Its not enough, sales will go down and losses up. They had the chance when reworking their OS but instead of coming up with something people of today want they came up with BB10, they wasted their chance and now they cant afford to do a major OS rework again. BB company will go cheap the day they have to sellout.

Daheck?? What kind of corporate mindset they have..? They should see that their OS is the real reason of their FALL!!! why not invest in Android and BB at the same time? BB has a very good image in terms of their name so going Android will do something for them..

Just a prediction: Google will buy BB. MS will try, but Goole will outbid.
And it will be a relief. We've seen what MS can do to Nokia and Skype - utter devastation! (Nokia being our friendly neighbours up north e.g. Finland and Skype being Estonian, my homeland)

I've never liked blackberry till Z10, I mean that phone is beautiful, fast and I really like the OS. I think the poor sales are because the reputation they acquired from past phones.
