Screenshots from the Gold Master version of the new BlackBerry 10 OS show that a number of business software titles will be pre-installed on the device and in addition, the OS will include a Siri-esque personal assistant; speculation is calling for RIM to introduce BlackBerry 10 next week along with both the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry X10 handsets...

RIM may come third place, however, i dont think they can be 1st ... android will always be 1st... dunno about second vs iOS but they might...

This is like the neatest UI I've ever seen... Looks epic, can't wait.

BB 10 is looking really good, but I do have a couple concerns. I realize this will not be popular to BB fans, but I am a BB fan myself so...

1. It has it's own distinct look, but it is still similar to iOS in terms of being an app launcher at its core. Yes, the BB flow and other features do add much more functionality, but I wonder if there is a way to hide all those apps.

2. BIS outages! I wonder what steps have been taken to prevent the outages that had at one time become synonymous with using BlackBerry.

Other then that, looks really good!

Indeed it looks good. Only if mailing service wasn't locked down to through RIM network and i was able to synnc all mail and PIM folders (without going through BES + Exchange crap) like i am able to do on Android/iOS/ i would have bought this.

UI looks decent, but bland. Nothing eye popping about it. BB has always found a different way to fail , wether it be BB Apps or BBM issues or just connectivity issues. I don't feel the hype, and with so many people knee deep with Android or iOS, I dont see them making a dent into the masses.
Windows tried and failed at this as well.

Great timing for RIM to introduce something fresh in the market and hopefully re-establish themselves in the market as well.
There still are a lot of people who are fond of BB OS, so they certainly can take on Windows OS.

This doesnt look bad at all, in fact quite the opposite.

Looks much better than what it seemed at the first sight when RIM showcased some features.

a greater variety in platforms is welcome. I hope this works out for RIM.

Personally, I hope BB10 works out. ios and Android need competition and so far the only other OS that is trying to make ground is WP8, so I think BB10 will do some good. Never had a better keyboard than my Blackberry Torch, maybe if BB10 succeeds and they do some good, I'll go back to BB agian...
