"Great deal for Blackberry customers". Really? The guy who decided this was OK must be related by blood or marriage to a founder or major stockholder, right? Because no actual business person with a shred of sense would ever do something like that without some guarantee of personal immunity. More evidence that many of the people running these big companies are "bubble boys" with very little idea of how the real world works. I give a pass to the 20 or 30-somethings in marketing who came up with the idea in the first place. Their absorbtion with all things Apple is well known, and their bosses should factor it in when considering their advice. How does the old joke go? "If you took a brick, painted it white and called it an iPhone, they'd buy it." Good for Blackberry, putting up a fight. Maybe they're not doomed after all.
