[size=5][b]Sorry Apple, the BlackBerry Z10 Is Hotter Than the iPhone[/b][/size]

I've always hated BlackBerry phones. Disgracefully ugly bricks they were

Not a bad design at all. I like it better than the iPhone only because it is new and everyone is used to the iPhone. If they both came out at the same time, or around that, then I am sure it would be a diff story.

Yeah, that may be the most common reason people would like the BlackBerry Z10. It's different and naturally, people like something that's different.

They do have some overheating issues....

and one thing about apple.... they are stagnant and boring right now. don't think they are fully complying with the death bed requests from Steve Jobs. I think Steve Jobs had better things planned but Time Cook didn't want to go along with them.

They are not the same since Steve left and it shows.

I think the iPhone's a bit cleaner... but they're so similar.

It's all about the OS, though.

Don't count Apple out all of a sudden. It took Samsung a few years to respond to the changing market.

The UI for BB10 is very impressive. You can check it out here: [url="https://developer.blackberry.com/design/bb10/"]https://developer.bl...om/design/bb10/[/url]

The focus is on gestures. Everything from picking up a call or taking a peak at your notifications is done with gestures. Also, BB10 has a nifty lock screen that can be used to silence the phone and dim the screen. This is great for situations that require your phone to be off like meetings or watching a movie.

With all the improvements made to Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and WP7.5/8, Apple is facing some tough competition.

When I read the title, I thought the BB10 is running hotter than the iPhone 5 lol

I wonder how many accidental presses will happen.. seeing that the screen is so close to the edges

Update: on second thought, it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would be

Very nice.
That said, Windows Phone also looks nice and hasn't got very far. I hope BB does, though, for the sake of mankind, so to speak.

Wow, that's impressive! I must say, that design is beautiful, I'm thoroughly impressed.

I hope BB makes a comeback, it's better for the industry, it's better for everyone.

I will check it out as soon as they come to the phone store and see how it goes. If I like it, I will replace my phone with this one in the next few months.

Outwardly the phone isn't that bad looking, what I'm most interested in is the changes they have made to the OS. I absolutely despise the blackberry OS, it feels clunky and needlessly complicated. For RIM's sake BB10 and this new device need to be a welcome departure in all regards.

as long as they have some network tools on there... like wifi analyzers, throughput testing, service/application testing, etc.... I hope they will allow these.

The BB 10 icons they make available for developers are not compressed. Developers need to handle that. Just a warning.

For a 1.0 release phone and os, it sure does look impressive. The Verge's review said the os wasn't bad, took only a few minutes to figure out, and felt natural.

They said that it didn't blow away any phone, but was up there with the best. Poor battery performance thou. That could be an os issue, or a test model.

Either way, hope they do good, really good. It will make Microsoft, Google and Apple hopefully take action.

I've been reading up on the QNX OS that powers BB10 and it's an amazing piece of work. It has a bright future regardless of what happens to BB.

That most likely will be my next phone later this year. Coming from webOS it seems like the best option out there.
