Net income in the quarter was $98 million, or 19 cents a share, compared with a year-earlier loss of $125 million, or 24 cents a share.

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins says “We’re pretty excited by the stats we’re getting from the market, It’s a strong testament to the strength of the product and differentiating elements.”
