With all due respect, BlackBerry 10 should annihilate Apple, Google and Windows Operating Systems.
Hope so for competition sake.

It's great to see Apple slumping for once, and it continues week by week, month by month. I am sure BB10's massive launch along with Windows Phone will not help them all that much. I don't see Android slumping anytime soon despite BB10 and Windows, but Apple, yes I can see them losing market share by as much as 15% by the end of the year IMO :)

RIM shows surprising growth, readies for BlackBerry 10
http://www.firstpost.com/tech/rim-shows-surprising-growth-readies-for-blackberry-10-468426.html
-----------------------------------------
RIM FACTS:
$2.3B in cash and no Debt.
80+ Million Subscribers (Global)
60+ Million BBM Users (Global)
3+Billion App Downloads
200K+ Enterprise Servers
Global network connecting 650+ partners in 175 Countries.
90% of Fortune 500 Companies
5+ Million new Subscribers joined BB in 2012 up from 2011.

RIM owns QNX and all it's patents. QNX being one of the most secure, powerful Operating Systems in the world. Have you used a Playbook? That is just the beginning.

So next time you hear, “BlackBerry is dead!” or, “RIM is going down,” remind the poor, uninformed soul of some of the facts. Numbers don’t lie. BlackBerry is FAR from dead.
Hopefully BB10 takes back some market share. Acually I wouldn't mind seeing both Blackberry 10 and Windows Phone strip market share from both Samsung (Android) and Apple (iPhone). This back and forth is great competition and an incentive to innovate :D

Bump.
We have less than 5 Days until the greatest mobile platform gets launched. BlackBerry 10 has been rated very high as being the best platform even before it's official launch date. :)

BlackBerry finally launches the greatest mobile platform ever released in the world. And reception has been very positive. Black is Back. The BB10 Z10 outselling iPhone 5 in the UK. 1st it was the PlayBook outselling the iPad in the UK, now the Superior Z10.

Awesome, In the UK, BlackBerry's Z10 is in high demand and sells several 100's of Thousands
Stores had line ups all around the buildings. Carrier rumours have stated approx: 400,000 to 500,000 sold with demand increasing every day as word of mouth gets spread.

http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2013/02/01/rimm-jefferies-pounds-the-table-on-software-prospects-z10-sales/

In Canada demand exceeds supply. That was about 2 weeks ago. Carrier employee from Rogers stated. I hope BB did not underestimate the demand for the Z10.

Apple's age old iOS and Googles Malware infested Android is no match for BlackBerry's QNX.
BlackBerry was behind about 2 years, now with BlackBerry 10 they've not only caught up, but have surpassed the competition in innovation, style, speed, design, Superior OS, etc., just to name a few.

It's about time BB10 takes back market share. :D

BlackBerry 10 - Recipe On How To Attract Android And iOS Users
http://atinsider.simplesite.com/
By: ATInsider - January 30, 2013

After reading and studying all the negative press all accross the world in relation to RIM's proposed demise, I've come to the conclusion that RIM is not going anywhere anytime soon. As a matter of fact, RIM may very well see it's best year ever in its history.

In my personal opinion, it seems as though many would really like to see RIM once and for all be removed from competition so others may floorish. This is what I've been desifering from many negative news releases. There's a lot of anger in this smart phone industry.

So why all the negativity toward RIM? Wasn't it RIM that invented the "Smart Phone" called the BlackBerry? Yes, they took innovation to the extreme and launched this new unique mobile platform experience. RIM was responsible for pushing this particular industry into what we know and have today.

Then came the competition. Personally competition is great news, RIM was caught sleeping at the helm, and yes this happends. They let Google's Android and Apple's iOS dominate, flurish, and strip away market share from RIM. This is well deserved for both competators because they too pushed innovation, took what RIM created and made it much better.

If RIM did not pioneer the Smart Phone, then were would we be today? I think everybody should be rootring for BlackBerry 10's success, especially people that currently use Android and iOS based devices. Why you may ask, well haven't you all enjoyed the innovations brought to us by Android and iOS at the time BlackBerry was the dominating player.

The same can now be said for RIM's BlackBerry 10 platform. This process is repeating itself, but this time it's the creator, the inventor, the pioneer of the Smart Phone and the last thing we need in this industry is to block innovation at its finest, because if we had done so in the past, we wouldn't have gone this far in mobile technology.

Lets take a page out of Aristotle, the Ancient Greek (384 BC-322 BC) that lived in Athens Greece. He came out with many interesting theory's many that we use today, many that were correct and many that were eventually proven wrong. It's the last that interests me, because if it wasn't for Aristotle and his theory's this world would be more than 2,000 years behind in technology alone. You see becuase of Aristotle, he made people think, he made people try to prove him wrong. This is how we evolved and advanced, by making people think outside the box. The same can be applied to the mobile industry.

We should all be excited about BlackBerry 10 and what it offers and how it may once again potencially streer the industry in the right direction, into the future. BlackBerry 10, being the best mobile platform ever created to date will now further motivate Google, Apple and Windows to push innovation for a healthy competative market.

I am very exited about BlackBerry 10 and where it's going to lead us.

