    Okay, so we were all HYPED UP last year with Mr. Heins. Good ol' and former passionate Kevin had many interviews with him.

    I don't like it, that when he left we all should forget him. Hell, he even get himself a Canadian passport along with his German one. So what is Heins doing???

    Did he really accept millions of bucks from BlackBerry go step down?

    Is he reading the forums here? Is he contacting Kevin sometimes. Or was he just a Fraud ?

    Most importantly : will he buy a Passport or Classic in your view?

    Long live Thorsten Heins

    I always felt he was genuinely enthusiastic for BlackBerry and eager to please in his first CEO role. Sure, he miscalculated on Z10 sales, but I blame poor marketing for that. As for putting BlackBerry on sale, I blame the Board for that; It's not something a CEO just does on his own. Anyway, I hope he and Mike are given whatever the latest devices are, kinda like Woz getting the latest Apple products. (I think Jim should buy his own devices since he pretty much vacated BlackBerry by dumping all his shares.)

    Lol, hadn't given that a thought
    Well he said he'll always be rooting and cheering for BlackBerry from the sideline and if he holds true to his words, he'll probably buy one if these devices or be given one

    I have wondered if the classic and passport started development under Thorsten (even in back of a napkin form) or if they started only after Chen arrived.

    Thorsten was paid to fuc* BlackBerry up. Because other companies smelled the big potential of BlackBerry. Qnx is probably the main reason. Then TH stepped down once he got the money.

    Maybe one of these other phone company wants to have qnx. Lol

    ...my opinion.

    I think BlackBerry showed a road map last year. And I think passport is the R10 (redesigned). No classic there.

    Are we saying here that the Passport is Thorsten's child and the Classic is Chen's?

    Yes actually. It seemed that the Passport, or at least some early variant of it has been in the world for a whole.

    But the classic has been something that Chen pushed for.

    We knew for a long time they were working on a higher end Qwerty. The name Q30 was thrown around a lot.

    The classic came outta nowhere kinda, and it really is, imo, a Q10 with toolbelt

    It's a Gundam!

    I was looking at some videos on Bloomberg. He says he picked the Passport

    Powermat CEO Heins on Growth Strategy, BlackBerry: Video - Bloomberg

    He actually takes some credit in saying he laid the foundation for the strategy Chen is implementing.
