    Listening to TH, sounds like this is a 2014/2015 hold. It's going to take a while.

    To be fair, they launched in a quarter that's known for having cr@p sales for the entire industry.

    Ok guys.

    we are prime example of Cognitive Biased people in this forum. we believe what we want to believe ignoring all other options out there....
    what happened today is one of the options we chose to ignore.

    end of story.

    Now all we can do is sit back and relax. digest the hit and hope for the best. eventhough my faith is shaken i will not react today i will wait it out.

    Good Luck to all ! consider today a wisdom lesson ...

    I'm shocked and will be out at the start of the market. The bears will easily push this well into the single digits ... 9 or 8 maybe. I'll buy back at the low
    Trading in the first few minutes is often a sucker's bet. Your money, but unless you have a huge account, you aren't going to be the first one out the door and sometimes it is better to avoid the stampede and exit gracefully a little later on.... JMHO!!!

    Bomb dropped.

    If the PB isn't getting BB10, at least update the damned thing.

    they would have been in line with their 'guidance' of approaching breakeven at least. I for one let the hype overtake my common sense, learning valuable investing lessons here as in a swift one upside the head. Too many talking heads started talking about a squeeze etc. should have been a warning sign, should have trusted what TH was sayin in the first place
    Right. And if they blew away earnings and started a slow squeeze you'd be saying "this was too risky. i shouldn't have done this. i should have listened to Thor."

    There are a lot of smart people on this thread. Got hit with unexpected occurrences affecting income since 3 months ago.

    No BB10 on the PlayBook is not a smart move.
    I wasn't expecting it to happen anyway, but I really don't know what they're thinking there.

    How much of last quarter had Q10 sales though? The qwerty market is where BlackBerry actually holds any ground...

    2.7mm BB10!?
    That is BAD.

    Didn't see that coming. That, along with the plunge in service revenues (which are like 90% margin probably) pretty much explains the rout.

    No, lets be honest with ourselves here.

    BB10 on the Playbook would have been a complete headache for device compatibility. They'd have to code it so that it could bridge with both BB7 and BB10 phones or they'd be dumping features.

    Going forwards to 10.2, they'd be adding features the playbook wouldn't be able to implement.

    Still, I want BB10-lite on my damned Playbook. Keep the UI the same but give us Cascades, the new browser, USB Host and headless apps.

    That's not a lot to ask for, and it keeps the BB World market from undergoing further fragmentation.
