lol calm down this aint as cool as the timewarp we got going on in BB10.
Its a decent alternative but my lil sis has this similar thing on her orange phone.This the big reason why RIM put out those demo videos to avoid being ripped.Dont worry samsung wont dissappoint Im sre they'll be ripping BB10 elements in no time.

I wonder how RIM will market this being that everyone else has gotten their version out first. BlackBerry commercials in the US have been less than spectacular aside form an old AT&T commercial for the torch about a year ago so hopefully consumers won't see this as a me too feature by the time BB10 comes out.

Otherwise it'll put a spotlight on RIM playing catch-up and doing a "me too" move - which they don't want to reinforce the fact that it's exactly what they're doing.

Hardware for most devices is all going to be similar.
OS features for most devices is also going to be similar. Have seen a number of BB10 features showing up in commercial for other devices.
Basic look of the devices is similar.
Android sales are based pretty much based on either the low cost devices or having devices that are a little more cutting edge with the newest hardware (there is a new device every other month it seems).
Apple sales are based on "it's cool" (perceived or real it sells), it easy to use (very important for many), and great access to content.
RIM is know for Security and being a "stuffy" work device - and for not keeping with the latest tech over the years.
I think more than anything RIM is going to need to change their IMAGE along with the release of BB10.

Re: New Samsung "Best Face"??
Couldn't agree with the two of you more. What people are forgetting is that cameras on mobile phones are becoming somewhat standardized across manufacturers due to competition. Just like in the camera industry itself. They just have different tweeks to make them somewhat different. A pig is a pig no matter how you dress it up.

Keep in mind, similar feature, can be selling point or not, depending how well integrated it is to the system and how good is the UX. IMO, Time warp feature has both of these ingredients.
Edit: BTW, my personal phone is a android, my work phone is a smartphone from nokia.. Never had a bb phone. But, love my pb. And waiting for bb10. Kool - Aid What? L
