Some things you need to know about the upcoming Blackberry 10

Iíve had a BlackBerry 10 device on my hip for eight weeks. I have never had to reset it, and it has never frozen. The key is in the multi-kernel: if you hit a process and it does not execute properly, the icon goes grey, but the device carries on working. Just that one process gets restarted. It has a wonderful recovery process; it blocks this one process and the others continue to flow. It goes deep into the technology of the microkernel multi-threading process, and that allows us to have an immensely reliable system.

BlackBerry Hub - BlackBerry Hub is the inbox/messages app for BlackBerry 10. There is no Messages app now - just the BlackBerry Hub which is always there and always one gesture away.
Quick Settings / Menus - Swiping down from the top of the phone of the screen reveals a quick settings menu.
One-Handed UI touches - All of BlackBerry 10 has been designed with one-handed use in mind.
Lock Screen - The lock screen not only shows your notifcations, but as you drag you finger to unlock the device, you can literally "reveal" the OS underneath. Very cool.
Active Frames - Minimzed apps turn into widget-like Active Frames. These frames will show useful app info (like current temparture for weather app).
Keyboard - The BB10 keyboard has an aweseome predicitve text feature that actually shows predicted words over the next letter you would have to type, really speeding up one-handed typing. Check out the demo video below.

With all due respect, BlackBerry 10 should annihilate Apple, Google and Windows Operating Systems. QNX rocks hard and probably one of the most powerful OSís in existence. It holds unique patents that make this OS the best. QNX is used in automotive electromechanical components, for industrial control systems, medical instruments, defense systems, nuclear power plants, and other mission-critical applications including NASA. And yes the BlackBerry PlayBook too

No other smartphone offers what BB10 offers and some...

BlackBerry 10 Features that will make you want one:
- Fresh Interface that Emphasizes Gestures & Multitasking
- Revamped Touch Keyboard
- Super Charged Browser (Equal or Faster than Desktop Browsing)
- New Interface allows to look up information seamlessly
- Flow UI is a Multitasking Monster with its Peek Feature.
- And many more,
Flow UI Ė Peek:
With Peek, users can swipe in from the left side of the screen to reveal the BlackBerry Hub from which they can view and response to their recent messages. You can then reverse the gesture to return to your previous app.
New Interface:
For example, when you click on an upcoming appointment you can see who is attending and how many Twitter followers they have or check their LinkedIn profile--without having to use separate apps.

Sexiest Smartphone around IMO.

Bad BB experience? It's quite the opposite, never will I buy Apple's malware infested iPhone. Android is worst for malware, but runs more efficient than iOS.

It's all BB10 for me.

You're going to need better facts than that. If that were the case people would be flocking. In looking at your points:
- Fresh Interface that Emphasizes Gestures & Multitasking
--Pick your launcher on Android and have at it...

- Revamped Touch Keyboard
--Pick your keyboard on Android and have at it...

- Super Charged Browser (Equal or Faster than Desktop Browsing)
--Pick your browser on Android and have at it...

- New Interface allows to look up information seamlessly
--Google Now or built internal search on Android

- Flow UI is a Multitasking Monster with its Peek Feature.
--Debatable but still equal on Android

BB rep detected. Everyone knows iOS is the most efficient due to simplicity.

Looks nice but, to be honest, it doesn't offer anything that other smartphones don't already provide. I certainly don't feel any urge to rush out and buy one. Multi-tasking might be useful on a tablet with a larger screen but I'd argue that it is less useful on a phone. I have multi-window on my S3, thanks to Android v4.1.2, but I've never felt any need to use it. It's a gimmick IMO. The closest I've got to multi-tasking is having multiple tabs in a browser!!!

It does look really nice but ill stay with small green robot. Doesnt have any features that would make me switch from Android. There are too many phone out there now

I dont see the reason to change from Galaxy S2.

The smartphone market has now become boring because every phone offers the same things and they're all generally good anyway (is there even such a thing as a bad smartphone?). There's very little to choose between them except for the operating system they use (and thus the number and quality of the apps), screen size (which affects how small/big the phone is) and their design. In terms of features they're all pretty much identical.

I have no beef with Android, I use it and love it, though BB10 brings new innovative features, several that you will not find on any other Mobile OS.

Seeing how BB10 in beta kicked Apple's latest iOS in the teeth with ease, I can just imagine how the finished product will impress.

Really U kidding lol, iOS is a joke. Android is a lot more efficient, despite it being a malware trap.

BB10 introduces fresh new innovation for the 1st time in a long time. In order for BlackBerry to make it in this market, they have no choice. Just look at BlackBerry Hub, try finding something similar on iOS and/or Android. You won't.

Malware infested iOS and Android? lol, sounds like FUD there.

As for BB10, I've never been a Blackberry fan, but BB10 is definitely getting my attention. I won't get a device but am very interested in playing with it.

^^ That! Ive never had any issues with Android apps.

Not quite sure what this BB Hub will bring in. You kind of get the same with widgets on Android. Put few of them on homescreen and you can reply to emails straight away, update facebook/twitter,messages etc.

I might be wrong and it will be something new and cool, but doesnt seem like it.

for the first time in my life bb is getting some of my attention, but still not enough to make me read all they nonesense and even less for buying one, ill wait for all the bb fanboys in my country to get one so i can play with them and give my veredict, wow if there were no windows phone i would be looking at androids tbh, what the hell bb offers that the rest doesnt? At least wp is trying to be perfect semi-closed OS as iOS yet at the same time allowing the same freedom as android/symbian

good luck to rim, they will need tons of lucky days

Android is no where near as efficient as iOS.

Compared the hardware specs....lol That proves efficiency. My wife's iPhone4 has slower hardware than my Galaxy Stellar, but provides a much smoother experience than my Stellar ever could.

Yep, you obviously dont know as much as you think you do, and all though androids can get malware, most people are smart enough to not get them. Just as sykozis said, check the hardware differences. So either BB rep trying to sell a product or super fanboy, take a pick lol.

Interesting. Indeed look is important for me but the quality product and the price must be abit high for me.
The thing is 9900 was as expensiv as iphone4s here. And it was easy to use and respond to my needs.
I mostly use phone for efficient office tasking, dvr remote camera management, remote pc control, and social networking alittle bit. And BB 9900 was good.

Iphone 5 now, wins the game. Im happy with it. But when thesenBBs are out. I will examine them. If they r asmgood as 9900, im in the game.
