NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Is Jim Cramer a fan of BlackBerry ( BBRY)? Well, kind of.

Cramer told Debra Borchardt at TheStreet.com Monday that the company's new device is not a game-changer, but the company does have a loyal fan base that is indeed worth something.

Cramer said he'd be a buyer of BlackBerry, for a trade, ahead of its earnings, where it's likely to report some good numbers thanks to reduced spending and the stabilizing of its subscribers. Beyond that, however, Cramer said he's not a fan of the stock in the longer term as it has been a football for analysts, being kicked around daily between $12 and $15 a share.
