    Being a skeptic about BB strategy moving forward, I have to think this is a result of a less then steller take rate of the current BES set-up. Knowing their history, I hope this is not a half baked, rush to market to make it look like they had this cooking for a while.

    Regardless, if BB can bring this to the cloud with no server costs for businesses and all the traditional BB enterprise magic, I have to think this would be a huge hit.

    Do not forget BES10 will also be tight to Office365 ...
    Still no news of a time-frame though. And I still believe they're 'on hold' until something happens.

    Argument from authority. This fallacy is further undermined when the authority has been proven to be wrong on the subject at hand. To wit, Prem is responsible for Fairfax buying and eventually owning 10% one of the worst performing, spectacularly falling , and troubled companies in recent times.
    You cannot compare long time investment to speculation or day trading.
    When profits will not be anymore diluted in millions shares EPS but only a figure at the end of FY, returns can be huge.
    And yes, IMHO, even in a "niche" market like entrerpises and gov/institutions where volume has no sense but only regular/recurring incomes matters.
    Again, BlackBerry is going nowhere but on a narrower road. The one they may be alone to follow in the very near future.

    BBRY already runs Cloud-based BES5.x for Office 365, and has been for a while. Basically, any Office 365 clients gets free cloud-based BES5.x. It's been quite reliable for those that I know that have used it.

    If they can do the same thing but with BES10, and then open it up to non-Office 365 clients as well, it will be a huge hit for sure.

    As long as BlackBerry is in the public eye, there will be short-term damage but they have to get the best deal here and shareholders will have an opportunity to vote on the proposed offer. I see the whole thing going on for many weeks, it can't be done by early November. Let's assume that Prem makes a formal offer, he has to garner votes to complete the deal and I believe he will fail at that price. His deal will die at $ 9.00/shr and it is likely that others will step in and improve the price and even consider buying shares in the company to take the price over $ 9.00/shr thus sealing the failure of Prem's offer. This will play out for months, and certainly not be over in the days ahead. A strong bid that has the agreement or approval of Mike L and Prem would close the deal at a moments notice. Will MSFT come along and offer $ 17.00/shr? That's what it will take to close the deal quickly, anything short of that type of offer will drag things out for months. Prem can't take the company away from shareholders for nothing and the board can't approve of a deal without a shareholder vote and I don't see BB going for $ 9.00/shr. Finally, the assets are worth too much for MSFT and the like not to make a bid. Prem's offer is merely there to get things rolling at $ 9.00/shr. Just my thoughts of course!
    Hi Morgan,

    May I conclude that, if your prediction becomes reality and Q3 earnings turns out to be (much) better than expected.. the company (and shareholders) for once have time on their side? Meaning they don't NEED to close a sale before the next ER? Hmm, why does it feel like I'm jinxing us.. :-)

    Sadly, there are many that got in and are now stuck. Price is still at .05 and they can't get out. I suppose it serves them right for thinking they were getting Twitter for mere pennies, but I still feel for them.

    Why the heck is the SP only 8 and not at least $9. I still don't understand why nobody believes in the PW offer and/or that other companies are coming in to bid.

    LoL, noticed how this service will be available end of november? Prem's date is nov 4th. I am thinking that xBBM may be around that time. Share holders vote may be before end of november IMO.

    Are you itching to jump back in?
    Remember that Google paid $17 Billion for Motorola, for what? Patents and manufacturing.
    Blackberry has so much more to offer than Motorola did.

    Of course not all investment is banned, but note some of the history: Canada blocks Petronas' bid for Progress Energy That's from a year ago: "Canada has blocked the Malaysian state-owned oil firm Petronas' US$5.2 billion (CA$5.17 billion) bid for gas producer Progress Energy Resources, saying the proposed investment would not provide a net benefit to Canada. Federal Industry Minister Christian Paradis did not explain his decision in a statement released just before midnight Friday, saying only that it was made after a careful and thorough review of the proposed transaction."

    The point isn't that they outright ban investment because that's certainly not the case. The point is that it requires a review with uncertain outcome and a history of sometimes non-transparent objections, and that would certainly tend to depress the stock price relative to what it would be if this were not the case.

    wrong, first it is not 17B.

    Then you need understand the context of google buying. At that time, google really did not have many patents on mobile tech and they want at least try Apple's path. Now they already have the patents and hardware, bbry is not a must for them. Even for security, many Andriod phones already get certified by DOH and others.

    That tells how big a problem BBRY has. '

    BBRY will be sold in piece if a PE(like Fairfax) takes over, it just does not have a way to live by itself, The BYOD is just everywhere, I could not see any reason why an enterprise would limit their employees to use some specific brand of mobile phone, needless to say it is bb phone.

    For product like BES/BBM, what is really so special when dealing with other platforms? Nothing, Other competitors can do the same.

    The only way for BBRY to make some kind of existence is to be sold to a company like Google/Samsung.

    These guys seems sketchy to me. In addition to BBRY they are also doing the same thing with J.C. Penny and Bioscript. Appears to be their way of making money is by taking advantage of pissed off shareholders. These law suits usually don't go anywhere.
