    Great pod cast, I’m always waiting on edge to hear what you guys have to say concerning the future of BlackBerry.

    Nice discussion. The PayPal feature brings up two issues: using BBM security at consumer level, and using effectively a handset for both financial interaction and control. I think this is hugely missing in all smartphones now. Managing money and such. Doing this well could be a revenue maker. On slider, it’s all a mistake. Too bad there is such secrecy. I am suspicious that secrecy is due to potential problems of delivery and execution that have always plagues BlackBerry due to its small size. Embracing android better is mandatory for BlackBerry. We all know it.
