    Several members, members who have been active on here for couple of years, are posting random threads saying BB10 is far from dead and that there will be two devices that will be coming out this year, etc etc. My question is who are these people's sources and is there any legitimacy to it?

    Because on one hand we have practically every CB member rolling on the ground crying "BB10 is dead" and then comes along these members with "inside sources" saying that two devices will be released this year.

    We all wish I guess, but there must be a reason why the mods have been shuting down all those threads.


    Nothing like my SE.

    Some of the members on here are very positive and sure on their claims. Seems like it's more than just wishful thinking.

    As other folks including myself have stated, I think the corporate numbers due out on April 1st will determine if any new devices will be launched or not.

    Because people can't stand the fact that the CEO has said there will be no new BB10 devices this year and there's very little Blackberry news relegated to handsets so the thread gets started. I haven't seen any by any people that have been here a couple of years though. Its usually newer members who like to come in and claim they know "upper management at Blackberry."

    Some of the members who have made such claims have been members for quite a few years. Then there's the BlackBerry Central crew that made such claims as well.

    If BB comes out with another BB10 device then I am going Passport the day it is announced. I am just hesitant to get deeper into the OS if it is going away. I have a classic and Z30 now so I am getting my BB10 fix

    Wishful thinking.

    and is there any legitimacy to it?
    No.

    then comes along these members with "inside sources" saying that two devices will be released this year.
    If they claim to have inside sources, they've either been lied to, or they themselves are lying.

    Could be that these members are just flat out lying.
    One possible motive is, just for the fun of making fools out of the more gullible members here.

    Perhaps you've heard of crop circles?

    Hmmmm... John Chen (CEO of BB) says that there will be NO new BB10 phones this year, just Android.

    On the other hand, some random anonymous poster on an internet forum says his mysterious high-level BB contacts told him, confidentially of course, that new BB10 phones are in-bound.

    So difficult! Who should I believe?! :face-palm:

    Curses! My evil plan is revealed!!!

    Oh well, back to creating fake alien crop circles for me... Folk who believe in them are *really* gullible and easier to convince than the BB10-rebirthers.

    I've seen 1 or 2 of those kind of threads, but haven't seen anything with any credibility. Can you name me 2 or 3 long standing members who are supporting this claim?

    Even if the rumours are true and two devices or even more are coming. The train has departed. BlackBerry 10 is dead on consumer level

    A rumour is a rumour until it's proven otherwise. Uncle Chen doesn't spread rumours.

    If it was just a rumor, why are those threads shut down now? It's a harmless rumor and it doesn't hold any weight to it then the CB mods shouldn't have it shut down.

    Rumors snowball into FUD.

    Which threads have been shut down? If you feel one has been shut down unfairly, I'm sure anyone on the mod team would be happy to review it. Though it's likely that they were shut down for reasons other than "because it's a rumor".

    We shut threads down if they're getting out of hand, off topic, or otherwise violating the R&G. If you feel there's been a mistake, contact mod team leader pkcable.
