    Hoping it's not too bad, but then again I want to get back in on a dip. The world must know Blackberry Blend! The best piece of software ever written. This alone tells me that the company should survive and make handsets. They need to believe enough in the handsets to make the right investments in marketing. Screw Wall Street. Take losses, but get the product developed and into the marketplace. Chen might be playing it too close to the vest or maybe he really wants to try to just sell software.

    Wishful thinking...we need to consider that it's not going to be an exceptional quarter, but moreover, we'll probably see a purposely-reduced revenue, as mentioned earlier.

    I'd say $785-$795 mil rev and EPS of (0.01) or (0.02) would be a fair assessment.

    We shall see soon...

    We won't lose money. Chen said breakeven by this quarter, and then said we're two quarters ahead. He deferred Passports from last quarter as insurance. Delaying the launch of the US (and Indonesian) Passport and Classic was intentional as well. He could very well have claimed tax redemptions early too, like they did last year.

    I'm going to say $[however million] it takes to get to EPS 0.01

    This might not show up in this quarter's numbers, but this spasm of updates may cause severe harm to the company. My Passport was like a dream when I first bought it. Now it can't run Android apps unless I just have restarted it. Another weird bug is that when I put a call on speaker phone it starts to vibrate like it is ringing and I had the phone set to vibrate. All over this website and other forums, people are reporting different bugs. It's like however they rolled it out there was some fundamental flaw in how the code was transmitted so there are countless little errors of different variety. I think everyone might have to do clean wipe reinstalls. That is what I might do.

    But what if they have sold 2 million phones to new OS 10 users and their OS is all buggy? Can the OS survive this?

    Morning Gang! Just doing my last minute research to get my ducks in a row to digest the numbers we're about to see in about 30 minutes. It's like a fun little game I play to speed scan the financial report to decipher it as quickly as possible the second it hits the wire. Figured I'd share a quick stat for reference:

    • Q4 FY 2014 December 1st, 2013 – March 1st, 2014: 1.3 million smartphones shipped
    • Q1 FY 2015 March 2nd – May 31st, 2014: 1.6 million smartphones shipped.
    • Q2 FY 2015 June 1st – August 30th, 2014: 2.1 million smartphones shipped.
    • Q3 FY 2015 September 1st – November 29th, 2014: 2 million smartphones shipped.

    hardware revenue on approximately 1.3 million BlackBerry smartphones. Approximately 1.6 million BlackBerry smartphones were sold through to end customers, with an ASP of $211 compared to $180 in the previous quarter.

    Are end customers the carriers, but only 1.3M activated to end users? I thought these would match by now as their writedowns should not be reducing devices recognizing revenue?

    I really like the $156 million increase to $3.27 billion in cash. With a market cap of $4.85 billion, we are only paying $1.58 billion (yes I know, plus the debentures) for this company, that seems to be able to sustain a profit. Sounds like a good deal to me!

    So they can make profit on

    660M revenue
    1.3M device sales (and they pushed classic launch in US to Q1/16)

    I guess now Chen can hopefully guide higher on device sales, rev, software, qnx, bbm, device asp?....everything higher for q1.

    ASP of 211 is pretty bad considering passport and classic in the mix. Device forecast is a wild card they still need that rev...
