I hope this phone will take some market share from android, the most stupid OS.
D79_, 28 Jan 2013You lot are on another planet, always saying every phone looks like an iphone, dam get over it... moreThis BB10 is clearly a rip-off both in terms of hardware and software. And there's increasing competition because BB sales are at a new low, while Nokia are back again (Lumia 920 is GREAT + sells well) and Sony have some interesting concepts (Xperia Z is cool).
2013: Nokia is back as a major player in the smartphone market. Sony becomes a major Android player, putting pressure on Samsung. iPhone sales decrease. HTC sales decrease. BlackBerry dies.
It's a rip-off (the design is just like Sony Xperia). The software, BB10, is another copycat (MeeGo). BBM is not exciting anymore (people now use WhatsApp, even most BB users).
BlackBerry's App World is just too small (Android and iOS have lots more apps, Windows Phone is the fastest growing so droids and iOS will stay at top, WP will race closer to them, while BB will stay in the dust.
So... it now looks like the clear winner of the Nokia vs RIM battle of recovery are the Finns. Nokia have made great tech like wireless charging, extreme responsive touchscreen, great design (better than this Z10), more apps (WP vs BB) and no rip-offs like RIM have done. The Lumia 920 is a top-class handset.
BlackBerry is done. BlackBerry OS is the next Symbian. Its death will surely come in the next 2 years.
CarusDave, 28 Jan 2013The larger top/bottom bezels are used for the gestures, hence no home buttonThe sides of the bezel are also used for gestures.
When people say it looks like iphone what did they expect a triangle-shape phone?
Enough with this iphone and that iphone.
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2013Enormous amount of bezel, even more than iphone. The larger top/bottom bezels are used for the gestures, hence no home button
It's not stunning with these thick bezels and respectively not efficient space usage
You lot are on another planet, always saying every phone looks like an iphone, dam get over it will you all, iphones are basic and lame, they are a thing of the past. Im noa BB fan but this BB does not look like iphone5, coz it has flat edges and round corners you all get way over excited.... ooo iphone clone, bb being samsung etc.. get alife and stop going on about the stupid icrap.
Bet most of you are the ones who likes them photos on facebook where they say, like in 3 seconds and see what happens loool
Ps. Xperia Z is the phone of the year unless the S4 is up to quality standard with the build.
BB should come up with innovations instead copy stuff from androids n iphone ..
looking 4ward for patent issues..
yes agree they look good. but they are rendered images. so the actual phone may be completely different. so lets wait to we see a real one.
marleymadcell, 28 Jan 2013what?! how does that looks like an iphone or has iphonish design... you blind?!.. and how does... moreHow does the UI look "iPhoneish"?! If anything it looks like Android with a few widgets visible.
of course it looks stunning! ...compared to the iPhone, heh heh heh
I see another courtroom battle. Since apple claims any phone that has a rectangular shape with rounded edges is its own design. The last thing RIM would ever want is a patent battle.
the phone looks nothing like iPhone 5 and the interface is pretty slick! I was playing with the phone yesterday and believe that it will bring BB to the smartphone map
what?! how does that looks like an iphone or has iphonish design... you blind?!.. and how does that looks like a Samsung device?!? society with its hunger for destroying not so popular companies is beyond imaginary... now i do agree that the UI does look iphonish but not the device itself
