The discovery (not really surprising but still discouraging) that none of my current Blackberry apps are going to work in Blackberry 10 and that I am (probably) going to have to repurchase them all over again (assuming any of them are ever actually converted to Blackberry 10 in the first place) is frankly enough to make me think that it is time to jump off the good ship Blackberry and find another platform.....the primary benefit of sticking with Blackberry is that my apps can carry over and I don't have to buy them that ship has sailed...most of them will probably never be available at all on Blackberry 10, and the ones that are might not be available for a couple more years...and even then I'll probably be forced to buy them again....if I am going to have to buy all my apps all over again no matter what, why not jump to a platform where I won't have to wait until 2015 or 2016 for those apps to even exist in the first place?

What a great way to alienate your customers.....I'm not surprised, I've been expecting exactly this announcement....but is depressing as hell...
