    BB made a whole new platform.

    They acquired the UI company, an OS, an MDM solution, an appstore, etch (List of mergers and acquisitions by BlackBerry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). They had a unique and priavte network and pedgiree of security.

    Yet somehow they were resting on their laurels. Yet somehow they grew their users base YOY until very recently. While every other mobile company since 2008 did nothing.

    This is reality. We've read all the articles. We've seen a relenteless effort by the haters bashing RIM/BB and being ignorant to the reality of business and how technology evolves, just showing their blind love for the other platforms.

    BB has always kept moving. It would be nice if the others companies would. Cause things are getting stagnant and its bad for the consumer when its only one company moving.

    My main point is BB has done something impressive. while the mobile world stood around happy with the paradigm change that apple created. BB is changing things and its the other companies who need a fire under their efforts.

    In all honesty saying companies like Samsung and Google with Android have done nothing is a little far fetched.

    Really like your points. It's been so frustrating reading the negativity over the last two years when it comes to BlackBerry. Yes, obviously they had to turn it around. But why can't they be given credit where credit is do?
