.

    It is very much still in the air as to if RIM can successfully launch their new Platform and it be accepted by consumers.

    Uhm what? RIM is losing money and their subscriber base is shrinking. They aren't doing VERY GOOD period.

    BB10 is RIM's last hope of survival. If it has a poor launch it could very well spell the death of RIM as we know it.

    I disagree, at least partially. RIM is doing *fine* world-wide, it's just struggling in NA. If things really go south and this crashes and burns (not likely IMHO), they can easily just switch focus onto the rest of the world (likely with 7.0-type devices). They won't actually 'die'.

    Check again...the poster you quoted clearly said "in other countries except North America." This is true.

    I suppose ALL of the reports of BLACKBERRY selling well in other countries is a.......HOAX. Doubt that very much. Honestly you need to get out more, or read whats going on in other countries besides the ONE your familiar with. The BB10 devices ....IMO, are targeted at North America market to compete in a very crowed arena. Hopefully the BB10 will do well in this ever changing "smartphone" world we live in.......hear today gone tomorrow.

    At least most of the talking heads on Fox have and use BB. I have seen several on the desk or have heard talk about them. Greta Van Sustren posted pictures of Carl Cameron (chief political correspondent) taking pictures in Poland with his 9900. It was just a story to fill up the 24/7 air time. Hardley worth getting all O'Rielyed up over.
