    There may actually be a scientific technical explanation for the color change, just sayin. Blackberry seems to be shifting to all S-AMOLED display technology, which is great because the power draw is less than LCD panels being that the displayed color is a unlit / off (black) until the user makes a request to the phones display. So better battery life for us... The price you pay is with S-AMOLED's displays, whomever makes them, loss of color production over time. AMOLEDs are lit using a chemical reaction, hence different reactions for different colors, they produce slightly oversaturated colors in part because of this. The very worst color for an AMOLED display is, you guessed it, BLUE. The reaction process depletes the BLUE spectrum nearly twice as fast as any other color used on AMOLED panels. So it may very well just be forward thinking to use another main color accent to keep the display of static images from blue accents from "burning in" (technicallyy burning out). Just a thought!
    Exactly! I posted this a couple pages back and no one seemed to notice/care... seems they prefer rant on about nonsense....

    The ability to set custom accent colour is currently delayed according to the development road map.

    I hope it appears in 10.3.

    No no no. I just meant I like the left and right to answer. 10.3 is the same as 10.2.1

    I thought people bought BlackBerrys for the sophistication IF we want customizable colors we can buy a droid or windows phone
    Good plan. Send more people over to another platform.

    With statements like that no wonder BlackBerry is in trouble.

    This article on N4BB shows a press render of 10.3. Looks like BlackBerry is going to be keeping the red accents throughout the OS and shows an integrated voice control system.

    There is a multiple choice in this, red, 10.2, Android or iPhone. Red is out for me so I have only 3 choices.

    I think the thing would be not to force anyone to make that choice. Let them select the accent color.

    None of this is official. It might be an early release of a press render. To take this as accurate is just silly. I have some swamp land in florida to sell u as well. Its official swamp land though so it must be true. Just ridiculous. Thats the problem with leaks and rumours. No one to say otherwise so its always deemed as true. Maybe it will be or wont be lets just wait until the official 10.3 comes out instead of this poor excuse for reporting.

    As I said a few weeks back, all I want is bright pink accents with a dark purple-themed OS...because I'm a 5-year-old girl.

    In all seriousness, either the red or the cyan is fine with me. I quite like the red with that white theme in the 10.3 leak...though it isn't such a big deal to me.

    Customization is the best option and since BlackBerry have already said in their roadmap that they are going with customizable accents, I suppose we have our answer.

    I'm not a huge fan either, but that's where the market seems to be going so I will have to just put up with it.

    If you take it with the context, they mention in together with the addition to light/dark theme which are user designated, not developer. Additionally, they're talking about accents, not the apps themselves. Not saying that this should be taken as a promise and yes it does stand that it has been up for a while.

    Lastly, even if it were a promise, let's not talk about broken PlayBooks, I mean promises ;-). I'm simply regurgitating what they have on their rode map which was mentioned by someone before me too. All I did was attach the image and my own comment.

    It's a developer roadmap for 3rd party developers. It does not signify what will be added to the core OS, only to the cascades tools that developers use. That's all it's ever been.

    The light/dark theme is not a user choice for 3rd party apps, it's a developer choice. Think about it, it's not even a system wide setting, it's set from within the apps. None of this means that the option for customizable system accents won't come, but the developer roadmap is not an indication of this.

    The accent will be red. The voice assistant will sound like KITT. David Hasselhoff will be the celebrity spokesman. You heard it here first.

    If you want to go after the young market hire Clifford the Big Red Dog.

    It's the general attitude that rather than giving BlackBerry users customized options give them one option and if they don't like it too bad. Send them to another platform.

    It's silly. BlackBerry can't afford to be sending people to other platforms.

    It doesn't matter since you'll be able to install a theme you like, with the colour accents you want
