I'm biased.

I like what I see a lot. I'm at a point where I'm more than happy to dump my Android device for BB10. Stuff like BlackBerry Flow makes sense - rather than seeing a bunch of apps, it's much more data centric. Put that together with a unified inbox/notification system (BlackBerry Hub), and I really like the fact that the system works together based on what I'm doing and what kind of data I'm working with, instead of leaving me to deal with trying to move stuff from one app to another. That and the fact that I can "peek" at what's happening in the hub without exiting the app in the foreground.

There's a bunch of stuff come out of the BlackBerry Jam sessions that show this stuff, up on youtube

Stuff like the Time Shift on the camera is neat, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker for me.

"And there shall be wars and rumors of wars."

In war we come to really appreciate "The power of sucking less".

Very well researched and written article I thought.

So Aedan, as you didn't mention it, are we to assume that it's security is "sucking less" as well?

I've very heavily biased on that one, given I'm squashing security issues as we type.

I'd love to, but I suspect my employer wouldn't be too happy about me disclosing stuff. Let's just say that at this point in time, I'd be happy to buy a BB10 device - as I stated earlier.
