re: BlackBerry Boasts Order For 1 Million Smartphones
Is this another case similar to Microsoft and their reporting of Windows 8 sales numbers?

If these Blackberries are all sold to carriers, does it count as a win to have them sitting on warehouse shelves and not in the pockets of consumers?

Personally, I carry a Blackberry for my "day job" and wouldn't consider carrying anything else until Blackberry finally goes down the tubes. What I'm worried about is the market having already dissipated to the point that no matter how great or flashy the device is that Blackberry can't regain market share. If that happens, I really see Nokia and Blackberry merging in the near future.

It will be interesting to see what impact this has on BlackBerry's upcoming earnings, and whether or not the company will talk about how many orders it has above a big announcement like this one. But someone obviously believes . . .
