Think what you want. Talk to your friends who's iPhone is now slow as a dog after upgrading to OS 7 or Android users that are left in the cold with no upgrades. I am not saying Blackberry will be the empire they were, I am saying they are not dead they have customers and they will be gaining more. Lots of business guys miss their blackberry, once one of their friends show them how it works and how they can use it around the world now with no special BIS service more will adopt. Wait and see.
Listen, this is what everyone likes to do. Talk bad about a company when they are down. No one seems to talk about how in 2009/10 everyone said apple sucked and blackberry was so strong. Back then I said people would trade in their BB curves for an iPhone. Here on the BB board I was told I was stupid. Look up my posts if they go back that far. NOW listen to me, the exact opposite is true, love apple bash blackberry. Mark this post, blackberry will live now is the time to buy. Many guys like me missed their blackberry, the Q10 is great. I don't need games, apps or music on my phone. Most important fact that no one mentions is the New Blackberry phones A. don't need any special service to work (you don't need "Blackberry Service") and B. Soon you will be able to run native Android apps directly on Blackberry 10 OS. Those are the facts.
