I see Blackberry employees defending their commander and chief, but I won`t let him off that easily. Chen took an enormous write-down two quarters ago with expectation that it would be the final loss. Now they have to take further write downs? Chen has had enough time to turn BB around, he has to go.

I  always saw this coming and now that it has happened. I am certainly not surprised.

Not surprised at all to be honest. The brand has been struggling for a while. The phones were not capable of keeping up with the others on the market.

I'm  not surprised either. I didn't know that people were still using blackberries. There were popular for awhile, but what's more popular now are the iphones or samsung galaxies.

BlackBerry use to dominate the field about 7 years ago. What has happened to this company? Competitors such has the Samsung Galaxy and Iphone's have made the blackberry irrelevant. They need to be more innovative to compete with the top dogs.

 Nobody wants a blackberry it's a incredibly outdated phone I don't understand why they haven't upgraded it so they compete with the current phones on the market. They pretty much have it looking exactly the way that he used to. I'm not even sure they have a touchscreen version of the BlackBerry available right now. That makes absolutely no sense.

I have never been a fan of Blackberry phones although they became pretty popular back in 2010-2012. Same as other posters have mentioned, I am not surprised that they have gone down. If they want to come back and be on top again, they should upgrade and release new features of their phones.

Wow. I remember when Blackberries were all the rage about 8 or so years ago. They were especially popular with the white collar crowd and people who had busy schedules. I guess back then, Blackberries were the original smartphone. I didn't even know Blackberries were still being produced. Who is buying them? I don't know anyone who has one. Every I know has either Android or iPhone.

Well I think Blackberry is really old hat. I don't even know anyone who has a blackberry anymore. It is one of the things that is not well known in the world anymore. I think it is just a hangover from a certain time in the past. I have never had one, nor do I want one.
