BB10 os is a great os compared to android,WP & ios.its completely a gesture os.there are no physical & onscreen buttons.its a next big step over the current mobile operating systems.it would be great if OEMs like samsung,htc,lg,sony etc adopt BB10 os on their devices.

it took more than 1 year for RIM to add calender to BB10. RIM doesn't have the power to compete with android.

well because the previous CEOs dont realize that iPhone 4 is targeting BB's market--the business market.. and the rise of android is very fast!!!

and they give Heins all the burden... but he decided to use QNX platform for BB10--which is a smart move! coz since its an Unix-like platform, app development support will be better than BB7 which is a java!

The survey is NOT valid WAY of survey.
or maybe the title of this article IS WRONG...

70% of REPLY when surveyed *IS NOT* the same as 70% of BB user. We need to know how many percentage DID NOT REPLY the survey. That's the real bad things. IF the app developer ask 10K user, and only got 1K reply, MAYBE 9K user (90%) already fled to other platform such as android, and iphone.

Ahhhh who cares about BB users. All they care about is PHYSICAL keyboards. They don't know the real beauty of Android. He'll I can even throw iOS in their cuz even iOS is better than blackberry.

IMHO physical keypad always has an edge over softkeypadd because of ease of use n less chances of typos, if one is always on emails then this feature is indispensible. plus BB10 is pllaning to bring loads of goodies to the platform :) so YAY!

then, tell them to sell their android and buy BB, because BB is for stupid people like your family and friends.

You'll be surprise to know that the student in small town is more android (and symbian... because there were lots of second hand symbian in Indonesia), than BB.

WHY???
simple reason...
with Android (and second hand symbian), the student got a GOOD gaming console + phone. They don't have to ask their parent to buy Nintendo or PSP

lol thats in india but in my country.. BB coz we love social networking... nokia's symbian and feature phones is still use as a secondary phone and so is the android by the likes of samsung,sony and other cheap android that is sold here!

so basically they use android just for game... understandable coz this just prove that android is anything but a toy! while BB means business!

they buy android (and symbian you say) because they cant afford buying a PSP and nintendo!
