    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.
    A reluctant iPhone 4s user who would STILL be a Blackberry user had RIM not messed it's own bed by putting a "Fisher Price Camera" in it's "flagship" Blackberry Bold 9930.

    Not to call the Grammar Police or anything, but when did "a big big bust" become a negative thing?

    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.

    Apps will be there, I have confidence in what they are doing.

    If you build it they will come.

    Seriously, if it is a bust...... you move on to another device. Simple.

    I have heard that the best way to get out of an elephant is to run around inside 'till you're all pooped out.

    I think folks completely misunderstood Thor when he said he wanted to license BB10, and assumed he meant to other phone makers. If you listen closely he is speaking about BB10 on medical devices, and taking that further how about a BB10 set top box similar to Google or Apple TV. I think their real interest is finding new, out of the box ways to use BB10 and with the flexiblity of QNX I think it's very very possible.

    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.

    If you really had more important things then you wouldn't be commenting on this.

For whatever it's worth, I stopped in my local Verizon store to pay my bill the other day, and for a staff that was so anti BB for the past few years, they were singing a different song the when I was there. All pretty much saying that they can't wait until it's release as well, and most of the reps there were rocking Android, so that told me a lot right there
    hype does not ensure success. look at Star Wars: The Old Republic.
    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

    If it is a big bust then we might have to get our phones from another company in the future

    I'm sure that BBM has reinvented in BB10. I already feel many differences than what we can get from others blackberry OS. Video and voice will be keys functions and 1st interesting factor from bb10.

    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.

    Could what happened to PalmOS (becoming WebOS) be a clue? Could the same thing happen for BBOS and BB10 if RIM go "bust"?

    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.

    People haven't fled anywhere, they have integrated devices into their daily lives wwith costly cancellation contracts.

    I'm convinced that RIM would gladly license BB10 to other handset manufacturers. I'm also convinced that the other manufacturers are all waiting to get a better sense of what the consumer acceptance is going to be for RIM's own devices before they commit.