Ya think he has stock with them? After reading this Id say there is some secret incentive. :laugh: Anyway I had a BB it was OK of course it wasn't a 10 but still to me its just another fad. Next week next month another "new" phone will come out. Then all the kids these days will flock to it. Look at Apple now. It wasn't that long ago everyone and their mamma wanted a iphone 5. What a waste now it must a been a real POS. :confused:

The phone looks like it has nice features. I hope they do stay in business as it is always good to have competition.

Just one question. Where the heck are all these people getting money to buy a new phone every time a new one shows its face? I see kids many with no job with several $400-500.00 phones. It just makes no sence especially when this country is in such poor shape with the massive lack of jobs and millions of people living off government checks. Society has lost its marbles I swear. :shadedshu

I know what you mean. I assume someone (their parents) buy them for them, or they have expensive monthly plans. Some of them have jobs though. I think most people on this forum has jobs, judging by their system specs and how often they swap GPU's. :p

3 year plans and the Z10 costs $149 and $139 depending on who the carrier is. $500 to $600 with no contract.

I was not intending to point fingers at forum members if that is the way it read sorry. I meant in general.

I am guilty of buying my daughter a iphone though but it was 1 phone for Christmas and she will be using it till the contract runs out period. Provided it doesnt die. :) I cant afford to buy one every time a new gizmo comes out. :D

I want BB to die for one main reason--they will take all the BESs with them. Oh and it would be satisfying considering how arrogant they once were.

Wonderful, and I want Apple and it's iPhone to die because of there Arrogance.
It's refreshing to see BlackBerry back with the best mobile platform money can buy. And yes they still hold the title as the most secure mobile platform in the world, not to mention VISA approved BlackBerry 10 devises ONLY for mobile transactions :D Yes many want them to die, but the Pioneers, the Innovators, have Re-Engineered, Re-Designed and Re-Innovated the Smart Phone and Beyond.

BlackBerry's QNX is untouchable today :D

Everybody copies everybody to a certain extent. How much more can companies differentiate each others Smart Phones?
Would you have preferred a Triangle Z10 :laugh:
BlackBerry didn't copy nobody as much as others didn't copy nobody. It's a competitive market and the only way you can differentiate yourself is from Innovation. This is where BB10 succeeds in a big way, both in Hardware and Software. :D

Well I don't like any arrogance but at least that which exists at Apple is based more in reality and true innovation and accomplishment starting with essentially inventing the personal computer itself. Blackberry got mobile connectivity to the office incl push email done right first and from there... pretty much nothing. And a BES truly is a nightmare to admin as good as it may work on the client side.

You are correct in your statement re. innovation and I will say that 10 looks like it is off to a pretty good start, finally. Had better be for RIM's sake; this is obviously their last chance.

BlackBerry wasn't in as bad shape as people 1st thought. As they lost North American Market Share, they were growing in other countries. Not good to lose your home turf, but unfortunately they did not have a product many people wanted.
2 years of stagnation crippled them in N. America.

But today it has paid off we hope. I never though RIM as a company was arrogant. As a matter of fact, no, not arrogant at all. Though the 2 CO CEO's may have had a hand in why some may consider RIM arrogant.

Well this arrogance of which I speak was likely a major factor behind them not "keeping up" and innovating/updating their platform further earlier. I guess they were blinded by the dollar signs in their eyes and felt they did not need to do anything differently as long as like almost every major enterprise on the plant was driving dumptrucks full of money to their headquarters. Silly not to have known all along that could not last though. Especially in this industry.

I do like that they are Canadian. A nice change from the usual suspects and I have always been a fan of the great white north.

BlackBerry 10 broke sales records in both the UK and Canada. Selling more than 50% more Z10's in Canada in one day and sold more than 3 times in one week in the UK then they ever did in BlackBerry's history. Good Job. :toast:

RIM didn't want to really change because if they have, they would have been forced to re-take the compliance testing and pass it again. These tests were bloody difficult. But they passed. Anyway they opened the door to Apple and Google and they took over the consumers.

RIM woke up when Apple started to take enterprise companies, and that is when the CEO at the time (2010) flat out purchased the QNX OS and its patents.

Anyhow it was a long battle, and yes RIM made a lot of mistakes by miss-judging the business and how truly nasty it can get.

Now they are back and the Z10 has proved to be the best phone in the world hands down.

Well I have not been following this-I care much more about non-mobile hardware still-but I admit to being pleasantly surprised by Z10 from what I see so far.

By the way not so sure how you can call this the "best smartphone in the world" when there isn't even Netflix or most of the other "Top 50" apps available.
Yes there is. They are going to announce it soon.
http://crackberry.com/tags/netflix
Also many other high profile apps have already come to BB10 including Skype.
Also BlackBerry has made it super easy to port over Android Apps. Funny think, they end up running better on BB10 too :D

And this quote below is complete nonsense. Android and iOS does not come close to BlackBerry Security.
there isn't really much reason to go with it, versus a iOS/Android device with MDM or ActiveSync.

Ok...but neither one of you has provided any reasoning or evidence to back up either claim.
