General Development "BlackBerry 10 is completely different from previous BlackBerry operating systemsâ€"with good reason. Its core assets come from a company named QNX, which Research In Motion acquired in 2010. Blackberry 10 features include 'live tiles' that dynamically refresh with new information, as well as a revamped keyboard and security upgrades. But what really makes or breaks a phone is the quality (and quantity) of its third-party apps. So what we'll do here is look at the programming API. That will give us a good grip on what app developers can do with the platform."

I'm not so pessimistic about BB. We've yet to see numbers from them, but if they have an acceptable start then I think they'll be able to avoid death, and maybe even carve themselves a niche.

BB seems to be ticking all the boxes and doing all the right things to kick start an ecosystem. I hope it works, they bring interesting ideas to the table.

I also wonder how BB will fare against Windows Phone and Nokia.
