"We have a clear shot at being the No. 3 platform in the market. Carriers want other platforms. And we're not just another open platform running on another system. We're BlackBerry."
--Thorsten Heins, CEO, Research In Motion

Seriously though, I thought it was a funny quote, nothing personal agains the ps3 which is a great system. Happy holidays. :)

You mean that open platform that's kicking your ass?

No, because he is ok with being third. :)

Nobody has even a slight chance at beating Apple on the smarthphone market.
And unlike Blackberry, Sony has been top dog.
Not once, but twice.

Also, I don't recall Sony being OK with being third, because when all is said and done, it won't be.

Psst, it was a harmless joke. Don't take it seriously. Happy holidays Flores. :)

Not too mention RIM actually was top dog, three times to be exact. LOL.

Apple has the single best-selling model of smartphone but Samsung has beaten them in terms of total sales since Samsung makes several models of excellent Android phones. Blackberry actually was once the top dog as far as executive level phones. They just got clobbered by the smartphone market and were slow to adapt.

Not sure, Vita is around 3 million? I think the U has broken a million thus far. So it is 33% there within a single month? Give or take. I can't access VGchartz at work. So I am guessing a bit. Hanukkah is a wonderful time of year. Great food, great gifts and most importantly, great family time. :)

Edit:
Wikipedia has the U at 1,000,000+; which isn't that helpful. So I am sorry to say I can't really answer your question accurately at the moment. My apologies. Maybe Jason can assist? On a side note Jason was kind enough to post numbers that show the 3DS has sold more in Japan already than the ps3 lifetime. I was shocked, apparently Japan loves the 3DS. I personally don't own a 3DS, my iPad has a good enough library.

Sure. I wasn't sure how to put smartphones into a "generation" like consoles, so I broke it into years. Either way, RIM was once the top dog. Though they deserved to fall, the iPhone and Android are far superior. Thanks for the question Douglas. How is your day going? I hope all is well. Ready for that Wii-U update? :)

Smartphone and gens happen every freaking month..lol

I had a iPhone 4 and now have a iPhone 5. But I have also had 3 Blackberrys and 1 Android. I prefer the iPhones.

Anyways, my day is good so thanks for asking. Hows yours?

Also, when is the WiiU update live?

I know right, phones just are constantly changing. I still have an old non smartphone. I stick with my iPad for web type stuff.

Mine is going great thus far. I am excited about the holidays, I have all of next week off. My brother is getting a U for xmas and I will be visiting him in Cincinnati, Nintendoland with my niece and nephew should be fun. Plus great food and drinks. My father picked up some 30 year Tawny Port I can't wait to try out, he also grabbed some Balvenie 15 yr single malt.

I believe it is up, Jason updated his Wii-U already. :)

"We're Blackberry" doesn't exactly inspire. I liken BlackBerry to all things clunky and unintuitive, and years behind what even Apple is doing.
