    Everyone thinks that BB10s biggest competition will be iPhone and iOS, dont get me wrong Apple is a very powerful opponent for RIM. However Samsung's products are much more powerful peices of equipment and maybe even a bigger challenge for BB10, since it already has so many features.

    But you feel free to judge.

    Actually, it sounds petty and bitter to think it's silly for someone being able to buy a phone.

    Brings a lot of things in your posts into crystal clear clarity.

    And again you bring up cash.

    I'm done with you. Switching to desktop so I don't run into your bitterness.

    This may be true, if the lead weren't so large. This phone is only a year after my Skyrocket and the difference is HUGE. It is POWER.

    It's not useless on a smartphone screen, I use it for casual viewing daily.

    And let's not forget that you can also show the smartphone screen using HDMI to a large monitor. Multi-window becomes even more practical here.

    Yes of course. I am quite familiar with fanboy apologetics.

    App missing? I have a browser than can access the full web.
    No Kindle app? I have an physical Kindle that is much easier on the eyes.
    No Skype? I have Skype on my laptop/computer (but who cares no one uses it anyway)
    No Netflix? I have a bunch of bookmarks which let me watch random videos on the web.
    No turn by turn navigation? I have a Garmin for that.
    No autocorrect? I know how to spell LOL.

    Do you carry a big screen monitor and an hdmi cable with you? I carry a laptop.

    Edit In UK we have a choice of 3 free turn by turn navigation apps on BB, just saying. And I do have a kindle lol, I just bought the Paperwhite

    Honestly? BB has the best and easiest spell check ever. I stand by no need for autocorrect.

    That's the whole point though. There's often workarounds but they are usually second rate like those navigation apps.

    Congratulations on the Paperwhite.

    I'll ignore the congratulations lol

    They are NOT second rate apps in any way, they are fully fledged navigation apps. and I believe the phone+hdmi cable+monitor is the workarounf for a laptop, not the other way around.

    Horrible experience, for a start is there no search within settings to look for the one you need? For example I open options and start typing "loc" to get to the location settings.

    And why do some prompts show up in landscape when the phone is in portrait?

    I find nothing appealing about it.

    Hmmm. I think the SIII is a great device but I'm not super impressed with the features in this video. Does the SIII have universal search?

    Congrats, I played with the SIII yesterday. What an awesome device, I love the size ( That's what she said). Samsung is definitely bringing their A game in the smartphone arena.

    I know right? It just seems so ineficient.

    SG3: open camera, tap options, scroll scroll, tap GPS tag, tap On, tap outside the menu area to close menu. Repeat to turn it off.

    BB: open camera, tap geolocation icon and the same to turn it off.

    I know!!! Unfortunately I just got home from having to do shopping and getting my mani/pedi so I haven't had time to play with it very much. Was only able to do settings (my live wallpapers....yay....) got my ringtones, FB, Twitter, Instagram all set up....getting into the Google play store downloaded everything over the air for me while I was playing with settings so it was all just smooth as silk. Smoother even than iPhone, since it's all OTA as you're doing other stuff and not reboots....it just does it in the background as you play so no stopping and starting.

    DMarch I haven't seen universal search yet...haven't really thought of looking....it might not be there, I don't know. Right now I'm doing my Favourites and my speed dial. Setting up Skype....might use it for the first time this week, we'll see....never used it on the phone before. Signing into Latitude, et.

    Universal Search is there. Look for it in the settings of Google Now.



    edit: About 30 million sold.

    They've sold tons of them and for good reason. It is a great device.
