    Starting to see rumours that cross-platform BBM has been cancelled? Anyone hear anything about this?

    Sounds unlikely but so did massive write-offs and the exit from the market...
    Any source on this? If true, would be borderline criminal...

    WTH? Anyone seen this one coming??? A new QWERTY priced below Q5?

    Edit: "WTH?" bolded!
    Maybe the layoffs are related to os7. All the hardware and software folks gone. Makes sense in that it makes no sense to support two operating systems.

    Actually, now that I think about it, a smart flip phone paired with a dumb tablet would be interesting. Flip phone is much nicer to deal with for incoming communications, and the tablet for outgoing and browsing. The flip phone is a cross between smartphone and smartwatch concepts.

    Good point... but in that case, they should just drop the price on the Q5 and not muddy the waters anymore, imo. In this day and age, the Q5 should be lowest end anyway.

    It could also be a partnership but who knows. This is the first time I've heard ahead of time the coming announcement of new contracts.

    It was posted in a WSJ article, stated by a BB source. Linked a few pages back.

    I don't understand the whole "prosumer" strategy. I think it's management double-speak to save face, "We don't know how we're flying there but that's our destination."

    BYOD trend is going to make selling prosumer devices very difficult. Most likely, BlackBerry will partner with someone to install BlackBerry security / enterprise solutions on other manufacturer's devices., similar to Samsung installing BBM on its devices.

    I was out of there hours before the pre-announcement :-). If happens again today please feel free to circulate conspiracy theories.

    Maybe if BlackBerry had a Balance Type app for Android and iOS - corporate email, corporate internet, few select apps, BBM.... that portion of the phone could be secured and managed by IT. And the BYOD owner could do what they wanted with the rest.

    Good day everyone!

    Just another day in the market, BBRY is taking its downgrades in stride, should be done soon. It's nice to have all of the "analysts" together once again, Misek is bearish, seems he liked software and security less than we first thought. We are getting some contract information tomorrow? Is this from the Wall Street Enquirer or is it from the Disney Channel? I put on another short position with AAPL, it hit my target first thing this morning when it filled the gap, didn't see that coming so we're in now. The rest of the market looks weak so I'm done trading today, will wait to hear whether we see BBM-X "completely" launched soon, that's the next driver. Once it is stable I'll switch a bunch of my family and friends over to it. The board looks good today too so thanks must go out to the mods here, I only placed one individual on "ignore" this morning. GL

    Edit: Make that 2 on "ignore" didn't see the new fella!!

    You have to take chances in life.... or it isn't worth living.

    Of course there is a difference in jumping off a 25' diving platform and off a 100' cliff....
