Blackberry has a name that most Africans and Americans adore..Blackberry could easily be the Iphone of Africa... Invest in mid range phones, competitive RAM, ROM and Processor, agressive pricing and tactical PR and Marketing. The World Will come to you...oh and make sure you maintian The Blackberry U.I. feel on top of the Android OS. You will stand out like magic... Keep your pop-up Hub style (like in the Priv), your keyboard and typing experience makes you a god in mobile phone market...and keep the camera game tight. Waiting eagerly for the new BB devices.
Put android in bb classic with better processor and ram, and see the world coming to you.
More competition is always a good thing. I'm a new Priv owner and the phone is pretty great, honestly. The physical keyboard also acts as a trackpad and lets you do some cool stuff. A lot more useful than you might think!
Chen is completely clueless about how to turn this company around. RIP Blackberry.
Cool! I love blackberry!
I would like to have 1 next year........
Keep it up BlackBerry ! Why should the world only have Samsung And Apple and their extreme prices.. More competition more innovation..
Both smart phone bussiness and technology reached to pick, price counts more to compete.
I hope next launch will success so Android phone who use pkb still exist, future that all smartphne became all touch is creep me out.
same configuration (software/camera /battery/price) as one plus 3 and on bb andriod with priv style or one plus 3 + porsche design...u have a winner..

They get it right, BlackBerry devices survive and recover. They get it wrong, BlackBerry devices becomes history
galaxyS7, 24 Jun 2016My last blackberry phone was Z30. A Blackberry with Pure BB 10 OS without android runtime in z... morethey need to give their classic keyboard with android OS, I forgot to mention the dual sim which is so popular these days and demandable. I believe BB is back then with solid sales or at least average sales at the beginning.
I can't wait to see the Rome which has fixed keyboard, specially the Porsche Design version. I think using Android with fixed keyboard would give us great experience. hope they get better camera than Priv this time, and I am in.
If you haven't listen to music in HTC M8 and M9 then you haven't heard music at all. It trashes all smartphone and music player to date...
Still trust Blackberry for their security. Nowadays with the cheap phone and particularly from China, you really need to think about where is your info and data going to....
dladz, 24 Jun 2016hahaha, blackberry, unless they release a beast of a 5 inch phone which ticks every single box... moreIf you ever heard the sound that comes out from a BlackBerry Z30 then you will know about sound.The phone is over 2 years old and to date no phone beats it's sound.
I just hope Chen prices these upcoming mid-range devices much more aggressively, otherwise sales will falter. I'm interested in the full touch device. I love my z30 (BB10 OS) but I am interested in trying out a Berrydroid full touch device as long as the price is right. I don't need a top end, top spec phone so a mid-range device might be perfect, but Blackberry had better be aggressive on pricing otherwise hardware is done sadly.
Keep up the positivity Mr. CEO! I am with you and your projects. Good luck!
mir, 25 Jun 2016Those are massive losses. Even some car models have more units sold than their phones. Blackbe... moreIf you didn't know.They have other business units that are doing very well .They handset division is falling .
Am looking forward to their first android capacitive qwerty. Priv is the best android/ios device i've had, but still not good enough at being a BlackBerry; I need instant acces to their qwerty shortcuts to be satisfied. Going by the pictures it'll be taller than the q10/classic which makes it the same shape as most phones on the market. Hopefully the space key biometrics are more than just a rumour and BlackBerry releases an android version of their bb10 browser and file manager.
