    I'd say that was a pretty good interview. The guy was respectful and to the point.

    that was pretty lackluster. great job asking the same questions every other news outlet and tech blog has asked over the past 2 months. really great reporting there verge >.>

    the far more interesting part was the prior interview with the chief scientist from Oblong. I think Rim should seriously consider either purchasing Oblong (after bb10 ofcourse) or partenering up with them for enterprise solutions.

    He (guy from Oblong) even called it out, that we're moving towards a gesture based user interface experience, and with the m2m capability of BB10/qnx, i think his idea of multiple screens all being used independantly for the same problem is not far off.

    Interesting interview but man, I don't know. Not sure I'm a fan of him pretty much saying that the main market for BB10 is for "hyper connected people who multitask and need to get things done". The market has definitively proven time and time again that the market they should be making their primary focus is the consumer market in general. He says "we need to be good at that too" but I kind of don't buy it. It shouldn't be an afterthought. I get what he is doing, he wants to carve out a niche, but it's almost like admitting defeat in the consumer market. I mean when windows phone is your main competitor then you know you're in trouble (because no one cares about windows phone market share wise).

    All in all, although I likely won't buy a BB10 device as my next smartphone upgrade, I do hope it's successful and becomes a relevant choice in my upgrade after the next one. Just expressing some concerns.

    Thor looks a bit tired and it's understandable. He's been running around promoting BB10. It's an okay interview. The Bloomberg interview is more interactive. The interviewer from the Verge is more robotic.

    Not a very good interviewer. You could tell by the forced smile by Thor at the end that he thought so too.

    In other words, RIM should create yet another phone just like Android or iPhone? I for one am glad that they're actually working towards something different in the marketplace.

    The editors and readers of theVerge are generally very negative towards BB(rightfully so?). I'm going over there right now to see what was said this time.

    Justt because TH is saying they are going after the hyper connected it does not mean that they are going to short change the general consumer. In fact everything we have seen points to a great user experience for the "general" consumer + their effort to ensure all the "apps" that a "general" consumer wants are there.

    Looks like you have likely made up your mind to buy something else and are looking for some sort of justification. If you have not, my apologies and in that case wait till Jan 30th hear, experience what RIM has to offer than make an informed choice. And if you have decided to move on - Good for you, have fun.

    If you're just finding out about The Verge crew, you must be new to the internet. It's okay though, there is TONS of content to go through. They are the best tech website out right now but for all things BlackBerry, still keeping it locked to Crackberry.com

    Thor was good, he did look tired but he had good replies to standard questions. I wonder why it's so short though. And I didn't know what to make of Dieter Bohn's face. Was he afraid of asking more? Wasn't really interactive too. They probably recorded quite a bit more?
