    I don't think they can quite cover the shorted shares with call options. It is more about limiting losses if stock moves in the opposite direction. For example, if someone shorted at $10 and then buys equivalent amount of calls for the shorted shares with $10 strike, they would be out of the call premium paid right off the bat. If the calls have higher strikes, of course, they'd have lost the difference plus the call premium by the time the calls cover the short position.

    Put your Z30 money into BBRY shares. By the time the Passport arrives, you'll have enough money.

    ...jk, don't take investment advice from people on the Internet.

    I suspect that most high priced shorts covered over last couple of years. The current shorts probably from mid teen $ and they probably made enough to cover short losses by bringing the SP from 6 to 12 and back to 6 couple time, and teen range few times. The short data does not tell when and what price shorted. No shorts would be stupid to short from 20s, 30s and still did not cover in single digit prices. If you look at # of shorts which was less 60 mil couple years ago the SP was around $15 to 20 then they started piling up and went all the way up to 185 mil around bb10 release. That tells me top 100 millions shorted shares from $10-20 and they had plenty of opportunities to cover them. For 2 years short playing yo yo with BB and that will not change until fundamentals improve or someone takes it over. my .002 cents

    India key for BlackBerry revival: CEO John Chen - The Economic Times

    India, one of BlackBerry's top 10 markets, is critical for the company's revival, as it provides growth opportunities for its enterprise and handsets business, says the Canadian smartphone maker's 59-year-old chief executive, John Chen.

    In an emailed interview, Chen tells ET that the company—transitioning from a smartphone maker to a product-***-services provider—is buoyed by the success of its Z3 handset in India and that it is key to it regaining market share in the country. Edited ..

    How critical is the Indian market for the company to turnaround globally?

    India is one of BlackBerry's top 10 markets and remains an extremely important region for us. Extending our leadership in enterprise mobility management (EMM) is a key to our transformation.

    We are seeing a great opportunity to grow our presence in India as the enterprise market here begins to embrace mobility as a vital part of doing business. India was also one of the first markets targeted for the BlackBerry Z3 and the device has been very well received by consumers.

    Are you happy with the Z3 sales in India and Indonesia? Can Z3 help BlackBerry regain its foothold in India?

    The Z3 has been extremely well received in both markets and we continue to see strong demand for the device. In fact, initial inventory of the device nearly sold out in India within two weeks OF THE launch.

    We hear from users that they like the price, screen size and battery life. This feedback demonstrates that we are meeting our customers' needs, which is vital as we work to build share in India.

    Can we expect more sub-$250-300 smartphones from BlackBerry in the next year or so? A sub-$100 phone?

    I can't provide too many details about our roadmap, but we will continue to offer customers a portfolio of devices across price points. Right now, we are focusing on the BlackBerry Z3, which we believe is available at an attractive price point for the features and benefits it provides.

    Are you happy with the Foxconn tie-up? Will BlackBerry outsource all its device production to Foxconn?

    As the BlackBerry Z3 demonstrated, Foxconn can help us deliver products to market faster and more cost-effectively. Foxconn is a very important partner for BlackBerry, but it is not an exclusive relationship.

    Please share your views on the Indian market for enterprise, BBM, and machine-to-machine.

    BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) has seen more than 1,000 installations in India, which is significant considering that we only launched it in the beginning of 2013. We are confident that this momentum will continue.

    As far as machine-to-machine TECHNOLOGY IS CONCERNED, India's government is increasingly focused on the Internet of Things (IoT), given the country's growing population and fast-growing internet penetration.

    BlackBerry's QNX embedded solution creates the building blocks for BlackBerry to deliver machine-to-machine technologies that will act as the backbone to the emerging era of the IoT.

    Your views on increasing competition in the Indian enterprise market with Microsoft also pushing its devices and services?

    BlackBerry's history is rooted in security and our competitors can't say the same. We offer the most reliable end-to-end secure communication platform, from the device, through the network and into the server level.

    In India, we are aggressively targeting large, mid-level and small businesses alike. BES Express has helped us gain a strong foothold in the SME and BYOD addressable space.

    Any time frame for the QNX launch in India?

    QNX could certainly do well in India but we need customers who want to implement this technology. We can't commit to timing but we are actively pursuing partnerships in the automotive and manufacturing space that will help us bring QNX to this market.

    Your comment on BlackBerry's results. What is the road for the company going forward?

    I know we still have a lot of work to do. By the end of fiscal 2015, we are targeting break-even cash flow results. Within the next fiscal year, I also expect to turn a profit.

    We are firmly on track to deliver on our financial objectives and commitments. For example, we're bringing new handsets and the next generation BlackBerry Enterprise Service, BES12, to market by the end of the year.

    Is BlackBerry looking at any more cost cutting measures?

    BlackBerry required a significant restructuring to ensure the company's future success. We are confident that the right resources are now in place for us to focus on our strengths, and that the biggest changes are behind us.

    What are BlackBerry's acquisition plans? Which areas would it be keen on for an acquisition?

    BlackBerry has identified strategic growth areas that capitalise on our unique assets and capabilities.

    The collaboration with NantHealth is an example of how we are making strategic investments in companies that will help us expand in industries that can benefit from the security, reliability and efficiency that BlackBerry products and services provide.

    How will BlackBerry benefit from the recent tie up for Android apps with Amazon?

    The partnership meets two very important needs for our customers. First, users will have access to more than 200,000 Android applications, including thousands of popular apps and games. Second, we can now focus our developers on creating apps for the enterprise market, where we see great potential.

    This better aligns with our corporate strategy and will be important as we continue to grow our portfolio of enterprise offerings.

    Hey guys, sort of anecdotal but check out this post by @OtterBox yesterday. They took a poll to see which smartphones were on everyone's radar. I guess they are trying to gauge what their next cover should be. Out of about 45 replies, the first two are iPhone 6. Have a look yourself to see what the rest had to say I was pleasantly shocked!

    Do you think there will be a rally today, or more Friday profit taking as Bungaboy suggests? Looks like we're slightly up in pre-market.
