BlackBerry Is No Apple

Things may not be all that rosy for Apple these days, but at least it knows that it can count on its growing loyal audience to show up for new product introductions.

There seemed like a flattering nugget out of BlackBerry from its previous conference call in March, but in the context of last week's carnage, it's not pretty.
