Are these BlackBerry people moving forward or backwards? Lol. It's too clear that they have lost it. I live in an 'emerging market' and and almost everyone I know uses a good speced Droid or an iPhone. This phone should only sell if it's gonna cost below $100 unlocked.
Another new budget bb os7 ?
Are this going to release in india and indonesia only ??
Are you so blindly believe your out of date os7 going to help you take money from developed country customers ???
Then there is no hope anymore for you..
You better be out of game as soon as posibble, to give more room to more creative, future oriented players
Let's just say that BB, you might not be around to make phones in 2015 anymore, or who knows, maybe even 2014 Q3-4. Sad that the company who started smartphone age is now close to it's pitiful demise.
I was born, and still live in an emerging market. I wouldn't even bother spitting on this new so-called smartphone. BB - please keep your phones in Canada, or wherever they're assembled !
Ziggy, 27 Jul 2013because rim is from canadaBut still BB10 OS and other BB OS has NSA codes written in.
rob85, 26 Jul 2013there is absolutely no commonality between BB10 and MeeGo OS, I have no idea where you've got ... moreMeanwhile on my N9, I could open up to 20 applications and it never crashed, surprisingly, a three year old device could compete to todays smartphones. Build quality is impeccable.
rob85, 26 Jul 2013there is absolutely no commonality between BB10 and MeeGo OS, I have no idea where you've got ... moreSwipe up to close an app-BB10 and MeeGo. BB10 copied the entire UI of MeeGo OS and how come BB10 doesn't leak user info to NSA since it's a USA technology? All USA based OSes have NSA codes written in.
there is absolutely no commonality between BB10 and MeeGo OS, I have no idea where you've got that parallel from. With BB10 you can multitask (for real!), it never crashes or reboot, it integrates all you apps (calendar, emails, pictures, contacts, chat), you can share documents remotely, you can edit picture before saving them on your phone, etc. It is in many aspects the best OS around by far. Wake up and take a serious look at it before judging. ...and by the way, your personal data won't be share with the NSA if you have a BB (while Google and Apple are open books for NSA)
Here in India BlackBerry released BB Q5 with almost specs like two years ago with a new OS, BB10 OS which is totally a copy of MeeGo OS and are costing 25,000 Rupees ($500) and BB calls it a budget BB phone. Lol. This company has no future. Who will buy Q5 when even cheap Chinese craps are coming with better specs and low price? Maybe some corporate users but not a major user group. BlackBerry should aggressively price their phones to gain some market share. BB Q5 should cost 15,000 rupees at least. Now BlackBerry is releasing phones with outdated OS. Was it too hard to put BB10 OS in this phone? BB has no future, no hopes left.
I still don't get it... Why they go forth to bb10 and now back to bb7...
Its like android going to 4.3 and back to 3.2... What the hell?
Blackberry OS 10 uses about a gig of ram on idle so this wouldnt be budget friendly running it as they would have to up the hardware to atleast the q5 specs.
very nice mobile is a BB this is a best mobile......................
