    Doubtful because they mention a 'multi-billion' company.

    I read about this a while back, but up until then, I have never even heard their name mentioned.
    If BlackBerry is truly going into the Android world, they should consider buying this small Corporation. If nothing else comes out of it, they could utilize the industrial property and design to an advantage for leverage on future dealings perhaps with Sierra Wireless, Cisco and Samsung.

    I wonder if the culprit is Cisco?

    dimi !!

    Sorry, this past week I have been busy but still finding time to follow the talk on this thread, excellent posts people.


    I don't know what to expect, I assume the numbers will be slightly negative but it is more about Chen's vision of the next two quarters that matters. Are we going to see another licensing deal in the next quarter? Are handset sales leveling off at these low levels? We also need to hear that software is growing this past quarter. We are long overdue for some news on handsets, enterprise and acquisitions, as long as Chen is upbeat I'm thinking we have some room to rally here.

    Over this past week, we climbed above the 50-dma, held it until the close on Friday and that's incredible for a pre-release earnings period, AND, a 290 point drop in the DOW. In terms of TA, we haven't looked this good since May/2015. As for my Passport, alas, I have dropped it one too many times again, and broke the glass! I'm in the market for a phone and don't know what to buy this time around, come on Chen, show us something new!

    Please tell me, what are your numbers for Friday?

    No predictions for their cash on hand? The purchase of Good took place in Q3, but the Athoc acquisition was in Q2 so I *hope* they manage to increase their cash position slightly

    Hardware:
    I have no idea what to expect here. I've read that JC plans to launch only 1 or 2 devices per year going forward, so I'm expecting he will have stabilized this aspect of the business. Also, prices of the Passport, Classic and Leap have been really steady.. and if JC wants to come across as credible when he talks about the end-to-end security that BB10 offers while introducing an Android device, we can't afford to see a huge drop-off in sales numbers for BB10. So, my guess is that revenue or margins won't differ much from last quarter's numbers.

    Service, Software & Patent Licensing:
    For Service and Software revenue, I expect them to announce that they hit bottom in Q2. Revenue from the Good acquisition and BES12 converts should make up for any lost SAF revenue going forward according to my calculations.

    So that hopefully leaves room for upside. Any other ideas / remarks?

    IMHO the key point is the mystery partnership.
    If it is Android security related, in particular.
    Moreover if it's 'sniffing before more'.
    If BlackBerry uses a particular technology that is not of their own, it has to be exclusive. On the other way, if it is, they probably need a partner to spread it to others Android makers, as a 'blackbox'.
    Make your bets...
    But I'm still wondering why this partnership had to be secret and what's the direction... after all we only had a grand total : it could be either revenues or expenses. Which could explain why they did not disclose amounts... (talk about a weird thought, but you know...)
    Can't wait until Friday

    If you don't own share(s) in BlackBerry, please don't come on here pessimism. We have BlackBerry stock in portfolio for different reasons, but #1 is business/profit.

    The one between JC and SF ;-)
    Jokes apart, I believe he is talking about the Google partnership or Samsung partnership..Generally speaking the partnership that is making BlackBerry (we are hoping so) one of the main actor in the 'Securing Android' impossible mission!

    Could our friend SF be referring to this?

    CEO John Chen also noted a second licensing deal during the quarter with a “major technology provider” that for contract reasons he was unable to name.

    was that income (from the second source) accounted for in the last quarter or yet to be seen in this earning report?

    I am not sure we have enough information to enable us to give any form of conclusive answer to your question, sidhuk, since details were not given (in the PR, 6-K, etc.) either for Cisco or for the second mysterious partner.

    I think we can presume that BB got some revenue but what revenue precisely and wherefrom are anybody's guess at this point, I think.

    Others who know better will correct me if I am wrong.

    I thought that was an IP licensing deal ? Because it was discussed in that context in the last earnings call.

    Related to the Kernel version we can see on this leaked image (props to Android Authority/BerryFlow)
    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-blackberry-venice-leak-2-bbos-1js.jpg

    The Android version on this device is 5.1.1 and the kernel that is using Grsecurity
    Grsecurity is an extensive security enhancement to the Linux kernel that defends against a wide range of security threats through intelligent access control, memory corruption-based exploit prevention, and a host of other system hardening that generally require no configuration. It has been actively developed and maintained for the past 14 years. Commercial support for grsecurity is available through Open Source Security, Inc.

    I made some digging and tried to figure a little more about this
    BlackBerry will begin proof of concept trials in November for their IoT asset tracking box | CrackBerry.com

    And then wondered what IoT transmission protocol they will use ...
    For that type of devices and battery life, you need to use low speed frequencies/protocols.
    There's a war ramping right now and standards are far to emerge.
    Providing an end to end solution may be a real opportunity here for those currently balancing the different technologies ...

    And then I found CISCO is a member of LORA Alliance (https://www.lora-alliance.org) and I wonder if we don't have to make a link here with the patents deal and the "hidden" new partner ...

    Yes. But we have no clue how it balanced. I mean it can be cross-licensing, as in 'inject some BlackBerry secret receipt' within an existing solution ... That's what I meant.
