    I jumped on the Blackberry Playbook bandwagon when they were going for £129 at Pcworld. To be honest I was very taken by the build quality and UI. Very very nice device, now if they can implement the Android App Store more fully instead of pretending to have their own and concentrate on building quality devices with excellent UIs they could carve out a market for themselves I'm sure.

    What was particularly refreshing was that the user interface is nothing akin to the iOS or Android systems, and it works beautifully.

    I would say yawn, but there are a lack of smartphones on android , ios, or windows that have qwert keypads, which RIM need to continue exploit.

    Looks quite androidy, not that thats a bad thing but its slightly uninspired. I do quite like the 'peek' idea, much better take on multi-tasking than any of the other mobile OSes i have seen so far.

    I really hope RIM make this a success as I'm sick of using a touchscreen to type.

    Pretty tempted by the current "fire sale" on the PlayBook's - e.g. local PC World has the 64GB model for that ridiculous (£129) price. Thinking that this'd make a good/cheap Android tablet if I couldn't sideload Android apps.
    Only thing that's putting me off is how efficient this TI processor is compared to the Tegra3 in the Nexus.
    Everything in the new BB10 flows around the BlackBerry Hub. Just like in the BlackBerry Playbook OS there will still be apps but they float above the hub like a stack of playing cards.
    Erm, like webOS then?

    Joking aside, I really hope that someone ports the webOS UI layer to Android (if it's possible). If you've not got 100's of apps then I find it an easier/faster way to interact than either ICS or iOS.

    As an avid blackberry user and Crackberry member, I am looking forward to BB10.

    Unfortunately not a fan of full touch screen phones since RIM ditched the surepress from the Storm series.

    The new OS looks awesome and is defo looking to stand out on its own with certain features.

    Will wait to see how the qwerty keyboard devices workb with BB10.

    I hope they also drop the blackberry email tax, support qwerty keypads properly and remember that battery life is important. I contemplated a 9320 when buying a phone last weekend, but ended up with a Nokia Asha201 instead as I don't see why I should pay £5 more / month to collect email. For business BES is great, for me personally I don't need 'secure' mail or BBM.

    it should be called Blackberry Swipe in honour of its massive similarity in resemblance and interaction with Nokia's N9.

    I say this as a good thing, as I own and love my N9, and am delighted i have a replacement ready for when the N9 leaves this mortal coil.
