I'm believing BB10 will blow the socks off everything else, when it comes out, but we only have videos and opinions slanted as much as the Android commercials posted above. And there's the fact that none of these OSes came off Mount Sinai with the 10 Commandments. Anything made by man is going to have glitches. Some larger, some smaller. But, once it gets to the public, BB10 is likely to still have bugs and probably do things differently than the way somebody wants it done.More thoughts at Bill's Spiritual Musings. http://www.bills-musings.com

So, as I understand it on the Galaxy devices, the new LG devices you can have the 2 apps side by side able to easily move between one or the other, instead of this antiquated in and out paradigm of multitasking? Sorry I had to do it (again).

I'm on my third Android device. The only one that lagged so much I *gave* it away before it was returned to me was the Atrix, back in mid 2011, and when Rickroller and Howarmat told me to get rid of MotoBlur and I did, it was a different device.
I had minimal if any lag on the Skyrocket, certainly many many times less than the hourglassing on my 9900, which I have to reboot rather frequently, meaning at least once a week. And I have not had one single freeze or lag on my SGIII, which I've been using now as my primary device for over two weeks.
People need to get a reality check and research facts, or better yet, get their hands on these devices, before posting processed bovine feed.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup

Some people here seem to forget that RIM has always been fairly good at making things look better than they really are before they launched. I've fell for it a few times now from them. Starting with the 9530. For how horrible and craptacular the 9530 was, RIM still had enough people hyped up for it that I actually had to spend time waiting in line to purchase mine on release day.
The PlayBook is another great example. So many people here were expecting that thing to do incredibly things. It was gonna be a game changer. Saying QNX makes iOS and Android look antique. QNX powers*nuclear power plants and never needs a reboot. Remember all of that stuff? The PlayBook was a paper weight on launch day.
Even the os 7 BlackBerry pre launch videos and marketing got people over hyped. I remember seeing a Bold 99 video where the RIM employe made the phone look blistering fast and completely lag free. Then the 99 launched and that really wasn't the case until after several OS updates. The 99 is still the best BB launched to date, but it hour glassed like crazy on launch day. And now the os updates have went from helping to hurting it.
Anyone that owns one knows what I am talking about. You update a OS 7.1 BlackBerry these days and you almost always run into a feature that gets broken. I've personally had Bold 99 OS updates that broke my mobile hotspot and a few different ones that broke my ability to add or edit word substitution entries. Plus, each update seems to make mine hour glass more than the previous one did. I've never had to wipe and downgrade a BB os as many times as I have on my 99. Which scares the crap out of me, because RIM has shown that they still suck at pushing good updates to devices. And with BB10 we won't have the ability to use the tools I use today. Right now we can use hybrids and BBHtools to fix RIM's continuous mistakes with each os update, but with BB10 we will just be stuck with whatever broken or non broken update they decide to push.
Lot of people are still willing to get hyped up before a BlackBerry launch. I'm not though. I believe in setting my expectations as low as possible, so that way its less likely that I get disappointed.

Well it did say droid in the title.
All that was needed was to bypass the thread completely.

I'm not delusional, the Playbook isn't the best tablet on the market. IMO, there isn't one at all, but I will defend it against those that bought it for the wrong reasons and proclaim its worthlessness.
My company bought its first Playbook around May of 2011 and it did exactly what we wanted it to do. We liked it so much, we bought more and use them in our business daily. The small form factor, dual HD cameras, Bridge and solid hardware at time of launch made this perfect for us. OS updates, new apps added daily and functionality like Print To Go have only made it better.
We can shoot video out of the front facing camera or capture audio with the voice notes app and then multi-task to the browser or a Bridge app or any number of other apps all the while the video/audio is still captured. I can tell you no other tablet could do that on launch day back in 2011. Maybe some can do it now, I am not sure but I posed this question to some of the brightest minds on Crackberry and they said the Playbook was the only one.
Even at nearly two years old, this tablet still has features (some from launch) that no other tablet has so it is now and was then far from a "paper weight".

Many people here will defend or bash a device simply because they actually had to spend money on it. Those people are what most would call a consumer. I'm not really what you would consider to be a typical consumer. I haven't bought a RIM product since the 9650 came out. Yet I still manage to have a few of the latest BlackBerry devices laying on my desk right now. I've owned or extensively borrowed from manufactures nearly 40 different smartphones/tablets this year. So when I say something is a paperweight, its not because I bought it on an impulse and then became sad and frustrated that it don't have Netflix. It is because I looked at it objectively, compared it with it's competitors and then determined that it is in fact a paperweight.
