This CEO is dreaming. Wake up. Your BB has no more innovation. You got to think on that than saying against your brilliant competitors. Definitely, BB has no plan B.

yeah, and BB should start producing a monochrome phone, again

seriously, what standard are you (BB) using? what year? or are you simply sucks at making arguments

I'm not an android or WP fan, but I do appreciate "improvements", why don't you say something else, like why should we buy BB, what feature does BB have, etc

"Android and WP are not mobile computing platforms?" yeah, I think you sounded like a loser

I can do it for free if you want. at least then the shareholders may get a 1c return on a bad investment. will watch u fail witj pleasure!!!

Survey wasn't conducted accurately.

I was one of the first to use Note 1 as my 2nd phone, but have got bored with Android. am equally disappointed with iOS which is getting outdated fast, nothing innovative is coming up. Need to try Windows 8 as my second phone, am not worrying too much of the apps that any OS may offer. Have read some good reviews of windows 8. Have a bold 9900 which I am quite happy with.

Thorsten Heins, first release OS 10 to Playbook & then make such false statements, OK! Promised long back about OS 10 release on PB & still waiting. First define what is 'Coming Soon' or 'later this year' which we are hearing for long time.
You are stating about 'mobile computing future' but BB won't even exist in Late 2013/ Early 2014.

Actually you are so outdated with the Corporate statement it makes me giggle. I run an IT Dept and believe me Blackberry is non existent today. Everyone at our company has the option to Bring your own device and ALL i see is either APPLE or ANDROID phones.

Maybe 6 yrs ago it was different but today BB has nothing over any other Device when it comes to Business.
