New video generates more excitement for BlackBerry 10 just in time for Super Bowl Sunday
Pixelcarve, a Toronto-based design shop, is all over the buzz of BlackBerry 10. About a year ago, you saw their concept of the BlackBerry Blade, which was a concept – really a dream – of what the first BlackBerry 10 device could be to just blow everybody’s minds with form, function and decent specifications.
Pixelcarve makes no bones about this “unofficial” video, the company wants to help reignite the brand. There was only one catch, the company did not have the budget in the works to make a whole new production, so it simply used parts of images and video already produced and composed the story and message behind all of it. It highlights QNX and The Astonishing Tribe as two major components to the success of the platform. The end result is pretty sweet, and should set the stage nicely for BlackBerry’s appearance during the Super Bowl.

I'm not thoroughly convinced on BB10 right now.

Why not mate? It's a Web os version but on steroids lol

I am not a BB guy but this ad is sweet enough for me to take an interest...especially the QNX OS base...if they've really used all what they've shown in the ad then we could see another BB era!
31. Mxyzptlk (Posts: 2447; Member since: 21 Apr 2012)
And look what happened to webOS, dead on arrival.
33. Bernoulli (Posts: 1182; Member since: 01 Sep 2012)
That's because Elop murdered the MeeGo project, and MeeGo was/is an awesome phone, and the ui of this new blackberry is very much like MeeGo Hartman, they're all great ui, well at least better than windows that's for sure

He's talking about webos and you answer about meego? Lol

It's practically the same thing, look it up, all of that multitasking is done through Web os mainly

But thorsten heins doesnt abandoned qnx dude Lolol, so is different compare to elop...

BB has been a dying breed for years. I honestly think there's not a spark left to revitalize the brand. Last time RIM tried a bold move was with the Storm which they dubbed the iPhone killer. That didnt turn out well.
4. MC1123 (Posts: 1210; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
i understand anyone's feeling just because of RIM (now known as simply BlackBerry) mistake with the suppose to be iPhone killer known as the BlackBerry Storm, but i think i'll blame that to the past leadership that RIm have before, they think that iPhone cant get what BlackBerry's real business but the CEOs was wrong, it is eating its market so fast and they are scrambling to gain their market share back, especially that now there's android and even the trying hard WP...
but now as the commercial pointing out, they re-think of what will it be, the re-invented and re-engineered BlackBerry and that is BB10! and also, with the new leadership that is committed to its company unlike the other *cough*nokia's*cough* in the form of CEO Heins, he is doing everything to make the BlackBerry name be love by people again he didnt go to the dark side but he go on his company's real way! but again there are obstacles coz of the horrible leadership before, but BB10 will be relevant and will be a real solid platform of choice for people! and besides even they keep on saying that android can do this already, iOS have that already, but still BlackBerry is still and wll be forever the most secure platform of choice to people! and with BB10, its very versatile! so iOS users will feel at home with the OS, and android too, not in the form of UI but their precious android apps can run on BB10 using the program "sideload" so they can still feel at home!
so guys, i just wanna ask, please dont be so negative towards a company that once a titan and wants to fight the 2 biggest titans (but now, i think only android since if apple cant innovate with iOS looks, they might lost its market)
just be happy about this competition coz honestly duopoly sucks!!!
so if you dont like them that much just because BlackBerry is giving a new platform of choice to us consumers better stay away from then already, stop hating!

Spell Check/Grammar Check/Punctuation Check
You need all three.
"so guys, i just wanna ask, please dont be so negative towards a company that once a titan and wants to fight the 2 biggest titans (but now, i think only android since if apple cant innovate with iOS looks, they might lost its market)"
........where's your question?

From now on every time, I see a post comment u did ,I ain't got no respect for u ,me I don't like fruit cakes , too much sugar on u sorry .

