    Anyone watching this should realise the power of PR. Exposure like that is paid for.

    This is where powerful PR helps. BlackBerry need strong PR, branding and marketing. BlackBerry should take a note from goods book.

    Going to that link.... Apple apparently hasn't paid their marketing "bribe" to CNBC this month. They have three negative articles on Apple posted.

    Marketing, PR and Branding only go so far....

    Alibaba doubles down on NFC payments

    why : NFC is implemented on all latest BlackBerry devices (> 9900s ?). Not on iP. This was claimed as an "unuseful detail" and could become a strong differentiator in several countries. (bashing prevention : and NO, it will not make BB #1 alone).

    "Charging companies" and "making money" are 2 entirely different things. Thanks to Peter for a very good post on this issue.

    Channels has potential, but for now ( and probably 2-3 quarters minimum) I think there is little doubt that if you allocate expenses against that product/segment, it is definitely NOT "making money." Not yet....
    Source? Link? LoL j/k

    Not much of a differentiator since the number 1 and 3 OSes also possess nfc.

    A note regarding these Jam Direct virtual conference things. There have been a couple of these so far, and each has a particular focus. I thought we'd already done an Android one, but I see I'm wrong... that was probably just one of the many developer webcasts that I recall.

    There was a Jam Direct on developing games (BlackBerry Jam Direct and BlackBerry Gaming «BlackBerry Developer Blog) and one focused on the features in the latest SDK (Discover what’s coming in the BlackBerry 10.2 SDK «BlackBerry Developer Blog).

    Don't read too much into the fact that there's an Android one. The timing is likely associated with 10.2 (or the upcoming 10.2.1) but beyond that I wouldn't assume this is actually "interesting" in any unusual way.

    Good move. BBMx video and voice and pushing 10.2 out in the US in the next 30 days would be a great start to any turn around. Great PR and adds a ton of functionality consumers and corps will like when they can actually see and use it. If I were Chen, I'd make sure these happen ASAP and (re) allocate resources to get it done. I know it's up to US carriers on the 2nd part, but he needs to pick up the phone and make it a priority.

    I was referring to some "noise" we might see in the comments from several bitter android fans (for the look-at-me-rant) and developers (for questions about distribution and IP). I believe cgk was somehow on the same subject (I may be wrong).

    I remember on the bold, i hold a keyboard key down to dial a phone number as speed dial. That was the most useful feature for me when it came to using blackberry as a phone call device.
    I hope that one day some one can suggest blackberry to implement Q10 key board mode on a touch screen blackberry 10 phone. Having the option to have all the keyboard shortcuts of blackberry physical keyboard device. What this mean is that q10 home screen (half screen for apps and a permanent virtual keyboard with an option to eliminate keyboard manually as desired) with having access to phone dial features from virtual keyboard.

    The distribution and IP stuff is irrelevant to this thread, I just seem the increasingly reliance of BBRY on android apps as a sign of weakness and lack of faith in their own ecosystem but we've run over that ground before...

    BlackBerry to steal SA market share in 2014

    While Nokia continues to dominate the SA market in terms of handset usage, BlackBerry has overtaken Samsung to be the second biggest player, according to new research.

    This is according to the latest statistics from Dashboard and World Wide Worx, unveiled on Tuesday, 26 November 2013, as part of its Mobility 2014 survey.

    Arthur Goldstuck, MD of World Wide Worx, said that the study of 1,200 people has been running since 2005, with the backing of First National Bank, and Dashboard providing the field services.

    Dashboard’s Peter Searll noted that Nokia retained its position as the most popular brand of mobile phone in South Africa, with 44% of users saying they use one as their primary device. This, however, was down from 50% in 2012.

    BlackBerry, meanwhile, increased its market share from 18% to 23%, while Samsung sits at 19%. Apple’s iPhone accounted for 2%.
