    Default P'9981 Users Migrating to BB10?

    I was just wondering if any P'9981 users have decided to migrate to a BB10 deivce? Namely the Z10 or the Q10. Or are you sticking by your exclusive BlackBerry's running OS 7.1? Or are you running the P'9981 and a BB10 device together? Would be great to hear from you.

    I am eagerly waiting for my Q10 to be delivered from Gold BlackBerry Q10 | 24 CRT Gold
    I will post my review or comparison as you wish when this device is delivered.

    That's a tad pricey, and God forbid that one would drop it...

    Cool! I would love a review on it. As Navi said though, be very careful you don't drop it! Are you going to be using this gold plated Q10 alongside your P'9981 then? If it was me, I'd be using the P'9981 as a daily driver, and the gold Q10 as a weekend phone.

    I don't blame you mate. What with all that stainless steel ;-)

    I've just recently bought the Q10, and that feels like a solidly built device as well, although not really comparable to the P9981.

    I would consider migrating to the Q10 had my carrier allowed me to maintain my current plan but since they won't and require me to sign a new $$$ plan I'm not changing what works for me.

    For all the hate the P'9981 gets, it's still proven itself to be a rock solid communicator. I'll ride mine until it goes kaput.

    I would love to do a side-by-side comparison of the keyboard on the Q10 and the P9981, to see what the differences are with typing on the two devices.

    yes actually but if I have to go with vertu I will have to get one from the constellation line probably the vertu ferrari constellation, it's just pretty expensive but I'd be happy to rock that phone.

    I'm using my PD with my Q10 both are sweet. The P'9981 is my personal phone & the Q10 is for business

    Just bought myself a Z30. I like it but will also use my P9981 as I am very fond of it.

    However the P'9981's OS must seem ancient compared to using the Z30.

    I still use my P'9981 I like the OS & I have a Q10. I use the Porsche more. The apps on there - BOA, Amazon, Ubersocial etc,. are better than the Android ports or non existent apps on BB10.

    I agree that the OS is much more advanced, however, the P9981 does all of the basics that we require on a daily basis. While the extra capabilities on the Z30 is appreciated, there is a luxurious feel to the P9981 when you hold it, and it does what you need i.e texting, phone calls, making notes. The screen is too small for web browsing but I rarely do that on my phones.