It's not a question. He's stating what he'd like to ask someone to do. In other words: I'd like to ask you to not be so negative toward a company. The guy had good points, and rather than arguing the points he made, you've chosen to pick on some spell check issues.
Well let's check out yours. You don't even start off with any actual sentence. And your rudimentary understanding of what it is to quote someone makes it apparent you've chosen to criticize someone else's grammer because you have insecurities regarding your own.
22. gmracer1 (Posts: 646; Member since: 28 Dec 2012)
Grammar, not grammer.
And you are ridiculously ignorant for even making the statement of someone having 'insecurities about grammar.' Hell...normally I won't say anything about someone's literacy, but his is too effed up.
Btw, it wasn't just his spelling--It was also his grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.
I guarantee you are a virgin (your hands and stuffed animlals do not count). You and wp8forever should go on a date. If you get any on you, just make sure you name it after me ;-)
29. MC1123 (Posts: 1210; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
actually its not a question, i am asking the person not to hate BB10 or BlackBerry! :)
so sorry for my mistakes! :)
36. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
it's up to the people whether they want to hate it or not, you don't have rights to ask people not to hate bb

Dude... Your post was a good one, but some serious spell checking/grammar checking is sorely needed. I'm not gonna bash, or disrespect your post cause we all make mistakes. I will however ask that u re-type it... Please and thank you.
28. MC1123 (Posts: 1210; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
im not really that fluid in english! sorry :) but you get what i mean right?
34. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
learn english before you post a comment here, bb fanboy..
i think you've been brainwashed by bb?
37. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
BlackBerry's CEO Thorsten Heins is not as good as Tim Cook or Android's CEO, Why ? Did you see the bb 10 keynote ? Thorsten Heins' presentation sucks, he was talking as if he was sleepy, not energic and enthutiastic, his tone was flat
the verdict : bb 10 keynote was boring, very boring,
40. No_Nonsense (Posts: 825; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
Android's CEO? Pray tell me who is android's ceo? Google has a CEO, Android has a project manager/ product head.

As I always say, I do not wants to see RIM, Nokia & Motorola disappear from mobile market. They brought lot of innovation to mobile world. So we will wait & see how this time they going to perform.
23. DigitalJedi_X2 (Posts: 126; Member since: 30 Jan 2012)
You can't blame Blackberry's past leadership blunders on the new leadership. That's retarded. Thornstein Heins has shown more leadership, more intelligence and more love for his company than those two ass turds who formally ran Blackberry into the ground. QNX is a true computing operating system and Blackberry is definitely headed in the right direction. They have more media content partners, more relevant apps and more gaming partners than any OS did at launch. They're actually showing WP in general and Nokia in particular how to do a launch correctly. You launch in your strongholds first, then the rest of the markets. Something Nokia and Windows Phone did not do. Hence Windows Phones abysmal sales. Blackberry isn't even calling this phone an iPhone killer(but let's be real... It very much is). So let's give Blackberry a chance and cut it out with all of this bulls**t "dying breed" talk. The OS and the phones have been totally overhauled into something new so how is it dying? You know what's dying? iOS and the iPhone is dying. So if you want to say something is dying, say that.
30. MC1123 (Posts: 1210; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
you dont get what i said dont you?
"Thornstein Heins has shown more leadership, more intelligence and more love for his company than those two ass turds who formally ran Blackberry into the ground."
this is exactly what im trying to say! those past CEOs ruin BlackBerry reputation! so ofcourse since that happen before, a lot of people will be hesitant to buy BlackBerry again because of that catastrophe! so i blame the past leadership that they have for that (on that 2 CEOs only) so now, the NEW BlackBerry pay the price..even though they dont deserve to be punish coz they really did a great job with BB10, a REAL NEW ERA!
so thats why i defend them on every post here in PA coz they dont deserve to be bashed by people coz of that mistake of the past CEOs (CEOs coz before Heins, there's a 2 CEO running RIM) before! this is a new ERA for BlackBerry and a new Platform and leadership!
nokia vs BlackBerry, even i was a strong nokia fanboy---before but after elop take over nokia and make some major catastrophic changes on nokia and i hate every minute of it! and they ditched symbian and meego and choose a platform that has a weak market share (i mean wth is up with elop's mind!? symbian still has a respectable 31% of market share while WP just got 1%! all symbian needs to have is major overhaul and that happen on symbian belle but it took time for them to make it modern! sad story!)
while RIM (or should i say BlackBerry now) dont go to other's side, a lot as for an android BlackBerry, and also a lot wonders if BlackBerry will still continue BB10 before and if they will go to WP also, after hearing those rumors its makes me feel sad! as i dont want them to choose any of these platform! i want a new platform and BB10 is what i need! you see what the PlayBook can do right? so i was thankful that RIM continue BB10!!!
" The OS and the phones have been totally overhauled into something new so how is it dying? You know what's dying? iOS and the iPhone is dying."
i didnt said this, or maybe you say this on the guy on top of me? the OS looks really new and really fresh but has the familiar look that anyone can feel at home (except for WP though coz of that live tiles)
iOS and iPhone might be dying but we'll still see what apple will bring this year to iOS! you'll never know, since steve jobs is gone, he is not convince with the iPad mini right but what happen after a year of his death? there it is the small iPad! so apple can still change! they need to change!!
that feeling when the big companies now are dieing for change! microsoft with its live tiles, intel with its mobile processor and a lot of them!!
35. Nikolas.Oliver (Posts: 1260; Member since: 01 Jul 2012)
same overpriced piece of junk, $600 for this "experiment device?" how about no ?
the nexus 4 is way better than bb 10 devices, combine it with the fact that it's 250 bucks cheaper than bb 10
maybe you work at bb that's why you're constantly defending bb ?
the rumors that apple is dying is overly exagerated

