BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 has been released. The biggest new feature is much better support for Android applications - you no longer have to convert APK files into BAR files, and can install them as-is. BlackBerry details the other, smaller improvements as well.

I still have yet to see any BlackBerry 10 device, which makes me sad - I'd love to see what it's all about.

Not for the PlayBook. Sad, I kinda love a QNX tablet with solid quality hardware.

Otherwise, I think BlackBerry still has something to offer that others don't, like better security and high quality standards, but I'm not sure if the difference is as big as 3 years ago. I feel that the gap has become less wide. Today, there is less reason to buy BlackBerry. However, recently the Pentagon has placed a big order, so for the security-minded and for corporate use, they are still competitive.

O, and did I mention the greatness that is QNX?
