    Apologies if this has been covered before - but I couldn't find an answer

    Do we have any details of any planned announcements of new devices by Blackberry yet?

    I seem to remember reading something about an expected announcement at IFA?

    Cheers

    Chen flashed the Slider device a while ago. He also stated that he's working on an App alternative. So we certainly know that there's something cooking in the pipeline.

    BlackBerry has got to do the announcement.

    Because BlackBerry has to explain to the Enterprise community... what the "hockey sticks" is going on. This isn't some new device announcement, this is a major platform change - or possible addition.

    Enterprise customers are going to have questions, that will need answering..... or they'll be putting any plans for new BB devices or BES Licenses on hold. And might even be so frustrated with BlackBerry that they either go with some alternative they have already been looking into. Or they start looking for alternative.

    Long term this might be very good for BlackBerry.... short term I'm kinda doubtful how it will be received by enterprise.

    Yet BB isn't formally attending IFA - no booths, no press events, nothing. So don't get your hopes up for anything there.

    Of course, BB could hold a press conference in Waterloo at anytime.

    Exactly. If blackberry had any game changing news, I'm sure they would make some sort of announcement first for everyone to be ready for it.

    Knowing BlackBerry they will send out a press release announcing that an announcement is coming in the coming months.

    I think BlackBerry is the only company that announces or present their products 9 months before releasing it. Am I the only one that hates that. They showed the Q10, Passport, Classic and now Slider like 6 months before releasing it. Seriously unless you're going to release a product within 4 weeks why even bother showing it.

    Well we've seen more than a bit of chatter about all 4 major U.S. Carriers selling it, so to me that's an announcement that sales aren't far off. With a new iPhone about a month a way, the smart thing to would be have the Slider out on display and in stock when that 6s and 6s Plus bottle neck of weeks of waiting hits. I know, I know,  fans will wait it out, that said maybe the fed up ones will be interested in the Slider, especially if the Android Run Time is that improved or if it is actually running AndroidOS. Wishful thinking, as far as far as launch date, but one can hope...right.

    But what alternative? Mobile iron, is 40% of its ipo, so not tonnes of confidence there.
    Good? Seems like BlackBerry and bes are still great choices. And bes and a BlackBerry Droid might still be the next best thing to BlackBerry10 + bes
