    BlackBerry can take a page out of Apple's "How to Market a Smartphone Successfully" book.

    Q10 always gets featured over the Z these days.

    It's because the Q had the QWERTY that BlackBerry is known for.

    I doubt Apple is paying the media, Apple gets a lot of free coverage in the media, it would be a waste of money to pay them

    I must agree that was the worst "story" i've ever read on Winnipeg Free Press. Apple does however do a huge amount of marketing, like when you go onto futureshop to look for a computer, its always laptops AND macbooks, same with the display as Apple always has their products by themselves. Never mixed with others.

    It has a Q10, what more do you want? And what's wrong with having iOS 7 - why wouldn't you include the feature-rich successor of one of the most popular phones in the world?

    Maybe everyone in the media now has an iPhone. I'm sure if the pages were turned these articles would all be about BlackBerry like they used to be. But that's what u get for not staying on top of tech, and until 10.4 comes along I don't see where BlackBerry stands out.

    Today an article in the newspaper here about apple hiring more Chinese workers in China for their factory. Because of there goal the sell more and for the upcoming iPhone 5s etc. Then the article says that Chinese worker are underpaid and making to much hours. And who is going tho bash apple now???? Nobody! Strange?? It sounds like slave labor and nobody cares. Earlier an article about tax fraud . Anyone cares? Law suite?? No!
    Article stating that for 10 different points the Z10 is a better phone than iPhone 5 . And reviews of iPhone user complaining about battery life, broken lock button etc.
    But any negative news for Apple? No!
    And BlackBerry???? Great phone and all about negative
    Why......

    Everyone uses "slave " labour. That's not even worth arguing about.

    My buddy is running IOS7 beta 6...and he hates it...this will be his last iPhone for sure. The Ui is incoherent and inconsistent. This OS update for our apple brothers is a disaster to be frank.

    To each his or her own. I like it. It is not a huge update and I find it no more incoherent than iOS 6. However, it has a learning curve, much like BB10. People can be lazy and hate something because it is new and they have to learn. Not saying that is your friend, but it is one of my coworkers who tried it. Now he loves it. Some will not like it and may move to Android or WP8. I also like both of those a lot.
