    It's a very long read, but I've scanned through it. I think the writer is neglecting the fact that the BIS service revenue that is missed, is being turned around by software revenue, think of EZ Pass. And this turnaround isn't something that will make the company profitable overnight. The financial results have shown a smaller loss and JC has a pretty good idea of making the company profitable again. I wonder if the writer has done some research into the sales numbers of the Passport, which show 200,000 devices sold on ShopBB and Amazon only. BlackBerry is up for a challenge, but this has been the case since the decline in sales. I really don't think this story will end like Nokia and PalmOS, but I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens to be sure!

    I got the same sense. I also was thinking that perhaps another motivation for writing such an article is jealousy that the Passport is actually a very innovative product perhaps the most innovative smartphone so far this year.....

    If I were BlackBerry executive, my main selling point would be security.
    Launch huge (secret) hacking campaign, get all major competitive devices look vulnerable, create sense of insecurity, get data stolen, make viruses.
    Profit!
    Well I know BlackBerry will not do this, but they are fighting for survival...

    Wow good technology is still around. I thought they went bankrupt again. As I said before, this article is clueless. Revenue from BIS is being replaced by revenue from software and the pace is accelerating fast. There is a reason BlackBerry is hiring again. I have little doubt they will be in the black next quarter. I guess we know who is shorting BlackBerry.

    Good technology is number one on the BlackBerry hit list, and so far Good has been unable to IPO (i.e. find more suckers). This piece just shows desperation

    No its not. Didn't you read the financial report. BlackBerry service revenue is not being made up elsewhere. Please show the facts and not fiction.
