I'm sure that BB10 will do to RIM what webOS did for Palm.

RIM fills an important niche, a hard one to obtain an even harder to overcome if you're the competition. RIM isn't going anywhere, they just won't be the top dog in the mobile wars. Because of the niche they fill, they don't need to be.

That's what we thought about Commodore/Amiga in the early 90s. It turned out there was no place for a 3rd ecosystem so long as 1st and 2nd place fill every customer's needs. As iOS, Android and WP8 become more enterprise-friendly, the niche that still *needs* BB will dwindle further.

I've already seen this at my workplace. The middle management BB users switched to iPhones last year. Customers like them are unlikely to switch back. It's just too late for RIM.

Too late. The majority of BB user already jumpship to iOS or Android. Its gonna be
very hard to convince themselves to return once you get used to the iOS or Android ecosystem. Within a few months other companies are launching there superphones like
Lumia 920, HTC One x+, LG Nexus with specs even better than the galaxy s3. I dont think they have a chance. Goodluck!!

How will they change "everything"? there are 5 quad core devices coming out for Android in Q4-2012. Windows is not giving up. IOS/Iphone just smashed the market.

what the hack BlackBerry going to do next? introduce a first touchscreen device? i say they should rather go sell berry's at local flea-market.

BB is living on an oxygen supplied buy the DUMB companies who offer their employee's this 18th century devices and disregard to upgraded them at 2yr contract end. I work for one of them and yes i do carry one of these animal device unfortunately.

Cant wait for those QuadCores to comeout.. thats gona be good one.. !!

What's with all the negativity for rim? And whats with all the love for other operating systems. People fail to realize they are only out there for your money. They don't care about anything you like they just care about what they know you will like in order for you to buy it.
I have an iphone and a blackberry 9900 and I chose the blackberry over the iphone mainly because what I do with a phone is mainly talk/text and email. Nothing does that more efficiently than a blackberry. I choose not to be buried or attached to a phone because it has a certain few apps.
Bb10 will be a nice fluid ui and when my contract is up I will try one mainly because my BlackBerry has never let me down so they keep my business.

People talking about phones is turning into people talking about religion. No matter what you say your always wrong unless you have the same device.

I think it will change things. It will be a four way race emerging with iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, and BB10 all fighting for clients. However, who will be in the lead is up for debate but just wait and see.

Pretty much crunch time for blackberry. They've delayed launching the new os for what I assume is good reason. People can't wait however and it's hurting them. Though they are looking like they're making all the right moves with developers, government / businesses, and carriers. Time though is not on their side.

its actually a good decision for BB10 to be release on 2013...why? RIM dont have that much money to advertise BB10 and its devices along with Microsoft, Apple and Google...

these 3 has tons of money to advertise their devices and products... so i think q1 2013 will be a good start!
