PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, today, RIM announced its Hail Mary - a brand new mobile operating system (well, sort-of new), as well as two new devices. In addition, the Canadian company also officially changed its name from Research In Motion to Blackberry. The first few reviews of Blackberry 10 are already out, and it's not bad. The problem, however, is that in the case of Blackberry, 'not bad' could easily mean 'not good enough'.

It's really nice, but as Thom says, the UI is kind of a mess. I'm surprised they didn't keep going in the same direction as the playbook, which made a lot of sense. Instead they have taken several elements (even icons) from ICS and ended up with a strange mashup.

Still, just like the playbook, the gestures are very nice and once you get a hang of them it feels comfortable. Still though, I think overall in usability, my Nexus 7 with Jelly Bean beats the crap out of anything else.
