Okay, full disclosure, I was going to buy a BlackBerry 10 no matter what, and I was going to be happy, no matter what.

But, yes, there are echoes of the PlayBook. The hardware is beautiful, but you find yourself asking, "Couldn't they have done better on this before release?" I don't need to go into detail, it is all being covered elsewhere. Suffice to say there are many things uncompleted, and some irritating bugs.

For me, however, there is enough Wow! to keep me from being too disappointed. The latest (for me) is how the Z10 calculator will automatically switch from a basic mode in portrait view to a scientific calculator when the handset is rotated to landscape view. Cool. And there are other little things that make me smile.

By the way, I am not missing the keyboard when it comes to typing. I do miss keyboard shortcuts, and I still think many common actions take less time and fewer motions with shortcuts than with a touch screen UI, but I'm trying to adapt.
