Who needs it to cook bacon? BB10 will be the sexiest thing you ever saw that will be able to cook anything you want...even android apps Laughing

If RIM can make it back from the brink of death then its the comeback of the century or they could just be holding off the inevitable with all this BB10 talk every so often.
