    Hi all and merry Christmas to everyone. I don't post very often but i read this forum several time a day. Thank you for everything.

    I have a question regarding Priv sales, i read somewhere that BB waits 14 days after a consumer buy the phone, in order to pass the return time period, before counting it as sold. If true we had 24 - 14 = 10 days of Priv sales in Q3 instead of 24 days. Is this right? Anyone can confirm that? If this is true, Priv sales could be better that expected.
    Canadian Carriers have the 15 day grace period, or the 30 minutes talk time, or 50 mb of data usage before its considered not returnable. This is my understand and assume BlackBerry has something comparable to such thing. So it can be one day to fifteen days and will be hard to calculate without knowing each case. So if a consumer uses 51 mb of data then it is not returnable. I do recall something about BlackBerry waits for the activation of the phone and likely waits for this grace period or the other two to happen. I could be wrong.

    FWIW/Rumour:
    ? BlackBerry Priv Android 6.0 OTA ?? MWC 2016 ???? | BlackBerryNotesHK ???

    Original in Chinese. Edited (by myself) GT version. If there are native Chinese speakers amongst us, feel free to correct and improve

    BlackBerry Priv now comes preloaded with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. BlackBerry will release an official upgraded Priv Android 6.0 Marshmallow version during Mobile World Congress (MWC) next year.

    BlackBerry Priv Android 6.0 upgrade is being planned as the new machine has already been released. BlackBerry executives said the upgrade is already in preparation and is expected early next year. The latest rumors call for Priv Android 6.0 OTA update to become official at MWC in February next year. In addition to Android 6.0 update, BBRY have the opportunity to usher in the first official price reduction as well as a new BlackBerry smartphone in MWC 2016 (BlackBerry Vienna).
    Would make sense and looking forward to it!

    Samsung risks becoming another BlackBerry

    JEREMY WAGSTAFF AND SE YOUNG LEE
    SINGAPORE and SEOUL — Reuters

    Samsung risks becoming another BlackBerry - The Globe and Mail

    "Efforts to revive its once stellar smartphone fortunes may be doomed if Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. cannot overcome its dominant engineering culture, according to serving and former executives and those who have dealt with the company.

    This culture, they say, has stymied many previous efforts to develop software and service platforms to support the smartphone business. In the past year, several such services have closed down, at least one of them within a year of being launched.

    “There’s a lot of distrust of top executives who can actually implement stuff that is more of a software and services offering,” said one person familiar with the company’s inner workings. “It’s still ‘we know how to sell boxes, we sell boxes.’”

    Growth in handset sales is slowing as the smartphone market matures and, without its own distinctive software, content and services, Samsung has little to differentiate itself from other Android phone makers selling similar devices at lower prices.

    Samsung points to the launch of its mobile payments service, Samsung Pay, and its home control “Internet of things” platform, SmartThings, as among the signs it has learned from its past.

    But this may not be enough.

    Interviews with former and serving employees paint a picture of confusion and overlap between competing divisions, where the short-term interests of promoting hardware trump long-term efforts to build platforms that would add value for customers and increase their loyalty to the brand.

    One said he only learned from someone outside the company that the hands-free app his team was updating for the upcoming Galaxy S4 launch had competition – from inside Samsung. For the manager, who has since left the company but declined to be identified because his present employer does business with Samsung, it was one of many examples of the low priority the hardware-minded company placed on software, which was treated as little more than a marketing tool inside the firm.

    “Samsung’s upper management just inherently doesn’t understand software,” the former employee said. “They get hardware – in fact, they get hardware better than anyone else. But software is a completely different ball game.”

    As a result, critics say, initiatives involving software or services languish and often fail.

    Despite being preinstalled on Galaxy phones, Samsung’s Chat-ON messaging service gained few adherents and closed without fanfare in March, while the Milk Video app, a high-profile project run by newly hired U.S. executives, lasted a year, closing in November.

    To be sure, Samsung’s struggles are hardly unique – firms such as HTC Corp., Nokia Corp. and BlackBerry Ltd. also failed in their attempt to develop viable platforms.

    Samsung overcame a late start in smartphones but remains the No.1 player: Researcher TrendForce says that, this year, it will have shipped about 100 million more than No. 2 Apple Inc.

    But former and serving executives say Samsung has failed to support innovation within the company, shrinking margins to stay competitive while losing ground to rivals.

    Some investors and analysts say worries about Samsung’s decline are overstated, pointing to its dominance in memory chips and displays. Its foray into automotive components also has promise, analysts say.

    But this is unlikely to revive the explosive earnings growth its smartphones delivered at the beginning of the decade.

    What’s needed, according to Chang Sea-jin, a business professor at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, is strong backing for a push into software and services from Samsung Group heir apparent Jay Y. Lee.

    “There are signs that Samsung is trying to change and the company is acknowledging its failures,” Mr. Chang said. “The company is moving in the right direction, but there is a high probability this is too little, too late.”"

    My two cents worth!

    Next BlackBerry/Android phone should be updated Passport.

    Next BB10 (IF) phone should be an updated Priv.

    If this is confirmed, it's a good news as most of the pre-orders were delayed and i guess they shipped more Priv in the last week of November then in the first week of sales.

    What's up with Walmart?

    My concern is with Walmart.com as they are showing January 4th for pickup across Michigan and I still haven't been notified that I can get a phone shipped to me. Can anyone find a phone available across the US or have they bought one from Walmart? We look like we are still backed up here.
