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."

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.

Probably the best input device was jog dial ("wheel") of old Sony mobile phones. Too bad modern UIs outgrew such one-dimensional navigation.
