Re: New BB10 phones just the beginning, RIM exec says
I could care less if its 10k - 30k - 50k- 100k what matters is the top 200 and Rim says that the top 200 are there. I will use maybe 40 of those if that. My BlackBerry10 device will never need 100k apps.
Now what really matters....do I go for the L or the N???

100K apps included ported android apps + BB10 native. I believe this was made clear in several interviews that there will be 100k+ apps for BB10 at launch, so this doesnt include BBOS. On another note, some android ported apps work great on my playbook (Taptu is one of them) so ported android doesnt mean bad quality.

I really dont care about apps, sure some are for me are important but for the most part I do not care. I really dont care if BB10 has skype or netflix or amazon video at launch or ever. Personally I think you are a tool if you watch movies or tv shows on a smartphone, its stupid and probably causes damage to a persons eyes having to look at such a small screen for so long my opinion. I can see streaming youtube videos because they are for the most part short.

RIM still sees themselves as a smartphone maker and not a computer maker.
RIM does not only have to have a gazillion apps available at launch they also need a strong third party peripheral support as well. One of the biggest reasons people buy iOS and Android devices is the plethora of accessories, cases and other add-ons that add to the experience. Ecosystem is not just about apps. It's about third party companies willing to invest in the system to make accessories in order to make money. And the money will only be made by adaption.
