used an htc one s for 24 hrs, just saw the S3 = I think RIMs future is very bright
for individuals that don't want to lug around a micro tablet, don't care about social stuff, taking pics all the time, etc. As long as they continue to target people that want to get things done fast they are fine. ICS has no concept of profiles or notifications - there idea is to tie the volumes together of calls and email, so if you are on call and want to suppress everything but calls you are out of luck. want to take a quick pic and send it? no chance. want to use your device with one hand? good luck. If you love how your bb does things and you really use it then you will hate the other options, I am sure of it. Sorry for the rant, tried to make a psa out of the post but I failed lol. There goes 24 hours of my life I will never get back and people are excited about the S3 - really? I must be from a different era.

haha I cant say those 24rs were lose. I say u gained some knowledge.
I like Android nothing against them, but their phones are getting wayyyyyy to big. The S2 was already huge enough. come on just make the resolution of the screen better not a huge tablet/phone

Not trying to be rude here but I really think that s3 looks pretty ugly. Although it doesn't look like people feel the same way about it.
I'm pretty sure though if this was how the first BB10 phone looked, people would not approve of the design.

Yeah true op.
Just saw a pic of s3 *facepalm* Plain plasticy cheap stupid s*ht.
S2 was a beauty and a gem in itself.
I didn't even bothered to look at the specs of the new Samsung bloatware, the looks made me do a suicide.
But I thank Samsung for releasing their paperweight at this time when rimm had a blast with their os sneakpeek. And oh boy did u see that alpha device and its specs. Good news: its still just gonna get dumped. Imagine how good the final production unit would be. *multiple orgasms*

I take my 9100 off charge on friday @ 9a and I still have a charge @ 9a monday - where is that setting on any android?
I take a pic and in one move select email, size, drill down into my contacts and its sent - no way to do this with android this easy
I different vibrations; both lengths and counts for clients and friends - where is this setting?
I have different volumns for calls than my email notifications, where do I set this in ics?
I have a red led, I don't see one on this htc??
I have email that somehow feels rock solid through a bes server, active sync not so much imo.
I don't have a power button that I have to tap all the time, then an unlock, press any key and the bb is alive, enter a repetitive unlock code and I am in. unread email is right on the screen, no need to drill down (simple black theme)
To me basic business functions, making calls, sending email, etc can be done faster on a bb. I use a 9100 because the keys are huge and I can type without looking and with one hand but I also like the full sized ones. I would like to know of one business function an ics device can do equal or better to a bb - not picking a fight, I really want to know this.

there is nothing wrong with making existing users happy and there is a good base of them with bb - apple seems to be happy with consumers @ home, ms is clearly interested in enterprise - there is nothing wrong with having a good spot and not doing it all well - the easy people to sell are the existing users. I was very impressed with the V10 demo I saw, I really wish RIM the best success as there are still many loyal users of the product.

Well, given that Samsung has overtaken Apple as the #1 smartphone supplier and also overtaken Nokia as the #1 overall phone provider then it is pretty clear that your wants and needs are against the grain of the vast majority of the consuming public..
All the things you are ranting and whining about (in the wrong forum btw) are hghly desirable features to the 92% of US smartphone users who chose other than BB, not to mention that the majoirty of your perceived issues can be overcome with apps.
and yes I own a BB, and would not seriously consider an iphone or android as my primary phone as yet, but despite this fact it does not make me lose touch with market realities

The nine feature you mention are wonderful, but they are not new, they have existed for a while. The numbers suggest that they are not a selling point. The endgame is the sale.

lol I am easy to please! really, you don't have an attachment for any material object that runs that deep? the last time I felt like this is when I changed to look pedals from speed plays, its been a long time, or the first time I got a car with an active suspension. I love stuff that makes a difference in my life

a "look at me" post of personal rant about an android phone belongs funnily enough in the android sub forum..not in the general blackberry discussion forum.
Like all ranters, you miss any and all obvious points.. your personal needs and likes/dislikes are out of touch with the 92% of the market that do NOT buy BB.. you frankly sound like the BGR of BB
