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'.

This Android compatibility everywhere needs to die.

I'm willing to give BB a shot maybe 6 - 12 months down the road, but only if the majority of applications are native. I already have an Android device for Android apps, and tbh, I'm not that satisfied with the quality (it's a Nexus 7 btw, so don't give me bull about having an obscure unsupported device). Hope to see devs taking BB10 seriously.

I'm worried about how BlackBerry World will look a year from now. Potentially a bigger wasteland than the Android app store.

Similar worries on my end. The Play Store is just a couple of steps away from being a full-on warez cesspool, imho. It'll be interesting to see how BB World goes about its QC process.
