    Lol

    you've been made privy to my thoughts.
    ... By the way, an open handed slap on the mug is way more degrading. Nice find.

    Not sure which I like better between your pic and BBJ's monkey kiss, but this thread is a good one.

    Judas Priest men! 12 pages to catch up on in two days!?

    Just a quick one to say big congratulations to the longs and even the steel-balled individuals who bought pre-ER.

    M8 - much like your wife, because my better half also dislikes our huge investment in BlackBerry, due to your generous BlackBerry stock TA helping many of us out, I think you have become my wife's secret admirer.

    Behave man! I am watching you!

    Hey everyone, long time lurker here.

    If they sold 700,000 total devices this quarter at $315 ASP, 800,000 last quarter at $240 ASP. I am sure we can derive how many Privs were sold during the quarter to have increased the ASP by 31%. Taking into account a small percentage of capitalization of BB10.

    Any mathematicians willing to take a stab at it.

    Not a mathematicians. But let me take a stab at it:

    We know, devices sold 700,000 at $315 ASP = $ 225 Million

    Assumption 1: Assuming 100K Priv devices @ $ 525 ASP gives $52.5 Million.
    Which leaves us with $172.5 Million from non-PRIV devices.
    ASP of NON PRIV is $240. 172.5/$240 = 718,000. Which is MORE than the total number sold.

    Assumption 2: Assuming 150K devices = $78.75M
    Which leaves us with $146.25 Million from non-PRIV devices.
    ASP of NON PRIV is $240. 146.25/$240 = 609,000. But 609k+150K=759K . Which is still more than total numbers sold.

    Assumption 3: Assuming 200K devices = $105M
    Which leaves us with $120Million from non-PRIV devices.
    ASP of NON PRIV is $240. $120M/$240 = 500,000 non-priv devices. And 200K Priv device.

    This assumption 3 works.

    So, if ASP for PRIV is $525, they sold about 200,00 PRIV.

    If ASP is much higher (say, $600), they'd have sold much less than 200k.

    I don't know share market.. I don't know how it works..but I wanted to buy shares for a sincere company which is known for innovation for the best interest of customers .. I'm awaiting a success story of blackberry in coming few months.. I know it will happen for sure..


    Everyone likes blackberry and bb10.. but they never played a strategy to acquire customers interest.. but with the launch of priv it is a clear picture to me.. they started thinking strategist .. an android phone lover who hates blackberry for its OS started buying priv..just because he loves blackberry phone but not OS.. in fact they hate BlackBerry os just for the reason they don't know how it works.. if they experience bb10 os they will definitely go mad..

    To conclude, good days ahead and I agree with thread starter.. I want to buy blackberry shares just not because I love BlackBerry but I believe in their strategy.. it's gonna work

    Don't judge me for opinion on their poor marketing but my question, if you'd relay it to them, is around marketing.:

    Are we going to see a large, coordinated marketing campaign? When I say marketing, I am talking specifically about advertising. Eg: TV ads during prime-time running multiple times (not just one commercial in one show). Re-enforced by billboard ads and subway platform takeovers (Eg: plastering Bay street station in Toronto, stations around Wall Street in NYC with BlackBerry PRIV imagery etc).

    Most new BlackBerry PRIV ads seem very poorly designed. BB doesn't seem to be following its own branding guidelines. Basic no-no like not mixing multiple fonts in a design are not being adhered to. Feels very amateur. Like someone created a flyer at home using MS Paint or PowerPoint for 'lost dog' or 'garage sale'

    Some black & white ads also seem creepy and do not convey the message properly.

    If money/budget is a concern for coming up with an awesome integrated print/internet-ad campaign, perhaps you could simply CROWDSOURCE it on some crowdsourcing site? For example: Award $50,000 and run a competition on 99DESIGNS.com

    - the winner would need to come up with a set of banner ads, print ads, website design etc. You could run multiple competitions like that on 99Designs or similar sites and come up with multiple ad/branding campaigns. You can try out each campaign and promote whichever campaign gives you the best results.

    So to estimate the units sold for this Q, we need to make three assumptions (or data):

    1. What is the % BB10 solid unit drops comparing to the last Q?
    2. What is the % ASP drops for the sold BB10 unit comparing to the last Q?
    3. What is the realistic ASP for the Priv?

    Please give your assumptions and I will update the estimation in my excel sheet.

    I wish blackberry should launch this add..

    My vision

    Person1: sits before a TV on a chair with remote
    Person2: stands on a floor next to him
    Person1 : Plays a channel.. full energetic dance.. he nodes his head in parallel to the dance
    Person2: actually dances in the same way the person dances in TV show
    Person1: gets upset..and changes different channel.. other dance show
    Person2: simulates same just on the floor with his sheer talent

    It repeats and so on

    Person1: lost his temper and asks person2.. who are u

    Person2: asks same question

    Persion1: says I'm XYZ

    Persion2 : says I'm blackberry.. real experience
