Regardless of anyone's opinion on blackberry, I still think that Heins is one of the better CEO's out there.

And I still believe BB will make a comeback with BB 10 as per the features and interface that phone has.

Best of luck BB and get some good brains on the work to nail the market with this product.

I love my perks with the Android nation but my first smartphone,one of my first,were Blackberry.I still hold a soft spot in my heart for them and hope this pays off esp. w/Windows 8 phone and Android. Heins will do a great job running RIM and I will be watching for BB10

Heins is totally focused and the BB team too. It will be reflected in a strong and flexible platform... They only need the support of carriers and users.

Good luck BlackBerry. Hopefully you have worked out the software bugs that gave your curves a life expectancy of only 4 - 6 months. (my step daughter went through 9 of them in less than 2 years before she gave up and went Android)

May BlackBerry become the new ecosystem that appeals to many.

Reading this on my 9860 while my 9800 is recharging. New years resolution? Get a BB10 of course. Hopefully if BB10 handsets are a big success,BB will come out with a 4G Playbook.
