PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's about time. RIM is in deep trouble, and is seeing its smartphone market share being eaten left and right by Android and iOS. After being more or less the equivalent of a deer caught in the headlights, the company has now finally unveiled its answer to the original iPhone - 5 years too late.

It's right there in the article.

All in all, while I'm all for a new platform - the more the merrier - I'm wondering what, exactly, BlackBerry 10 has to offer over the competition. iOS has the Apple factor, Android has the openness, freedom to tinker, and customisability, and Windows Phone 7.5 has the uniqueness and quirkiness of Metro. What does BB10 have?

> Windows Phone 7.5 has the uniqueness and quirkiness of Metro

It's just that this is a problem and not a solution as proven daily by the sells numbers. LG says lesser then 2% do like that "uniqueness and quirkiness". Stating that the disadvantage is an advantage is like stating the bug that deletes your data is a feature that cleans up your data for you.

while you're proclaiming your love for Windows Phone


I was answering that question. The reason Thom loves Windows Phone is because is brings something new to the table. Almost everything in BB10 has already been done.
