    Don't you guys feel that BlackBerry 10 devices once new 10.2.1 released officially, BlackBerry native apps + all android apps will mean better android than android, and plus more marketing, will be killing devices?

    This single fact will scare the shorts and bring in more investors?

    This and the fact there are other more profitable shorts opportunities out there.

    Happy if this is finally shorts covering..they profited nicely off BBRY they probably will find a new target now, im hearing that shorts are piling onto twitter right now. If we can get the shorts to a reasonable level BBRY can trade regularly again imo and get back to atleast a decent valuation

    BlackBerry Focus on Software, Services, Support BBOS 7 Until Dec 2015

    In the last earnings report, BlackBerry revealed that a whopping 3.2 million BlackBerry 7 devices were sold, versus only 1.1 million BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

    It was clear that either the lack of certain core features or price points for BlackBerry 10 smartphones were not garnering the shift the company expected.

    Managing Director of BlackBerry India, Sunil Lalwani, recently gave an interview discussing the company’s future. Lalwani acknowledged the company’s fault with BlackBerry 10′s release, saying “The inherent new features of BB10 had to be clearly articulated to end-users, which wasn’t done well, leading to issues like inventory build-up of the Z10, but after cutting the price, sales have picked up again.”

    Software and services accounted for 60% of BlackBerry’s revenue last quarter, according to Lalwani. This is why BlackBerry will primarily focus on such ventures and leave little focus to devices.

    BlackBerry will seek to cutting costs of current BlackBerry 10 devices, with the Q5 expected to receive a price cut by January in India. Lalwani says the company will no longer focus on the entry-level market with its next devices and has no future plans to re-enter the tablet space after the PlayBook.

    With BlackBerry 7 smartphones still selling better than BlackBerry 10 devices, the company plans to support BlackBerry 7 until December 2015. “Then we will discontinue sales of older BB devices, and provide exchange offers and upgrade offers for existing BB 7 users, to move to BB 10 platform,” said Lalwani.
    And this:
    Devices will cease to be BlackBerry's focus area: Managing Director - Money - DNA

    BlackBerry is an aspirational brand and we want to cater to that segment that values what BlackBerry brings to the table. We are not in a mass market share or price war game. Our focus is on profitability, on how much we are generating from every device sale and software and services revenues.

    I hate to sound negative.. but it's a bit frustrating to see how BlackBerry is (at least) 6 months late in everything they do.

    I'm glad they finally "licensed" (kinda) BB10 to Foxconn. But it took a +5 billion dollar loss before anything was announced.

    Where are the BES cloud services at the price of 1 cup of coffee per month? Where is cross platform BBM video call and Channels? I'm willing to bet that daily downloads of BBM are well behind Whatsapp right now, perhaps even Viber as it's a very popular service in countries such as Brazil.

    I seriously hope they announce / launch something concrete at CES. I'm not sure I can handle another concept car right now. Show me the money!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

    Snowing outside my office right now, the worst is supposed to come between midnight and 7 A.M., should be an interesting commute in the morning. Expected to be at least 12 inches...

    I ******* love the snow and would never trade to live year-round anywhere else.

    Agree to a point, however it's been a whole week since the ER, Today they announced end of life for some devices...it's all leading in the rite direction (I think)...certainly more encouraging than in the past.
    I'm Also hopeful for CES...CHEN did more than a subtle hint, that's encouraging too.

    I do like Chen's actions so far. But we need to see increased revenue from BES and QNX, which means their service offerings need to expand, and fast. As we all know, it takes time to optimize software, or before it gains any considerable traction among enterprise or prosumers. So if it's ever the right moment, I believe now is.

    Also, I'm not happy with the way they announced that they would stop supporting BB7 at the end of 2015.

    There's already some confusion on these forums whether they will stop selling, or stop supporting BB7 through BIS at this point. The first is probably true, but it's creating unnecessary noise for the company - after Chen had laid out his plan.

    The article on N4BB mentioned that the MD stated the 'company would no longer focus on the entry-level market'.

    Now is this his way of saying Foxconn will take care of this segment, will they not be targeting the Indian entry-level segment or is it just really bad (vague) reporting by N4BB?

    In my view it doesn't matter. Because now it's BlackBerry's problem.. management should have learned their lesson by now.

    About the shorts:

    Seeking Alpha writer Bill Maurer notes that short sellers, those devious investors whom BlackBerry fans regularly attack for helping drive down the company’s stock, have eased their positions in the company, likely because they figure that they’ve already drawn as much blood as they can from it.
