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.

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-...

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.
