BB keeps making the same mistakes over and over again. Excluding LTE when carriers are pushing LTE is the first problem. Second is design. BB10 is failing, and it's just a matter of time before they announce their last phone.

This latest fail is an example of BB's product 'pipeline'. And one further reason for the inventory writedown - even BB knew in their heart of hearts, it was a sales fail.

Expect to see one or two more abortive examples of how bad things really were at BB. I suspect the new buyers are now wondering if $4.7 B was overpaying.

Internet CEOs: "BB needs to make a cheap phone! Their stuff is soooo overpriced."
BB makes cheap phone
Internet CEOs: "OMGWTFBBQ that thing is cheap crap, I cant believe they made this cheap crap."

Im starting to understand why they want to go private
