While I agree that there are those of us that still like our blackberries and have not yet defected to the other side, and the OS7 phones are probably the best BB's so far, and i personally (before you all jump down my throat i am speaking personally) would love to swap my 9800 for a 9900, however i am holding back for the BB10 as i am sure many others are. The thing is the hype for BB10 is good but the release is a long way away, if I were in charge of RIM I would pull out all the stops to release the phone before the next big Windows release and before the next IPhone, it needs to make a splash and not come out at the same time and be overwhelmed by the Apple machine, which it will be even if it is a better phone (again I am not saying it will be better, but it won't matter if it is released at the same time).
It will be difficult to keep the bus going, you have the SIII being released and pushed in the UK as the official phone for the Olympics, then with all the expectation will be released in the US and may well overshadow the BB10
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful, and optimistic. And we will change the world. - Jack Layton (1950-2011)
