PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, today, RIM announced its Hail Mary - a brand new mobile operating system (well, sort-of new), as well as two new devices. In addition, the Canadian company also officially changed its name from Research In Motion to Blackberry. The first few reviews of Blackberry 10 are already out, and it's not bad. The problem, however, is that in the case of Blackberry, 'not bad' could easily mean 'not good enough'.

Notice BB10 devices ship with 2GB of RAM, necessitated by the fact that more apps are resident in memory at a time.

I know as WP fanboy you will be unaware of that but outside of WP there are platforms indeed doing clever memory management like freezing apps that are invisible in the background. You will also be shocked to read now that there is no difference in battery usage if you have empty RAM or RAM filled with data.

We've come to a point where this "freedom" is more of a handicap

Brave fanboy even taking over the most stupid argument that freedom is a handicap.
