    as e-BBM and BBM connected ...
    Believe it or not, even I am tired of talking about BBMx for now, but I do need to address that before going back to checking my portfolio for fun haha...

    eBBM is days old, and the only thing we know about its launch is that the update was a mess, and is leading to more user desertion, frustration, and general ridicule. BlackBerry can come out with BBM Teleporter for all any of us cares - the fact is that growth this quarter was ZERO, and if people are fed up with its stability and reliability when it's free, they are not going to be all that impressed when they're paying for it.

    Let's be honest now, regardless of whether or not my mother lives under a bridge: the problems I've raised are real, and the numbers are showing it. A 50% dropout rate is very, very poor, and once bitten twice shy is a real phenomenon. BBMx is the ugly duckling at today's ER party and we ignore it to our self-delusion.


    That's it from me on the topic for now. I'm off to sell some of my shares and perhaps go and (finally?) buy a Z30...it's been a very good day.

    Yeah, sky is falling and you experience is widespread worldwide.
    Given my *tiny* experience of CB forums, if ever your problem was massive, we'll be in the thousands multiples posts.
    So, excuse me, but *to me* this is not as important than you want it to be.

    Concerning e-BBM and BBM connected, these (to come) figures are really interesting because we're talking about Licences and reccurring revenues. This was my point, because they belong to the ENTERPRISE divison; one of the 3 others, beside BBM.

    C'mon ... grow up, it's not a pee length contest.
    There has been issues with iOs and Android BBM that have been reported during first launch, in dozens threads with each at least hundreds posts.

    O.T:
    You want to know why BBM isn't catching up as fast as you may want it ?
    Because you have to ADD users by request and this requires action V.S whatsapp that digs into your existing contacts and disclose pretty much anything. IMHO - and we can discuss about it, elsewhere - if it wayyyyy more important.

    WOW! John "Mr Good news" Chen... we longs were longing for such news! Great news! I will definitely will be picking up a classic and passport... The Amazon deal is great for the app gap. Now for more rapid growth of BES customers. And BlackBerry will be standing up again.

    Debate on BlackBerry coming up on CNBC. You can vote in real time to select the winner of the debate. Also JC will be interviewed on the show later.

    Nice report this morning. Will help my fund in the midst of the down day on markets...

    I almost fee like the Passport is a device for healthcare. Seems to fit the mould of the pocket on a doctor's jacket and the big screen.

    Otherwise, it is ok. Too wide to put in your front pant pocket.

    Let's leave it. Let's agree on 0% active user growth over three months despite the considerable increase in registrations (because it's verified by BlackBerry's own data), and interpret things differently. There are other things to be pleased about.

    As for growing up, I think you'll find that the ad hominem attacks in here flow entirely and plentifully in my direction, and that I haven't once directed one at anyone else on this site.

    I agreed to stop mentioning BlackBerry's awful marketing in this thread, and I'll agree to stop mentioning the problems with BBMx.

    In the name of being regarded as a fool, however, I'll predict now that over the next year, consumer devices sales are going to explode and we'll all forget about how they weren't important anymore - all about enterprise, etc.
