PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Thorsten Heins, BlackBerry's CEO: "Apple did a fantastic job in bringing touch devices to market ... They did a fantastic job with the user interface, they are a design icon. There is a reason why they were so successful, and we actually have to admit this and respect that. History repeats itself again I guess ... the rate of innovation is so high in our industry that if you don't innovate at that speed you can be replaced pretty quickly. The user interface on the iPhone, with all due respect for what this invention was all about is now five years old." Ironic, perhaps, that this comes from a BlackBerry CEO, but that doesn't make him wrong - although I'm sure the usual suspects will claim that it does.

And Wine comes to Android, Android compatibility to Windows, so what? A sign both are weak or that compatibility, being able to run foreign apps is demanded by, you know, customers?
BB10 btw comes also with Qt, with HTML5 and AIR and isn't the only platform there either. Compatibility is great. So whats your motivation to complain they didn't NIH like eg Microsoft did with incompatible Metro x86/RT/WP and prevent active to be compatible?
