Anonymous, 16 Jan 2013I always think that BB user base is businessmen but most report said that their fan base came ... moreSouth Asia teenagers are heavy into work, maybe? And the BB messenger service -- free -- is an attraction, definitely. Not everyone can afford an iPhone around these parts. And apps ... Oh we'll, like someone said, one would be looking at a maximum of 30. We don't all live and die for apps.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2013No Full HD videos ? Hello ? We it's 2013. I've never used iPhone and was always sticking with ... moreNot sure what you mean - it has 1080p recording, and the screen has a higher pixel density than the ip5. You do realize that...right?
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!
1st step is to get the design and OS right. This, RIM may be getting it right with BB10.
2nd step, vast variety of apps. Now this is still a big question for BB users.
RIM failure was they fail to identify that the market is moving towards world of apps. Instead they have being hiding behind their success of push mail & encryption in the earlier days. Such features is widely available in many smart phones making it not a unique feature of BB.
Wake up RIM! If the new BB10 is getting good response, move fast with apps!
Till then, I'm switching to driod.
Anup, 17 Jan 2013So this will be one of the last devices with TI OMAP processors... Hope it doesn't go the way ... moreThere has already been lengthy discussion that it will be announced with a Snapdragon, NOT an OMAP.
So this will be one of the last devices with TI OMAP processors... Hope it doesn't go the way of the processor...
Well it's definitely coming, I work for a big mobile phone company here in the UK and we have test handsets all over the place. I'm not one for Blackberry's normally but I'd certainly consider this phone for day to day use.
I contacted the publisher and quickly did a subtitle file for this video today. Make sure you enable subtitles to see the English subtitle text
Same like mine nokia n9,some from web os and some from meego,I don't why nokia leave meego.
this is really weird... i was honestly waiting for BB10 since its early glimpses last year... (and I am not BB fan at all... infact i hate it)
BUT, after looking at Ubuntu mobile OS and their use of sides of screen that seems more viable and user friendly compared to what I saw in German narration(didnt understand a thing :( )
Hmm... I always ask myself:
What does the new BB OS (or WP8 for that matter) give me that a custom Android ROM with all the bells and whistles doesn't.
And I must say that Android is good enough for all the apps you'll ever need, except for maybe business apps, but your company must use the BB services in order to fully take advantage of the BB ecosystem.
