After BB10, Is BlackBerry Headed for $10 or $15?

With the erstwhile Research In Motion (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) having not only announced two solid new phones, but a new name for the company as well -- BlackBerry -- is this the spark to ignite the comeback that investors were hoping for? In this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner tells us just how good the new phones are, as well as the new operating system, BB10, and whether any of that will matter considering how late the company is arriving to this game.

Apple has been one of the biggest reasons BlackBerry has watched its market share bleed away over the past few years. There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.

    RIMM is still over 100% since Sep.

    The reason for the drop since the launch is "carrier testing" in the US. The phone is already being sold in the UK. It will be available in Canada on Feb. 5, and the UAE on Feb. 10. Even India will get the phone before the US.

    BB10 is better than the iPHONE check the specs. I guess Apple and Android and Samsung are scared.

    I have shoes older than that kid. I watched the Blackberry Launch video (available on the web) and I LIKE THAT PHONE. It switches between languages, e.g. English to French, WHILE you're typing, it predicts what you'll type and LEARNS as you use it, if you haven't watched the video, go do it, you can fast forward the first 10 minutes and go right to the part where the Z10 and Q10 come on stage, but you will like what Thorsten (pronounced TOUR-sten) Heins says and how he says it. He didn't pause once, no "uhs" or "ers", no stuttering, just a straight shooter. He has a Masters Degree in Physics (did Steve Jobs?) and IMHO came along at the exact right time in RIMM's history for maximum impact. We'll double our money this year from these levels. Who knows, Alicia Keys might be working her Hollywood pals right now to do some ads, and *gosh* maybe even Paris Hilton the star of her own porn video will even get another one.

    Those who know do, those who know they don't know learn, and those who have no clue but think they know everything try to teach and advise everybody -- in our case kludge hearsay into videos.

    Gee Andrew, nothing about enhanced security, the ability of IT managers to completely, 100% completely, control company information on the Zed. Nothing about individuals not being required to own two phones? Just comments about an entry price related to the Iphone? Nothing about 79M loyal users? Nothing about BILLION and a half in cash, nothing about their patent portfolio, or their stength in emerging markets. How about the new OS?

    Could it go to ten? May be. Will it rebound? I say yes. Andrew, you don't say much.

    Why is everyone with a fancy title and a web cam an expert?

    These comments are full of optimism, not realism. I dont know where RIMM will be, but people could have analyzed the barnes and noble nook and found major advantages. Time will tell if RIMM can rebound, but please keep a sane head.

    And it doesnt matter how much money they have or their loyal users. The fact remains that RIMM has less than 2% of the smartphone market, and they are constantly burning cash. This is their last chance
