re: BlackBerry 10: More Analysts Cut Expectations
Dear BB, as a long-time customer of yours, it has come time to replace my trusty Bold and move into the 21st century with both feet in. Judging from what I've heard about your new offerings, they are too little, too late. It would appear you are hopelessly trailing the industry by 3-5 years...unless the local Verizon store gives me a Z10 for free with no contract, I will choose another brand I don't have to justify having acquired. I trust my kids will know which one to get.

Even if the BB10s weren't available for a part of the quarter, say 1 out of 3 months, if they should have sold 1.75 million in a full quarter then at least 1 million would be expected and yet, only .3 million. Blackberry would seemingly have released BB10 in their most favourable markets in order to have a good result that encouraged the US to embrace it, yet those markets are not showing nearly enough interest. On top of everything, by changing their name, they have inferred a company that is made or destroyed on that single product.

Color me unsurprised. Blackberry may have done too little far too late.
