    Tell me you're kidding. If it's going back to $13, it better wait until I have funds available. lol
    See I don't see it, unless there's some more bear antics in the works on Thurs.
    BBRY dropped slightly again abit ago but found support at $14.80. Again working on the premise of higher lows then where we
    were a month back etc.

    Hopefully they'll let it be now. I wouldn't want to see it fall another dollar now. However, with zilch for good news it might continue to slide.

    Don't under estimate the long term chart it's still in a uptrend, higher highs and higher lows. At this point BB is the only one that can cause a major drift down with a bad ER in June. I believe the bears/shorts are starting to realize BB is here to stay, it will just take time with a few good ER's.

    Canadian Tire CTO impressed with BlackBerry Q10's long battery life

    Toronto company deploys thousands of Blackberries to corporate employees

    .

    Computerworld - Canadian Tire began issuing thousands of BlackBerry Q10 smartphones to corporate employees in Toronto on Monday after rolling out Z10 models weeks earlier.

    The overwhelming majority of the company's 3,000 corporate users wanted the Q10 with its qwerty keyboard as a replacement for older Bold or Curve devices, said Eugene Roman, chief technology offer at Toronto-based Canadian Tire, in an interview. However, some are also asking for the Z10, with its touchscreen keyboard.

    Canadian Tire bought the new devices for its employees, Roman said. The company isn't convinced that a Bring Your Own Device model, where workers buy their own smartphones to use at work, is secure enough. "BYOD is very interesting until the first security breach," Roman said. "I'm not a fan of BYOD. An email can send a virus into your core infrastructure. Right now, we think BYOD is interesting, but not ready for the main stream."

    So far, hands down, the biggest value of the new Z10 and Q10 smartphones has been their long battery life, providing 10 to 12 hours on a single charge, Roman said. "With 10 to 12 hours of battery life, that's double of every other device we've tried," he said. "It's efficient on the network and still has good security. The battery life is the winner. I have a couple of iPhones, but I can't live on them."

    Many workers are familiar with older BlackBerry smartphones and wanted the physical keyboard. Roman said he has used a BlackBerry Bold model for years and has been reluctant to replace it.

    "I told them you'd have to pry the Bold from my cold dead hands, since it has served me extremely well, but the Q10 does it one better," he said. The Q10's 35 keys are each "just a shade bigger" than on the Bold "and I have big, fat thumbs."

    Since Roman has a strong interest in following the quick-changing Canadian weather, he found he relies on the Q10's native weather app, which he has used for more than a full week, along with email and texting.

    Canadian Tire also uses Balance, a dual-personality feature where work and personal data are kept in separate areas on the BlackBerry 10 operating system. If needed, an IT shop could wipe clean the work data from a lost or stolen device and leave the personal data intact. The company supports Balance on the Q10 and Z10 with a backend server running BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

    "Balance is a good idea, and I started using it last week," Roman said. "It's quite interesting how it keeps your life simple. Everybody has a personal email, so my kids can send me messages there. I got insurance for my car and don't want that email going to my work email. So Balance makes things nice and clean. These smartphones are ports into the company."
    Roman said he also likes the Hub concept of organizing all email and texts and other incoming information into one universal in-box that can be revealed with a touch on the 3.1-in. touchscreen above the keyboard.

    "The Q10 is all about the user experience, and I find that the Hub is extremely useful, that it organizes my life and is like the old PDA, but the Q10 plays that role on steroids," he said.

    Roman predicted the Q10 will be a "huge hit" with hard-core qwerty keyboard users. Already, many employees at the 1,700 Canadian Tire retail stores under various brands such as FGL Sports are requesting a new Z10 or Q10. "The Q10 is an amazing little device."

    Canadian Tire has also launched a BlackBerry mobile app for consumers to browse the company's products online, locate stores and check product availability that received 20 million mobile visits last year. Customers can use BlackBerry smartphones to scan barcodes in the store to read reviews and other information.

    The Z10 first became available in the U.S. in March and the Q10 is expected on four major U.S. carriers at the end of May at a suggested price of $249 plus contract, BlackBerry said. The Q10 first became available in Canada on May 1 for $199 with a three-year contract from wireless carriers Rogers, Bell Mobility and Telus.

    BlackBerry has tried to build momentum for its newest smartphones with major customer wins, but hasn't revealed early sales figures for the Q10. In late March, BlackBerry said it shipped 1 million Z10s in the fourth quarter.

    Among its corporate buyers of the new BlackBerry 10 smartphones, BlackBerry recently announced law firm Clifford Chance in the UK will issue 1,600 Z10s and Q10s to workers.

