UI is copied from unbutu . Z10 + BES 10 it's not something where you can find innovation blackberry is dead in near future!!!
    Makes me wonder why people dislike an OS so much that they post extremely negative remarks about it, and then state BB is dead. Of course I know similar posts go out between Android and IOS users and we have all seen the negative comments about Windows 8, but seriously are these remarks necessary?

    Since I use Ubuntu, and Red Hat in the work place in addition to Windows 7, and XP I would definitely not agree with the statement that OS 10 is a copy of Ubuntu. I find this rather amusing in fact since wasn't IOS originally based on Unix which is what Linux is based on, and isn't Android open source also based on Linux?? Don't all the OS's have some things in common. Didn't Apple complain that Android was a copy of IOS, and going further back wasn't there a little tiff between Microsoft and Apple over Windows and weren't both based on Xerox. Wasn't Blackberry the first smartphone (only with a keyboard), and what about all the early PDA's with touch screen interfaces pre Iphone which one could say were precursors to the original IPhone.

    Seriously if we go far enough back I am sure we may find the original system (Abacus anyone). The important thing is that we get something we are comfortable with, the experts on Pinstack do a good job of reviewing the various phones, giving their take on the useability of said phones and then leaving the rest of us to make our decision, albeit at the moment there are not so many BB faithful left, so most of the reviews are likely to have an unintentional bias.

    I on the other hand have still not upgraded (am now overdue by 3 mths for new phone), plus while my work phone was having major issues with battery life (OS6 9800) I did a factory reset, reloaded all the apps and have now tripled the battery life so cannot justify changing the phone. What's my point in this statement? My BB 9800's do all I require so why spend $100's on something new?

    i just now read this post, so sorry for the delay in response KTW

    It honestly took me 24 hours to get the comfort with the new look and functionality of the Z10

    I convinced my boyfriend to get one (he has never used a smartphone in his life and is not very tech savy) and it took him literally 2 days to figure the whole thing out. I was very impressed by how easily he graspsed it for someone that does not even have a music player!

    Thank you for elaborating on your thoughts!

    enjoy your new device!!

    I have been reading as a guest for a while now, and decided to chime in on this one. I love the Z10, it is a pretty slick device and it didn't take me long to get the hang of gestures. I have the Playbook, so that made using the Zed more predictable and familiar. I am now 3 months in and have no regrets. The camera is pretty sweet and the storyteller app has made many a person emotional, video chat on bbm and chatting with the playbook makes it a lot of fun. Oh yeah, and also for work data bases and email.

    Well, I seem to take frequent hiatuses from the internet, just to keep my sanity. I really like the Z10 as the browser is slippery fast and I love video chatting with PB friend in Cyprus. I know you can do these things on other devices, but, I really do like the BlackBerry product and have made the transition to OS10 quite nicely. Thanks for your comments.

    There is a lot I like about BB's and the Playbook and it's always annoying to hear people saying they don't have the Apps. Having said this it is very frustrating to see that certain Apps are not available or do not have the functionality of other platforms

    The only thing that is holding me back is that I am limited to 10 email addresses and I actually have 12. Well, the other aspect that is holding me back is that the phone costs with t-mo $49.00 down plus $480 in payments which brings it to $529.00! Maybe I'll get over the price ...

    You sure it's limited to 10 email accounts? I know it used to be that way when BIS was a requirement, but not sure it's got that limitation anymore since they've done away with BIS.

    according ot the BB rep that the t-mo rep was talking to, yes the limitation is still 10 emails accounts. Maybe someone else can chime in ...

    well at least there's more choice with the q7 and q5. perhaps consider one of those as there much cheaper I think.

    but would someone please tell me how to go back and home on the thing.

    Rog, BB10 is limited to 10 E mail addresses. Now, don't ask me why.
    To get Home just press the back key till you get there. Ummmph! And yeah, if you got one, why uh?

    I play around with one at the local carrier/service provider.

    currently the z10 is far too expensive for me to consider (it costs as much as an iPhone 5 in RSA)

    How can the Z10 be too expensive. Best Buys has them free with 2 year contract and I saw them somewhere for $400 outright but I don't remember where.

    Back to the post I wonder why we still have the 10 email account limit? Had more then that on the 9900 but had to have two accounts forwarded to my other accounts.
