I am always on the lookout for what comes next. But right now, I don't see anything that would work better for me than my 9900 and Playbook combo. I do see some hopeful signs ahead that the Playbook will be increasingly useful by the time we all get to BB10 on both ends, and I really am anxious to see what the next generation Blackberry handsets will look like. But that's as close to worry as I will come.

If you are in the first group, no worries come what may. If you are in the second group, why not relax and sit tight where you are. RIM is steady to a fault. Part of what makes it tough for RIM to keep up, is that they also have to keep servicing their existing base of users, and its my sense that there are a lot of loyal customers who hang onto their handsets forever. I'm generalizing of course, but the competitors' as a group seem more volitile and apt to make multiple changes.
