re: BlackBerry's Comeback Doesn't Convince Some Analysts
How come every story on BlackBerry suddenly gets filled with comments of people supporting it and pooping on everything else? The market doesn't reflect this. Does BB pay you squids to fill comment sections with fantasy?

re: BlackBerry's Comeback Doesn't Convince Some Analysts
I have one of these Z10's around the house, along with an Iphone 4S. I'm not the primary user of either. But one thing that is not well-publicized about the Z10 is that running Android applications on it is a matter of converting the Android .apl file to a .bar file, which can be done in seconds online. I don't suppose Blackberry wants to talk that up too much.

But the multitasking and application peek capabilities, which allow you to be looking at one thing and then slide the page out of the way and see all your messages, really does make the Iphone feel old and a bit clunky by comparison.

It will be an uphill battle, no question. But after I handled this device for a while, I bought some stock.

Kris Thompson is both corrupt and incomptent. How about doing a little research on these bogus analysts before publishing them next time? It's an unsubstantiated opinion, not an analysis.

Corrupt analysts like this play journalist for fools, they know these articles drum up fear to drive the stock down to cover their massive Short positions on BBRY.... Or are todays journalist aware they are being played for fools and just too lazy to do any reearch of their own....copy and paste journalism.

Publishing reports from corrupt and incomptent analysts reflects poorly on this media outlet, they're dragging you down into the gutter with them.

I'm sure these analysts are recommending Apple, with its delightful 6.1 upgrade that allows any schmoe to open "secure" network information. Enterprise clients just love having their email open to all.
