Battery to last longer. The battery will outlast the company. Blackberry is dead

Disagree. Don't call it a comeback quite yet, but BB is doing quite well with its 2 new devices, especially in the UK.

It is done on purpose by bb they're giving each store an inconsiderable amount of stock in order to make it look as if it was selling well when in reality it's not.

Why are you so concerned about how many units BlackBerry is selling? Doesn't make any sense.

Battery to last longer. The battery will boost the company. BlackBerry is still alive.

absolute disagree with your comment. Maybe u've never gotten a feeling in-hand a product of BB? This's a differently with the rest, that's what exactly keep BB alive till now. the real feeling when u use a real mobiphone.
Sr i'm not a BBfan, i'm using HTC with Android but BB OS is never die.

2 grams of ram and 8 grams of storage? sorry to troll but please edit the article and display the proper units.
16. g2a5b0e (Posts: 1375; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
Actually, you're wrong. While GB is standard for gigabyte, G is also an accepted abbreviation. Grams is g or gr. The capitalization or lack thereof makes a big difference.

They will never ever regain the sales in the United States. People have moved on to much superior platforms.
6. cabuya (Posts: 24; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
The only superior os right now is android. ios only strong point is app but is a outdated os today in my opinion bb 10 is more superior than ios and only time will tell but if BB keep doing what they doing now they will take third placed

blackberry doesn't and will never stand a chance here in the US of A
26. cabuya (Posts: 24; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
i don't know where you live but i live in new York city every day in the train i still see ppl with blackberry yes they are few but i see maybe one or none wp8 phone let say realistic 60% of those ppl jump q10 or z10 blackberry is fine.

the s**t that comes out of your mouth.... makes stupid people seem smart!
There are millions of people still using old BB devices 2 + years old. If BB was so dead why are there still so many in use? And keep in mind most of these are people who have jobs that are good enough to afford any phone they want, but they still stick to BB.
Thats because they are not dead, and stop saying they are dead. When they go Bankrupt, maybe then you can say they are dead. But in the mean time STFU about whos dead and whos not.
You act like Lazardis and Balsille pulled a train on your mom and now you hate the company.

Another John Cena moment? I wonder if he uses a Blackberry? They suck!
31. semipro1337 (Posts: 56; Member since: 01 Oct 2012)
I dont know, but i bet he would beat your ass just cause...
lets get something straight here. This is a tech site. Not consumer reports. I have used BB, iOS, WP, and Android. Guess what my phone of preference is? None. They all work. They all make calls. They all stream radio. They all have a calendar. They all handle email just fine.
Work phone is ios
personal is z10
tablet is android
Gave my ipad to my mom
Sold my lumia 920 for a Note
Had a Galaxy Nexus
Had a TITAN1 and TITAN2
Had both BB Storms
Recently sold my note for the z10
I think im overly qualified on what works, they all do. I dont have anyone to impress with any phone/tablet and those who rely on such things to impress are just plain retarded. If you didnt think you had to impress people, your opinion on what sucks and what doesnt would never leave your mouth.
37. apiskula (Posts: 330; Member since: 25 Jan 2013)
You sold your note for the Z10. Yeah you really know what your talking about your fool!
40. semipro1337 (Posts: 56; Member since: 01 Oct 2012)
Yep I did. I got tired of lag, waiting for ATT to update to JB while 2 year old hardware was already updated, which they finally did, and home screen lag was gone, but it didnt speed up anything else.
I do know what im talking about, "your fool!"
Nice grammar chief.

