    It makes sense to market the PRIV, but not BB10.

    No amount of marketing is going to convince millions of Android and iOS users to abandon those well-established app and media ecosystems and all the money they've invested in them - no matter how amazing the hardware or OS might be.

    It's hard to imagine BlackBerry changing its marketing policy. They are now investing a lot in software contracts and cross-platform systems for their QNX. I don't think they would abandon the hardware division for real as they need it, in my opinion, to develop the tools they are integrating in cars and such. But selling smart phones is not where blackberry is aiming anymore to get their "big money".

    Not fools, just people who understand maths. A big advertising budget plus expanding purchase commitments would likely destroy the company. A big advertising budget without expanding purchase commitments is just pointless.

    This little caterpillar just needs time to morph into the enterprise software butterfly Chen and the board really believe in.

    While marketing might help increase visibility I don't see it being cost effective in increased handset sales. While the Priv is a nice device with some unique features it doesn't compete spec wise in the "my cpu is faster than yours" Android market place.

    To really increase market share they need to compete in all facets of the handset that most Android purchasers care about AND market effectively.

    CPU / GPU
    Price
    Screen
    Battery Life

    For the majority of Android users BlackBerry hasent differentiated themselves to stay competitive.

    Also, for the BB10 converts the things they care about are reduced in functionality enough to just **** them off.

    HUB Especially (no native TXTing)
    Battery Life
    Fluidity of the OS

    The things BlackBerry is good at, security and keyboard, the larger market doesn't really care about.

    One more thing. Chen's job is to make the company survive. Not BB10. Not the Handset business. The company. Whether we like it or not he's well on the way to making that a reality.

    No. Save the cash. They won't be making phones at all at some point. We all know that. Or should by now. As a shareholder I can't see blowing the cash as a good thing.

    The caterpillar was just about to morph into a beautiful BB10 butterfly when BOOM! the unexplained happened and it turned into a gaudy android moth.
    There's no prince of marketing whose kiss can turn an android moth into the butterfly it could have been.
