Anonymous, 21 May 2013How's the battery on the Q10?????D battery is suck
BLACKBERRY Q10 is a good phone no question about that, but for me something is lacking in the Texting department, It needs a Texting AID in the likes of Message Popups and or Presets this things greatly offers ease in typing or sending Text messages especially when you're in a hurry or doing other thing. I think BLACKBERRY will listen to this and include this that are mentioned in the next Software Update 10.2. Thank You.....

Price not a big factor
Jessica , 04 Jun 2013Totally disagree about this phone is for smart people. I bet it can do nothing compare to my p... moreAn app developer thinks that apps are the most important thing about phones. Hardly surprising.
An awful lot of people do not want to have to customise phones by finding suitable apps, finding out whether they wreck the battery life, and finding out whether they carry malware. In the early days of PCs there were lots of small applications, but eventually that all died away and left, for most people, Microsoft Office and email, and maybe a couple of others. Probably 10 large applications cover 90% of PC users.
The new Blackberries are designed for business use - an awful lot of people - and come with 90% of what business people need straight out of the box. The only add-ons I have put on mine are an additional weather forecast and a couple of optional extras from Blackberry themselves. I don't spend time fiddling with phones; I just want it to handle all my messages, let me check a few things via the browser, and take clear photos and videos. This it does, and it runs for 2 days on a charge.
If you want a consumer device, there are many options out there. If you want a serious business device, not so many. The 64G iPhone costs a lot more than a Q10 with a 64G SD card, and it costs $100 to change the battery instead of $27, plus you have to take it in to an Apple shop. The Lumia 920 series is big and bulky, and lacks memory. Even if only 5% of the market actually wants a business communicator with a keyboard, that's still a big enough slice to keep Blackberry in business.
After all, who wants an expensive car with hardly any boot and small back seats? But Porsche make a healthy profit.
Is Blackberry suicidal?
Good luck expecting 50 yr old businessmen to bail you out.

Acting? Who's acting? I'm just fed up with people bashing things without having a clue what they're talking about. I may not be well versed on every piece of phone tech out there, but I like to think I know enough to see when someone is just being a tool.

Good phone but overpriced. I have a bb4 so why should I buy this when bb just recently said BBM will soon be available across other pltforms I.e androids, ios applications.
I'll rather wait for BBM to be available for other platforms and then get avery good android phone.
BB made a silly mistake with the pricing, especially when android is commanding the smartphone markets it should have kept the price fairly competitive. At this price people would think twice and prefer waiting for new iphones and androids. moreover bbm would soon be pre installed on androids. So what's the big deal ? Just for qwerty hardware keys people wont get associated in the value.
But what is wrong with Blackberry they just released this super phone and they want to also make BBM available to other smart phones,if u look at it why would they think people would want to still rush this phone! I'm worried for Blackberry cos they just made a breakthrough with the Z10 and now this :(
i think BlackBerry is profoundly good in packing features and security and quality, BUT they miss out one important thing, not everyone is a businessmen and not everyone has a heavy pocket, i think BlackBerry should take a hint from the competition and design their device to suit the "non-business" group, or better yet combine the features of a business oriented design with casual user needs. that would make a helluva phone, who wouldn't like a power packed device which is more than adequate for casual use and for serious business needs, i would totally buy a BB if it caters to my needs as an average user.
i think BB should realise this and conform to the norm or risk perishing
BB is already at the bottom of the barrel now, shape up BB or perish!!

I never said it was easy to port apps, but it is possible and done very often. A BlackBerry 10 app is considered to be stopped only if it is not visible as an Active Frame and doesn't have permission to run in the background. If your apps are being 'force closed' you're not gaining the right permissions.
When did I say that other phones weren't capable of email? If you look back, you'll notice I was talking about when data wasn't included in every mobile phone contract. Back when most people were using 3310s. You couldn't exactly use a 3310 for true business needs.
I don't see why you have a problem with my understanding of BIS. A subscription, specifically for BB, so you can access the emails and features for a flat fee rather than paying per day or per MB.
I don't think its me that has a problem understanding things. You seriously, improve your English before posting.
Of course Blackberry are struggling... Who said they weren't? Oh yeah, you! When you called people "copy nut" for buying them. Now you're contradicting yourself. Excellent.

Feel no offense; I dont think I need to explain in what I am a apps developer but for sure you are not. Apps does not exist in such a way from porting one to another OS. How well a device is designed to handle apps and how well users can access the apps via a device is the key. Clearly, you are only satisfies by porting apps from google ereader to your BB probably.
Understood that not all users need about 70,000k apps but please bear in mind that if compare to IOS and Android, there are 10 times different, if it was so easy like what you said, why dont BB just port over everything from IOS and droid to their BB world? Let me explain, the device (BB) are not able to handle most of the apps in a standardized coding, some apps were able to be ported over but it has to be stayed running and drain the battery; some apps cannot fit in nicely due to the screen resolution where a complete recoding is necessary; worse in some cases, some apps were totally not able to be ported in to BB device which has no explanation from Blackberry itself. The systems will only show FORCE CLOSE for the apps. We have ask Blackberry directly why is this happening, even they themselves are not able to answer. I still remember we are working with a company called Tencent to port in a software name QQ few year ago, we only managed to get this things done in 1 year 4 months just only for this apps due to the security encrypted communication Inflow and Outflow for a blackberry device. And I believe that it can only be installed in certain country only. Blackberry are very keen to work with any apps develop firm to strength their apps compatibility issue since long ago.
I myself owned a android, IOS as well as BB Q10. Due to my working nature I have no choice but to carry most of them with me at all time.
In term of emails, many of the current device IOS, android, windows can perform perfectly with push mail service, even for POP3 etc. How well you know about the why blackberry classify as a business phone? Because of the security. It takes time for me to explain, I will skip this. But to be very frank, are your information that private and important?
I dont think you understand what is the different between BIS and a data plan as well. Please do some research and let us know you comment.
Clearly that blackberry was in a struggling position to sustain themselves in the current mobile market. Thanks for viewing.
