    is it possible for optiemus to do some kind of handover of the os updates to BBmo if they decide to stop all connections with BlackBerry.

    bought the Key2 and was sent the india variant, and I haven't seen updates available.

    can't send back phone.

    Possible? Yes. Probability of it happening? Slim to none.

    There is a chance that BlackBerry wins their messaging lawsuits, gets Billions from most every major player today. And has so much money stilling around that they decide to give BB10 and smartphones a chance again... and of course forces all those social apps to support BB10 as part of the settlement.

    But we are talking about possibilities that even Mr. Spock couldn't give you a number on...

    Pretty sure there's a greater chance of Bill Gates sharing his wealth with us, than a BB10 Phoenix rebirth!

    What odds are you giving to Bill Gates philanthropically supporting BB10 to peeve Apple or Google just because he can?

    Hahaha, wouldn't that be something! Odds I think would be about 100,000,000 to 1! Conservative estimate!

    It looks like Optiemus has already given up.

    Sure, TCL might take up the Indian license, but right now they seem to have production on such a small scale that they might not want to take it on at this time.

    As far as commissioning updates for existing Optiemus owners -- they did not do anything for owners of the DTEKs past the two years of support that BlackBerry gave them, so ......

    So you hope that BBMo will take the responsibility after Optiemus took the money?

    The branding on the back of the Alcatel 3 includes “TCL Communications Ltd” below the Alcatel logo. Signs of possibly inching away from the house of brands strategy? I just thought this tidbit was interesting.

    What designates BBMo a failure like Optiemus and Merah Putih have failed? Not to argue tallest midget or anything...
