RIM has updated its landing page for BlackBerry 10, adding a couple of videos, focusing on BlackBerry Hub and giving you an opportunity to add your email address to receive news on further updates. And there is even a small peek of a BlackBerry 10 device. While mostly covered in a shadow, we see what appears to be the back of the device with the camera lens and the flash seen. A institutional brokerage house released a bearish report on RIM, as we told you earlier on Friday, that calls for a March launch of the first BB10 models. Those will be the all-touch versions of the phone and the units with a physical QWERTY keyboard won't be ready until June, according to the institutional broker.

Well I will say that I do not understand anybody who says Android is "complicated to use" or "only for geeks to use" after seeing how complicated Blackberry 10 looks. There's just so many gestures I don't think I could remember them all. I would like to think the old Blackberry OS was easier to use. I don't know, I just can't imagine that many people putting down an iOS, Android, or WP8 device for a Blackberry 10 device.
Where are you getting low res screen from? Have you even looked at any of the specs for the upcoming BB10 devices? I guess you're just another internet hater. None will be low res and I interface is very refreshing. So hate on buddy, I'm buying one the day they are released. ;-)
haha not hating just an observation an the ui does look boring to me personal opinion. It's to late for RiM to remotely catch any platform even windows. They stalled and waited until 2013 to release there BB10? are you serious s4 and i5s both out next year taking a majority of their wishful thinking sales numbers. So no hate
you hate BB coz all of your following/followers hav BB?! or what appears in your timeline are all part BB?!
that is the most pathetic excuse ever!
i couldnt care less if the people i follow use whatever platform they use as long as i could see what they are tweeting!
that is just wrong, hating BB just for that?! so what if those people dont have android? are you the one buying their phone?
they might like using BB coz its easy to text on a real keyboad...yeay i know there's android phone with real keys too..but i only see a few to zero available coz again, they cant really surpass BB's superiority within that area! and the market are more into touch right now..thats why RIM is eager to bring the full touch BB experience to market!
just understand... and if you hate them that much, dont visit the news/post that is related to them coz its just pathetic..you act like a freaking fangirl teenager...
not necessarily, it's just the way i showed you how many blackberry users are here in my country, as you can see, ALMOST everyone here in indonesia is using blackberry, and you know what ? they think that having a blackberry smartphone is cool, if you can speak indonesian, i will send you a picture showing one of my friend mocks those who don't have bb on twitter
it is a shame for my country, blackberries are outdated, it's a fact, not because i hate them,
they LIKE USING BB because of BBM, not because the phone itself, as a matter of fact, nearly everyone here has two phones, one is bb (for bbm) and the second one is either iPhone or Android
if you're wondering "why is bbm really important for indonesians" i'll make it clear, suppose that bbm is text messaging, and only one phone that can do that, well, outside of my country nearly everyone is still using text messaging as their primary communication right? well if you don't have a bb. you can't connect with others because that's the way it is in my country, it has become a culture here,
there is no "hey, i'll call you later" they use "i'll bbm you" instead
it is a shame..it really is, as a matter of fact, all of my friends are impressed with my gnex, just because it can watch youtube, which is very common in the united states or other developed countries, they are very accustomed to bb, and you can't watch youtube on bb as there is no data plan for that
the point is : i hate the fact that i've to carry two phones at the same time in order to communicate with others easily, one for bbm and one for the rest,
bb and android don't mix, it's like heaven and hell, i really hate it when im playing dead trigger on my gnex and all of a sudden my curve ring and gotta open the bbm to reply it, bb feels like a s**t after using android or iPhone, even the bold 9900
i think you've to come here to feel it, you live in phillipines don't you? it's very near to my country
needles to say that people in our country just wanna have a smartphone that is prestigious to buy, but dont want to learn much about it, paying about USD 600 for a device thats only being used for BBM? get real!! Ask people who have BlackBerrys if they ever use anything beside BBM?? even the calendar's arent being looked over by its user. you ran yours with a car, thats good, I threw mine from a 18th floor apartment at Kemang,
i just cant wait for 2013!!! more reason why the time need to fast!!
jolla's sailfish OS and device... and meego community could actually hack the N9 and port sailfish OS on it(its kinda comfirmed by jolla, they will not support N9 but community might port sailfish OS to N9...but not them)
BlackBerry 10 full touch and QWERTY!!! just amazing!! cant wait for this!! Re-designed. Re-engineered. Re-invented! nice nice tag line!!!
Mozilla Firefox OS.. want to see what could HTML5-base OS could actually do!
next version of windows and what will nokia bring on tablet space!! and looking forward for the next family of surface!

I got bored half way in. From what I gather one thumb operation means small screen. Communication apps are only a small percentage of my use. Show me some entertainment like web browsing, movies and games.
The only features I like is how you wake up the device and how you put it to sleep (which by the way if you have a Galaxy Nexus I've been using a app called PGM for the past 4 months that do this without the power button).
For me there is nothing special about it. The majority of these features can be duplicated in Android with apps and custimizations.

Cool so far, pretty interesting ways of doing things, not bad, but I feel like people will need a tutorial on how to use it, you couldn't just pick it up and go like a lot, if not most phones these days. The way to set an alarm seems a little impractical, but it's convenient to get to, if there's another way besides moving your finger in a circle around the clock, it might be a bit more fitting to the theme of simple gestures to do things
