    Is it just me, or are the bears out in force over the Z10? Being a Canadian out of country right now, I can't see first hand anything going on with the Z10 being on sale, so I punched into Google news a search for Blackberry, and below are the results:

    ...and so on. I know, I know, there's not a "conspiracy" but it really sounds like the bears are getting a fair amount of press.

    Yeh, there are still lots of wall street shorters that have good connections with medias spreading these kind of articles. You can say you prefer something to OS 10, sure but to say its utter trash is just really idiotic. The media were all together bashing RIM before launch, not surprised some still do it. BBRY just needs to keep head straight and do their best, eventually all the bashing will go on someone else.

    Shorters are usually people with more rather than less money because of the nature of how shorting works. You're selling stock that you don't own, which means that you are trading on margin, which means that you have to assets or cash somewhere to cover just in case you made a bad decision. Because of this, shorters will usually have better connections to media/PR people.

    Yeah, suppose you're all right. I was just hoping for some good news stories after years of being beat up on in the media.
