Meh, quite disappointed. Android/iPhone much?

If im honest I want blackberry to do well as the smart phone market is a bit bald at the moment with only ios android and wp8. I am a wp user but to me having more choice in the market will result in better options for customers and it will also keep them all trying to out do each other. Its the same in the tablet market having windows 8 ios android and playbook all doing well in the market again keep them all on there tows and offers customers more choice.

I have to agree with you.

There just doesn't seem to be much of a distinctive look or feature-set to it. That's primarily why I opted for the lumia 920 a few weeks ago over an android device and my original iphone.

But I am digging the fluidity of the user interface and the classy handset, but that's about it..

Maybe it's just me but it looks like the iPhone 5.


Sell It, Keep It, Trash It: What To Do With Your BlackBerry Phones

It is sad that BlackBerry is struggling to stay alive and it looks like the ailing Canadian company could officially kill the BlackBerry brand in 2017. Of course, it could still have a tiny thread of existence with its Android range of smartphones that’s if they think its financially wise and technically viable.

It looks like it is game over for BlackBerry 10.

Perhaps, if BlackBerry had pushed BB10 same year when Android came out or even a year later, things could have been a little different. They where comfortable with the old and dated OS 6, shame.


Yes now the time for blackberry ends and they are lost behind android. They might finish BB in 2016 only but to stay alive in this race they must need to do a miracle and that will not be easy for them take people through from android.

I already have two blackberry phones lying in my drawer. Don't know if I will ever use them again after using iPhone.


I do'nt use an iphone but i too had one blackberry phone in my house but now where it is thrown no one knows. I might now try to find it. I think that the time for bb has now gone.

BB needs to do something extraordinary to attract its customers again atleast in the business class category.


Yes they need to but that is not easy for them as android and apple has fixed their foot in the smartphone market.

How times change. I remember an era when people bragged about having a Blackberry. My friends tried to get one even if just a used older model. It was symbol of prestige and class. And now look at it today. Touchscreen smartphones and OS killed the past giants of the smartphone industry.

It's all about the time. Time has changed everything from man to technology.

I still remember an advertisement of blackberry that amazed people out here. My bigger brother argued my dad many time for that bb but my father did'nt agreed with him. And its right its just about time.

I always keep my old phones as back ups in case something happens to my main phone.

Like Nokia, they couldn't see beyond their Nose. I really loved the Z30 and it's a shame BlackBerry is now a shadow of itself. :(


BlackBerry Z10, Top Rival launched by BlackBerry for iPhone

Get a simple BlackBerry in your hand, remove the QWERTY keyboard actually throw all the buttons away, make it a little bigger, make it a little stronger, make it slightly slimmer, choose a larger screen and better resolution and in the end you get a Z10.
