$600 Sounds reasonable, I too hope they don't price to high.
Q4 should not be a big deal in the stock price, Unless its better than expected! everyone knows its not expected to be good. I personally believe it may be better than what Misek believes as selling BB10 into the channel should have already taken place. To what degree we'll see.
On the actual date that the phones are in people hands. I see a positive outcome here. If not at this point its not going to hurt the stock that much as its sure to be soon. Plus the market is about to understand what all RIM is bringing to the table. Outside of just phones. This again should be another positive!

Maybe I am a bit over zealous, but I think the RIM shares could go back to over $40 if the BB10 and the new models take off. I put in a reserve to buy 2 of the BB10 for my myself and my wife. We have three Play Book tablets for over a year now. They have been working great.Jerry G.

I think at the beginning it may be difficult to get more users to switch back from the other competitors. BB has been sort of behind the others in the look and the way their phones work. When Apple first came out with their touch screen phone it took a while for RIM to respond with theirs called the Storm. It used a tactile touch screen which was not easy to use when compared to the competitors. Also, the first generation of Storm phones were sort of buggy. I had three of them fail on me during the first several months I had the Storm.
I like the Blackberry bold series because of its simplicity, ease of writing long text messages, the strong security, excellent phone performance, and its high quality. All my family and in my business we only use Blackberry phones. Another big plus is all their phone products are compatible to the accessories.
A major competitor keeps changing their connection interface, and designs their phones to not be downward compatible. Their quality is not very great, their phones are very fragile and do mechanically fail often, and yet the people love them. It`s the software and games that turns on the users. I tried some of the competition phones for a short period of time. I will stick with Blackberry as long as they are around.

What I found interesting was that through a joke he was telling the truth that hedge funds who are short were calling him to yell and call him names about ungrading RIM. He also pointed out these hedge funds could suffer serious losses of 40-50% or greater. I don't think any short covering has happened yet and I'm willing to bet the numbers have even gone higher. I can only imagine how much these hedge funds have paid shills to write up fake bad articles on RIM?

I think android users just cannot afford apple, and so they buy the knock-off.
Of course, an android user will never admit that is the reason, so to save face, they say its cause they dis-like apple, or because its customizable or some other BS.
They are the people that used to own low-end blackberry phones. When RIM pissed off everyone, those people switched to low-end iPhones aka android.
These people will buy the low-end BB10 devices when they hit the market.
