PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "A recent poll by MKM Partners reveals that an overwhelming 83% of Americans do not know that BlackBerry has launched their new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone or new Blackberry 10 platform. The company's trouble does not just include marketing woes. The Wall Street Journal reports that over 50% of customers have returned their BlackBerry smartphones after trying out the platform. That is not to say that BlackBerry hasn't reached the top of any list. We learned today that BlackBerry is the most undesirable smart phone, learning that 71% of people would not consider the BlackBerry under any circumstances." BlackBerry denies the return rate figures, but that still leaves the others. This is devastating.

For example, all my purchased apps are in the Play Store.

I had the same fear when I switched to WP8, after two years of Android, so I took a look in Google Wallet where they show you all your app purchases. I had bought about 30 apps (I bought all the apps I used, even if they had a free, ad supported, version) and spent a total of 50 bucks. I can live with losing that money, it's not that much, like I had initially thought before looking.
