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."

Meh is right, the problem with RIM is their past. IE they were a business phone, no one wants that anymore apart from luddite IT managers. Now it's all about BYOT, ie bring your own tech, ie consumer devices in the workplace.

I used to have a blackberry pearl for a phone. The main thing it could do is hold 2000 text messages from a shitty IT system that would page me that some moron's code and fscked up again. They were phone built for IT policies and annoying the fuck out of you. Not for people.
