General Development "BlackBerry 10 is completely different from previous BlackBerry operating systemsâ€"with good reason. Its core assets come from a company named QNX, which Research In Motion acquired in 2010. Blackberry 10 features include 'live tiles' that dynamically refresh with new information, as well as a revamped keyboard and security upgrades. But what really makes or breaks a phone is the quality (and quantity) of its third-party apps. So what we'll do here is look at the programming API. That will give us a good grip on what app developers can do with the platform."

Whether they realize it or not, Blackberry is dead. Finished. Kaput.


I don't give them much of a shot either, but it isn't because of lack of effort. BB10 is actually pretty damn nice (my co-worker bought a Z10 and it is pretty solid), I just don't know if they can make up so much lost ground...

If their marketshare starts to climb over the next year, even a little bit, I wouldn't completely count them out. Well see I guess.

The fact that they still exist is pathetic, like a former movie star trying to make a comeback, when their 15 minutes of fame died a long time ago.


That seems a bit over the top to me... 15 minutes of fame? They reigned over the smartphone market before it was even called that - have a little respect for your elders ;)

Anyway, Hollywood is riddled with aging movie stars that somehow made a comeback after all but disappearing. Its not like it never happens...
