    So, are investors getting all tingly ahead of the big save-the-company launch?
    Uh, nope.
    RIM today is down 45 cents, or 5.1%, to $8.36.
    Well on Yahoo Finance, all markets are in red today. How can the analyst pinpoint excitement to one moment in time?

    Well regardless of his cheap shot at the end of his article, the main point is what interests me the most...... RIM anounced that BB10 WILL be launching in February. No more speculation or rumours of March.... at least in most major markets

    where did they say that? I know they said the platform would be introduced on Jan 30 but did not see anything stating devices would be released at any certain timeframe other than "not too long after"

    It states it within the first two paragraphs of the Forbes article.

    Which is pretty much the whole article.

    Technically speaking, March 1 is within "30 days of the company's launch event," but I have a feeling it'll be a February launch.

    January 30th is at the end of the month....there is 28 days in February. Whether they are aware of this is not known or they really meant 30 days which in other Calendar terms is 28, 29, 30....soo basically 29 means March 1st and 30 means March 2. Soo I'm going with March 2nd the phones will be released.

    I must be missing something. The N4BB article says "within days" ... so where are you getting 30 days after launch? Just curious ...

    Because RIM confirmed it.

    We want to do it as quickly as possible, Chief Operating Officer Kristian Tear said in an interview following RIMs announcement of the Jan. 30 date earlier in the day. Though the first phones wont go on sale simultaneously worldwide, RIM is aiming for a release on multiple continents within 30 days of the unveiling, Tear said.

    30 days from January 30th is March 2nd if you calculate how I figured it out in my original post.

    Default RE: RIM sees BB10 devices available soon after launch

    So when the analysts said this wouldn't launch until march, they were right or are we really going to quibble over a couple of days?

    Only if they value their credibility and existence. As I said the other day the launch of BlackBerry 10 is the make or break moment in the sun for Research In Motion. If anything goes sideways the BlackBerry brand will be DOA. Holding a launch event without product already in the distribution channel would be suicidal.

    Couple of days is like 5 or 10....they said 30 which is more than enough and March is Still part of Q1.

    We've waited so long, does it really matter if released in February or March 1st?

    If you consider the pre-oder option, yes it is very important, even a matter of 5 days can change a lot on the market speculative feeling.
    In addition, assuming that RIM ships the first BB 10 devices 1-2 weeks after the announcement, BB 10 will benefit earnings in the quarter ending late Feb. Thus, the number of bad RIM earnings ahead would not be the two quarters (ending Dec. 1 and March 2) that the market expects, but only one quarter (ending Dec. 1).

    It's actually March 1st. You forgot January 31st in your calculation.

    No I did not. January 31st would cause it to be more than 30 days of what RIM is stating. I was going by the Other calendar years that have more than 28 days. January 30th from my calculation is When the Event happens.

    So January 30th (second to last date of the month) February 28th (Official Last Date of that month)...that's 28 days..For Regular Calendar year--
    March 1st makes 29 days. March 2nd makes 30 days. March 2nd is Still within the next 30 days of what RIM COO has Planned.

    Or like this: January 30th + 30 days equals 60 days.
    By that 60 days is TWO months--- January And February.
    February only has 28 days so you have to make up 2 days.
    March 1st - 29th day.
    March 2nd - 30th Day.

    Now if RIM held the Event January 31st then yes simple math means 30 days from that or a MONTH (which is 30 days) is Feb 31st. But that does not exist so that would turn into 28 days plus 2 more meaning March 2nd.

    Just look at the calendar and see that you Have to cound 30 days. February you can't count 30 it is only 28. Add two days to make 30 days and you end up with March 2nd.

    Are you really trying to defend your inability to count?

    January 30 + 30 = "January 60"
    January 31 + 29 = "January 60"
    February 1 + 28 = "January 60"
    February 28 + 1 = "January 60"
    "January 60" is actually March 1.

    March 1 is within 30 days of January 30th (i.e. the 30th day.) March 2nd is 30 days after January 30th.

    Mathematically, what I'm saying is 3/1 is (x,30], and you're saying 3/1 is (x,30).

    And I can't believe I just put a math analogy here...

    January has 31 days.
    February has 28 days.
    31 - 30 (day of launch) = 1 Day left in January
    1 + 28 (days in February) = 29 Days.
    Therefore March 1 = 30 days... Not March 2, that would be 31 days.

    Is addition really THAT hard to do? No... But common sense is not common soooo...
