RIM Doesn't Want to Talk to Analysts Until After BB10 Launch
In Other Words..
Hopefully, they can release a product good enough to stabilize their place in the mobile world. I've had a blackberry and enjoyed it for the most part. The hardware lacked what it needed to compete and the OS was a bit inefficient. Any OS that drains a good portion of battery power to boot up and takes more than 30sec to do so, is not efficient by any means.

All of the Android & Apple devices you can just turn on the hotspot and wirelessly connect to the internet on a laptop. Blackberry also needs a market like Android & Apple so we can download apps wirelessly. What
