In the news today was a link to a discussion on BlackBerry. Guess there is concern whether BB can be, or will be an ongoing profitable company worth investing in. That meshed with several seemingly dunderheaded moves with the current machine issues.

Guess BB produced new phones as an income source during the transition from a Smartphone company to a Platform company. The article pointed out that in Orlando BB rolled out a Bently powered by QNX as a demonstration of where they are going.

More discussion but the thrust was that BB will probably not be a Smartphone producer much longer but will be a viable, profitable investment because they own and will continue to develop QNX as a universal platform.

If these investment bankers are correct it seems likely the PlayBook is what it is and don't look to "fixes" for perceived problems in other devices. Nor should anyone get too wrapped up in BB phone investment.
