Well for me,it seems clear that success for BB10 will be in it's ability to connect to lots of people without having them forced to be on a Blackberry device, what would be best is if it connected to Skype with a beautiful and clear picture and sound, that quality will become it's own advertizing as those who aren't on BB10 will 'see the difference', that's what I am hoping for cause that will give one aspect of this mobile computer a large audience who get to immediate input on quality.
As to Skype and Netflix, yes having them on board is a good thing, a very good thing. It just bugs me that with the fierce environment for smart phone, these two enterprizes don't seem to have any competition? If there were competition for these two companies there would be more options for the mobile devices and consumers. I say this especially in regards to Skype, why are they getting away without any viable competition, no else is getting that free ride! I would love to see BBM go Desktop with Video!! then build apps for it (just the video) for iOS and Android!!

Reducing marketshare isn't about declining shipments, but more about the smartphone market exploding and sucking up many former featurephone and dumbphone users.
There are Android phones more powerful than the 9900 on sale in China for $160. Those contribute significantly to the total Android tally....as well as sales of mid-range Android devices....before one starts debating the flagship phones.
Apart from Marketshare, Apple is still raking in well over 60% of the total profits in the smartphone game.

There's possibly an aspect that gets overlooked by a few people when it comes to apps on platforms: carrier agreements. Verizon customers have had Skype. Let's hope none of that goes around with BB10.

While i agree that iPhone has a large following, and so does an Android, i know more people with a BlackBerry device than any other, and I live in North America. Those that don't have an iphone: one has an android, and the others all have feature phones.Device(s):
Curve 9300> Bold 9700> Z10>Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Tablet: BlackBerry Playbook 32GB

Sprint has a big contracts with Apple; it's a long way to go to make their money from selling an Iphone. Now talking is cheap regarding BB10 until it is coming out and we will see who is better. I strongly believed BB10 will be a hit when consumer understand their UI.

Well my BBM list keeps getting smaller.
*ONE* person....my man....that I know in real life. ALL my family and loved ones have gone. I used to say the whole family was a BB family, but everyone is gone.
I only have about ten from the forum, after I dropped one member from BBM and Twitter and my contacts this morning.
My WhatsApp is increasing. My iMessage is increasing.
I will Skype and Face Time with them.
******edited to catch typo that my loving, loving friend THE PANTLESS ONE brought to my attention!!!!
