BlackBerry diehards aren’t going down without a fight - The Boston Globe

Perhaps the last summer for BlackBerry devices; earlier in the article: "Chief executive John Chen has said he’ll [ditch hardware altogether] if he can’t make the handset unit profitable by September."

"He can probably expect renewed pressure when BlackBerry reports earnings on Thursday. On average, 21 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg expect the company to post a loss of 7 cents and pull in $471 million in revenue. BlackBerry reported just $2.2 billion in revenue last fiscal year, its lowest showing since 2006. The shares have fallen about 20 percent in the last 12 months.

At the end of March, about 23 million people around the world were using BlackBerrys, including the Priv Android phone, according to a company filing. Three times as many people were using the handsets two years earlier, but the continued loyalty is striking all the same."
