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'.

If you have more average RAM usage, you need to include more RAM, which draws more power.


And there are your errors. You assume all of the RAM is always on use (read/write opposed to keep-state/refresh) and assume a single 1GB RAM unit takes significant more power then a single 2GB RAM unit so it has huge effects on daily battery-life. All three wrong.

I really don't think you're qualified to definitely speak to that, given that you've never handled a BB10 device.

On the other hand, reviewers have noted that the Z10 has had troublesome battery life. There's an issue somewhere.

Thats your technical contra-argument as developer? Boy, you got just punked again :-)

This is how the battery conversation should have started. Then I could reply: Yes, there is. The LTE-integration seems to be not good yet compared to iOS/Android. But then both needed longer time to optimize too and I have no doubt updates for that will address over time.
