    I'm gonna disagree. It's been a long day so I'm probabley wrong but here it goes
    the problem is the wording not the math. The report indicates "Z10 has grabbed about 10% to 15% of the high-end smart- phone market and around 5% to 8% of the total smartphone market in the United Kingdom " That sounds like total market share not monthley share.
    I see where the confusion is coming from. I agree, the way author worded his sentence, it could be interpreted either way.

    Author's intended meaning is 5 to 8% of smartphone sales during since launch (this includes cheaper smartphones as well). And 10-15% of high-end (expensive) smartphones.

    "That sounds like total market share not monthley share" -- this interpretation defies common sense. Approx 90 M Smartphones were SOLD in UK in 2012. 5% of that would be 4.5 M smartphones. I doubt BlackBerry even produced 4.5 Million smartphones (their production capacity is believed to be ~ 1 M phones a month). So, as I just explained, this interpretation defies common sense. So, this interpretation should be discarded.

    In the consumer goods industry we usually use market share to refer to share of sales over a specified period. What you're talking about would most likely be described as percentage/share of smartphone subscribers (that's how comScore does it).

    In any case, the number of smartphone subscribers in the UK is around 25 million. There is no way that the Z10 sold 5-8% of that (1.25 million to 2 million) in the UK in one month given that total smartphone sales are around 2 to 2.5 million per month there. The Z10 would be #1 on all the various UK phone sites if that were the case, and would be outselling the iphone 5 and Galaxy S3 by 4 to 1.

    I created a limit sell order in my account today to sell all shares at $25. If that hits all of a sudden I don't want to miss out on the spike

    Of course if the stock slowly rises to about $16 I'm going to change the order to a limit of $30

    I just wondering how it can be if one engineer can calibrate antennas for 18-25 phones per day. i.e 2,000,000 phones per month / 22 days / 25 phones per day = 3636 engineers. Where do they keep those employees? I know they have office in Ottawa but there are only 15 of them there who calibrates antennas. Calibrating antennas is a difficult task and not everybody can do this.

    It is possible that the media are actually long on the stock and are all driving the price down as much as possible while there is no news so that they can buy in lower to make more money.

    If you buy a stock at $10 and it goes up to $30, you make a lot more money than having bought it at $13.

    The share price was around $6-7 six-eight months ago. It is doubled today. Hence, it looks like more selling out of what was bought 7 months ago. BTW. RIM bought back 243 millions shares back around that time.

    "RIM bought back 243 millions shares back around that time." Is this true? I never heard about this.

    The fiscal year ended in March 2. Is there any possibility that an anonymous one-post-user could give us insider information about the results in Q4, just as a kind recognition of the great support of this community to BlackBerry?
    You do understand the definition of insider trading don't you...

    Actually...The German government plans to buy as many as 40,000 BlackBerry 10 devices that will be enhanced with security applications from SecuSmart to meet NATO standards.

    PLANS TO BUY vs SOLD is a BIG DIFFERENCE...Remember that things can change in those kinds of contracts...

    Multiple sources say that they have purchased 5,000 of these units. Must be the German company that is making the money on upgrading.

    This is the title of the article:
    BlackBerry 10 with Enhanced Security Wins Hefty Order from Germany
    Normally, when a company win an order, the only step from being sod is to ship the order. Yes, it has not sold yet but it will be sold once it is shipped. LOL
