    Hmm, cant say I expect RIM to survive this as I had someone from RIM presenting the key developments of BB10 and how it would change everything, got to play around with some prototypes and it didnt really seem that great as everything seems to really be copied from Apple or Google, it isnt really innovative it has alot of the good points of both OS but lacks anything new its pretty much a generic design.

    RIM really needs a decent idea much like how Microsoft went from WM6.5 to WP7, unfortunately it really isnt anywhere near this. I guess the saving grace is that they keep saying how easy it is to port android apps to their system, you dont even need to use c# for coding anymore which i guess can be good at some point.

    Hopefully it works for RIM but I really cant see this being enough, their handsets need to change first as every BB ive seen has a boot up time for over 2 minutes! And they just dont seem to work as well as other devices.

    That is good news. I like my Blackberry (or did until the last but one OS update hogged most of the storage space) and I'm not keen on the iPhone or Android.

    So it will be interesting to see what it is like, and how aggressively priced it will be.

    I am looking forward to seeing what the final device will be like in the hand.

    Re: News - BlackBerry 10 will be launched at the end of January 2013

    I had four blackberries in a row. I am now on Android.

    Four me the failing of RIM has not been in keeping up with Android or IOS, it has been the failure of the devices to deliver their multi day usage. My last one a Curve 9380 gave me a working days use, the actual device was great, the camera was very good, multimedia handling was good (Podcast handling could do with some improvements). And generally it was well thought and the software integrated well together. It could have done with Gorilla Glass as the screen got scratched earlier on. And the cryptographic batteries were ****e. After market ones never work reliably.

    It'll be interesting to see what they ultimately come out with, but it will have to a massive improvement on both Android or IOS to even tempt me back.

    rested too much on their laurels like Nokia, but the lower end stuff is poorly built. The cameras on the low end curves were diabolical for instance

    I was happy with my Blackberry before I got sick of the freezing op and failed apps... the Huawei android that I changed to was much easier and smoother to use, and I can't see me going back any time soon.
