Nice UI but only time will tell about its success in the presence of champions. Hardware and build quality seems to be attractive but software will have to do something very special to convert fanatic followers of IOS, Android and WP8. Did you hear any word about playbook updating to BB10 OS?

I don't understand why people are after hardware. Did you see how smooth it was running? For the upteenth time this is not ANDROID that it needs 16 cores and 8gb ram. The software looks impressive and phone is good looking as well. it might not be the market breaker but surely will put things in the right direction for the BB which definitely lost its path. A job well done in my opinion and no I'm not a BB lover, never owned/liked it but got to admire what is good. this LOOKS good. Good Luck BB

Really. This is totally overpriced looking at the hardware it will provide.
On 3 year contract 149.99$?
Oh my god. I'd rather buy Lumia 920. So outdated.

OS looks promising though.

I think the hardware is sufficient. But, for that hardware, it was better a lower price. Blackberry continues with the same problem: high prices for medium hardware.

hippoZ, 30 Jan 2013The BB10 UI looks unimpressive! It looks worse than Windows 8... moreWindows 8 or Windows Phone 8 ??? Dont make silly mistake again & again. Windows 8 & Windows Phone 8 are completely different thing.

Cheap looking with plastic build. Nahhh

The BB10 UI looks unimpressive!

It looks worse than Windows 8 UI.

I guess it is hard for new users to accept BB10 OS unless you are BB die hard fans.

The Flow man the FLow, and that HUB and that screenshare on BBM...Awesome

The hardware is not what they are advertising but the software and anyone can see that they gave it their all. I mean they already have all those apps, apps that should have been in WP8 but are not. Tell me again that they don't deserve to succeed. Again the hardware is not the highlight but the software.

It looks like a 4.2 inch enlarged LG Cookie phone. The design is very dated. I'm smelling a flop.

Both tlook thoroughly average with little new and a huge price to boot. In reality they offer nothing useful over existing BB OS

Personally I really like both of these handsets, especially the Q10. Seeing screen sizes drop again makes sense now that tablets are so popular and cheap. A high quality OS like this which focuses on getting things like typing, basic web-browsing and multi-tasking right seems like a good move.

This is why I bought my RAZR i over the likes of a GSIII. I wanted something smaller, high quality and to the point. I leave games and heavy web browsing to my PC and tablet.
