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."

BlackBerry was a niche device for most of its history, mostly because of its cost and because its features were more aligned to corporate and government use. The only reason why it looks like a has been is because it had a brief moment in the spotlight as a consumer oriented device, where RIM faltered because they weren't really a consumer oriented company to start with.
