    I remember John Chen said a while ago that investors will be satisfied in one year. When was that?

    BlackBerry isn't competing with the AOBRD (ELD) market. Those units don't monitor trailers, just trucks. I'm fairly sure BlackBerry has done their research with regards to this since the FMCSA has mandated that all trucks on the road must be equipped with them in the near future. Trailer tracking, although others do it, is a different segment of the market as trailers aren't tied into the other systems, they can't provide assistance with drop trailer systems nor stolen trailers, which is a serious problem in the industry. I'm not saying it's an under served segment, but the options available are expensive, are intermittent with their pings, and easily removed by any thief worth his salt. And just to add, the solution BlackBerry seems to be offering is more feature rich, from my cursory glance.

    I was also under the impression this device will also monitor Temps, humidity too (unless I'm mistaken). These are key measurements to ensure that the contents have been held at proper Temps and humidty the entire journey
    Frozen goods need to be kept frozen, not frozen then thawed and frozen again...but without a sensor with continuous data, this would be hard to prove

    Good luck to all in less than 12 hours

    If it's Corbu's friend above on the beach doing the flogging, I'll stand in for you just this one time!

    Seems like there are a few good signs out there, lets hope JC brings it all home for us tomorrow and end the week with a happy cold one, one and all!

    Excited for tomorrow's news!
    I'm hopeful for good numbers all around. We know software is solid, Priv numbers seem moderate to mildly successful and we always have the IP wildcards. I'm still a big believer in Chen being a financial engineer, so if all three are strong, we are back; he won't let one part of the company get too big if it allows for future disappointment.

    Who knows on news? Could be partnerships, new products (hopefully a phone!), more stock buybacks, an acquisition. There is just so much going on at BlackBerry, that it's nearly guaranteed to be exciting.

    No matter what, it's been a great last three months here and the experience is worth more than the money I have invested. Thanks to the regulars for all your contributions, and good luck to all tomorrow!

    Not a whole lot, judging from past wins and their effect on Blackberry device sales. These matchups are a big joke.
    But at least in this case, I see the two best phones here as the Priv and the Lumia. You could say the same for the Lumia device and their lack luster sale, but that doesn't discount it as being a gorgeous piece.
    I'll take one of each please.

    Hey fellas,
    Here we are again, at that time...
    Nothing to add, but I think this ER will glean a bit of both hope and respect. I really don't see it as being a flop like some (late comers) here are motioning.

    Talk again on the other side of this.
    Oh, and FWIW: (gulp!)

    BlackBerry Reports Software and Services Growth of 106 Percent for Q4 and 113 Percent for Fiscal 2016



    Company Reports Positive Free Cash Flow for Eighth Consecutive Quarter and Positive EBITDA for Ninth Consecutive Quarter

    The full report here : BlackBerry Reports Software and Services Growth of 106 Percent for Q4 and 113 Percent for Fiscal 2016
    I like this part
    32% for software and services, 29% for service access fees (SAF), and 39% for hardware and other revenue
    Need explanations about this (bolded); do we read "buy-back program" ?
    Basic GAAP net loss reflects a purchase accounting impact of $23 million on GAAP revenue, a non-cash credit associated with the change in the fair value of the debentures of $40 million (the "Q4 Fiscal 2016 Debentures Fair Value Adjustment"), pre-tax charges of $192 million related to restructuring and acquisition costs, stock compensation of $17 million, and amortization of acquired intangibles of $28 million.
    oops, not, sry
    and $36 million used to repurchase 5 million shares
    Finally ... (sry guys, editing while reading lol)
    We more than doubled our software and licensing revenue in Q4 and exceeded our target of $500 million for the full year.
    Fasten seat belts or shall we see the party downers back in force ?

    Bottom line:
    Questions ...
    - What's the HW+others revenue split for BB10/Android/IoT-QNX (mark : $100mil.+ / year for automotive alone ...)
    - What's the current deployment sate for Priv (countries (what abt the 30+ Feb. target/ Why) + carriers)

    Not a great ER. Software is going well, but hardware is continuing to decline. Everyone is going to jump on the fact that revenue continues to decrease

    It's actually closer to $190M, isn't it? Still not great.

    I like the software gains. I'd like to know how much of that is organic, of course. If you believe software and services are the future, then I think you have to be pretty content with these results. It's in the right direction at least.

    Hardware purchase commitments are down, which is good news IMO.

    How do you calculate this number ?

    But they still have 168M in purchase commitments. Maybe they won't officially announce getting out of phones until they can dwindle this down another quarter....I though they said Priv was selling in magnitudes of previous BlackBerry launch. Passport sold 250K it's first quarter. Priv should have sold minimum 400K and bb10 200K. Head scratcher.
