Hope bb10 can be similar to other smart phones that can download apps such instagram,skype etc.. and hoping it has a front cam already!

Am I the only one that thinks that the OS looks confusing and too busy with the 'last applications used screen'?

I love the OS of the Nokia N9 (Hell i have the N9)but this doesnt look... simplistic. The Swipe OS was all about minimal = efficient.

Anyhoo... Hopefully it works out for them. Although I do like Windows Mobile 8 with the Lumia 920 more.

If you don't bother RIM why posting here anyway?

It's not just about animation. What they done is push the framerate to 60fps by separating works that can be done on cpu and gpu. You can see the improvement not just on ui, the web browser feels much smoother than on ics.

classic N9 gesture/swipe-driven UI. even the build reminds me of N9. let's see where this leads... it's still a long way till 2013.
