    Timex? lmfao! Bottom of the barrel in watch brands out there. Right along with Casio.
    What are they planning? Releasing a smartwatch using BB software? What software exactly?

    My guess is another mediocre deal with a few million bucks a quarter if they’re lucky and certainly not a market mover

      Not sure what drugs you smoke but… You should do more research about the company before you make comments here. For you Timex might be the bottom of the watch branding but did you know that Timex Group carries different business unit? Plus they exists way before you were born about 1854?

      Don’t mind Marshall. Clearly, he’s just one of those folks who like to dump on BlackBerry. It could be any other brand and he likely would have said the same thing as long as BlackBerry was associated.

      He’s been here for years under numerous names. His last one was Shogun. Call him by his old names. It really drives him nuts.

    • Marshall Davidson

      Yeah tell us how great the management here is buddy. Even though they’ve been losing money hand over fist for years. Just like you believe a guy selling a company for $23 million when he could’ve had $750 million is a genius move. SMH

    • Rev0lver

      Do you deny that you’re Shogun ? I’ll wait.

    • Marshall Davidson

      Explain to us why you hide your profile here? Is it because you’re afraid of being labeled for what you are? A BIG TROLL.

    • Rev0lver

      My profile is private because I value privacy and don’t want people stalking me all over the Internet.

      Now your turn. Do you deny that you’re Shogun?

    • Rev0lver

      Still can’t answer a simple question. Are you formerly known as Shogun?

      Thank you for the warning. I was going to reply to him but I guess..like you said there is no point. I am not trying to defend Blackberry here but not sure why insult Timex. The brand new has been around for a while. He should just do the research..better yet, Wikipedia will summarize everything for him.

    • Marshall Davidson

      LOL! What are you talking about? All their business groups revolve around watches buddy. What I will admit is that they front for luxury brands like Versace, Nautica or Salvatore Ferragamo but at the end of the day they are still just a Timex with an expensive designer price tag.
      And what has the company being around since 1854 got to do with anything? lol!

      This has all the makings of another ridiculous ‘partnership’ not unlike the company’s lame attempt to shill high end PORSCHE design phones that went nowhere. The past is prologue here.

    • Rev0lver

      …Still no response?

    • Rev0lver

      Sad.

      These brands belonging to Timex are all bottom of barrel? Are you sure? Timex Group Brands :
      Guess
      Nautica
      Opex
      Salvatore Ferragamo Timepieces
      Timex
      Versace
      Versus

      Let me see? Could it be something from BlackBerry’s QNX systems? (if it’s good enough for space shuttle, 60 million cares, hospital systems etc, it’s good enough for a watch) Could it be BlackBerry securing the device? Could it be BlackBerry’s enterprise software? Could it be BlackBerry’s secured android offerings? The list go’s on and on.
