Will you be buying a Blackberry 10 device?
RIM is currently expected to have zero subscriber growth. I assume that's because many subscribers are waiting and will buy a BB10 device.Blackberry 10 > Windows Phone 7/8 > Blackberry 7 > WebOS > iOS > Android > Symbian > Meego

I would argue that I don't really know if people are necessarily holding out for BB10. Many of he few BB users I personally know had no idea what BB10 was until I told them it was coming. A few want the iP5 but being in a contract is what keeps them from doing so.
But to answer the question....as long as I continue to like what I see and RIM can provide me with a truly competitive device to what's out there now, then yeah I'm definitely getting oneYes I am black...and yes I LOVE grape Kool Aid. I can't blame u for judging me

I will be buying the full touch BB10 phone. Not sure if I will buy it immediately or when my contract ends (August) since RIM said that they will be releasing more top of the line phones later in the year.My goal here is to help out and provide knowledge! Feel free to shoot me a PM

I intend to purchase the direct successor to the Bold after its had some shelf time to allow some reviews and software updates. I assume this will be the "Nevada." Either way, I want the flagship device, no exceptions.

I left BlackBerry and now have an Android based phone. I couldn't wait any longer. But I'm waiting for the new BB10 phones, if they impress me enough, I would consider leaving my Galaxy S III and coming back. It would really have to be up to par or better for me to leave though. For now I'll continue to observe and wish all the best for RIM.

I will give the seed device I'll get the run around and if it passes muster - then YES.....
...I'm expecting RIM will have fixed the things that were broken on OS7.
...& left the things not broken ALONE.
What I want to find on BBX
- Password Keeper
- Ability to rename pictures taken on the fly
- same old great calendar!
Expect the following broke things to be GONE
- Truncated Email
- inibility to email video
- no auto focus camera ( can't take functional close up pictures )
- massive quality app gap
Blackberry was my first smartphone and I've got a soft spot for RIM to be sure....
...Let's hope that they REALLY deliver this time!As of 2.20.2015 I'm packing a Blackberry Classic - so far so good!

I don't like buying anything new without trying it first. So after trying and liking.

Maybe! I use Android now, but I'm not really wedded to the platform. If BB10 offers impeccable fundamentals (the unified messaging, and multitasking are a good start) along with superior battery life, a competitive camera, a minimum level of app support (I need WhatsApp, HeyTell, and excellent maps), and the same build quality we saw with the playbook, I could definitely be swayed. I'm waiting for the QWERTY model in particular.

I'm so excited for the future of BlackBerry 10, for the future of RIM!

I have had some kind of BlackBerry device for the last five years, and with the constant delays, the lack luster customer service, many broken promises, lack of third party support (accessories and apps), ect. ect. ect......my enthusiasm concerning RIM has greatly deteriorated. I'm not sure if I'm buying the BB10 at the moment, I think I'm going to let my 9930 run its course and then some, while keeping an eye on the BB10 (with keypad). If its as good as "slightly" advertised, then I will take more of a serious look.
