PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "BlackBerry offered few signs of a long-promised turnaround on Friday, with an unexpected quarterly operating loss, a dearth of details on sales of its make-or-break new line of devices and no return to profit expected in the current quarter. BlackBerry shares tumbled about 28 percent in both U.S. and Toronto trading." 'Unexpected'? Really?

Well, it depends how the service would work. If they structure it like a cheaper alternative to an MSDN subscription, then it is still is a subscription based service with actual ownership.

There needs to be a solution given the rapid release cycle they've shifted into or people will be paying through the nose for Visual Studio.

I'm personally not opposed to paying a yearly fee to ensure I don't have to drop hundreds of dollars a year.
