    Rumors and leaks of the BlackBerry 10 Porsche designed phone sends out confusing signals. BlackBerry has plunged to 1% of US sales and is in dire need of a marketing triumph there. People are being laid off, including in research and development. They can't get the specs right with the A10.

    So what do they do? Plan to release an elitist product without mass appeal.

    It's akin to if a house was in bad need of repairs such as plumbing, electrical, foundation, shingles, siding...and the owner chooses to install marble floors.

    Get your house in order first, BlackBerry!

    BlackBerry has lost its mind trying to play in 2-3 % of market and then dreaming of gaining market share

    Firstly, people expect a Porsche Design BB10.

    Secondly, as stated, Porsche is the one using their resources to do this mostly, BlackBerry is providing information and assistance. I don't see the harm in this if it has little marginal cost, which it does.

    And third, USA is not the center of the world. This phone will sell elsewhere where BlackBerry is still the thing. I'm thinking EMEA, and more specifically around Dubai area where the 9981 was first sold. BlackBerry would be foolish to ignore other markets, as it would be foolish to ignore USA.

    Fourth, we've only seen leaks so far, nothing unveiled, and we don't know where they will sell it first.

    It's the center of the consumer electronics world.
