    That would be handy.

    I love how they start listening to user complaints about the UI and so on after they decide to slice the company in half and abandon the consumer market.

    Sigh.

    That will be awesome. I can't wait. Grey boxes around apps make the interface look dated, in my opinion.

    It's not. At least as far as I can find. But the latest leaks are still far from complete. They are trying new things, that is confirmed.

    Could a 3rd party Dev then somehow create blank icons which do nothing so we can arrange the homescreen how we like? Without it looking weird with grey boxes.....

    I hope, that if they do this, they will put more apps on the screen, since there will be more "free space" on the screen

    Dear BlackBerry,

    If you want to improve the homescreen at this point, a better feature to start with would be landscape. Kthxbai

    This would be well received by me. My only concern is the icons would look unusually spaced if you remove the grey background. I know I'm in the minority here but I liked the larger icons they first revealed for bb10.

    This is seemingly wrong and the case of a mistaken reply. Also why you should never trust Twitter without verifying it secondly.

    Who cares about the icon block. How about the native ability to have different wallpaper for the lock screen and the home screen, not some dumb work around.

    This is seemingly wrong and the case of a mistaken reply.

    Pity though. Because after nearly 6-9 months of users shouting into the void about various missing or poorly-implemented features of BB10, all the sudden over the last couple of months Blackberry does this:

    • Software official announces likely return of "delete on device only" email option, after many many people bitterly protested the removal of that traditional Blackberry feature from BB10
    • Brings preliminary OpenVPN support to 10.2, after people had been griping about the lack of it most of the year
    • Brings the ability to compose emails in plain text in 10.2, after many people complained about the enforced and dumb HTML formatting of BB10 email up until now
    • Brings back the dark theme, after inexplicably introducing it with the Q10 and then removing it permanently shortly thereafter amid bitter complaints from users
    • Took the company 6 months to provide more than 30 day email sync capability despite this feature being standard on the competition's products


    There are other items but I can't remember them right now.

    The thing that struck me most about the recently announced financial loss and inventory buildup of unsold Z10s is that it is clear evidence that the company has not been listening to users, resellers and industry partners, to the point where they had no idea what the actual demand for their product was. Thorsten's confident proclamation that BlackBerry would sell "tens of millions" of Q10s was the most embarrassing example.

    Either this company starts paying attention to what the market and their customers are telling them for a change, or they are more doomed than they already appear to be.
