I'm a BB Z10 user! Being a college student too, I just love it. A very good phone by BlackBerry for sure. Faster performance, Better Quality Camera, Sound System, Awesome Headphones, & all that with Looks to die for! In love with my Z10! I absolutely faced no problem using this Beast! :D

Will RIM get the access for its users for App world for all the countries? In Oman still it is still not supported by any ISP . If they assure the access to any part of the world; then RIM will be the No.1 in smart phone.

Windows Phone simply cannot meet what I need. So, I may consider selling away my lumia for BB10. But what I worry now is that I will need to be subscribed to BB service in order to get everything working? If that's true, it will actually fence me from getting BB10.

U NEED AN OS TOO! the best phone is the phone that has an OS that is TOTALLY optimized to the specs it has (software+hardware --->At least blackberry and apple make both) ;)

If RIM bought it, they should change it a bit more then this. This is a Nokia idea and it's based on what Nokia did some time ago. Nokia invested allot of money in maemo/meltimi/meego, it is not like they created an OS so after, to feed the fishes with it. MeeGo did not sell cause of the poor publicity and support and android crapp cheap devices who are like Chinese rice: everywhere you look or take a dump, you see them hanging. Maybe BB will support it's software more, but i would still say they should change it more, and the design to. Anyway, this days all new OS's imitate MeeGo to the maximum, so i start to don't give a dime about new things to come... i'm waiting for crapdroids to take a dump in technology and history and call them innovations. At the end, i would buy this, cause i always liked MeeGo. At least someone is supporting this superb system. And maybe BB will be my next phone after i buy 808... if wp does not turn into my likes...

BB10 still lacks dedicated numerical rows in the keyboard which is a letdown for most people, myself included. It's inconvenient to switch between numbers and alphabet when typing unless of course BLACKBERRY thinks that only 4 - 4.3 inch screen phones are what the planet's population only wants.

I myself is a very heavy email user, so I will prefer a large screen phone for emailing since I will be sending lots of official emails without resorting to typing short forms as in SMS.

My another concern will be the battery life, If BLACKBERRY still don't have the technology to produce a bigger battery capacity, I won't be surprised if the phone's a failure. This is just me talking. However there are still lots of people who doesn't mind the short battery life since most of them bring charger with them or are always near the charging booth.

I have told BLACKBERRY years ago in one forum not to produce a tiny narrow physical keypad phone but they didn' listen to public opinion, instead they just listen to their product designer, what a waste on the OS

I have used every OS that is out. And they all have their ups and downs. IOS was simple and clean but was too lock down everything needed itunes which was good and bad for me. Android gave me the freedom of doing things was a good change from iOS but not every Android phone gives you the same experience as they have low, medium and high end phones. Of course the high end will run well because of hardware. I believe Android has not fully optimize hardware and software yet. Where ios don't have a range of phones like android it will work well. Because software and hardware are design from apple. With Blackberry BB10 some same it works the same as N9 by gesture, i believe so but BB10 is total different experience. I have used N9 and love it but it lag a bit phone was good but didn't give me a great experience. For the haters stop telling yourselves that its shit and go out and try it before you judge it for what it can and can not do.
I am going to spend my money and try BB10. Its up to you how you all want to spend yours, I'm sure you deserve it. I, one love technology an open mind is always good. thanks listening to my opinion.
