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."

A great way to raise your blood pressure: disassemble the phone and watch parts of the trackball mechanism disperse.

If you find them all it is possible to put it back together again.

I did it in a desperate attempt to turn the Bold 9000 trackball white again, but I failed. The discolored trackball was a mayor annoyance.

And of course sometimes it would get stuck.

The newer Bolds had a trackpad, which couldn't get stuck, but it was even more lousy to operate the phone. If the trackball worked you could operate the phone quite quick.
