    Interesting, Samsung gave KNOX to Google to integrate in all Android, not just for Galaxy devices.
    Does knox manages ios blackberry and windows devices? The current knox deployment has limitations.
    If all androids then then BB10.3 too? LoL

    I wish but not always. Long ago I lost over $60k on RIMM. I do keep "stops" that are adjusted often and search out the news just like you. There is some luck involved but I have come a long way on recovering much of my losses.

    I like your avatar VERY much! If I am not mistaken, that is me among all those white sheep!

    On India's Z3 price, confirming what others have said earlier:

    Priced at Rs 15,990, BlackBerry Z3 launched in India; Flipkart, Mobile Store dangle deal - Financial Express

    The Blackberry Z3 smartphone is here. The phone will be priced at Rs 15,990, but buyers on Flipkart and Mobile Store will get a Rs 1,000 voucher for the first month. Prebooking will start today.

    The phone will also offer a lot of content for the Indian audience and will include apps like Wonobo, a Google Streetview-like mapping serving covering top cities. The phone also comes with a keyboard that is as good with Hindi and Hinglish as it is with English.

    Blackberry India MD Sunil Lalvani said the phone has been designed keeping today’s India and its requirements in mind. “This is the first phone to come out of our partnership with Foxconn,” he said, adding that five-year strategic partnership with the Taiwanese manufacturer shows they were not taking away focus from devices.

    Lalvani said the VAT structures and Customs Duty does not allow the company to launch the phone in India at the $200 price point it is sold in Indonesia now.

    The Z3 is a 5-inch phablet that runs the Canadian smartphone maker’s latest BB 10.2.1 operating system. This is the first phone for which Blackberry is touring the Android compatibility of its new OS.

    This means the phone will give users the security and ease of use Blackberry is known for along with the app ecosystem that Android brings to its devices. Incidentally, within a few months BB 10 users will be able to access the Amazon app store directly from their devices.

    Hey Everyone! I haven't been on the thread in such a long time but Im glad to see that some familiar faces are still in the game. I see that for the most part we have all remained pretty positive on the turn around chances under John Chen which is good too! I still don't hold a lot of shares as money is tight but I did get back in again around the 6.50 mark and so happy I did. It dropped my average cost down to about 9 a share so Im pretty stoked to be making money again on the stock! Anyways just wanted to pop a hello, Ill be on here a lot more often now that my personal life has sorted out.

    I love these quotes :

    "not just Balance, but every single component ? is constructed upon a multi-decade bedrock of mobile management and security expertise."

    Too true. I think that was a major player in why blackberry has gone through such turmoil. Silent leadership is a failure to lead in business especially when your company is under attack.

    Nice of Audi to acknowledge that Android Auto, much like Apple CarPlay, will run on top of QNX:

    After connecting an Android smartphone in a compatible Audi, drivers will see a prompt asking if they want their apps to function through the MMI touch display and controls. The graphics and audio streams, including microphone input and all control interfaces, will then operate with Android Auto which is seamlessly integrated into the Audi MMI mobile media application framework developed by the Audi software joint venture e.solutions on top of the QNX Car automotive operating system.

    Right. QNX will act as the foundation of the entire system.

    Rumour says that it's a BES service for now, but let's hope they offer through the cloud for those non-BES types that want it. I wouldn't mind paying a bit to have access.

    How Google Inc’s new Android ambitions will take the fight to BlackBerry Ltd | Financial Post

    Google Inc. is making a big push into the car and into emerging markets with low-cost phones, pitting it head to head against BlackBerry Ltd. on two key points on its roadmap to profitability.

    The Mountain View, Calif.-based search giant kicked off a two-day developers conference on Wednesday by unveiling Android One, a program which works with smartphone makers to build low-cost devices aimed at the developing world, and a new Android Auto interface for motor vehicles.

    Those are two areas that BlackBerry, based in Waterloo, Ont., is making inroads into with its QNX platform for the car and its budget-friendly Z3 touchscreen smartphone launched in Indonesia, Vietnam and India.

    Google is a “formidable” opponent for Blackberry on these fronts, says Colin Gillis, senior technology analyst at BGC Partners Inc. in New York.

    “Certainly, QNX has some history there, but Google is pushing in hard and fast,” said Mr. Gillis.

    During its keynote presentation at the I/O developers conference in San Francisco, Google showcased the ways it is entering new facets of consumers’ lives.

    It unveiled three new smartwatches — the Moto 360, LG G and Samsung Gear — which utilize its Android Wear platform for wearables. Google is also taking another shot at the living room with Android TV, a version of its operating system for the big screen, and a bigger step into the office with Google Drive for Work. Google also previewed the latest version of its Android operating system, codenamed “L”, which has a more fluid, brighter feel and allows for better connectivity between various devices.

    But it is Android Auto and Android One that could give BlackBerry a run for their money.

    Google’s announcements on Wednesday come less than a week after BlackBerry posted quarterly results that topped estimates.

    During BlackBerry’s annual general meeting Thursday, chief executive John Chen said sales of its Z3 device (priced at US$191) in Indonesia have been successful, and it was on track to sell one million of the devices over the model’s lifetime. BlackBerry plans to launch the device in nine countries, including Vietnam last week and India this week.

    And it is India where Google is beginning the roll out of its new sub-US$100 phones under Android One. Google has also partnered with Micromax, Karbonn Mobiles and Spice in India.

    “We’re disappointed that less than 10% of the population have access to smartphones,” said Sundar Pichai, Google’s senior vice-president of Android, Chrome and apps, during the keynote. “We want to change that.”

    Android Auto, a voice-enabled extension of its popular mobile software, will hit showrooms later this year, Google said. It has signed up 40 auto-industry partners, and 25 brands have signed on.

    Mr. Chen has identified BlackBerry’s QNX in-car software as a potential growth area for the company as it seeks to shift its focus away from devices to services and enterprise-grade technologies. QNX is already the market leader in operating system platforms for automotive infotainment systems with market share of more than 50%, according to market research firm IHS Automotive.

    Many of the in-car entertainment systems from the world’s largest auto manufacturers, such as BMW and Honda, are built on top of QNX.

    That legacy will help BlackBerry, but it will have a tough fight on its hands, said Mr. Gillis.

    “[Google's entry is] meaningful… Google doesn’t win at everything, their social networking product didn’t take off,” he said, referring to Google +. “They rolled out Android TV, and that’s after previous iterations of television that haven’t worked yet.”

    Google shares rose 2.3% to US$585.93 on the Nasdaq. BlackBerry rose 1.3% to $10.71 on the TSX.
    This:

    “We’re disappointed that less than 10% of the population have access to smartphones,” said Sundar Pichai, Google’s senior vice-president of Android, Chrome and apps, during the keynote.
