    The conclusion first: I don't think it is feasible.

    How can BlackBerry monetize BB10?
    - Licensing ? Windows phone 10 which has a better app situation and is practically given for free is not currently very successful.
    - suddenly so many people are buying BlackBerry handsets that Chen is changing his mind.
    - Nothing else comes to my mind

    The easiest way? Buy a few million BB10 handsets. That already is about it, another way would getting more big game companies completely switching to BB10, but I can't see this happening.
    Licensing has been tried under Heins already, nobody is interested. Not surprising: There are already other smaller mobile OS out there, like Sailfish, Tizen, Firefox OS and even Windows Phone which fail to gain noticeable traction. So it's not surprising there are no companies interested in BB10.

    As many people have already pointed out already and John Chen himself bb10 isn't going anywhere. The fact that organisations and governments use it shows its not going away. It just may not have several releases every year of phones. I'm confident by next year there will be another all touch bb10 phone, it's just gonna take them some time.

    Patience people patience

    Sorry, no support from me. This is a dying platform. One $500 Verizon Z30 is enough. Won't get fooled again!

    No, at least in Canada BlackBerry 10 app situation is better.


    I looked into switching to Windows Phone but I can't since I would have to give up support for
    - my bank (CIBC)
    - Pebble watch
    - Bluetooth keyboard/Mouse app (Blue Touch)


    Not to mention Crackberry, which is not on the Windows Store.


    The BlackBerry 10 app situation only gets better once you add in the availability of Android support.

    Launching a blackberry phone with Android. People will get information about It and realize that BlackBerry still exists. It will put in the light the other BlackBerry phones with BB10.
    Some of these people will buy cheaper BlackBerry phones as Leap or Classic.
    So BB10 and Priv (for who can afford it) will coexists.

    BlackBerry main problem up to now is its lack of marketing... Priv will make that.
