PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "With BlackBerry 10's official launch just around the corner, we happened upon a few photos of the final gold master version of the operating system running on a BlackBerry Z10 handset. Well, thanks to a close source at BlackBerry, we actually can show you about 100 photos of the phone's operating system in full detail. Every screen, every option menu, every app - let's take a ride together." Eh. Let's hope using it is a better experience than looking at it.

I don't know, I'm excited by this stuff. I'm the kind of person that takes every menu and option in a device and checks it out.

BTW, BB10 looks pretty good. For the sake of competition and variety, go Blackberry!

I couldn't have said it better. I'm excited to try one out when they come to my Sprint store this summer. I have a feeling I may just end up with one too, if I like what I see then.

Just based on these screenshots I already know I like the interface better than Android 4.1. Of course, I went from a Treo 650 to an original iPhone to a BlackBerry, where I stayed for several years before getting my first Android phone in late 2010, so I'm partial to the platform anyway. It's rock-solid and reliable as a communication platform, unlike most other smartphones I've had.

I just hope the full touchscreen and consumer-friendly focus doesn't detract from that reliability.

I'm kinda bummed that you'll probably need a special Blackberry plan.

I guess you didn't have amodel with the "pearl". Having a trackball might sound like a great idea but only until you used one. We had a load of BB's with the pearl and on almost all of them the trackball stopped working properly sooner rather than later. The BB forums where filled with questions on how to clean the trackball something that was unfortunately not easily done without damaging the phone to some degree.

And of course, there are the infamously overpriced dataplans. The word from upon high soon became "don't download large emails, don't open large attachments, don't surf the net". Soft of defeated the purpose of having a BB.
