RIM to give out BlackBerry OS 10 dev prototypes in early May - read the full textRIM is preparing a new OS - called BlackBerry 10 - to replace the two current OSes that it uses (BB OS 7 on phones and Tablet OS on the PlayBook). The BB OS 10 will launch late this year, but app developers can look forward to playing with it sooner - 2000 developer prototypes running a version of...

Rim's technology is AWESOME, even on Edge one can stream videos and music , due to extreme comprimation 1/10 (200MB=20MB, 10eur= 1eur bill) :), I've had no other phone with these capabillities and keep in mind, with the right option in your phone-plan everything you send from bb to bb is totally free, even from other countries.
Blackberry ftw

I hope they will keep releasing BB's with keypads. That's the reason why I use BB.... qwerty keypads.

RIM had their chance to rule the (enterprise) world and they blew it.

There's only so much room in the OS market - most of it already taken by iOS and Android. Whatever space is left will be taken by WP7 and Belle/Carla/Donna.
Palm (HP's) WebOS is proof that there's no place for a 4th mobile OS.

Face it RIM, you've been out-done:
BB's are legendary for their service and keypads. With keypads out of the equation, your only trump is service, and everyone else is level with you here...

Q3 2011 -- sales down 30% (from 14M to 11M), but income down 80%.... RIM mostly sell cheap one
Q4 2012 -- sales up 28% to almost 14M again, but income down further.... RIM is dead, period...

If this is as good as the playbook os, then all other mobile os's better watch out. Its gonna be a killer one, assuming it is better than bb playbook os 2. Good luck RIM and launch the phone soon.

Kudos to RIM for getting their acts together and choosing to stick with and continue develop their own platform and not falling puppet by some other company like Nokia! Hope they succeed in this tight smartphone OS competition though.

What we need in this period of time are almost same design phones (which they already are) with different softwares. Like a doctor is having a different version than an engineer and likewise or atleast different roms. Which android ia doing fairly well
