BlackBerry posts a quarterly loss of $84 million, ships 6.8 million phones
BlackBerry just posted its latest quarterly results, and it managed to ship 6.8 million devices in the first quarter when the flagship Z10 has been sold for a complete period.

Revenue increased from $2.8 billion to $3.1 billion year-on-year, but restructuring charges and turnaround expenses are blamed for a quarterly loss of $84 million. Microsoft might have had a point when it bragged to be a viable third platform candidate with Windows Phone and Nokia's support now, beating BlackBerry for the spot. Needless to say, BlackBerry's shares took a nosedive after the press release.

Why do you want a company that employs tonnes of people to go bankrupt so they lose all of their jobs......

You and FlushGordon should dig a hole and hide in it.

If a company go bankrupt that means many people will lose their jobs, you two have a bad heart.

I hope BB will be alive forever!

So jobs are really that easy to find now? Huh!

I hope they change a few things, become a stronger company, and avoid laying people off. Have you ever been fired, had to sell your home, move to a different state, or even country, away from your friends and family, start all over again after years of hard work?

Your right, piece of cake!

I hope you know, you're discussing jobs with a ten year old. Any silly would not make a statement wishing thousands of people to lose their jobs. This is why forum boards need an age checker.

Nickolas now I know why your head is big........its hollow and empty. Is that how Google and Apple employs people?

I am not praying for BB to go away. I have just moved on.

A lot of other BB/RIM customers are doing the same thing once their contracts are up.

First off I have no contact on Tmobile. I have the Z10 and no I won't move onto another phone.. This phone is amazing. They lost money because a lot of people like that retard Nicholas think that this is like the old BB phones but it's an all new and great phone that kills google and apple. I couldn't care less what other people think or use. I use what I like and that's what makes us BB people different and unique

Why? What did they do wrong apart from pricing the Z10 and Q10 exhorbitantly? I don't know much about Blackberry before the launch of the Z10.

What did they do wrong?

Um, two thoughts:
1. Didn't release a keyboard edition of their phone first.
2. Their new phones are about 2 years behind the power curve.

Nokia is leveraging their strength in camera technology to differentiate themselves. HTC put some real effort into the One and it is paying off. But RIM still knows better than the market - even after what, 3 years of declining market share that says they don't know better.

Did they kidnapped your family or something? No, right?
Then leave them be. No one likes to see a company fail.

No one likes a platform which has hardly any apps and games
Wp8 and BB users can go to Android and iOS

You arent smart at all if you think bb users and wp8 users arent there for a reason. I have a iphone and an HTC one and there is things that my Z 10 do that the others dont. Fresh out the box. The future of blackberry is bright and just so you know the z 10 is my first blackberry. 55% of the people that got the z10 was first time users to the platform.

I have plenty enough games.. But I don't have time for batman and combat 4 games on a cell phone.. only children like you do. Plus it kills battery life quickly... BB has a lot of great games though some of which I played addictively. If u don't know than shut down
