But certainly my country does not reflect the world. BB users do not need quad core because they do not have one. BB users do not need loads of applications because they do not have one AND the device can not handle loads of applications. BB users only need lots and lots of OS upgrades because they need desperately to re-flash their device over and over again due to all varieties of bugs and errors that crash the OS.. like the legendary "error 507 white screen"... Hail Blackberry.....
if we have to go as per the specs its going to be killer phone.
Battery can be removed.
Bluetooth with memory card slot
not over sized display like 4.7 4.8 etc
app and apps are portable
2 gigs of ram
hoping to get the hands on of this hybrid phone with so called apps apps apps apps
i am eagerly waitin for this one . for this i just bought a playbook......................
i waitin and saving money....
In the past i did not like blackberry at all but now and with this version i liked
Maybe it's good, but tat screen size/large bezel and specs just scream mid end.
This will get RIM 3rd platform status by end of year.
Will be best BYOD device, period.
Best browser, best keyboard including virtual keyboard.
No need for quad-core if OS and apps don't require it.
Best social integration, period.
No stupid home button, that's so 2007!
Removable battery, HDMI out, standard USB connector and of cause, hot swappable memory card.
Who needs a million apps, when you only use 30!!!!? Which they will have 95% of.
Don't hate, appreciate!
Why can't Apple and Samsung give free internet browsing. That way no one will give Blackberry a second look. BIS and BBM are the lifejackets for RIM.

From $6 to $16, RIMM's stock is up 166%. From $700 to $500, AAPL is down almost 30%. All since last September. I'm no fan boy of this or that brand. FYI, right now I'm bullish on both AAPL and RIMM. I'm still holding my RIMM Jun'13 15.0 call options though it's already up 200%, and I just iniated my position in Apple by buying April'13 600 call when the stock was at $486 few days ago.
I was able to use a dev kit as I am sales person in one of the UK retail shops, and to be honest it make me very impresed. Maybe it is dual core but it works very smood. Software is running very smood and I am thinking personaly to get one for my self. I am not saying that other phones are bad, but this one it's a realy good pcs of kit.
looks unremarkable in every way. OS10 adds nothign of practical use. Love the 9800 Torch and am staying with it.
HKFoo, 19 Jan 2013hello brader from indonesia, learn your english first before comment.. your english is a l... morenot a little bit bro, but it's really hard for me to understand what she/he mean :D Even google translate can't translate his/her words
This is exactly what I need - business, work, social network and feeds. It please me more.
I work for a telephone company and personally had the chance to meet with RIM and play around with this phone. In terms of the software itself. Its incredibly smooth. After all there is 2 GB of RAM. I don't think this phone will do bad. My only concern with the phone is the quality. The casing seems a little cheap. There is still a very large number of users still using blackberry's and RIM is offering some very enticing incentives for developers to develop apps on their platform. My suggestion is to keep an open mind, I cant see someone playing around with this phone and then calling it trash. Lastly remember people RIM was able to stay alive because of their ability to deliver on security so well. Using RIM means being safe in an environment where the number of viruses circulating is growing exponentially.
