Good to see they'll be licensing out BB10 if everything works out to go along with their Android offerings. Now just waiting for the two love birds Pretzyld!ck and Pentakitty to show up trolling.

Let's see... So far BB has been overselling, overhyping, overpromising their product. So, why should I believe that's this gonna work?? If BB failed to sell BB10 device, do you think others will success? To everyone, this is just a BB over hyping their product again....

Could you please point out what in the following quote screams "overhyping"? : "If it's a solid business model going forward, we'll work with a 3rd manufacturer. But we're not close enough to say we're going to do that." It's not even a commitment. How could you say that's overhyping their product?

Please explain where the "over hyping" is in this article. Here is the first BB quote in this article: " We continue to support the BlackBerry 10 operating system; some companies are interested in licensing it for handsets. If it's a solid business model going forward, we'll work with a 3rd manufacturer. But we're not close enough to say we're going to do that." This sounds like BB being careful and cautious as opposed to hyped up about licensing their OS to me.

I agree. +1.

All your comment proves is that you didn't read the article.

The absolute life's you tell. You just make sh*t up and hope we all believe you. It must suck to be nothing but a troll like your boyfriend Mxy.

You're the alphageek, the one who continues to fight the good fight.

Lol, you're still stuck on that BS even though I posted a link with Alphageek himself saying he's not me on a recent podcast? Does Alphageek know that you're still trolling him even though he's not on PA anymore, or is this your man-crush manifesting itself again?

109. Mxyzptlk unregistered

What bs link are you referring to? All evidence points to you being alphageek, your former account and your other"aliases."

You wish. For whatever reason, you have a serious man-crush on Alphageek, and now you've transferred it to me. That's really creepy, btw. And all evidence points to you having multiple faux accounts, including the recently banned Scott faux account. And I'm referring to this link right here: http://utbblogs.com/utb-blogcast-action-overreaction/ where Alphageek himself proves your BS wrong about he and I being the same person.

Nope! But I have first hand experience that your mom is.

Nah. I just like pointing out that you have one. Pentakitty gave up the goods and told everyone about how lacking you are.

BB10 is dead devicewise. They might not have any further devices after the Priv.

I can link several articles that prove your statement wrong.
