    I don't think RIM will out do Apple's comeback with just BB10, but it will be a nice comeback I believe.

    You realize BB10 is more than just one phone right?
    They got to their peak with the old OS, why don't you think they can make a comeback with a new one?
    Add to the new OS, they also have QNX and all the potential M2M that it brings and you have the makings of a great comeback.
    RIM is dead. Long live BlackBerry!

    Thank goodness they are starting to talk about actual strategy and action... A far cry from the marketing silence, neglect and inaction in the days of Balsile and Lazaridis...

    That was a really informative video, Frank Boulben looks very willing to take on the challenge and I'm glad that he addressed the Marketing needs within RIM as a first order of business and can't wait to see what's coming with the launch.

    Bell and Telus are rumoured to open up preorders later this week...so that's when mine will be reserved.

    RIM probably gave Rogers the early jump because Rogers is a strong supported of BlackBerry

    Comebacks are the best after you fall way behind, so RIM will make the best come back of all times for sure........

    Can RIM tell these companies when they can start taking pre-orders?

    lol Recool

    Great interview though. I've yet to see an interview of the executive team that i wasn't impressed with. They're all very enthusiastic and eloquent in their presentation, and also very informative.

    Plus, it confirms the fact that all those BNN interviews and the like (and even this one itself) are all part of their pre-launch marketing strategy.

    All of the executives look very tired, Frank, Thor, and most likely Kristian should get a nice long nap on January 30th!

    RIM doesn't have to "out do Apple's comeback". Sheer viability will do, and they seem to be doing everything they need to in order to reestablish that.

    There's a few reasons why the previous 100k+ could have been viewed with a healthy dose of skepticism. If it were a climb down from 50k to 20k, I might be concerned, but 70k is still a pretty healthy portfolio. CONSIDERABLY better than Windows Phone/Win RT is likely to see for a while.

    And, let's face it, the sheer number of apps may turn out to be not quite so important as exactly which key apps are there for launch. Something tells me RIM is likely to bat 2 for 3 there (i.e., we'll see most of the big ones that users have been clamoring for, but maybe not all for one reason or another).

    I think Frank mentions greater than 70000 apps because they are already there. If he mentioned that BB10 will launch with greater than 100000 apps and they don't, the media will let them have it. Although I still expect over 100000 apps to be available at launch or slightly afterwards

    They can sleep after BlackBerry 10 smartphones ship to end-users via wireless carriers and not one second earlier. However, if BlackBerry OS 10 is not ready for the tablet by early summer (June 2013) and/or BlackBerry 10 smartphones cannot bridge to the existing BlackBerry PlayBook running BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.1.0.1088 there will be many questions to answer.
