    but as we write this review, the BlackBerry World store is overflowing with junk apps, many of which are being sold at premium prices.

    Are there junk apps on other platforms? Undoubtedly, but here they not only seem to vastly outnumber the good apps, they're actually floating up to the top of the recommended and most popular apps lists. Quantity is beating quality over the head, and we're left doubting the quality of the curating process itself. That major entertainment apps like Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and Spotify will be missing at launch is disappointing.
    Oh I love this piece :). My worries are gone in a flash! Nice review btw

    And now the celebrity endorsement. All these presentations are getting to be the same.

    1% marketshare worldwide. That's what Windows Phone has after 2.5 years.

    1% globally? Where did you get that figure from?? Last I saw it was 2.6% globally.

    Yeah, it kinda is. But it's what has always been here - if you want a new smartphone for cheap, that's what you sign up for.

    Imagine that! An Engadget review of a non-iOS product that was less than stellar. Color me shocked.

    My opinion is firstly, congrats "Blackberry". Welcome to 2012.

    However, secondly, it just looks like a bastardisation between Android and IOS. Im not sure why anyone would move from either of those platforms to BB10, and certainly not from WP8 to BB10. At least WP8 is trying to do something different. BB10 is just trying to do whats already been done in their own way to be different for difference sake.

    Wish them luck though. The more competition and ideas the better, as long as they don't sue everyone :)

    Yeah, I take back what I said about how easy it is to port your Android App over to BB10. Sounds like it kinda sucks (They are using Gingerbread, which is 2.3, runtime.) That's not good.

    Plus I'm wondering what that would do for battery life

    Good point as well. It does probably put to bed things like Netflix and Instagram coming right away. No way they would simply port their app over using an Android 2.3 runtime.

    I'm also leary about the Blackberry Hub... as we know with Windows Phone, if you're just using the 3rd party APIs to get Facebook updates you get all those stupid game requests and crap that you have filtered out of the website or native apps on Android or iOS. I can totally see my Blackberry Hub filled with crap stuff that I would probably remove that junk out of there.

    The Verge review is pretty good and they do give the Z10 a 7.0. Not bad. Sounds like battery life is an issue, which current Blackberry users will not like... at all.

    But Tk, let's be honest, for a company that has a lot at stake with this phone coming out, do you think a 7 will do? 'just' a seven?

    All major Canadian carriers do 3 years. 2 years are offered but at a measly 150 dollars off the phone, 1 years might get 100 bucks off. The thing that pisses me off the most is Rogers can't even be courteous enough to provide a free jar of KY for the @** raping you get on your first bill.

    I have to be honest, I was a little concerned about BB10 making a big splash but after today's launch the BB10 features really didn't impress me as much as I thought they would. Aside from the older demographic I don't see the younger generation rushing out to buy BB10 devices.

    The investors weren't impressed either because the stock is dropping like a rock. I do have a soft spot for BB since that was my first smartphone. Also, more competition is better for us consumers.
