    It also shows that the big 3 believe in the long term viability of BlackBerry.

    It is long term considering everyone was calling their demise 3 years ago

    In technology it is. Life cycle of gaming console is 7 years. People tend to replace smartphones every 2 years. 10 years ago, the though of two processors on one motherboard was amazing. Now phones have 8 ... all on one chip!

    I have no idea what the world will look like in 3 years. I do know that it will be much differnt though.

    I'd venture a guess that infotainment centers in cars will be HUGELY different in 3 years. I'd even think that internet enabled thermostats will be the norm instead of the exception. I'd buy one for $30. $200 or whatever for the Nest is stupid. And I don't want a learning thermostat. I want to know what my thermostat is actually doing by my direction. But I also want to be able to change the settings on my thermostat if away on vacation incase I forget to set it before leaving. And obviously, this has to be super secure. Last thing we need is a hacker to create a virus that increase everyones setting in the US to 100 degrees. The oil burn over such a short period could be impactful to gas prices since industry wouldn't have projected the extra waste.

    It's a heck of a lot more long term than many have been giving them. Also, it's an initial contract so they'll test to see how it goes

    The mobile payments exclude iPhone, at least for now, no NFC. And that's a good thing.

    3 years is a long time in the corporate world, especially tech.

    This is good news, potential to develop into a bbm money globally.

    Is it really though? Majority of devices are iPhone and Android devices. With BlackBerry backing Enstream, the more devices using their service, I imagine the better revenue for both companies. Mobile Payments needs to kick off in a big way, that's how BBM Money will grow too. If the cool kids aren't rocking mobile payments, then there won't be any growth.

    Perhaps this is the precursor to BBM Money in Canada. It's seems this infrastructure is using BlackBerry's NOC. I BBM transfer you $10 and you can go to a retailer at tap your phone to pay for your lunch!

    That would be awesome.

    What I was noting is simply that we do get a lot of posts about how crazy others are about going the Android route (privacy issues, security breaches, etc.), and that that is an interesting contrast to welcoming the idea of BlackBerry essentially going Android in regards to apps. I personally don't like the idea of all, but everyone has a right to their own desires.

    I haven't seen a single reputable article giving credence to this whole thing anyway, so I'm not that fussed about it to be honest. It would certainly be an odd move, and probably a profoundly daft one, in my eyes.

    Even if that happens, isn't the BlackBerry runtime for Android sandboxed?
    I would presume (hope like heck) that we have nothing to worry about.

    I had to read it twice this morning (while in a sauna - morning ritual) to make sure that I understood it correctly. I am still shocked that that piece came from an official CrackBerry contributor. I respect everyone's choices, but when a person abandon productivity (Hub, keyboard, etc) for other stuff such as Apps, I feel that he/she has wandered into a BlackBerry fan site by mistake.

    I won't believe it until I see it. It really does sound like a dumb idea. I could be wrong, but I don't think we will see that happen. I could imagine improved Android 'sandboxed' function on BlackBerry phones, but BlackBerry World is surely not going anywhere. I'm guessing the whole story is a nonsense.

    Off course but even at 9$, the valuation still seemed favorable to what BBRY could then fetch as a comparable valuation as well, no?

    More of a b2b play since it is the network infrastructure for the banks. Also, it sounds like it is for securing the transactions from point of sale to the banks. Therefore this isn't necessarily anything to do with BBM Money for Canada.

    BlackBerry would still have to come up with an agreement with financial institutions or credit card companies to transfer money from BBM to a bank account of some sort for BBM Money to become a reality outside of Indonesia. Wish they would come up with something soon on this front.
