BlackBerry 10 Excites Me

October 31, 2012 in Hardware

The more I watch videos on how BB10 works, or what it can do the more I honestly can’t wait to update my BlackBerry. Already I’m sure you have realized I am a HUGE BlackBerry fan… Here’s the thing though, Apple keeps doing the same old crap and everyone knows it. Android has a nice niche but they don’t have the experience I would want from an all touch screen phone. I love my keyboard! The Bold 9900 is the best typing experience I have ever had. I used to love the idea of texting, but hate actually doing it. I know I’m not alone either or I wouldn’t see text messages with terrible bad spelling and grammar. Though there will be a BB 10 device that has a full keyboard, I think without the trackpad and other top buttons, I might as well go with the full touch and just adapt! The word prediction looks easy to use and helpful, not a hinder like some devices you see. The touch keyboard on BB 10 will learn how you type and learn from where you press buttons. If you tap the letter R a little bit low and to the right it will start anticipating it. That is the kind of all touch keyboard experience I want.

Some other things I’m excited for is the power that will come from their new QNX operating system. The PlayBook has been a great experience and I worried about how some apps would work but this will truly be a radical switch to anyone that currently has a BlackBerry. No more rebooting after installing apps. Apps will be able to run services in the background. The beauty and elegance of apps will get much better and no more crappy java memory leaks! Soon you will finally see BlackBerry devices with good specs. Java just couldn’t handle it, but QNX will be able to run dual-cores, quad-cores or what ever else the future brings for mobile phones. The way the operating system handles elements is somewhat interesting too. This video really caught my attention:

Though there isn’t a real practical application to this, the fact its possible its awesome! Everything looks snappy! It’s fresh. Apple is thinking the same “different” they were 5 years ago. Android excites me, but the phones all seem sluggish and the operating system is clunky with all the bells and whistles – not a good business phone. Windows Phone 8 looks promising but with the way Windows 8 looks, I’m worried about where Microsoft is going. RIM has something to prove here and they are doing it right. Apple released the iPhone 5 even though maps weren’t ready. With RIM doing everything to make sure this phone is flawless before its released I think everyone will have a great experience. I have 100% support for this phone and will definitively be doing a Kwappy Weview on it. Alright RIM, lets see you guys knock it out of the park!
