      Soooooo Sad… but the good news is their cash is up and their sales are up. The market for smart phones is expanding so quickly that their market share of new device sales in 2012 is half of what it was in 2011, but the raw sales volume is up.

      They still have a chance if they can continue to avoid burning the $2.5+ BILLION cash reserves.
