BlackBerry earns 'most improved' Net Promoter Score

While BlackBerry has had a bit of a rough go competing against Apple and Android over the past few years, the sentiment surrounding the company has begun to change for the better if only ever so slightly. The road ahead is long, twisty and full of hills but at least BlackBerry is still on the road and one of sign of that sentiment change I referred to has come by way of a new report coming from Satmetrix wherein BlackBerry scored the largest overall Net Promoter Score increase for the year and earned 'most improved' among U.S. consumers.

BlackBerry is cash flow positive and growing the software business

Earlier this morning BlackBerry reported Q4 results for fiscal 2015. Revenue dropped from $793 million in Q3 to only $660 million in Q4, but that's mostly hardware related. On most other metrics things are looking up for the company, which explains the stock market's mildly positive reaction to the results. The stock is up about 20 cents as I write this, to US $9.52 per share.

BlackBerry wins dismissal of lawsuit related to company operations and outlook

Back in October 2013, a class action lawsuit was filed against BlackBerry by Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC and former Louisiana Attorney General Charles C. Foti, Jr., alleging BlackBerry had filed 'materially false and misleading statements and omissions related to the Company's business and operations' which misled shareholders into believing that the BlackBerry 10 line of devices and company operations were doing better than they really were.

Canadian man faces fines and jail time for refusal to unlock BlackBerry at airport

Here's a little something that hit close to home for me personally. Alain Philippon, 38, of Ste-Anne-des-Plaines, Quebec who arrived at Halifax's Stanfield International Airport from Puerto Plata has been charged under section 153.1 (b) of the Customs Act for hindering or preventing border officers from performing their role under the act based on his refusal to provide his BlackBerry password to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers upon his arrival.

These mobile operators join a growing list that has already launched ESBL, including Vodafone Germany and Idea Cellular (India). Mobile operators using ESBL are able to provide customers with one monthly bill to subscribe to BlackBerry EMM services and BES12, the only EMM provider that is able to offer this service. The ESBL offering will support iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

 'I intend to continue to build a hardware business'

Mobile World Congress is already well underway in Barcelona, Spain and while it wasn't entirely expected to happen this early, BlackBerry has made several announcements. The biggest one arguably comes by way of their unveiling of the company's plans for cross-platform services via what they're calling the BlackBerry Experience Suite. The suite was noted to be 'a major company-wide initiative in BlackBerry's commitment to build out its robust software portfolio' and that includes bringing some beloved, and thus far BlackBerry 10 only, features to other platforms such as iOS, Android and Windows.

Detwiler Fenton reportedly facing criminal case over BlackBerry sales information

Back in April of 2013, research firm Detwiler Fenton claimed that Z10 devices were being returned in unusually high numbers, which caused BlackBerry stock to drop nearly 8%. At the time, the claim sounded rather crazy because it essentially made it look as though returns were exceeding sales.

BlackBerry understandably took issue with the claims and stated they were absolutely false and sought a US and Canadian review of the claims through Securities and Exchange Commission and Ontario Securities Commission and now it appears as though they might be seeing some justice on the matter according to a new report from the Boston Business Journal.

John Chen not a fan of UK Prime Minister's desire to ban encrypted messaging apps

In what I'm sure will come as a surprise to no one, John Chen has now spoken out against UK Prime Minister David Cameron's comments supporting the banning of encrypted messaging apps which could include BBM, WhatsApp, and Snapchat, among others. Heading to LinkedIn to share his thoughts, the BlackBerry CEO laid out details that highlight how privacy and national security can be balanced. Hint: It's not by banning encrypted communications services because, in the grand scheme of it all, that would just make things easier for hackers.

Sony Pictures Entertainment

Thanksgiving this year was a bad time for Sony Pictures Entertainment, and that's putting it lightly. Hackers known as The Guardians of Peace managed to take over entire portions of their internal systems which led to the theft of a ton of personally identifiable information about Sony Pictures Entertainment employees, movie scripts, information about movie deals, and even full versions of unreleased Sony movies. Because of the hack, Sony had to find new ways to communicate with each other and keep the organization running during that time and as a new report from the WSJ highlights, they turned to BlackBerry in some cases.

John Chen increases his BlackBerry turnaround odds to 99 percent

After BlackBerry's Q3 fiscal 2015 earnings call, BlackBerry CEO John Chen sat down with Bloomberg's Emily Chang to discuss the report, business strategy and profit outlook for the company. As has become a common question for Chen, he was asked how he felt about his chances of fully turning BlackBerry around. Rather than running with 50-50 or 80 percent this time, the CEO was confident enough to lay down a 99 percent. You can check out the full interview below or head on over to the Bloomberg videos site to watch it.

John Chen Executive Chairman and CEO at BlackBerry

John Chen has a master plan for BlackBerry and as highlighted earlier in a famously straightforward LinkedIn blog post from the BlackBerry CEO titled 'Don't Believe The Hype', he's not going to stray away from that plan just for some short term hype or to chase trends, despite pressure to do so.

That plan as we know it includes BlackBerry focusing and building upon their security foundation by introducing new solutions and offerings for enterprise rather than on the consumer market because that's what is going to lead to the long-term success of BlackBerry, not an endorsement from Kim Kardashian or rumors and speculation about BlackBerry's plans for the Chinese market.
