    I know its not likely but I'd love to see a whole portfolio of mobile phones and tablets announced. I just think it would led weight and scale to the whole launch of BB10, as in "Over the long term these are the BlackBerry products for mobile computing and they will continue to get more powerful and ubiquitous. Look for them to be available 1st, L (Touch) series, quickly followed by qwerty N series and gen2 Playbooks of 7 and 10 inch sizes" (quotes are mine) Make sure the portfolio works together to add value for businesses and have consumer apps available and market then the snot out of it to businesses with a sales force that builds relationships with people who make decisions in those businesses re:IT and then make targeted consumer ads to increase general visibility and product awareness.

    I guess I'd like to see specs increased over what we expect. I see a lot of concern that the A series may come out within 6 months with great specs. Would be nice if the rumored A series specs were in the L series.

    Hey I can dream. :-)

    OS 10 for Playbook. I'm not planning on buying a BB10 phone right away, so that's the only one that appeals to me.

    I voted for L series will be released within a week of launch, but I really wanted to vote for "all of the above" except "don't care". Why is that even in the list?

    @Bold I get your concern there, and I'm not talking about immediate product availability except for the L series, but I'm also imagining that product development has begun on the next Playbook gen, with a parallel team devoted to that, optimizing it for BB10 and as a computing productivity platform. So, I'm hoping to see them flesh out their product roadmap for businesses and articulate their vision of mobile computing within the enterprise including BES10 and how BlackBerry products provide the most secure cost effective solution that they can buy into on the market. So my hope is that the next gen Playbooks would be available in the summer or for back to school. Again, not likely, but a lovely surprise if it happens.

    I expect/hope for:
    1. Some amazing new feature that we couldn't have dreamed of from a smartphone (eg: maybe the phone makes coffee, or has a pico projector built in etc.). These could also be in form of some cool accessory bundled-in with the phone. One can dream, right? :-)
    2. Amazing battery life (20+ hours on a single charge on 3g/4g, wifi on) and waterproof or water-ressistance, shock ressistance!
    3. Immediate availability, < 1 week
    *******
    Dear BlackBerry,
    UPGRADE existing users to BB 10. Don't want to price devices too low? Start a 'trade-up' program. Let existing BB users exchange their old (even non-working) devices for new BB10. Eg: Old BlackBerry + $250 = Z10 This way, you won't have to officially lower your MSRP.

    I'll take a game changing feature here. I've been with the others and came back to the 9810 because it has what I need. It might take something game changing to get me to give up my trackpad, convenience keys, etc.

    I'm hoping for a $400 off contract price for London if leaked specs are what shows up, and a BlackBerry TV devices to be announced along with a BB10 home vpn/router. Last is pipe dream of mine.

    I put it on the poll, but I really have my doubts about a new tablet for now. Considering how much money they lost on the playbook. But the old roadmap showed one so who knows. It would be a suprise like the title of this says!

    Pre order is not the best option for getting a device first. Pre order is best when a device is expected to sell out very fast and you want to ensure you get one of the first batch. In blackberrys case i would just go to a carrier store and pick one up on release day.

    If RIM makes a big enough deal about BB10 on launch day, it just might sell out. If they market it correctly as a new device you NEED to have AND it has the specs/features/app support people want, they could pull it off.

    Im not taking that risk. I will be at the rogers store in conestoga mall, waterloo,ontario, canada first in line again on release day. The rogers store closest to headquarters. Will get it the minute it is released like the 9000 and 9900. Able to inspect my device to make sure they have no defect.

    Much of what I'd like to see has already been mentioned:

    1) A range of devices announced.

    2) Perfect execution. I've only had two BBs -- the 9800 and the 9810. If BB10 and RIM do things right, I'll get the first shot at not getting a warranty replacement in under a year after purchase. That would be refreshing.

    3) A $400 off contract price was mentioned. I'd add unlocked to that. It's time that RIM cut the carrier umbilical cord. The Nexus 4 was $50 less than $400, unlocked, quint band to cover most GSM carriers. It sold out at least once.

    4) Marketing! Please, RIM, fix your marketing. There's nothing about BB10 anywhere except tech sites. And we're under 2 months from launch! There should already be a buzz being generated about BB10 for the nontechies! What press there is out there seems to be split between pro and con. Is RIM even trying to nudge the press in the right direction?

    I am guessing they are waiting for holiday season to be over. Don't want their marketing message to be lost among 1000s others that are competing for attention in holiday season. I think we will start seeing marketing buzz build-up starting January.
