re: BlackBerry 10: Right For You?
I wont even begin to list all the reasons this article is ridiculous. I will offer this however. After reading this piece of uninformed, unbalanced garbage, I feel the headline should read "My horribly biased and uninformative writing: Right For You?"

re: BlackBerry 10: Right For You?
So after reading most of the comments and the article here are a few things to think about. BlackBerry is still in trouble and that is a fact. BB10 aside for a moment as they are under pressure to reduce fees and that is where they make a lot of cash. BB10 does look good and I hope it does well, but I think it is a little too late. Remember, they are porting DROID apps too... The apps may be free on your DROID, but prices for the exact app change when they hit the blackberry app world. Seen it to first hand... As of right now there are very limited accessories for BB10, unlike iOS. Who really cares about security these days... I think it has been very relaxed due to byod taking over. On top of all of this why would you buy a BB when you may have been burned by them in the past? Not knowing where the company will be or if it will be split up does not make me want to go out and buy one. Look what happened to Nortel... Could happen to BB one day. Changing their name does not help either, it is the same old business with less people working there. Some very good people left there due to the uncertain times and some good ones were let go...
I hope BB10 does good, but I have moved on like many others. Been there with BB and just got tired of the battery pulls, etc. Hope they will be around in the future, but their market share is very small in he US right now... I also don't see people wanting to line up to buy their devices in the US like iOS phones. Oh yeah, they outsourced a good portion of IT to NCR and the CIO left too. I think they are imploding in many areas and more cuts will be coming.

Smartphone business is tough to be in. Always have to be one step ahead.

I find it curious that 'essentials' include social networking. BB remains, regardless of market share, the best business tool for 'business'. I can look up a company contact, type an email, and access my calendar faster than any of my other iOS co-workers, despite not having access to 800,000 apps - if i want to play games, I have a computer; I use my smartphone to do work.

re: BlackBerry 10: Right For You?
I am optimistic about how these new BlackBerry phones will actually be. I've seen them in action, and there's some exciting stuff there. But I really have to wait and use them, first. Everything else is just conjecture and speculation -- but isn't that a fun sport, too? While I am optimistic about the phone, and while I'd like to see BlackBerry compete with Android, iOS and Windows Phone, the one thing those others are developing is an ecosystem of data gathering -- about location, about media & entertainment, about my social footprint, about my purchasing, about my browsing. And while that is pretty scary on the one hand, it's also pretty powerful. I see BlackBerry offering a great new phone and OS, but not a cloud-based personal digital assistant ecosystem.

Its the only high-end 4" to 4.5" class device that I know of with good local storage expandibility: A micro-SDXC slot that is good for 64GB and possibly more in the future.
