    That's certainly some good news. Reported this to our blog team.

    BBRY wins this regularly, no? I doubt it would have any effect on the stock. Any positive movement is likely a result of good manager vibes, IMHO.

    Stock is up almost 5%, but is it for this or selling their german facilities and freeing up cash?

    I think it's more likely the latter.

    Red Dot awards seem entirely pointless. The Z10 won one last year, along with thousands of other products. They even have an entry from on their homepage for manufacture to submit their products for the Red Dot Award. I betcha with a little effort, I to could have a prestigious Red Dot Award, sadly, I don't think it would be worth the time and effort.

    EDIT:

    Well I did some more investigating, and read their terms and conditions. Turns out I definitely will not have a "Prestigious" Red Dot Award in my lifetime. The entry advertising fee is too high for me. But hey, evidently other companies are cool with paying 10s of thousands of euros for an award and the advertising that comes along with it. Heck, they even charge 3,000 euros for images of your particular product.

    I dunno, after reading more about Red Dot, I can picture John Chen saying "Thank you so much Red Dot team. I was waiting this award. Its really great user friendly and smooth". The whole thing screams of fake award to me.

    I can see the Q10 winning, but Q5? Isn't it just an all plastic phone?? The Q10 with the stainless steel frame/bezel, stainless steel frets, and proprietary glass weave back definitely has the build quality down. I'm not really a fan of plastic phones... I haven't seen a Z30 in the real world so I can't speak for it...

    yes you can see BB PR machine working this one in searching the news stories. The other phone manufacturers that won basically say 'thats nice' and don't do any promotion on it.

    Dammed if you do....

    So... don't consistently release positive press, when all you've had was negative for a couple years? so many negative Nancies out there...

    There are plenty of examples if self made, self promoting entities that ended up making it big. Look at Howard Stern.
    He hardly had good press.... but he consistently says he's the best, and self promotes. Now he's worth a couple hundred million.
