If Netflix and Skype are up and running for BB10 it for SURE will not be a bloodbath....
...RIM will easily rebuild it's user base in North America.
RIM lost it's market share because it's devices couldn't use the POPULAR Apps IOS and Droid COULD use....
...It's not any more difficult than that - RIM shores that up and their problems are over.
...They already have world class quality hardware and always have had that.
Everyone will be waiting to see if RIM can produce the kinds of functionality that cost it their market share......
...If RIM can deliver those things they will be just fine in North America.
...If not they still have a great market in the third world.As of 2.20.2015 I'm packing a Blackberry Classic - so far so good!

Really?!! Sorry, I've got more important things going on than to worry about "what ifs". There's a million of those. If it happens, you deal with it.If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

Choose another OS? Seriously. If BB10 doesn't do what you want pick one that does. It is not rocket science it is a phone coupled to a handheld computer and a camera. Dozens and dozens of companies make such a device./ device agnosticism or bust!

I'm not going to talk about why I think BB10 will be a success, as that wasn't the question. But if I take the OP's question for what I think it means, as in, what if the entire world of smartphone buyers does not embrace this OS and sticks with Android and iOS? I think RIM will exist and continue to make the other products it makes very well. Remember, there are a lot of cars out there running QNX.

Advertising will be key.
A solid release more so.
BB10 looks really good, but it really doesnt offer too much more to the average consumer. At best it will be a viable third choice with a hardcore following of people who crave top notch communications from their device.
And for most of their customers in the UK, the blackberry's main strength isnt the keyboard or the security. It's BBM. With the competition having their own, perhaps lesser, version of BBM, Blackberry needs to show off some of the improvements to BBM

What if BB10 is a big big bust?
And those features are built in BBM though your bb10 has to be connected with wifi network. You cannot use video and voice chat at mobile network.

If BB10 is as good as currently advertised, it will take RIM out of intensive care and into recovery mode. All RIM needs to do to stay competitive is reel back enough BB loyalists who have fled to IOS and Android. I believe BB10 will do that if everything we are hearing about the phone pans out.
