I'm only writing this because I can't shout it at every customer that comes in asking for the bloody thing.

Disclaimer: I don't dislike any of the major manufacturers or their respective OS's. Long live choice in the market place.

What a silly comment, how can we compare it to iPhone 5? Its not even out yet with no specs released..

This looks impressive and until the competition get their products out yo have to compare them to the available competition.

I think that 1.2GHz processor is overload for such device because BlackBerry is far away from multimedia device even doesn't support a Adobe Flash. So, it won't be able to squeeze all juices from 1.2GHz processor.

But anyway, it is good news, BlackBerry moving forward.

Who cares about Android?! Compare OS7 to IE9 and WP7, guys! Let's see why they did not compare these two, hehe!

Maybe the speed is better now, but no flash support and the 1.2ghz makes the trick. Anyway what can do a blackberry user with that processor?? Send BBM messages?? XD

If thats only your strong point your still in par as Bada Os.Theres no fun in u,if u only got 1 strong and many weakness,how bout its availability of app n games compare to ios and android?To be in business u r the strongest n more invisible with qwerty touchscreen n market u still far behind.Variety n Availablity is crucial 4 me.Im not gonna 4 eva just browsing.the fun tablet is fun with many app n games not just browser..the make sense move for u to catch up is provide easy tool to port other platform to here n provide easy game maker open sourcely,that will make yur market crowded n flooded.

good work BB
it seems that BB is on the right track and it will introduce more improvements in the months to come .
they have learned their lesson as the market demands more and more from the manufacturers , specially in this case that it has the same style but both worlds , touch and hard keys
well done
