re: What If Google Ignores BlackBerry 10?
Unfortunately for RIM, even full support from Google wouldn't change RIM's fortunes. You can see Google being very clinical in its lack of app development for RIM: there's really no reason to put a lot of effort into a sinking platform, particularly when there's a strong likelihood that a significant percentage of users abandoning RIM will likely swim into Android's arms.

does this means that we-ll have google competing with more hardware and the others with software/apps/mail/whatever similar to google? if google ignores bb 10, it will survive as the others ( - not so good, besides having an amazing os) i-ve been using google ever since and it-s a powerful tool in all it-s ambits. however, google is a dangerous company because it-s omnipresent and maybe in the future this is what we-ll just have - google products - http://versusio.com/en/google-...

re: What If Google Ignores BlackBerry 10?
I too am a former Blackberry user, and the truth is, the Google services make my Droid Bionic a more than acceptable replacement for my BB. gmail on my Droid is at least as good on my BB, and I keep discovering added value from the other services. Would I go back without native Google apps? Possibly, but it would be a tough sell. RIM would have to convince me that what is available is as good or better than what I can get with a Droid. I owe myself a listen to their story, but I don't owe them a sale.
