I would DEFINITELY take this over an andriod phone...Anyday

Antiguan, 07 Feb 2013X is correct. BB10 OS will pass windows so fast its not funny. T... moreDont get me wrong , I am hoping for that to happen ... BB 10 OS reminds me of MeeGo so much . I wish that my N9 had more of useful apps ... hope that developers make more of BB 10 OS than it happened with MeeGo. Even Ubuntu for mobile has something MeeGoish in it . I hope that android and BB 10 OS become the two competing OSes , because Apple makes it hard for creative ideas to get to the end user - with those god damn patent violation lawsuits !

Just a small correction: Canonical's CEO is Jane Silber, not Mark Shuttleworth.

If Ubuntu hasn't stragically understand the trend of spec on the techie world.

they might end up of having less consumer.

I hope the line up would start from Quad Core 1.4 and +16GB Capacity.

This is the most aggressively and toughest faught market segment, aside from tablets. Entering at this late stage is going to be very dificult. How many hardware manufactures are going to create phones for yet another platform?? Good luck.

They're not handling their PR very well with
this at all: Gone is the era of 6+ months
between announcing and then shipping an
actual phone. Other technology will have likely
superseded their offering by then, and the public
will have lost interest. B-)
