    Here is some good news for BlackBerry. This is of course related to their increase in patent filings.

    "The intense competition in the smartphone space is on clear display in this year's Top 100 Global Innovators list, with the major players in the smartphone patent wars present: Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, Google and BlackBerry. This is the first year for BlackBerry on the Top 100 Innovators list, driven by a 38 percent surge in patent filings between 2010 and 2011, and 17 percent growth in patent filings between 2011 and 2012. The rapid expansion of the company's patent portfolio is certain to be a factor in BlackBerry's recently-announced plans to pursue strategic alternatives, including a possible sale."

    "Desperation is the mother of invention"

    Too be honest, once you get thru the learning curve with the BB10 and get a few sideloaded apps working.... it is a really good OS!

    As of patent fillings.... who know how much of that is just for "protection" purposes, and how much is real innovation?

    I think the actual expression is:

    "necessity is the mother of invention" not desperation. Although I'm sure in Blackberry's case it was desperation.

    I think a lot of this has to do with the new 10os.
