Bravo, BlackBerry. Keep up the good work. I hope you do extremely well.

I just hope those numbers hold up. If Blackberry 10 ends up being as good as it's been touted to be so far, and if it's reliable without a quarter ton of bugs like the Storm had, then we may see Blackberry snatch victory from the jaws of defeat once more.

Im sure the results will be the same in South Africa, as Blackberry was voted by young people as the coolest brand of the year. For people like me living in South Africa and using an iPhone, I pay a lot, while a young person who is into social network will pay less due to BIS, Im sure they are waiting for the release of the new BB10 handsets.

Yes you are correct, I am in SA as well, and I do not pay anything for my phone, my employer does, but I just like BlackBerry its not because of BIS only. With the release of the Z10 they now have a very competitive device, BB10 users will not be picked by other phone users.

I suspect BB's delayed launches in key markets, relative to the official release, will hurt momentum with MWC literlally days away. If other competitors and release their updated portfolio's within a month of the BB10 roll out...it could be bad for BB. Sure, pent up demand is very high at the moment. The big question is what comes after this thirst is quenched.
