    A joint venture with Panasonic. They aren't in the phone biz, and they can offer an Android phone for sale in China and elsewhere while BlackBerry stays its course.

    Thoughts?

    Interesting. I personally like their Lumix series of Cameras. Maybe they can improve Blackberry's tradition of "meh" average cameras.

    I still think HTC would be the best partner. They build EXCELLENT phones but cant seem to get any traction in the Android marketplace. Having them build the hardware and having BB10 on there would be a great differentiator. (I pitched this nearly 2 years ago lol)

    Totally understandable. I think it's a case of bringing two companies and their patents together for synergy. BES + Lumia camera etc.

    I did say Panasonic wasn't a phone producer, my bad. But clearly they haven't been doing a good job in NA.

    I thought Panasonic was exiting the mobile phone business, well in Europe anyway.
