5-inch BlackBerry A10 (Aristo) leaks on video - read the full textWe can't say we haven't seen the BlackBerry A10 before, but seeing it in action on video is a new ballgame altogether. The video comes straight from Vietnam, courtesy of a mobile accessory shop, called Vivix. So far we don't have much details about the device...

I bought a HTC Dopod back in 2008 using the windows mobile platform. The phone itself was good (although at the time people laughed that I had such a "big" phone - who knew, right?) but there were bugs in the OS and microsoft never released 1 update to the os - NOT ONE!?!

So when they said they were moving away from the "windows mobile" platform to Windows Phone I thought it would be better. Nope, same crappy, buggy os with a new look.

Now you have WP8, and the took out some of the best features from the previous os' (such as file manager, support for SD cards, more flexibility on playing media files and media file management). So now they're saying, wait until WP8.1 - you'll really like it. I don't think so.

When they are almost 2 years behind in supporting phones with the latest hardware, like 1080p, how can anyone really like this phone other than for the tiles? I know there are some WP8 fans out there, so please tell me, I'm curious what you find so great about WP8 over other os'.

I'll tell you why all the anti-bb comments.

1. Many don't like the way they're handling the competition for their BB messaging services. Excluding a few vendors, such as line from their app store, but allowing whatsapp. I don't like it either as I think the competition is good and in the end the consumer wins.

2. Many don't like the BB os, but don't realize that the os10 is only about 3 months old. Those that do complain about the lack of apps mostly (which is going to happen anytime you have a new OS). They don't complain about the os 10 itself because they can't. It doesn't lag, it's easy to use and it is very stable (much more stable than ios new version releases I can say as I own a Z10).

3. Many complain about the physical look of the phone itself. Here I see their point. It only comes in Black and White. The black is black on black on black (black back, black bezel/sides and black front. However, this isn't meant to be for the kids at school or your fashion conscious crowd trying to look "cool".

The Z10 is a business phone, the Q model is a bit more in line with the blackberry of old with the keyboard. Some people just don't want to change so they have their phone format with the new (and I will say again, much better, OS).

I expect Blackberry will soon come out with a line of phones that has a more casual look meant to compete with the Lumia line or the lower cost Android phones. They'll have to if they intend to survive (based upon the latest quarter, they have enough cash to make it through about 25 quarters of losses).

This "big" phone, if it is in fact soon to be releases, demonstrates that BB management at least has a read on the market and are going after those former Blackberry owners who went to a competitor and hope that there's enough dissatisfaction with Android that they'll win a few converts.

Since there were not endless leaks about this phone months ahead of the launch (unlike the endless Nokia/Samsung/Apple/Sony leaks) and given that it appears this phone is already being offered to the public in select markets, it will certainly have the competitors guessing about BB next move.

BB has a chance with Windows Phone 8
to regain enterprise users atleast
with the current scope of OS WP-Blue its very promising that WP9 should be a massive, lucrative adaption factor for enterprise users
