    I am a big fan of blackberry and according to figures the future of blackberry looks bleak,now as a business analyst I think the problem faced with blackberry plus many other businesses is holding back on things. For example when microsoft creates a software they give it their best shot which is why most people today still use windows xp which was designed in the 90’s, maybe if you give it your best shot and make phones that are practical and strong you could survive or switching to android os and keeping BIS + bbm could be the way of the future.

    Yours faithfully
    Jacob.

    It will be sad if Blackberry were to lose its identity through sale or partnership or takeover bid.
