Re: Seriously Fox News???
I doubt it'll do bad iPhone and Android have dominated the market for quite some time. Folks who I have talked to say they are willing to try it just because they're sick of their iPhone or sick of their Android and already tried the competition and don't feel comfortable with it. So regardless of how launch goesRIM is going to have people trying their product, now the question is will they like it or will not? That depends on preference and if it impresses.

Here are the latest numbers from South African carrier Vodacom:
RIM sold 300,000 BlackBerry phones - a growth of 12% over the previous quarter
Android OEMs sold 500,000 Android phones - a growth of 40% over the previous quarter
Apple sold 250,000 iPhones - a growth of 100% over the previous quarter
I can read whats going on in South Africa! Look BlackBerry growth has slowed considerably. The BlackBerry fad in South Africa and Nigeria is slowly dying. Just because North American ditched BlackBerry first, doesn't mean other countries aren't or wont follow.
Have you ever heard of TCL Communication? I haven't. Not once until about 5 minutes ago. But you know what? They are even beating RIM now. TCL sold 2.2% of the smartphones that were sold last quarter, while RIM only sold 2.1%. Now for the previous quarter, RIM was beating TCL. TCL = 2.0% while RIM = 2.9% . That is crazy that RIM is selling well in all these countries, yet still losing World-wide market share and can't even keep up with TCL.
2.1% of the smartphones that were sold last quarter were made by RIM. In what planet is that selling well?

I do believe RIM is "all in" with BB10, but it is difficult for me to picture RIM closing it's doors next year, even in the worst case scenario.

Well this discussion sent me on a search of global smartphone marsketshare for 2012. What I found was disheartening and doesn't support my impression that RIM was doing well globally. I was wrong.
Now, I have never used this company, but I couldn't find evidence that it was affiliated with any smartphone platform. Therefore I take their data with a "hhhhhhmmmm.....interesting......" kind of attitude.

Re: Seriously Fox News???
If there are counter numbers of actual global sales, please do include them.
I posted numbers I found. Not making an argument either way nor giving reasons. Just numbers.
The reported erosion is more than I had anticipated.

There are people that believe BB will disappear. I don't follow that line, but without an image revamp, they could become a bit player in the States, which would be a shame. I haven't folded the umbrella on them, and I know other users who are currently using other devices are willing to give them a chance. So, we roll in a little over a month from now with bated breath, cross our fingers, and whisper our prayers to whomever we call our higher power, for that miraculous sunrise to break and save us from the darkness.Report Button, not just for the bad things!Devices: SPH-A620/VGA 1000, Sanyo Katana, BlackBerry 8330, 9630, 9670, MB855 Photon, SPH-L710 Galaxy SIII.
