    We don't know everything yet. That's part of the excitement. Stick around for the launch and see.

    Nothing really new but all much better plus the power behind the UI aka QNX.

    100 times more powerful and faster then the playbook

    Well, NO other platform has launched with that many apps.

    BB10 will not only be available with a full touchscreen.

    They're called "Active Frames", not "live tiles", it's not the same thing.

    What's so grand about BB10 is the way it is executed... but spending a few minutes going through the main CrackBerry pages would have answered that for you.

    I'm excited about having a platform which actually corresponds to my needs... finally.

    It's like whenever someone says, "Having said that..." they proceed to contradict what they just said.

    But likely if we wanted other platforms we wouldn't be here. Besides your overly simplistic analysis of the merits of BB10, we are excited about the evolution of the platform.

    OP, here's what everyone's excited about:

    It's different.



    Just like if you bought a new car or a new home, you'd be pretty excited. What for? Automobiles, 6 and 8 cylinder engines, suspension, etc. have all been around before. So why get excited over a new car?

    The difference is, it's different.

    The Z10 is 10x powerful then my 9810 and that's all I want. That is why I will be getting the Z10. If a slider version comes out, I will be getting that too. BlackBerry user for life! 14 more days!

    Thanks Buzz Killington. But it is not going to work. There is plenty to be excited about. Go look for yourself. Whatever you find, just remember that many aspects of what BB10 will offer has not been announced yet. But what is known is much better than what is out there now. It may seem the same, but it won't be. Its not an android, its more secure. Its not an iphone, its more intuitive. Its a BlackBerry and it will be the best one yet. This is what I am excited about.

    I believe the bold 9000 had 128mb RAM. The bold 9000 is a legend. This has 2GB. That's exciting.

    If Thor pulls this off and gets BlackBerry back to where it should be, I think we'll seriously have to consider having a parade for him!

    The to be released device is a BlackBerry, this is a BlackBerry fan site.

    Great idea. You bring the tequila.

    OP, it's not just about the things you've mentioned, although I could totally see why it would be for users of particular platforms. Don't take it as a dig, though (see what I did there?)
