Product roadmap. At the moment, BlackBerry gets no respect from investors in their future roadmap. However, it's got a dynamite one. It really is set up -- thanks to their QNX and TAT acquisitions of a few years ago -- to play a big role in the "Internet of things."
It can actually lead both iOS as well as Android in showing the world its software's capabilities to have your phone and tablet talk to multiple intelligent devices around you -- in your car, your home, on the go, and in a health care context. As soon as it starts demonstrating some of these capabilities, especially with partners, this could get investors very excited. There's good reason to believe this evidence will come in the second half of 2013.
