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'.

"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.

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

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

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.

Sorry, when you've proven over and over again that you are immune to logic, I fail to see the need in fact-checking everything that you say. I'd be here all day trying to correct the glaring technical misrepresentations in your comments.

Besides, it is much simpler for me to point out that you haven't had the time to independently verify your claim yourself, so it is irrelevant to this discussion.

Battery life is seldom decided by one feature, and more likely than not, it is a combination of poor OS optimizations, a less elegant multitasking solution, power hungry LTE chips, and anything else in between. I don't think I ever said that multitasking was the singular reason for poor battery life, just a contributing factor.
