These are gorgeous phones. Better than Samsung and most droid phones out there.

Here comes The Pacific R.I.M (Blackberry now)! Can't wait to have One. What I saw...Unspeakable ! I have strong feeling those Pacific R.I.M (Blackberry) will survive against the Monsters outside there. I Hope so...

A nice leap forward in user interface. IOS and Android feel a bit old in comparison

and i believe BB10 is fully functional.

I'm really impressed with the new OS. I will definitely be a Z10 user shortly. And everyone will look over my shoulder in awe.

Some of the apps just ported from the playbook and didn't render properly on Z10. And, the map app is just.... The phone looks great. However unfinished Os and apps, small battery, outdated CUP and GPU are a big let down. I am not getting one, for sure. May be after a few more OS and hardware releases, I might consider getting one.

I'm hearing nothing but good things about this from tech reviewers. Tech reviews >>>>>>>> everyday user reviews especially the ones on gsm arena.

let's hope both phone have better camera than current Blackberry flagships (9900, 9930, and P9981 have mediocre camera.

apps that are in BB world. I was talking about his comment of getting the 1000 top apps and not the 46 top apps like MS promised. So yeah if you believe his statement, which i can find no reason not to believe, those apps that should be in WP 8 are there in BB and i bet they work properly. Bottom-line MS is doing too little but BB is doing everything in their power to make BB10 succeed. Its as simple as that!

Looks like blackberry is taking steps in the right direction. Unfortunately they still have a few things to learn(Make your product available ASAP in as many markets as posible). Also, which will be their main focus? will they try to retake the corporate sector or will they appeal to the common user? Pricing will be key too, as great as the phone could be if it costs an arm and a leg consumers wont buy em(or will consider cheaper options).

I can't wait to buy the Q10 device! I love QNX (The non-blocking linux OS), the new features and the old keyboard! I can watch you in the eyes and still write an email in the same time!
Only a bit disappointed by the hardware, but still I can't wait to buy it!
