Samsung sold 20 million S4’s in Only 2 months, has me thinking stock price fixing

image

We all heard recently that the Galaxy S4 wasn’t selling well, & while I didn’t believe it what so ever others sure did as the stock fell quite a bit. Now we’re getting the #s from Samsung & it looks like it has become the fastest selling smartphone ever selling over 20 million units in only 2 months.
Why does this have me thinking stocks are being fixed? Well this is exactly what happened with the BlackBerry stock & the Z10 when it was first released. The Z10 was released & analyst said that it wasn’t selling well even though it was hard to even get your hands on at first & stock prices took a dive (this had me thinking how they were so off if that’s these analyst’s job) Then shortly after the actual #s came out & low and behold they were much better than the #s that Analyst had projected & stocks rose.
Now we have the Galaxy S4 & analyst made claims once again that the Galaxy S4 wasn’t selling well & stock prices dropped. Now we are hearing the true #’s & again they are not what the analysts predicted at all, in fact the Galaxy S4 is the fastest selling smartphone EVER.

So it seems to me that these analysts have found themselves a way to make some big cash fast by fixing the stock prices by talking down these companies new devices even though they know they are selling very well (I mean how can’t they if I know just from frequenting the net on mobile tech forums & blogs & checking out the comment sections). Then the price of said stock drops they buy the stock knowing all the time the device is selling like mad & a week or 2 later the official #’s come out & they are much higher than they claimed thus making the stock prices climb again & making these analyst’s a rather hefty amount when they sell the stock after the rise in price.

See there is nothing in the world that is as easy to do this with as smartphones because of the # of ppl who purchase these brand new devices as soon as they are released & I believe these analysts have found just that and are raking in the cash doing so. I’d like to see how these analysts live & I guarantee none of them are struggling & are doing quite well.
What do you guys think am I on to something or do I just question things way too much in this world lol. Let us know in the comment section below.

BlackBerry Workspace coming to Android & iOS

image

BlackBerry is bringing BlackBerry Workspace to Android & iOS. This will allow these devices to be used along with BlackBerry 10 devices within the workplace. Android looks to be getting a little better experience than iOS with this feature as show in the video below. The video is brought to you by the awesome guys at CrackBerry.com. DOWNLOAD HERE :

I noticed alot of ppl complaining that BlackBerry shouldn’t be giving thus feature to other OS’s, & that it was dumb on their part to do so. I think that these ppl forget about where over half of the apps on their new Z10 come from, which is from Android. It’s funny because at the time that Android gave BB the ability to use their apps through Android Runtime, Android users were saying the exact same thing. Well it hasn’t hurt Android in the slightest & I don’t believe it will hurt BB either. iOS on the other hand I’m not sure what BlackBerry is or has gained from them or if compensation will come in a different form?
What do you guys think about all this?

BlackBerry 10 hits Canada Today!!!!

image

Well Canada today is the day, it’s the release of BlackBerry’s Z10 !!!! The first device to run BlackBerry’s new BB10 OS.
The device has been bringing some great reviews in the UK, where it was made available the day after the January 30th launch event. Well its Canada’s turn to get a taste of this brand new phone & OS & many here also can’t wait. All the major carriers here are set to sell the Z10 starting in just a few hours from the time I’m writing this. Bell is even opening it’s doors of many of its stores early to accommodate Z10 buyers.
It seems that everyone is selling the Z10 for $650 outright, but Rogers is dropping $50 off that price for today. Even better than that is Koodo who has the device listed for an incredible price of just $550!!!! As of right now Koodo does only have the Black model available, so we’ll just have to see if that changes at all. Wherever your getting it from get there early because I’m hearing very limited supplies are available at a lot of stores.
If your thinking of getting the BlackBerry Z10 today who are you going to be buying it from & will color availability come into play in your decision?

BlackBerry 10 supports Flash

image

I haven’t got my hands on the new BlackBerry Z10 quite yet, but while I’ve been eagerly waiting I’ve been doing a lot of research. I’ve come to notice one thing about BlackBerry 10 that could draw some to it & away from Android.
All the spec sheets I’ve perused all state that the Z10 supports flash.

I know alot of ppl including myself were very disappointed to hear that Android wasn’t going to support flash in 4.1 Jelly Bean & above. Now there is a couple ways to get flash running on Android 4.1+, the thing is many users have no idea how. Also more & more browsers are actually blocking it from even being used with them on Android.

As time goes by flash will be fazed out around the Web, which is true but there are many video sites that still use the format.
Well if your like me & use alot of sites that use flash then you might be even more drawn towards the new BlackBerry 10 OS, which for now is only available on the Z10. The Q10 is coming in April & will be the second device to run the new OS.

Is flash something you need for your favorite sites?
Will this draw you towards your next purchase being the Z10 over an Android device running 4.1 or above?

What’s next for BlackBerry after the January 30th launch of BB10?

image

CEO Thorsten Heins, speaking to German-language magazine Die Welt, says the company is considering several things once BB10 is launched. These include selling off the company’s hardware division, which makes BlackBerry phones. The company might also license out its mobile operating system, like what Microsoft does with Windows Phone, or Google with Android. Another option is licensing out BlackBerry Messenger, which is one of the platforms’ more popular functions, as well as RIM’s enterprise services infrastructure. RIM also could move production of its devices to a third party company.

There is no hurry for any of these, though, says Heins, although these are possible scenarios for RIM moving forward. Right now they are  focused on launching the  BlackBerry 10 platform by January 30th & gaining ground back on other OS’s.

Well what do you think RIM should do with Blackberry?
Would you love to see a BB10 device made by your favorite company making Android or Windows phones presently?
