great update

My wife's Classic has been running this for a while (and even has the Play Store, Google Maps, etc) and it's a great improvement over what the Q10's been running.

Awesome update

Great update. UI changes are great so far. Direct download of Amazon's App Store fills in a number of holes. Sideloaded Snap for quite a bit more. Still no YouTube or Google Maps functionality due to no Google Play Services, but it bridges quite a gap.

And this is just the 1st build of BB10. Waiting to see what's down the road.

Group contact

How do I create a group of contacts in the 'Contacts" function? Or is there a back door to it somewhere else?

Z10 turning itself off and then back on

It has turned itself off and then back on twice today. Been doing that lately, often when I am in a bad reception area. Anyone know what is going on?

Have one!

I like it! But like all blackberries before it, its going to take some time to master!
When you turn this thing on it at least teaches you a couple of basic gestures to use before you get too far with it so you aren't going WTH?

Everything feels different. The only obvious similarity between OS 10 and anything before it is when you get into the settings. A little bit of familiarity there.

Email was simple to set up. It somehow figured out that I filter company email through googles servers with just address and passwords only. Thought I was going to have fun setting that up correctly.

Lots of apps to look through. almost too many for me at the moment. Last I heard there were 100,000 plus. Maybe the app counters among us will wait u...

Here we go :)

Fun thing to see is what BB will do when it comes to lacking in applications to customers. I love these pre-orders. I have stock in BBRY so I am loving each moment it goes up Smile

No more making fun of them for charging $1000 for a phone. Not that $689 is cheap either.

So, as this phone is being launched in different world markets its at least not being laughed at Laughing
Yes, people from the UK and Canada always did love their blackberries, but articles like this are encouraging

BB Swan Song

I think that I've seen this before. ..

Oh yes, this is Palm's WebOS with the Pre and Pixie all over again. Of course you will have the BB diehards that will rush out and snap up the 1st wave giving the project a false sense of success and yes I am speaking to the American market only as Im fully aware of BB's market presence OUTSIDE of the US market.

History is repeating itself. This OS and hardware needed to come out TWO years ago when the Playbook was under a hard push.

RIM/BB did it to themselves by failing to act quicker. Too little too late just like Palm in 2009.

Rich

Do you guys "break in" your batteries before review?

Batteries always seem to increase in performance after a few cylces, which seems to be the case in one of the threads here below... also my GS1, Inspire, and GS2 did this, but my GS3 didn't seem to...

...or is it just that newer batteries do not require this anymore?? (I don't think battery tech has changed recently)

Buddy just got one

Just went over to speak to my buddy about this after reading the review on this site.

He said he was having similar battery problems, however, he stated that the battery life has been increasing substantially every day. First day he got 6 horus out of it, second it lasted for 10, and he said that the last few days, it has gotten him all the way through the day.

Device also looks and feels great. The top and bottom edges are slightly tapered so it slides into your pocket. The otterbox design is horrible - it leaves bezzle (sp?) exposed at the bottom of the screen.

The hub is great, however, and the way the device multi-tasks is excellent. When you are typing a message, the "predicted words" appear very small hovering above certain ...

I Just Can't Get Excited About This One.

The US smartphone market is vicious and as much as we whine and cry for an alternative to the two major OS' s currently leading the market they are leading the market because that's what people are buying and that is what app developers are writing for so they will get paid.

Android is highly versatile and there is enough variety in hardware and manufactures that a buyer doesn't feel pigron holed. If you do choose to go this way your variety of hardware is reduced to 2 choices. Yes, I am aware that Apple only has one choice other than color, memory and generation but to be fair, Apple is different, PLUS they offer an entire eco system that the iSheep cuddle up with at night like a child's security blanket that BB doesnt offer.

over in the "BlackBerry to Cease Sales In Japan" discussion:

What a lose :(

I personally prefer Android devices, but without competition a OS become stagnant.

With Microsoft Window's 8, BlackBerry's BB 10, and Canonical Ubuntu phone are trying to innovate (in UI, price, design, security, apps etc) in someway to make them stand out in the crowd and grab the 3rd spot crown (hopefully they are shooting for the top but we have to be realistic here).

If we only have iOS/Mac OS X and Android/Chromium they OS will become scary similar and the differences will slowly erode away.

With the BlackBerry stopping sales in Japan, it is lessening competition for the Japanese people, which is never a good thing. Hopefully this move is only temporary until they build there shares up a bit more.

Hopefully the smartph...

So its a 3G phone? Not LTE?

from the article....

"The Z10 unit we have on hand is not optimized for use on any of the U.S. networks, but it is compatible with AT&T's 3G network and T-Mobile's 2G network. "
