    Linky?

    If you have access to this document, I would imagine that it would also tell you why in answer to your question in your first post.

    I can't, it would give out too much information about my employer. That much is enough as is.

    You steal a shot of a company screen for discussion purposes but then don't wish to discuss it or provide valid sources all the while potentially risking your job. Is that the gist of this thread?

    Maybe they are releasing a small refresh of the Z10.

    Actually, it wouldn't have been Verizon. The company never ordered a single unit direct from RIM (and yes, I still call them RIM). Verizon only ordered Blackberry's from a 3rd party distributor and only as needed. Apparently, they didn't have much faith in BB10 or the phones that use it. I know I have personally asked people I know at a few AT&T stores how many Blackberry phones they sell on average in a week. They all said, between 1 and 2 per week. I can believe those stats.
    RIM as a phone maker is dead. They need to forget about making their own mobile hardware and open BB10 up as open source. Concentrate on servers, security, software... Basically concentrate on their strengths. Otherwise, they will simply die off.

    They sell plenty of phones here in latin america/caribbean :) and is probably to top dog around here also, i know in different countrys is the same and im talking off contract.

    Why people keep pushing the same bs ?

    Im sorry if this offend you (if you are) but why americans think that if somethinh is not popular in the states it is 'dead' ? A lot of succesfull bussines and products around the world outside that market.....

    Like Nokia prior to their Windows Phone transition.
    A lot of people here use Sony Xperia phones but they are not that popular in the states because no carrier carries those phones.


    The market here also calls for all unlocked phones, carriers don't sell phones.

    Perhaps it just means your company is not going to carry it any longer.

    Perhaps you shouldn't have started this thread.

    You say "in the states" as if there is anything outside of it. #uglyamerican

    I'm not surprised. I was at the AT&T store yesterday buying NFC tags. It was the store right on Boylston Street here in Boston. One of the busier stores in the city. They've only sold a handful since launch. That's it.

    I DID cite my source. Even posted a picture of it. Not even a screen shot, a phone photo of the document.

    You just choose not to accept the source

    People "chose not to accept the source" because it was dubious and you can't provide anything beyond a poor picture. Then you refused to talk about how you got the picture, because it would "harm your employer". I mean, it's more than a bit ridiculous.

    Edit: And now you changed the pictures, making yourself seem even less credible.
