BB has a huge uphill battle ahead of them vs Apple, Android and Win8 phones, but if they can keep/regain their niche as an ultra secure platform and put out quality competitive hardware they may have a chance to stay alive.
Truly secure devices won't be a niche market very shortly in North America once we start paying for everything with our phones... Like they already do in parts of Scandinavia. Once that begins there is no way I would trust my current iPhone to secure my transactional information.
