What an idiot-he insults WP and Android devices, when any-one of them is better than any BB device ever made or is being made. He should care about saving his BB bussiness and his ass, because BB bussiness is falling like a rock into an abyss and it's gonna hit rock bottom soon.

Corporate's use BB still, just bcoz no other platform has internet plans with any of the world wide clients like BB... And from my experience, having BB and Android, using multiple mailboxes, I vote for Android being it can fetch all the email id's... BB failed on that... I am not sure about OS10...

When you have Android with many variety of graphics chips and SoC with carrier and manufacturers embedded apps and skins, it won't be as stable as iOS and WP running on specific SoC/graphics chips that are optimized for the OS.

BB should concentrate on helping their own brand survive instead of speaking crap about other OS. I think he didn't use phone like sgs3 or htc one x before.

they "thought hard" to find fault in the reasoning that building services for other platforms will likely be more profitable than selling their own os and hardware - they cant find any fault at all. nyahaha

Black Berry is quite ok but please do consider other technologies - android / Win 8 / IOS. Absolutely learning and also competing for one and another. Somehow some people are in the technologies arena (so called the computer war-zone or Colosseum) to prove the skill, power to create, design technologies. Any OS can evolve into either advance or poor category. What if there's a new rise of another type of Alien droid OS that beats all? Then don't you think it's time for you to realize too soon to mention those OS "are not mobile OS"....

If you're talking about one version of BB, BB10, then it's obvious it's not fragmented: it's new, you're accounting only one version, and that version is barely out yet.

It's like saying Android 1.0 wasn't fragmented. Seriously, think before you open your mouth.

BB10 does look promising, but quite frankly it's DOA.

Punch, delete.

This CEO knows nothing about the future of smartphone or tablet.
If he knows, BB should have dominated the market.

"mobile devices could be used for the same tasks as computers". Yes, sure. Like I'm going to be using Photohop and the like on my mobile phone to do all my picture editing. This guy and his ilk are clearly out of their trees. "Oh mirror mirror on the wall, whose the most deceptive of us all"?
