I've been working in IT at a 200.000+ employee bank (worldwide) and all BB users had an extra phone of their own in order to do things the policy did not allow (almost everything apart from phone and mail).
The ones that loved gadgets had 4s or S3, most of the others some android dev. and just a few some low-end device.
With the "balance" feature in BB10 there is no need to carry two devices with you! (unless you want to play mkv's or 3D games)
My guess is lot of kids will be getting used high-end phones as presents this year...
M a hardcore apple user (ip5). I know I will get comments like then what m doing on this page. But still would like to share an opinion being an apple user. Saw every detail if the OS, very nice slick and smooth, excellent gestures, BBM video chat a + but screen sharing feature in that ( awesome ). No need for quad core and 1080p if the phone runs smooth, and I think so it's running fine after seeing initial videos. But now BLACKBERRY (RIM) should look into final big factors (price & quality apps) just filling the AppStore with crap apps won't work. They should put all there resources into app control (quality). And also the price as they can't charge any premium now. Premium time is later on with Next Ben devices. As if now they have pulled it together very well. But now is the tricky stage ahead. I hope so this OS stays. As is better for a consumer to have more options.
looks like a big head baby lol. again blackberry has made the dumpy design. who crazy people gonna buy it... sgs2 is more beter than it. snapdragon processor what a sucks.....
AJB, 30 Jan 2013LOL this is bull...I really thought this phone would be better. I have Nexus 4, and hits BB10 ... moreThe display is HD ya NOOB 720p with 355 PPI and you dont need a quad code in a phone if the os can run smoothly the reason why android needs quad core is that its a glitchy software that isnt optimized with hardware since there are so many different hardware out there running android I know since ive owned android and I remember when my scotiabank app wouldnt work for my LG phone but worked for my friends galaxy. I love android trust me over Iphone any day but with the vast hardware it has and constant updates I dont think its stable and I personally do not want only android and iOS running the place its good to have competition
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2013Why haven't Blackberry included wireless hotspot? Android and IOS have it. For me, it's the bi... moreOf course BB has hotspot my Curve 9360 even has mobile hotspot.....i use it when I am on the road
Finally BB has realized that it need to keep up with the hardware demands. Im a nokia fan (NOKIA TILL I DIE), and Ive never liked BB devices (well maybe the 9700), but this is a huge improvement specs wise. We need more mobile OS on the market, getting tired of android everywhere I go. Though I wont buy it, BB os definitely brings variety to the table...good job RIM
Quite fat with poor hardware for a flagship of dying out company. The last mistake of RIM.
saw a pre-order in kuwait, the price is almost same as Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, HTC One X,....hmmmmmmmm
the white one is marvelous. but 1800mah battey? not sure about this. other than this, i would surely buy this phone
haider3781, 30 Jan 2013little baby of Nokia N9Totally agree, baby of N9, no buttons n swypes. Y nokia, Y!! N9 is such a great phone!
