    BlackBerry up for sale, where now?,

    As a fairly new owner of BlackBerry playbook and Z10, and with an unsupported, no abandoned tablet, and BlackBerry up for sale, where will owners be if a sale or break up of BlackBerry goes ahead?, BB10 devices left with out support? Why buy any BlackBerry product at this time of uncertainty, it's not unknown for customers to be abandoned as suits a company, PlayBook owners told BlackBerry must devote all efforts to BB10. Then new OS7 phone launched, was not BB10 the saviour of BlackBerry ?, the captain of the ship asks for more time it's running out, the bad marketing and un realistic pricing, where is the low end BB10 phone's, as Nokia have found out that's how to get windows phone increased market share, the new larger touch screen phone due soon what features will it have that will make any Z10 OWNER upgrade, or switch to BB10 from another system?, it needs the best specification available, but if over priced it will be hard to sell, a friends company has just moved to I phone to go with it pads already in use because of playbook fiasco, sales of phones/Tablets lost, how many more like it?, the playbook and Z10 are very good devices and suit my needs, the Z10 battery life is a let down BlackBerry could have solved it with a battery up grade kit, will the new flagship be any better?.

    That's a little bit of a rambling question, but the gist of it seems to be whether it makes sense to adopt the BB platform when the company is apparently on the ropes. None of us have a crystal ball; my own view is that I would be hesitant to buy a BB10 device at this point, because the outlook for the company is unstable. They have gotten so many things wrong, and it's hard for me to see them win enough market share to re-gain relevance (BTW you have hit on what I think is one of the most serious mistakes: they over-priced the BB10 devices by wide margins - a huge miss in the marketplace).

    However, as you already have the Z10 bought and paid for, if it suits your needs, I would see no compelling reason to switch right now. There is a reasonable chance that BB, or some successor, will be around to support it for the next two years. The Playbook is what it is at this point: a good but abandoned 7" tablet that is still quite useful. I use mine regularly for email and browsing on the go, which it does nicely.
