    not trying to be rude, but RIM isnt worth investing in either stocks or for phones. I would think most, if not anyone on TPU that used a BB has switched to Android or iPhone.

    Be forewarned, the club will be small.

    Blackberry just started a new advertising campaign here, i dont know why, coz their phones are not the slate format, which is basically what everyone buys now.

    Blackberry sales have been on a landslide since android/iphone have pretty much taken over the market. Analysts say that they could be closing shop or bought out by as little as next year. I have about 3 of blackberrys in my desk and I wouldn't use them if they made me.

    I just dont understand why they dont go with the whole large touchscreen/slate format thing instead of the 30 or whatever physical keys + small screen

    I for one totally hated touchscreen only phone. I really do prefer physical buttons for actual usage. However the screen on the Blackberry are simply too small to do anything else other than phone and text.

    Come on folks, there are still people who use Blackberry products... that's why this thread was started, not to talk about Android or iPhones.

    It's also here for discussion and the OP hasn't been negative towards our comments and has actually bantered back and forth.

    I personally would use one if the outlook for RIM was better. All i really do is text ppl, so a BB would be a perfect match for me.

    I agree with everyone that RIM needs to step there game up for sure. They need to adapt new tech. into there products, bigger screens, faster processors, and KEEP THE QWERTY KEYBOARD!! (my favorite part).

    Or someone hack a blackberry to run Android ;)

    Like them or not, the smartphone industry is firmly planted there. Perhaps blackberry should make a slide phone, one part could be 4.3" touch screen, one part qwerty keyboard, and if you dont want to slide the phone and turn it sideways, there could be a keyboard button at the bottom of the phone that brings up an on screen touch keyboard.

    I would think a larger version of something like a Japanese flip-phone will work well. A flip phone with a screen that you can turn it into the standard slate format with just a turn. My own flip phone have a 3D touch screen slightly smaller than that of an iPhone, just upsize that and pack the same old decent camera sensor.

    Absolutely not, I plan on upgrading my Blackberry with the new BB10 hardware. Never rule out the creators of the Smart Phone RIM. They are cashflow positive, 0 Debt and have enough support to launch a massive BB10 campaign. Anyhow, if BB10 is what I've been reading about, RIM should easily claw back market share from both Android and Apple while keeping Microsoft in 4th position.

    January 2nd The Release Date For BlackBerry 10 Phones?
    http://www.blackberryos.com/content/january-2nd-release-date-blackberry-10-phones-4277/
    This is the media trying to get the best doom and gloom story from a company in recovery. Absolutely nonesense IMO. Kick a company in the balls while it's down. The funny thing about this Doom and Gloom RIM nonesense is people truly buy into it, for instance, a Best Buy tech phone employee recommending people not to touch Blackberry's because there network constantly crashes :laugh: This is the type of falseness and crap people spread misleading customers.

    What he failed to mention is both Apple and Android have network crashes all the time, alot more frequent than RIM. RIM just gets more recognition because they are in recovery and many would love to see them die off. Not happening anytime soon... Also typed on my Blackberry Playbook.
