And if the 2k13 BB10 can deliver as much as the 7 year old X5 then it's a great thing.
Why people are taking it so personal ?Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

The point is, RIM has little to gain by investing heavily into audio quality for their phones, which are already adequate for most peoples' needs. They may win the favour of a few audiophiles, but I think most of them don't even expect a smartphone to replace a Rio Karma.Blatant placeholder signature.

and no i'm not an executive at RIM, you're expecting to much from a smartphone but that said each device poses a different advantage to each user, RIM is building BB10 as a mobile computing device nto a multimedia device, with it have multimedia characteristics sure will but is what what its general purpous is, no its not.
weach person expects different thigns and should choose their device based on what they need from it, so liek i said earlier if you are lookign for soemthing that you can play music with to suit your audioholic needs then buy a samsung or an iPhone because you've clearly already made up your mind

Not trying to be cheap here but for me BB 10 should have apps that can run over wifi without BIS, just like any other competitor phones in the market. Maybe some critical apps like email or bbm which require high security can be made to run only on BIS. I love BBs and I have been using BB and playbook for some years now.. I am constantly on the move and many times I am in very rural places and without cell network. If apps like facebook or whats app or twitter or browser or any of these sort of apps would require BIS.. Im out. BTW is there any news about it? I hope its like playbook that can run everything on both wifi and cell network.
apart from that basic requirement for my choice, the only thing i want is no lagging! no freakin lagging at all.Dont rub the lamp if you dont want the genie to come out.

I'm a kind of audiophile too. I'm not the big expert who knows everything, but i hear the difference between flac and 320kb/s, I like good hardware to listen to my music (headphones are one of my hobbies), I had player like cowon or iAudio etc... It's one of my favorite free time activity
All this explication, just to say that i understand what you want, but i could tell you that BB will never do what you want. I was asking for the same kind of devices, for many years (128gb to put flac, gapless player, physics button to switch the music, and a very "neutral" sound to let my music "clear" and not put all that bassy **** like beats do in the phones or computer they supports. This is what i was asking for). But this is only a "dream" for us, the combination of our phone and our player couldn't be real. RIM manufactur phones, and if of course they put all the features like SDXC slot or gapless player, the quality will not be like our old player.
Why do we stay on our ol iAudio for you, and my old cowon D2 ? Because nothing is really better on the audio player market. If manufacturer specialized in audio player can't beat iAudio or cowon, how RIM could do this ?French Blacberry addict. Q10.

If you're saying you won't buy the phone if it weighs 127 grams, you're a tad ridiculous.
Your HTC Legend has a 3.2 inch screen with half the pixel density of the new BB10 display, less than half a gig of RAM, and a 600 GHz processor. And if you're such an audiophile that you demand the above from BB10, I can only imagine how much you hate your current phone.
Drawing any comparisons between the 2 phones is borderline senile.Remember to RTFM.

I'd only buy the London if it has a magnetic charging pad where it is suspended in midair while charging wirelessly.Blackberry 10 > Windows Phone 7/8 > Blackberry 7 > WebOS > iOS > Android > Symbian > Meego

Personally I hate the weight of it, I've felt heavier plastic dummy phones in carrier stores.
Anyways, whether or not you buy a BB10 phone does not make a difference to me. But unless you put your phone on an extra sensitive scale every night before you can sleep....saying you're not going to buy it unless its lighter than 126 grams seems pretty dumb.Remember to RTFM.
