    A week or two ago I noticed that the link on BlackBerry's website for BB Merah Putih no longer worked.... But then Opitemus website was down for over month last year, so it's hard to say what that means.

    But the Aurora was a flop and BB Merah Putih has made no effort to update it in a long time. And there has been no clue of anything new coming from them. Sorta expected them to pickup the Evolve and Evolve X (which is MIA too).

    Reality is the BlackBerry TAX is very expensive and just not well suited for some markets in anything but a limited capacity. I expect Opitemus will soon be over with too...

    Probably did not help matters that in the last 2 years there was at least 10 pct devaluation of the Indonesian currency vs. the dollar (as with several other emerging market currencies)
    I assume they had to pay e.g. the license fee to BBRY in US $ while most of the revenue (from device sales) was made in local ccy.

    That sounds very complimentary to Chen and his business acumen.

    Certainly if you asked Sybase or BlackBerry, being Chenned is almost a miracle.

    I thought buying BlackBerry Aurora was a mistake, the company went bankrupt and there was also no autoloader

    Some see what Chen did to "their" BlackBerry and BB10 as a negative....

    They refuse to believe that BlackBerry would have went bankrupt. And that without him (and Prem) the Passport, Classic and LEAP might not have even made it to the market.

    Chen did mislead BB10 users, as he was prepared for ending BB10 while releasing those and talking about it's future. But whats a guy to do with 100 gross of self-sealing stem bolts....


    As for BB Merah Puthih... now even BlackBerry's Blog about them has been pulled. Looking like they are history, not that they have done anything after the Aurora.

    I get that. I just don’t understand how someone thinks BBMP failure is Chen’s fault...

    Some still think Chen's making the phones... he is the face of BlackBerry and these are "BlackBerry" devices. Who else are they going to blame... Bla1ze? Not like there really is much of a "face" to go with the three two licensees...

    They are both shutting down from what I'm hearing, my buddy from India sad BlackBerry failed big time there. He also says BlackBerry Mobile here is shutting the door also which is what I have read and also keep hearing. I can't get a straight answer from BlackBerry Mobile either.. You think if it weren't true they would sure be saying so.. I believe TCL is pulling the plug. They probably give more devices away then they sold lol

    I hope Bla1ze will cover that in the main news page.
    He already covered Aurora release in Indonesia. So why don't we have an official story from Crackberry?