@MC1123 I have no idea what you're talking about. My reply was directed at Mxzytplk, not you. Simmer down dude.

The most exciting thing about Blackberry is the Putinesque hiring of Alicia Keys.

well i really like the software of the camera... its great!
8. jsdechavez (Posts: 651; Member since: 20 Jul 2012)
Does the Z10 feature blinking alerts as the last part (1:33 onwards) suggests?
9. jroc74 (Posts: 3459; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
The Astonishing Tribe?
Really? I forgot all about that....I remember a few years ago that might have been an Android or Motorola thing. It didnt work out tho. Another good move by BB.
There were some nice demo clips about Texas Instruments and TAT. Ppl are really under estimating BB10. And that ad ....for the SuperBowl? Good move BB.
14. sithvenger (banned) (Posts: 371; Member since: 25 Aug 2012)
BB10 has a ton of promise, I think in time it will be a hit.
17. MobileMac (Posts: 11; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I'm glad they highlighted QNX the way they did. That is key.
20. sleepyjohnny (Posts: 151; Member since: 16 Dec 2009)
I think it looks like a fresh, and honest system. And as long as the OS shows no initial signs of lag, I think I'd like to jump on board just to have something new, functional, and intuitive.
24. TheMan (Posts: 317; Member since: 21 Sep 2012)
They started losing me in the first 5 seconds with their claim of inventing the smartphone in 1998. (Next thing you know it'll be RIM-now-BB having invented the Internet.) These majestic, over-the-top "we're going to save the world" ads are high on the BS metric.
26. joey18 (Posts: 486; Member since: 20 Jul 2010)
looks amazing but the blackberry storm i have to wait
27. Cha7520 (Posts: 176; Member since: 31 Oct 2010)
Lame. The ad was basically telling its viewers that they are struggle to evolve and finally in 2013 they have made a new phone, which looks like an oversize iphone. There is nothing new about it. No wonder they didn't even talk about the phone in the ad, and just showed pictures of it.
39. belovedson (Posts: 811; Member since: 30 Nov 2010)
i can't wait. i really don't understand the hate behind blackberry when the phone hasn't had an opportunity to succeed. each os has individual strengths and weaknesses.
lets start with the weakest os. ios. it's incredibly inefficient, especially for those who has various apps, and its incredibly annoying when it can't multitask. ios certainly lags at time and crashes and finally it's not secure enough for people who demand security
android is incredibly heavy and requires too much power. it still does not have a prevalent music app and store integration the way apple does. google music and appstore does not suffice. android crashes more than apple despite the mod community. it lags even for snapdragon 4? and finally its definitely less secure than ios
blackberry will try to seize control over market where security is vitally important. security, communication, efficiency, and finally productivity. blackberry might not to be able play to the strengths of the other os. for example ios is simple even an old man can do it, however, blackberry's strenghs are what lacks in the other os's. just saying
