55% of BlackBerry Z10 Customers Come from Other Platforms

55% of BlackBerry Z10 Customers Come from Other Platforms

During the Q4 FY2013 earnings call it was revealed by BlackBerry’s CEO and President, Thorsten Heins, that BlackBerry 10 wasn’t only gaining new subscribers from current BlackBerry users.

A gargantuan amount of BlackBerry Z10 users have come from other mobile platforms. 55% percent to be exact, according to Heins.

This is quite a feat for such a new mobile platform. Though, as Heins described, the company’s long term “vision plans to expand in other markets other than mobile with BlackBerry 10.”

BlackBerry 10, built off of the QNX kernel, can be utilized in many other products aside from mobile devices. An aspect of BlackBerry 10 is currently used in automobiles.

The future is looking bright for BlackBerry. Their revenue is up, and cash flow is steady at $2.9 Billion. The rest of 2013 will certainly make for an interesting and trying time in the company’s history.

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
