Let's bring in FOX & Friends those Clayton -- he brought the new Blackberry -- with them.
And got to ask you you know your initial assessment wasn't that great but you had a couple days -- mess around with that we think that well my initial assessment was before the press conference which was.
Are they gonna do something that's going to be earth shattering that can really try to carve out of market share for them that they need right now -- there years behind the ball.
We saw what Microsoft tried to do would years behind the ball trying to carve out with Windows Phone in the press conference -- -- And they rolled out a really solid operating system and Blackberry ten and two new phones.
So I've got the Z ten right here and it's their first touch screen.
Model that's not a capacitance screen so.
It's it's just like you'd normally see -- android phone or the iPhone.
And there's a huge wow factor with this phone when they needed the -- -- they needed the wow factor and there's nothing earth shattering yes you have this flow feature which lets you continually going through all of these apps.
And you never actually hitting a -- button and going back.
They've got two new.
The solutions so -- -- to carry multiple phones in your pocket that's one of the big frustrations for Blackberry users -- that.
-- always had to carry a Blackberry for work and he had to carry an iPhone and android phone your pocket for personal use.
They came over this idea which was quite brilliant.
You can switch between two interfaces personal and work and your company's CIO can have access to the work side of it but not your personal side.
Really nice but again there -- years behind the eight ball here and I just don't see them being able to -- carve out a space.
Well I'd been waiting for bated breath for Clinton's I refuel at the Blackberry ten because as you can see I need Blackberry girl I enjoy the keyboard so another coming out right the -- had has keyboard version -- to not.
There's two -- so that this is obviously the touch screen version the other the other one of course yes for legacy Blackberry users you'll love the new keyboard.
The new keyboard Blackberry and it has all of the functionality of this but with -- keyboard so.
That's great for those sort of those legacy customers that love Blackberry.
But they need new customers and even if they try to get two million to subscribers are people buying a Blackberry that's what -- android.
Activates an hour.
I mean those are the numbers that you're up against when when apple sells nearly fifty million iphones last quarter -- -- activating millions of new customers every day.
And you you really have tough hill -- Now and I think -- also got a tough pill with the present I the CEO that is at.
If I made the -- but the guidance was underwhelming.
Also the dead ten minutes to -- also you know.
You know maybe James Bond might drive -- -- something but I don't know.
But I got a big marketing put their yeah they are needed got a big marketing push and appalled by the available by another it's also -- -- this thing in America.
Other consumer Balkan want to go get it and that's that they'll wait like thirty days -- -- -- the -- and and endemic it's it's just how.
Problematic the company.
You hit on a huge point because what we have coming up very -- shortly mobile world congress in Barcelona.
You know a lot of people saying that mobile world congress could eclipse CES -- the conference you have to go to because of all the mobile.
All the mobile roll -- that are happening in Barcelona.
So you're gonna have mobile world congress taking place before these are even available.
To buy so we have at a press conference than we have mobile world congress.
And about a month later you'll be able to get your hands on this we're gonna see some new technologies a Samsung S for acts at Barcelona -- before let's ago.
Very quickly my only -- here is that the only thing that can happen this company to stop pulls back in there of eventually acquired.
For a couple of bills would.
I think -- I think -- right they have a nice operating system here we saw happen with palm with a nice operating system HP gobbled them up.
I wouldn't be surprised if in a few years where Clinton -- -- Thank you very much bad guys are guys it's time --
