So the phone does not meet YOUR "design choices", pity.
I read this whole thread,good god what punishment I hand myself at times,lol.
Anyway, of your 35 issues I see at most 5 that are worthy of an update perhaps, the rest seem personal choice, user error or rash conclusions without digging deeper.
I'm all for these type of threads to flush out issues worthy of updates etc but your forum name and frankly attitude leave a lot to be desired in my opinion. Most approach updates/fixes in a calm rational manner, without undertones that deride from the concept of updates.
Seems your approach is more about SCREAMING like a wounded animal , with the pretence asserted on your part that this is a needed approach to get updates quicker, newsflash. .... when my child screams for a want/item in public I don't follow through.
Myself I will look to other threads for update idea's, fixes etc , sort of the approach Kevin took in calm rational manner.

hugely disappointing post - suppression of honest dialogue is NOT good
I am really impressed by the OP's post, the input from other CB members, and the OP's subsequent edits of the original post. I have found this post very informative (fyi, I'm waiting until I can compare the Z10 & X10 before I purchase - I'm also waiting to see if the functionality released suits my needs - this post has certainly helped to inform me about the current functionality of the Z10)
However, I find that your post is the opposite of impressive, as your post seems to be aimed at suppressing the dissemination of honest information about the Z10.

Opps sorry someone beat me to my question...

To the OP, I get there is issues with a new platform and sure BB has taken a few steps back in certain respects and sure they need to be corrected. But this is the released version and the real issue here is what BB does with the feedback esp. before the US launch. Your approach here is to "through the baby out with the bath water" if you get my saying.. I think all is fixable by software and certainly do-able in an upcoming release. If things are broken, I'm confident that BB will fix them. This phone launch is way more important to the company than the playbook and BB needs to focus on the glaring OS issues. I guess from my perspective it's how we as consumers use this to help "construct" BB10 not "destruct" it. I think the platform is strong and extremely flexible to correct any of these issues. I notice that your original post has all to do with issues and many of them.. but there are positives about the device .. are they not?
It would be great if someone perhaps from Crackberry or from Blackberry (heck, BB should put a paid member on this site to collect all this valuable feedback to make their OS the best of the best) that can summarize these issues and take a poll for each of them - majority rules; note that... what may be an issue for you, may not be an issue for others.. and visa versa.
This brand has a lot of potential and I personally believe more than the other brands in the market. All the issues you noted is fixable in this new OS .. it just needs to get properly funneled back to BB.
PS: I don't think the OP is a troll, he (as we all do) want the best product we can get our hands on. A phone is an expensive committment for most of us...

Maybe that is the reason why BBRY did not release in the US as they want to polish everything up before it hits the streets. Anything that is redesigned will have bugs like going from Win 3.1 to Win95 or OS 9 to OS X. Big changes = problems but they should get addressed. Look at how many iOS releases there are and Apple still cannot get autocorrect to work properly let alone true multitasking which I always enjoyed on my BB and even on my android tablet and my pb. Heck even webOS has better multitasking that iPad.

RIMBB with the new users, but it could potentially hurt them with existing customers. Either way, as Lynxs-claw puts it, all these issues should be easily fixable with updates, hopefully sooner than later. When being an "early adopter" so to speak, one must realize that there will be some growing pains along with it.

Thank you OP for a very productive post. Reality is that BB10 needs to be a nuisance free as possible when it hits the U.S. market if it is to be a commercial and critical success. It's enough of a leap of faith that people have to learn a completely new way of interacting with a phone through gestures - having to find little work arounds for everything from multiple email selection to gmail active sync to text editing/paragraph selection is just too much to ask of the market at large.
I'm sure the people at BlackBerry are still busting their humps, working overtime, processing feedback and putting together a comprehensive first patch before Z10 officially hits the States.
