Re: doubts
@Shakeeb... I think they have to stick with the niche markets in order to survive.

@Technocrati – I second it "they have some good security", that could be one good reason for them to have loyal customers.

@glenbren – I believe that they still have a place among the business people and executives who still consider blackberry as part of prestige.

Re: doubts
@glenbren – I think they still haven't lost hopes on the market so they still try to come up with new product designs.

Re: doubts
@Technocrati – yes if blackberry could hang on they should be able to satisfy the current users. I guess they should also work on Social networking apps they have as now Blackberry is for business as well as personal use.

Re: doubts
@Paul – Do you mean to say they should stick to the niche market? 

If so could they survive?

Re: doubts
@shamika – Blackberry comes in handy for BOYD because it's much more secure than the other devices / platforms. You could securely connect your emails and other networks for smoother business.

@shamika – In fact I am hoping to get my hands on a Blackberry Q10 but if they are hoping to release OS 12 then I better wait.

Re: doubts
@Shamika – Yes I have to agree that Blackberry is one of the best phones when it comes to drafting emails and other texts (especially the ones with QWERTY keyboard)
