Blackberry 10 being bashed left and right
Despite the old OS 7 shortcomings, I love my blackberry experience and is very excited to switch to Blackberry 10 for even higher leap in blackberry experience.
So this guy, being a summa cumlaude (twice) PhD graduate from RWTH Aachen in mobile communication keep on bashing the technical side that are quite alien to me, Hahahaha. What can I say, I am just a regular BB loving guy.
Here's some that I quoted:
Blackberry doesn't offer any innovation. The design is so iPhone wannabe, the OS is Linux-based. The BBM is a joke compared with Path or Line. They use mass market SoC, the Snapdragon, unlike Apple who has invented A6X and Samsung Exynos. Both SoC are house made. That is what we, technologist, call INNOVATION, PIONEER. Shame on Blackberry. What do they invent? Oh yeah qwerty keyboard.
Google is the first company that introduced gesture technology through Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich last year. BB is a copy cat in all aspects. The companies or technologies they use in marketing is either snow from yesterday or some candies made by IT companies in rural Bangalore whose the majority of the employees are part time students in some IT universities. Blackberry Balance feature was introduced by Nokia through their N SERIES. The series was introduced when I was working on my PhD thesis and it was 12 years ago. They just invent new wrappings for some old **** made by other companies back then. Sorry, QNX is Linux based. Let me simply your 'teaching' about QNX. Unix and Posix 5 clones like Linux is modular OS with two distinct separation of operation space, the kernel and user space. This technique enables complete separation of user and system access. Thus user activities including virus cannot attact kernel space which is responsible of system operation. QNX is the loser posix 5 variant which competed against Linux to get into PC platform back then 20 years ago. A loser hardware company and a loser OS make a good combination.
UPDATE, as posted on thread #93 (on page 4):
Guys, thanks a lot for all the ammunition. Good knowledge, too!!!
I also agree that it's not wise to continuing the debate with my friend. Haters definitely gonna hate. No matter how much facts we offered, they always seems blind to them and only cherry-pick those which serve their original opinion.
But to let him rants freely on my fb comments section without showing him some of his misconceptions seems a bit damaging to BB Z10. And I do want my other contacts at least to respect this amazing phones and perhaps buy it.
At last, after telling him QNX is unix-like not Linux-based. That Android consists of a kernel based on Linux kernel version 2.6 and, from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich onwards, version 3.x; he finally let it rest. This is his last comment:
You are funny. Since when Unix can run on non-unix processor like Qualcomm's. Let's stop this Bro , dont teach me subject where I got my summa *** laude (computer science). I dont want to go back to Operating System 101. I even developed a new OS called RT Linux which is now used in all Nokia Siemens Flexi BTS which can run GSM, 3G and LTE at the same time. My PhD thesis is about embedded system. Go figure what it means
Thank you, Crackberry peeps!

It is funny, because I think I read the two words "Apple" and "Invent" in the same sentence.
Apple has never invented anything, Apple steals from other companies.
If he thinks Google invented gesture based devices he is very wrong, first was WebOS, then Meego, then PlayBook OS.
Linux is an OS that WISHES to be QNX.
Ask your friend this, if he is a techy, he should know the answer.
What is one thing that Apple invented AFTER Wozniak left the company?
The answer is slim to none.
Or just show him this video.

Yeah Steve Jobs i miss the guy cause he did what many people would do in business and have done, so he made sure his business survives, but now Blackberry has come back with a vengence and will kick some *** back into apple.

Not to be disrespectful but soon as I read the title "High school Friend" I didn't even both reading the long thread. When I was in high school I was too busy chasing girls and playing sports.

Well to put it in Apple style of invented. BlackBerry invented smartphone.
QNX is obviously not Linux its Unix-like system. The clue is in the name ffs, quick unix...
He is obviously an Apple fan boy on a mission, but at one point one should always stop and think about what he is saying. Most of what he mentioned is Apple propaganda wrapped into, "oh I went to uni once". And that apparently gives the right to say "We Professionals".
His monologue is laughable.
But it's a good sign, if apple fan boys feel this disturbed by bb10, that they start making stuff up. They must be scared.

This 'friend' has a lot to learn.
An apple is an apple
An android is an android
A BLACKBERRY is a BLACKBERRY (CAPS intended)
As I see it, serious users prefer the BB because of it's security, BBM, hard keyboard (if wanted): about 80 million +/- users worldwide.
BB users tend to keep their phones until they wear out after many years, not changing them because of 'next generation' fad.
In the past half year, RIMM (now Blackberry) shares are up 100%.
In the past year, Apple shares are down 50%.

Your so called friend is a complete and utter ********* OP, if that was my friend saying that rubbish, id stop being friends with him.
Apple aint invented shizzle, they copy what is alreadyy out there and then make it out that they invented it. Hopefully now with Jobs long gone, perhaps Apple will sort themselves out.
I'll say this iOS is staler than 2 mth old cheese at the moment and if Apple dont buck up their ideas and innovate, as they like to claim that they are...then in no time they will find themselves exactly where BB were a yr or so ago.
Android is far more innovative than iOS and has been for a few yrs now, just people havent really picked up on that and instead of dropping their dumbphone, which is what an iphone essentially is and getting a proper smartphone ie Android and BB10 now is. They wouldnt know the difference to be honest. Dont be surprised if the next generation of iphones and Androids no longer have the home button, BB has definitely changed things in that respect.
