    I think they could definitely sell them cheaper than a carrier, the problem with high-end phones though is that they would cost a lot and probably many people wouldn't buy that.

    Another problem with that is that developers would definitely not create any apps for BlackBerry but as long as we have the android runtime, oh well...

    There is nothing new in Chen' comment. Go back to the first earnings call he was on, he said the exact same thing.

    Nothing to see here, but here comes the drama

    Stay positive, it's all gonna work out. They are still ahead of plan, as per Chen's statement during the last earnings call.

    "No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

    It's "spin" to say that BB will have to repay the $1.25B of cash they borrowed, one way or the other? Yes, the debt CAN be converted to shares IF the LENDER decides to do so (at a share price of over $10), but if the price never hits that, then what? Where have I "spun" anything? This is basic financing. No one hands out $1.25B for nothing.

    I believe the interest on the $1.25Bn loan is 6%.

    So, as you say, Prem ain't doing it for free.

    And, a debenture loan is indeed debt... The clue is in the use of the word "loan".
