When BlackBerry let loose a good news barrage earlier this week it had me wondering. BlackBerry is set to announce their year-end and fourth quarter fiscal 2013 results on Thursday March 28th, 2013 which is in exactly two weeks. We can assume BlackBerry is stocking up some good news for that "judgment day" event since investors are dying to know how BlackBerry 10 is faring along with BlackBerry’s legacy device business. This makes me wonder what this big news release is meant to show two weeks before their fiscal results?
For example, this week they announced that an unnamed BlackBerry partner has made an order for 1 million BlackBerry 10 devices. The largest such order ever. Its pretty surprising that they didn’t hold that news back for their fiscal results announcement. This has me wondering if there is more than just the raised sales forecasts and surging orders for BlackBerry 10 parts from suppliers we have been hearing about for BlackBerry 10. BlackBerry also has the US launch set for March 21st which is a week before the fiscal announcement and I am sure they will have some news to share there.
Let me know what you think?
