    There probably isn't one. And development costs (R&D) in Canada get tax rebates.

    lolllll crackberry economics at its best.

    Those losses are real.

    When bb marketshare in a particular market was from 20%-30%. And is now in single digits, that loss is real.

    When bb reported declining subscription base for BES, that loss is real.

    When bb reported revenue was around $1 billion to $120 million, that loss is real

    We are NOT speaking of Market Losses here, we are speaking of losses on a Device /OS level/ Structure . The biggest loss being the inventory left at the Z10 launch fiasco.

    Which incidentally was nowhere near the 10 billion dollars that's being bandied about.

    The new reality is BlackBerry has to lower expectations and not hold large inventory. Which I believe is what they are doing. Especially with respect to BlackBerry 10.

    Are there BB10 devices still in production? The reason Chen said the Classic is out of production would ultimately affect the LEAP also... leaving only the Passport... which while popular here, hasn't been shown to be a big enterprise fleet device.

    Problem is you have to make orders for components ahead of time you have to make production agreements that are usually based on volume. And that's why it took six months to "launch" the PRIV... BlackBerry and even Carrier's weren't all that sure of what the sales rates would be. Even with caution, one of AT&T retailers (or they themselves) guessed wrong and ended up fire selling a portion of their inventory, and thus we have these $420 - $500 Privs on Amazon.

    Going forward I think they need to limit the number of SKUs (either by combining more radios in one, or dropping some markets), and move to a single source (themselves) for buying devcies.
