BB10 is going to be big, as long as they can make people realize these small details add up to something major, keeping you connected and productive like no other platform can. I think they failed at this with BBOS7, marketing was the downfall, as we all know the story... BB10 is going to win BIG, cannot wait till 2013/01/30

When I try to sell BB10 to my friends, I tell them what impresses them the most: No more laggy performance on your BB, no more crashes and freezing and spinning clocks, bigger screen, more apps and games. More importantly, no more awful battery life like the 9900 had.
That is what they care about. The common stability, performance and battery life issues the 9900 had has really soured off a lot of the people I know from BBs. Convincing them of a future phone on the horizon where all these issues are fixed has kept many interested. January 30th, we'll see.

Even when I use my iPad I hardly use the home button and will use gestures instead (although Apple's version feels a little more unnatural because they require 4 fingers to use - more like hand gestures as opposed to the PlayBook's finger swipes).

I've noticed recent updates to Android apps I've used for a long time are starting to become gesture based. An example of this is imo.im. It's become REALLY handy and intuitive to use gestures instead of menus, and it's making me excited to try out the different apps on BB10.

Depending on how close it is to coming out is likely to be the limiting factor on how much they show, a brief intro demo of it and no confirmed date and we can probably assume that l-series was trickier to finish than they would have hoped.

LOL. Always interesting to see the endless jabs at the other devices. I get the excitement, but, assuming that Android and Apple are going to just "sit" on the pot and not (well, do something) move their platforms forward is a little naive. "Any device" can be considered trendy- regardless of the device....even Blackberry. As far as cool, that depends on the owner of said device. Anyway, BlackBerry has always done what it does best.......just needed to step their game up to maintain existing consumers, bring old consumers back, and attract new ones to BlackBerry.

I'd put it this way: using the PlayBook / BB10 UI compared to iOS / Android will kind-of be like walking on land vs. walking on the deck of a ship on a rough sea. Sure, after some time, you get used to walking on a ship's deck on a rough sea... but when you get back on dry land, it's a little odd at first, in a good way, then you realize "I don't really wanna go back on that ship."
When I go back to my iPad or my Android devices, I'm constantly making mistakes: exiting apps when I just want to switch, or WANTING to exit them and having to dig to get to a point where the apps actually CLOSE (not all apps have "close" or "exit" functions on the menu)... but with PlayBook, it's always the same to switch and close apps, and no buttons or menu items to find.
Anyone who uses a BB10 device for long enough to get used to it will feel that the iOS and Android UI is seriously primitive... at least, that's how I feel.

Everyone that sees my playbook with the bezel to screen gestures loves it. Especially opening multiple apps at once and bouncing back and forth between them with a couple of simple swipes. Cant wait to do this on a phone. I too find my ipod touch to be ancient with the home button. Home buttons will be more or less for little children that cant yet comprehend the swipe features yet. Like my 2 yr old that loves to push the home button on my ipod touch and wife's I4s.

With BB10, you get those two devices in one, IT can lock down the Balance profile and you have free reign over the personal profile. That will matter to end users.
