Apple vs. Samsung Trial Forces Companies to Open Up the Books - Ina Fried - Mobile - AllThingsD
I didn't say that Samsung didn't make a fortune --- I said that they lumped everything together. All you hear is they made x billion dollars on android phones --- when it is actually that they made x billion dollars making CPU's, LCD screens..., which nobody else can do. RIM doesn't make CPU's, doesn't make LCD screens --- if RIM makes android phones, it would face the same fate as HTC, making zero dollars on android phones.

The only danger with being 1.0 is the missed nuances. I have no doubt RIM can do a slick, big idea new UI, but it's the little things that bring big ideas down.
Windows Phone 7 is a fine example. Runs great, looks great, but lacked the little details that iOS and Android had at that point. Much of this was addressed in Windows Phone 8, but it was a whole year later.
Still, I'm excited and very open minded to what RIM has to say and offer.

It's whatEVER RIM calls it! But it's the 3rd major generation of the QNX based OS they first developed for the Playbook, and are now using for the phones. Did apple re version iOS for the iPad or iPod Touch, or do you use the same OS, modified for your device, and it's hardware? Like other's have said RIM needs to get the Q&A right, and make sure the gold OS ships fairly bug free. (NO it won't be bug free, they never are!) But it's not 1.0, it's definately 3rd gen!
