    BlackBerry Blend! It should make a splash

    Posted via CB10
    I know they will demo and announce blend but I'm hoping for a partnership announcement. That can rlly set the SP up for big gains and then followed by a return to profitability in the er would just be the icing on the cake and could see us above 15 again. This is all speculation at this point but I think it is possible

    Man, they make you click deep before you see that BB10 is supported. Based on their BlackBerry photos you get the impression that it was only the BBOS phones that were supported.

    Sorry. Google told me it was BB10 compatible so I didn't look that deeply. LoL. Love how it supports BBOS 4.2 and up. LoL

    Is that true the lot of local pages like blackberry.fr or blackberry.pl are closed and redirect to the main page (global.blackberry.com)?
    Does anyone know what was the real atmosphere in Porsche Design Event? Are people optimistic about Passport and earnings report?

    Considering that most blackberry phones and products are leaked months in advance, I am surprised that they have been able to keep Blend so hush hush. We have only seen a couple of small videos which haven't really shown much.

    This would either mean that it is really not that interesting or that it is and so they are keeping it close to their chest.

    I think it is the latter.

    I hope there are another couple of positive surprises. I'm still waiting for that dumb screen which will be an add on peripheral.

    It seems as though blend is a much more refined and polished blackberry blend.

    I would like to see them bust out some more productivity tools.

    I have been thinking about the iPhone 6. I do see the appeal. My mother recently got an android and I tried to help her set it up.android is too confusing for the average consumer. Way too many options.

    I told this is where apple has done well. They have kept a lot of things simple enough, so that someone who is not particularly tech save can use it easily.

    I think blackberry is a great combination of two, simple yet productive.

    Each OS will appeal to different groups. All we need is for BlackBerry to move to 5 to 10 percent market share over the next 5 years.

    I think BlackBerry ticks the right boxes for this small demographic, they just need to get the word out.

    Let apple and android keep their fans and we will take back some of ours!

    How could you leak something that is supposed to work on the internet: how could you leak a service that is still not active? ;-) I'm pretty confident in Blend: if BlackBerry will make it happen as it seems they will for sure gain traction!

    I recommend this post for a great overview of BBRY's current situation -- along with a few reasoned, though hopeful predictions for the upcoming earnings report: Why The BlackBerry Turnaround Story Is For Real - liwingon | Seeking Alpha

    Much of this post is material that we all know well, but I appreciate the author's careful reasoning and refreshing larger perspective. In my opinion, the author understands what is important and what is not, as opposed to most recent writers/bloggers about BBRY who overly focus on a few details and so lose perspective. [Note: I say this knowing that the author has not touched on many of the most important BBRY endeavors such as Ion, monetized BBM... Nonetheless, I think you'll see what I mean.] Amazingly, this is an SA instablog. I'll eagerly look for future work by the author, liwingon, who has just made her/his SA first post. Enjoy....

    Hi guys, under heavy load again. Reading as much as possible, etc.

    Just a word about what to expect in E.R : they (as of date) never mixed product/service announcement and E.R.
    I guess if announcement has to be made it will be the 24th. Lucky you you'll know it in the minute (or so ! )

    PRESS RELEASE FROM MARKETWIRE

    BlackBerry Enhances Mobile Payment Capabilities For BBM Users
    - New BBM Money service for Android, BlackBerry and iPhone users in Indonesia announced - New partnership with TransferTo will bring contact to contact airtime remittance enabled from within BBM

    Thursday, September 18, 2014

    BlackBerry Enhances Mobile Payment Capabilities for BBM Users
    02:00 EDT Thursday, September 18, 2014
    JAKARTA, INDONESIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2014) - BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB), a global leader in mobile communications, announced a series of new initiatives today that will enhance the mobile payment capabilities for users of BBM™, the private social network available for smartphones running Android, BlackBerry, iOS or Windows Phone. These new initiatives will take the ability to connect and share using BBM one step further.

    "By combining our DNA around security, and the real-time collaboration and privacy attributes of BBM, we are uniquely placed in the growing mobile payments space," said John Sims, President Global Enterprise Services at BlackBerry. "These new mobile payments partnerships demonstrate how we have effectively evolved BBM from the best real-time chat experience to a true social engagement and e-commerce platform. Whether it's sending pictures and files to groups or contacts; sharing their location or sending money or airtime - all from within the BBM app - our users' real-time engagement experience will continue to get richer."

    BBM Money

    BBM has been widely reported to be one of the most popular messaging applications in Indonesia. With the monthly active user count having grown by 150% over the past 12 months, and with Indonesia having only 11% debit card penetration(1) and the 2nd fastest rate of e-commerce growth after China(2), it is an ideal target market for BBM Money.

