  1. With 5.5 million subscribers and a potential of 130 million subscribers world wide, MVIS is poised to serve this market!
    Just do the math with 10% of blackberry users, adapting MVIS technology.
    You could have sales, only for Flic in the range of 165MM to 4 Billion.
    Not as exciting as the products to come but it is sure a product that it is starting to make a lot of sense!

    Definitely MVIS is worth the risk.

  2. One thenth of one percent might be more accurate. Do you really imangine one out of every blackberry users running around with a Flic? I don't think so.

  3. It's interesting though...

    if one tenth of one percent of Blackberry subscribers bought Flics (there are 5M Blackberry owners as of April 7 http://business.techwhack.com/category/sales-figures/page/3/)
    that would give us 5,000 Flic eCell bundles @ $299 for a total value of about $1.5M.

    And there's certainly plenty of room to run should we get .1% penetration...

  4. I really consider one tenth to be really small share. Anyways is a market that has a potential of being huge.
    Flik is a great tool for mid size, small and big corporations, also homeowners and entrepreneurs.
    Anyway thank you for your reality check I enjoy having someone challenge mi thinking.

  5. MVIS went through the roof last week. I sold some shares to take some money off the table. Now I'm letting the rest of my shares go for a ride.

    Did the Flic announcement drive the recent price rise? Just curious...