Another day another berry. Useless though, It looks as if it was tailored for toddlers.
Blackberry has less than a quarter slice of pie in The United States Of America and doesn't stand a chance of regaining sales
13. weinerslav (Posts: 121; Member since: 31 Jul 2012)
I wonder why are you so bitter about blackberry... If you where funny it could be forgiven but since you're not it's just sad.
And by the way, I would love to check the phones of people that call this R10 ugly, really, I'm quite sure I would have a good laugh.
14. xperiaDROID (Posts: 3716; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
The R10 is not ugly for a low end QWERTY keyboard smartphone.
Those people who said the R10 is ugly because they have a bad taste.
19. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
it is ugly xperiaDroid....the curve 9320 even looks better than this.
34. xperiaDROID (Posts: 3716; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Nikolas, do you know what is a low end? So, you want a low end smartphone with unibody design?
18. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
R10 is such a FUGLY phone why aint you all realize ? just look at the keyboard alone makes me gag. it is reminiscent of the HTC ChaCha
BB will be f*cked up if this phone sells for $300 or more
11. PermanentHiatus (Posts: 229; Member since: 22 Jun 2012)
I don't understand why people want Blackberry to fail.
Once they're gone, other companies don't need to innovate as much due to less competition.
20. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
wait what ? blackberry doesn't inovate anything bro, tell me one thing that blackberry has invented / re-invented / game-changing ? nothing
22. NewroticSlob (Posts: 19; Member since: 09 May 2013)
I think they've changed something very personal to you. Your attitude. Unless you're always immature and hate all things you don't agree with.
Also, compare phones to cars. What car are you driving? Are you screaming and putting down ALL the other cars on the road? Probably not. Stop being a chickens**t hater and man-up or shut up. If you don't like something, so be it. If BB has done something to you, personally, take it to a lawyer.
BB will survive in the US of A because we should support our neighbors. Or are you thriving on a phone owned by the asian corps? You decide lil man if you're going to continue your pointless tirade for a monopoly or shut up and troll somewhere else.
23. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
Does that mean we should support Apple as well since it is an american company?
I'm not trolling at all... Every time i say something it is always preceded by a fact
No i dont hate all the things i don't agree with. I only hate bb and that's about it, i neither hate wp nor apple.
25. NewroticSlob (Posts: 19; Member since: 09 May 2013)
Please enlighten me with all of your facts. Are these evidence-based facts or opinion? FYI: Opinion is not fact.
Should we support Apple? I think I do. I have an iPod and have had one for years. Hence, I use iTunes. I have a gmail account and enjoy it immensely. I own a Windows PC.
Do you not like Canada? Is there something deeper that should be taken to a professional instead of a forum? Because this pointed form of hate is senseless and counterproductive to what you stand for living in the US of A.
I would think that having BB available as a competitor, you'd be more than happy to have them succeed. In a free market society, competion creates a better product and lower prices. Unless you like high prices? Let's push phone prices to over $1000. Yay, Google!! or Yay, Apple!! or Yay, Honda!! or Yay, BMW!! or Yay, Exxon!! or Yay, Shell!!
So, you still get to decide if a monopoly is what you want in the end and willing to be s**t about it or let everyone have what they want w/o your negative crap?
24. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
About that lawyer thing... Well, i would if i could :-)
36. MachDaddy (Posts: 33; Member since: 06 Mar 2013)
tell you one thing blackberry has invented? how about...the blackberry! it was the original, iconic had-to-have-it smartphone. it was all about razr's etc before that.
Apple picked up the torch, refined it and ran with it.
Android has come to the party and added customization to great functionality.
And BB has slid behind. But, their new devices are competitively spec'd, their OS is imaginative and useful, and they've still got a buttload of people out there who STILL use their 2-3 year old devices.
They might be done, yes. But in the smartphone game, the winners and losers seem to change places in a very small period of time relative to other consumer products like cars or retailers etc. So who knows? In 2-3 years, Samsung's empire could have collapsed due to flooding the market with a million different "Galaxy" variations, and BB could regain it's iconic status. Doubtful, but 3 years ago who would've had Samsung as the #1 phone maker or Nokia going WP only?
Let's see where it goes, but most importantly, let's give credit where it's due which is to the original must-have smartphone maker, Blackberry nee RIM.

With these specs it couldn't be a low-end phone. Price must be high.
33. MC1123 (Posts: 1210; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
its actually a mid-range with a price tag of more or less $350 off contract!
39. NewroticSlob (Posts: 19; Member since: 09 May 2013)
Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. It's just yours stinks more cause there is nothing to your reasoning that BB should not exist. Go troll somewhere else or grow-up and put some big boy pants on and shut up. Your diatribe is childish and annoying. Unless that's your goal.
Childish and annoying. When someone behaves as such, they are put into timeout to help them understand how ridiculous they are behaving. Perhaps you're unaware of how childish it sounds. Let's determine how annoying you can be. Make another fabricated and unfounded statement against BB to allow us all see how adamant you are about being obnoxious and are just desiring a level of attention that a whining child would crave. This way we can understand your motives and ignore you.

Nice job! Where I come from we call that pwnage!
