If BlackBerry is still around and doing better by Thanksgiving then I'm getting this phone. Need a worthy replacement for my 9930.

I actually went through the HTC Evo 4G LTE and a Sammy Sprint S2 Ep-Touch. After using Android for about 7 months, I went back to my BBRY. Now I like Android, but I actually missed something easier to use with 1 hand and a real keyboard. Swiftkey is awesome on the Evo, but the S2 couldn't keep up with me typing. And with the Note 10.1 at my side I was willing to sacrifice what I could do with an Android phone, to get back what I missed about having a BlackBerry.

I'm going to go out on a very short limb and predict that the carriers will charge us $20 extra per month to use WiFi Direct.

What makes you think that will happen? There is no basis for a charge as its just 2 devices transferring something like a file for example between each other. There is no use of a cell tower when doing this. Its the same as using Bluetooth but far faster and superior.

I am still waiting for my 10.1 update from AT&T. My contract is up this month so I took a look at what smartphones they have and nothing is that great. If they do not get the BB10 update out soon I may go back to my Galaxy Note for a while.
