As usual, haters will lurk this thread. Do you really hate RIM or threatened bacause of your OS might look old (actually there is one, and hard to catch up). Its up to you to bash, stick on your current phone or jump ship, your choice, it's our choice if we stick to RIM I mean BlackBerry. Problem? *trollface*
From what I have read (on other sites) the OS can directly address issues on enterprise management of BYOD. Gives the IT dept alot of control over work related stuff while not effecting anything thats private.
It appears to be quite powerful.
There is one problem though, I have read that BIS will not offer the same unlimited browsing experience for a flat monthly rate anymore. While some services like BBM will terminate on the BB infrastructure, the rest will use the carriers network infrastructure.
In Africa this has always been the big draw of BB- the unlimited internet access at a fraction of the cost of any other SP.
One carrier did confirm that BB10 will no longer come with a the packaged BIS but remained mum on what packages will be offered. Older devices, however will still have the facilities as before.
So it remains to be seen how well the new OS competes given that it just lost its main draw point for the standard end-user.
mello, 30 Jan 2013i read about the os is good.but the price.Price?!
OK, compare price in western Europe, or Canada, US, with price in central Europe, Brazil.... and then say something ;-( But...for that quality, why not? BB is excelent. You still have choice on ebay. Previous models is now cheaper, and still excelent quality with new OS10. So...?
Ok here is a challenge to all the bb people name one innovative or new feature that hasnt been done already on android wp or ios.
It sure won't attract the 'specs kiddies' but their base users have always been the corporate users. This will only probably gain back the few who left and give them a reason to stay. Indonesia should be happy!
i think the price is high, higher than sgs3, the touch handset i think, anyway this UI is much better than the thumbmail menu of WP which is to boring, this handset is good
This OS is going to be so popular, how do i know this? The haters and fanboys can't seem to make up their minds.
1st it looks kinda like meego, then someone else says this is just like WP, then yet another person says it's like Android, and another person Ios, even to the point where someone says it look like Belle.
Everybody already wants a piece of the pie, or they feel threatened by how good it looks so far.
Why don't we wait guys to actually handle the phone to know whether it would be a success or not.
Saaz, 31 Jan 2013This is not fare for Blackberry user , When i Buy A new Fone After 2- 3 Months Blackberry laun... moresorry pal, its a different os, even its still BB but BB10 is base on QNX. A new n refresh os. No upgrade i think.
Fridaybird, 30 Jan 2013Because Rim ownes the company who designed Meego or belle or whatever.Blackberry doesn't own the company! Where do you get your info from?
Meego is now owned by a new company called Jolla.
And Belle is no more, nobody owns it, it's just gone.
KenjiPlaying360, 30 Jan 2013seems to be boringTo me it seems like a remarkable attempt counterstrike from Blackberry, it seems like an OS worth using IMHO.

can you guys please comment on the Map Apps
OK better still let me write it here:-
The app only works when you're online, not even caching routes once you get going, so you'd best restrict your expeditions to areas with good signal coverage.
yup, that's right works ONLY WHEN ONLINE.. for comparison NOKIA works offline..
