Add Blackberry Messenger to Galaxy S3 and Samsung will be the ultimate winner. Whatsapp is a poor substitution for BBM. What a shame RIM cant make decent phones.. they are years behind!

I do and I can tell you that on JB (4.1.1) the battery it's better than on ICS (4.0.2).

This Samsung statement saying they are not buying could be just to drive RIM stocks down. Then they will just say they have reconsidered and are now buying it at dirt price. It's all business.

I think it sounds awesome---- rims namesake is huge for buisnesses. NPR just had a story how an iTunes account was completely hacked -- cloud images and videos erased because the person called apple directly with the last 4 of a credit card number. RIM has neverhad such a breach.

Atleast Samsung should buy their patents before the bloddy crapple buys it. Samsung should integrate these BB patents in their Own Tizen Os to make it strong.
in that way Samsung can capture the corporate world.

Nokia should run BlackBerry's OS. This way they can go down in flames together. Besides, windows might start manufacturing there own phones anyway. They are opening new store fronts and making there own surface tablets,it wouldn't be a surprise. What do they need Nokia for anyways?
