The article has nothing to do with Apple.

So why post your negative agenda and opinion on the iPhone 5C and 5S?

Unfortunately so called industry commentators are the main cause of recent BB demise with their all negative comments. Yet when people actually use BB10 are are really surprised just how good it is. World wide negative publicity nearly also killed off Nokia. Frankly I rather have a BBZ10 than an Android mobile with its major security issues and need for huge power just to run an os. Is this what is called technology advancement or just clever marketing to the great unwashed out there in geekland. I am tired of just how gullible and naive geekland really is with your orgasmic fascination with such mediocre incremental gains say with Samsung mobiles. Add a core and you think you know everything. Open your eyes for a change, or better still go and get a life.

Let's hope this will result in a Palm Pre 3 story for the Q10.
