Is there anything left for Blackberry?

BlackBerry should consider selling its assets to a single buyer. The technology (the phones, the OS, BES) will be difficult to split up and sell off. Everything is so inextricably linked (something BlackBerry management boasted of) it doesn't make much sense to unravel it all. There's very little magic still left in mobile hardware anyway. Instead, the mobile battle will be won by those who own the mobile personal cloud, and all of the services tied to it (for Apple, iOS, iCloud, iTunes, Siri, Passbook, Maps; for Google, Android, Google Now, Google Maps, Go). BlackBerry simply doesn't have an ecosystem to speak of, no matter how good its phones are, or how innovative its OS is.
