Default Re: New Smartphone/Z10 owner - advice for BlackBerry

BlackBerry lost virtually their entire US market because they didn't change. Whether it worked or not for some is irrelevant to the fact that they ignored the iPhone and lost market share.

So they HAD to do something different - and BB10 certainly is different.

There have been arguments since day one that too many legacy items were left out. I agree with much of that argument. There have been arguments that there is too much change. I agree with much of that. They had to make it different and they did.

The hype surrounding BB10 was so great in certain circles/websites that it could not possibly have delivered. And, IMHO, it didn't.

Hopefully some software updates will deliver so fixes and returned features. Based on company history, I am not holding my breath.

I am holding my Nokia Lumia 920, which works better for me.
