Positive BGR article - Could Blackberry be back?
Can't believe I am linking to a BGR article that is positive for RIM.
After hitting a rough patch that seemed to last for most of 2012, Research In Motion (RIMM) may finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. RIM plans to unveil the finished version of its next-generation BlackBerry 10 platform at a press conference on January 30th, and at least one new smartphone is expected to be revealed during the event. Generating interest in BlackBerry 10 within the crowded global smartphone market will be no easy task for the struggling vendor, but if demand at top Canadian Rogers is any indication, RIM is off to a promising start.

From Kevin:Yeah, just to follow up, I heard from contacts at Rogers that they actually sold more preorders than was their initial handset order from BlackBerry, so they've had to already up their order volume (and hopefully that second order will come through fast enough to meet preorder demand).

Gratifying as this news is, we can't get ahead of ourselves. I firmly believe these phones stand to do very well in the market, but we won't know for sure until people are actually able to BUY them.

BGR remains nothing but a rumor, analyst, and PR reposting site filled with and maintained by trolls. Just because they happen to post something we agree with this time doesn't really justify giving them eyeballs.

“While we can’t release the total number of reservations we have received for the BlackBerry 10 all-touch device, we can say that customer interest is definitely strong and reservations continue daily,” a Rogers spokesperson told BGR via email."
Never ceases to amaze me what do you expect them to say? OMG we can't give these things away!!!
Why "can't release numbers" if demand is strong why not tell people you better get to a store and sign up 'cause we already sold 250,000 of these and that's the first 6 months of supply!!! You only can't release the numbers when to do so won't do you any good.
Ever see the movie "Bull Durham" where Nuke teaches the kid how to give an interview - that's what this is. I was gonna post it here but there is some foul language in it and this is a family site.
And this is important. I am not trashing anything BlackBerry with this - I am just saying this is what they train the "Rogers spokesman" to say, no matter how many they have actually sold. Or any 'spokesman". Selling anything.
Kevin says that it's his information that they sold out of the initial order. That's the news that's gonna get people to believe this thing is hot and they better get their name on the list if they are even thinking about it. That's the information the "Rogers spokesman" should have released. I would love to see Kevin quoted all over the press saying just this. Not the BS above from BS Genius
