Default Re: Apps for Q10 - What the hell?

BlackBerry has NEVER been the platform for app hounds. For most if BlackBerry's time they were never concerned with apps or general consumer acceptance. Not until the Curve 8300 did BlackBerrys even have external storage. And it's only in the last 4 years or so that BlackBerry made a concerted effort to push into the general consumer space. Their focus had been enterprise from the beginning. The push for the general consumer didn't go very well. Between their own blunders, too many to count really, and the headwinds competing with both iOS and. Android, BlackBerry has fallen on heard times. If it was an uphill battle to court developers before it's like climbing K2 now. BB10 is perhaps BlackBerry's last gasp at staying relevant. It will take time to get apps ported to the platform. So either you're patient and content with BlackBerry's strengths right now or you're buying an iPhone.
