    If we are predicting, here is my prediction. RIM stock will be trading at $70+ by Q1 2014. There are some analysts that are predicting $43 but I think they are just trying to 'appear safe' and are afraid of being proven wrong. Most analysts though are predicting very low stock. I am no analyst. But let's see if I beat all these wall street analysts.

    Of course, when I say $70+, it means that I am predicting that BB10 will sell far more than expected and hence that'd drive the stock price up.

    I got a prediction. I think in 1 year BBs global smartphone marketshare (10+BBOS) will be equal to or greater than iPhone, it will obviously lag the 'free'-ware and I think WP8 will grow marginally but stay in the single digits .

    I feel pretty good about that one. Any other predictions? Disagree with it? Agree? Upset by it?

    Its funny how there doesnt seem to be much of an attempt to report this but it would be interesting to know market share based on all personal computing devices. Tablets+PCs+Smartphones. Active user device marketshare (not counting devices that have been junked) would be good to know as well.

    From time to time, it is usefule to do a prediction checkpoint. There are now exactly four months for this prediction to pan out.

    Awesome.... BB dropped to 0.7% US marketshare this quarter so it's not looking good. Still time I guess. BTW, Hurds was open to taking wagers via PM, will the mods let him back in November so he can pay up?

    And by objecting to it, you added to its revival.

    How ironic.

    P.S. The OP's status bears no relevance as to whether the thread should be responded to. Had it been an issue it would have been deleted.

    Most definitely. Along with the rest of the crew. They're elsewhere congratulating themselves on causing mayhem here.

    Literally .

    And you added to the drama by posting. If it offended you, the appropriate thing was to leave it be.

    Trust me, the OP is here. Under another name. With his buds.

    Interesting

    I hadn't realised that Blackjack has been mentioned until you just did.

    It was the spawn of a thread and mentioned openly within that thread.

    FTR, I was not in favor of the action, it seemed a little much to me. At least he put himself out there, something I couldn't do myself (for several reasons).

    Look, on page 4 of this thread the OP gave his blessing to dig up this thread:

    Definitely standing by this prediction. Please bookmark it all you want. It will be interesting to see where we are at in a year. I could make some prediction like apple will be dead in 10 years (just an example) but that wouldn't be any fun cause non of us will likely be posting here. For those who says its too early to say, well, ya obviously its early, but whats the point in making predictions if you have almost all the info you need to tell if it will come true.
    I know there are thousands of speculative posts but this one is special. Eight months later and I still remember it.

    Heh, earlier today (before seeing this thread) I was checking out the threads I've started on crackberry.com (I typically don't start many threads; I prefer responding to them) and came across a thread from mid-2012 that I think was a wee bit more accurate than hurd's thread, at least at this point in time:

    I'm not sure Blackberry 10 OS will really get RIM back in the game

    P.S. The recent edit I made was to convert the original post from 2 paragraphs to 4 paragraphs. The content of that post hasn't changed.