    Developed by Monitise and issued and managed by PermataBank, BBM Money was initially made available in early 2013 to BlackBerry users, offering basic mobile wallet services. The new BBM Money will also be made available to Android and iOS smartphone users, regardless of who they bank with or whether they have a bank account. The new BBM Money will enable payments in participating retail stores and online, while continuing to benefit from bank-grade security measures including passcodes and encryption and leveraging BlackBerry's expertise and legacy in security and privacy.

    Earlier this year, BlackBerry launched BBM Channels giving Indonesia's largest brands and retailers a social presence on BBM. "Many of these brands and retailers have a huge following on BBM," says Matthew Talbot, SVP for Emerging Solutions, BlackBerry. "When you realize the amount of time that is spent using BBM to engage with friends, family and now brands, linking payments was a logical extension."

    "PermataBank plays a vital role in enabling BBM Money in Indonesia. In addition to acting as the issuing bank, obtaining necessary licenses and meeting the regulations of the central Bank of Indonesia, PermataBank will use its enterprise payments expertise in working with retailers to increase adoption of BBM Money as a simpler way to pay," said Bianto Surodjo, Retail Banking Director, PermataBank.

    "Simplifying the payment and checkout process while maintaining bank grade security standards is vital for both consumers and retailers," says Darren Sugden, EVP, Monitise Asia Pacific. "We have always believed in the power of partnerships and by combining the strengths of BlackBerry and PermataBank with our 10 years of experience in mobile financial services we have developed a service that puts Indonesia at the forefront of mobile payments and commerce innovations."

    BBM Integration with TransferTo for Person To Person Airtime Remittance

    TransferTo is the leading global provider of international airtime remittance. Its services enable the transfer of prepaid mobile credit across borders, allowing customers to send airtime to their friends and relatives. Complementing BlackBerry's extensive mobile network operator relationships, TransferTo works with over 350 MNO's in 100+ countries, reaching over 3.6 billion prepaid users.

    BBM will integrate with TransferTo's airtime transfer services - meaning users can send prepaid mobile credit to their contacts overseas, seamlessly from within the BBM app.

    "Integrating TransferTo's global airtime remittance network with BBM will provide a simple and seamless way to enable small value transfers between people. As almost 80% of mobile users are prepaid, sending prepaid airtime will enable BBM users to stay in touch with their friends and family overseas. Moreover, the added simplicity of the service will be a win for end users, while providing our mobile operator partners the opportunity to leverage the reach and level of engagement of the BBM user base," said Eric Barbier, CEO, TransferTo.

    At its introduction in 2005, BBM set the standard for mobile messaging, and has since launched cross-platform extending its secure instant messaging capabilities to users of Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices. BlackBerry is committed to the continued evolution of BBM from the best real-time chat app to a true social engagement platform. Recent BBM updates have added file- and location-sharing capabilities to boost the productivity of users, as well as the BBM Shop, from which users can download virtual goods such as stickers.

    Notes to Editors

    BBM Money will be available for Indonesia customers using BBM on Android, BlackBerry and iPhone, from early 2015.
    BBM integration with TransferTo will be available for all users later this year.

    Thanks for this Corbu. Can't wait for the iSpin iDoctors iBS.

    "Apple iPhone and iPad users have taken to social media to express their frustration over installing the company's latest software update.

    Many have resorted to deleting photos, videos and other files in order to free up space for the new version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS8, which requires up to 5.8GB of storage.

    Apple has also removed apps for its new health software because of a bug.

    Hey M-8

    I know im being optimistic here but if we see a great passport launch event and a great ER the price will obviously pop but my question is at what price should be look get out at because after the pop it is bound to drop a little bit as it always has. Should be wait to let the dust settle after to ER or would you sell if and when it pops

    This might be one of those connect the dots moments:

    Mercedes-Benz... is using a cloud-computing setup to protect data as cars mobile links and software expand and the industry prepares for driverless travel.

    Elements of the technology will include enabling people in a vehicle to control how much of their data is available to the outside world while theyre on the road. Drivers will also have the option of erasing information automatically once theyve left the auto.

    If we say were making safe cars, that doesnt just apply to the mechanical technology but to data security, Hohmann- Dennhardt said at the event in Daimlers hometown of Stuttgart, Germany. Protecting information will be key to gaining customer acceptance of comfort and safety products, she said.

    Technology for self-driving cars is forecast to become a US$87-billion market by 2030, according to Boston-based Lux Research. Thats prompted automakers and insurers to look at how to prevent hackers from gaining access to information or even hijacking vehicles by remote control.

    Computer-specialist contractors failed in a three-month attempt to hack into the S-Classs systems, Ralf Lamberti, who runs Daimlers user interaction and connected cars unit, said today.
