Nope. I still believe in the new OS. I have more faith in BB10 now then I did in Android when it came out. Man was the G1 ugly. Sorry to those of you who liked it. RIM is going to be off to a strong start with the faithful losing any and all reason to abandon Blackberry. Just need to nab new users. Up to us to show off our BB10 phones as much as possible to the unconverted still using dumb phones.

If RIM can put out an affordable all touch and touch/keyboard BlackBerry10 curve, I think they have a very very good chance. January 30th is still not here. If the unveiled something that wows everyone and causes other platforms to play catch up then they really won't need to spend on marketing because it will market itself. I'm rooting for them and I do hope they have that ace card. They are really hurting in the U.S but Americans love an under dog.I waited...It launched...Im still waiting...

It's never too late. I've spent over 20 years in business studying the trends and peaks and valleys of many fortune 500 companies. Unless you are Chapter 7 bankrupt and have boarded up your doors, it's not too lake to do anything. Has RIM missed an market opportunity by late timing and arguably a late reaction to the market? Perhaps. But it's not too late to launch BB 10.
I seem to recall a company from Cupertino, California that was struggling with their computer sales against Windows. Their President said they were going to try and be an "appliance" company instead of a computer company. Some people scoffed at this new direction. Then this company launched iPhone and the rest is history.
RIM has a following, myself included. I'll stay with them until they board up and shut down, OR when they turn around their North American sales with BB 10.
Regardless, IMO, it's not too late.

BB is currently No 1 for me as I hate touch screen. However I am in the minority so the iPhone and Galaxy will rule. I do not believe that by bringing in a phone that resembles the iPhone, Blackberry will take the no 1 spot. It will lose the likes of me who crave a physical keyboard rather than virtual. Blackberry needs to remember it's core customers who are business users and not move to gimmicks that are touch screen with little battery life in order to compete wit hthe slimmer Galaxy. Rant over

Anybody remember the video "OH MY GOD IT'S A BLACKBERRY!!!!" ?That plus the Radioshack commericals showing over the Holidays with people shocked they received a phone for Christmas. These alone are pretty much making it blantly obvious that people Still Buy or receive Phones during the christmas season. This is probably because contracts are about to end, or someone is getting their First smartphone or first phone Ever, or the usual broken phone and have to have a new one routine. RIM starts the New Year of a new beginning for those that have not had the chance to have a phone. RIM will deliver with a great user experience because that is what they are aiming for. Every manufacturer company aims for success and RIM is not too late to be coming into the race. Let these people have and enjoy their phones from this year, for next Year will be something to Desire.

Is it too late for Blackberry 10
and I am also one of the minority business users that prefers a keyboard, but a touch screen works for me as well. I have a Droid and had an iPhone. Cool phones but not my preference for business, or even for personal communication. BBerry rules IMO.
Besides, the way things are changing and upgrading at a meteoric pace, none of the phones out today will be "preferred" in the USA in two years. They will all have to evolve.

I think we can all agree that it hurt RIM to miss the Christmas sales, but that's not to say BB10 cannot still be successful.
What really matters is where RIM goes after BB10. Will RIM have a new product cycle in stores by Christmas 2013, or will they miss an opportunity again?

One thing about the "late launch" is that the message is not muddied by all the other platform noise.Q 10 and Z30 for the win!
