BB10 also is NOT a computing software. It is a rare hybrid nobody wants to buy. Android and Chrome, could join a new laptop for mobiles. In android i could do almost same things that on a PC. Google has internet services for supporting them

Android IS a mobile computing platform. It isnt however a mobile computing platform that is on par with laptops etc. Blackberry OS on the other hand isnt because not until BB10 ALL of Bb owners I know uses Bb solely for BBS and BBM. What kind of stupid comment is that?

When the BB CEO said this, it is like saying that Google and Yahoo! are not search engine sites.