    10.1 Rolls out in the Philippines:

    Wondering when OS 10.1 for the BlackBerry Z10 would start rolling out? We are no longer wondering now, OS 10.1 for the BlackBerry Z10 has started to roll out in the Philippines! Now as you can see in the image it is OS 10.1.0.238, this is huge news for us Z10 owners that have been chomping at the bit on one question, do I load the leaked OS 10.1 or wait for the official 10.1? Well it will take some time before we start seeing it here in the states, but we now know it is coming sooner then later!

    Enjoyed that...and read it bon my Z10 using reader for the browser.

    I think what we are seeing here is an organized drop and heavy shake out so as many shorts as possible can cover at a lower price...this stock is going to skyrocket in the next couple years...awesomeness.

    A little treat from Canaccord via WSJ...

    "Canaccord says Apple Inc. (AAPL) captured 57% of global smartphone industry profits in the first quarter, while Samsung Electronics Co. (005930.SE) took the remaining 43%, leaving nothing for Research In Motion ($15.02, down 3.5%) or any other competitor in the smartphone arena. "

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-20130507bbry.jpg

    I feel that the stock is behaving normally based on its technical picture. I see a sinusoidal pattern with decreasing amplitude along a descending trendline (A) and ascending trendline (B). Without news, the pattern is playing into the pennant formation mentioned by MorganPlus8 and me on several occasions. What I think is interesting is that there might be a flat line (C) forming. If this takes over--effectively replacing the descending trendline (A), then we have a pattern known as an ascending triangle. Either way, a bullish continuation pattern is forming--that is, whether we're in a pennant (due to the coupled A and B lines) or we're in an ascending triangle (due to the coupled C and B lines), the stock is likely to break out to the upside. Based on this TA, I call a close of no lower than $13.75 and a breakout value of about $16.50 to the upside (both values would be day-close prices and not intraday prices). That's my conservative range for this stock.

    If you realize that TA reflects all trader sentiment outside of something newsworthy, then it is entirely normal behavior for the price to behave as it's behaving. No need to try to blame bears or some news story that no one can find. Once again, BBRY is a comeback story and if you believe in the company's potential for success (and don't most if not all of us here believe that?) then it's just a matter of time before it breaks out to the upside. That time could be days or weeks, depending on how extended the pennant or triangle becomes--and whether BBRY or TH state something regarding numbers.

    Finally, this story is still so new. We are a special-interest group, so it's sometimes hard to dissociate and realize that not everyone knows what BBRY is doing! I have spoken to some rather sophisticated engineers and several of them didn't know that there are new Blackberry phones and a revamped OS. And these guys are techies! So, I think a lot of people just know of the duopoly and see BBRY as an also-ran. I prefer to see BBRY as the last horse in the race that sprints to the finish line ahead of the others in an unexpected display of energy and power: our horse, it seems, is just rounding the first bend.

    I don't know why it's at 15 when it should be at 40. Why should 13 be a stretch of the imagination?

    Not surprised about the reports. My experience of buying the Q10 was woeful. EE (Orange and t-mobile in uk) hadn't heard of it on April 30 "but there was some guy in from blackberry" a few days ago. Vodafone said "don't you mean the Z10. O2 said they didn't know when it was coming but did have poster out the back so maybe soon. Today, in London, there is zero marketing - I walk straight past these shops on a daily basis, you would not know it's there. Carphone Warehouse said they were expecting (on April 30) a few in but there were only 800 in their warehouse for ALL the stores. Eventually I found a CW in Ken High Street that had one last Wednesday - but I wasn't allowed to buy it off contract as they only had that one and one other but I was welcome to try a demo unit that they had under the counter (still no display). They said I could go to Oxford Street to get one as they had 29 in stock. I did and I got one but blow me, what a pitiful role out!!

    Like a tap dancing mouse on my Q10

    I've been curious about this for some time, all this talk about the bears. It seems like whenever there is the beginning of a dip, half the posters on here sell their shares. Maybe it is you guys (and others like you) that are actually causing these wild swings? Not saying it is good or bad (I've done it myself a couple of times), but maybe there is just a less nefarious explanation for the swings.

    Never as simple as one answer (my personal motto).
    One simply cannot ignore the timing of certain articles in relationship to
    low volume, option xypry, etc. etc. Of course one cannot forget about
    fantom shares and other employed manipulation strategies. Meager selling
    from the average joe would just not be enough to cause in my opinion.

    Yup, I agree there is still a bit of downside. Wait for the turn before you jump in.
