they love BlackBerry coz its really awesome and unique experience that is different from the competiton--iPhone, android and even Symbian and Windows Phone...
so stop hating blackberry hater!!! just accept the fact that BlackBerry is still relevant in some region.. and will be relevant after BB10 is release!

yes past BB OS cant really do a lot of things.. but can do great multitasking... the browser is really not that good, and limited set of apps coz its RIM's fault releasing phones with different screen sizes... its a pain to devs ass developing apps for BB coz it has different screen sizes
but BB10 device will going to change that!!! and it will be great... BlackBerry's greatest OS ever YET!!!

because they already announce the screen size of their devices and its unified so that it will be easy for devs to create apps for the OS if it has unified screen size...
the brower of the PlayBook is now superior... and since BB10 is QNX base too.. they share same core..
PalyBook OS might be discontinued (but i dont have proof by this statement..PB OS might still have its updates) coz the current PB will be upgraded to BB10 so it is unified like apple with its iOS.. iOS is use by iPhone, iPod and iPad!

but there's nothing that make us feel "WOW" in bb 10, hd screen ? scalado camera (some camera technology related to time) ? quad core processor ?
android already has it!!

yes.. android has it..but atleast they catch up and has unique features... some tech blogs like the verge attended a BlackBerry Jam and got a hand on the semi final version of BB10 and they are all positive and all the same" BlackBerry catch up with BB10 in competition and very futuristic, love the gesture just love everything"
and BB now catch up with BB10 and still has advantages like BBM and Email...
android is still messing up with that!

yeah... is your PB runs on 2.0? you'll be happy that it will be updated to 2.1 and when BB10 is out, it will be updated again... i think Q2 or early Q3...
can android do that? NO!

BB phones are safe and they have that keyboard that is so amazing to type with
