I believe in blackberry and nobody can convince me otherwise, all things mentioned above are facts! In South Africa everywhere you go you only hear the familiar bbm notification sounds!! Everybody uses Blackberry.....
There's one reason why people think RIM is dead. And that stupidity.
These people either never used a BlackBerry device, used one and jumped to iPhone - Android because "my friends have one" (trust me, I know a few of those) , have had a bad experience with one (which most likeliy was carrier related), think they have little to no good apps or heard from friends "it sucks"
In all, these people should have never gotten a BlackBerry device to start with. App's are not why one buys a BlackBerry, all devices break, even an iPhone doesn't work when your carrier is down, and if you need friends to tell you what to get, you're a sheep and Blackberry users are lions. We eat sheep for breakfast!
I'm getting kinda *bleeep bleeeeep beleeper the bleeeeep* at all these negative reporting "experts" and "analysts" who have been proven wrong more times then they have been proven right.
RIM will be around for a very long time. Not as a domminant #1 or #2 but as a stable and sollid force.
We have to consider that most of the BB's sold last few years are in places like Nigeria, Indonesia , Malaysia and so on. The BB's sold there are cheep phones. In the US almost nobody is bying a Blackberry these days. In Europe it's also tough. The BB Appworld is not the greatest compared to the Apple App Store. I have a Bold 9900 and a Playbook and an iPhone 4S so I know. So I can't really agree with your positive description of RIM. With BB 10 they have to push into the market in the US otherwise RIM will probably be for sale. Sad !
How will you get this article published or quoted on the financial sites like Seeking Alpha or The Street? They are constantly misquoting facts in what appears to be an orchestrated smear campaign against RIM?
I have invested in a mere 100 shares of RIM when it was at 13.50 and I won't sell because I believe in RIM and I'm stubborn.
I monitor Yahoo Finance constantly,even at work and I'll wager that you will be ignored.
I'm hoping that I'm wrong.
