    So we see fonctions of BlackBerry blend. The question is, why BlackBerry would continue to provide BlackBerry link if there is BlackBerry blend? And why BlackBerry would provide for free a competitive solution of Microsoft Outlook ? A rational answer would be BlackBerry providing BlackBerry blend not for free. I expect 29,99$. What's your point of view? Would you pay for this new service?

    First they take they show off balance, and it turns out you need to pay because it's only for BES customers. Will they do the same to Blend? All I can say of they do is waterfak.

    As an office application, BB Blend on the desktop is hardly as feature-rich as Outlook.

    I wish it were different but let's be realistic.

    They will continue with Link because Blend requires Windows 7 and up and many people still have XP. I don't see BlackBerry charging anything for this service as it wouldn't make them any money since there wouldn't be enough people using it. I see it as more of a perk to have a BlackBerry and to get more people to switch over.

    I might be missing something here, but doesn't blend ONLY work with BB10?

    For example it connects your BB10 phone to your PC/Andriod Tab/iPad.

    So if it was free for BB10 users that would just make it free.

    P.s. I wouldn't mind paying a little to use it, it looks really good, but only if they support my Android 4.2.2 tablet!

    BlackBerry Link will and still is used for backing up the device, syncing crap and what not. Blend will be your hub, on the desktop. The two won't replace one another. That's like saying Microsoft Word is going to replace Control Panel. Two different applications, two different functions.

    Did you read Bla1ze's article on the front page? It's clearly stated there that, "Tasks that you might have previously completed using BlackBerry Desktop Software or BlackBerry Link can now be completed using BlackBerry Blend, including: Backing up and restoring device data, Switching to another device, Copying pictures, videos, and music between a computer or tablet and your BlackBerry 10 device."

    So it would be more accurate to start calling BBLink a "legacy" way to connect to your BB10 device, with BBBlend being the new flagship/recommended method?

    And on the subject of Backing Up: could this mean we finally get a way to backup your device on the Cloud? Because I can't imagine putting 8gb+ backups on a tablet would work out great...

    Finally: why hasn't this thread title been adapted yet? Most of these get a clear Rumour or Opinion tag pretty quickly.

    What you are trying to say is not word going te replace control panel, but word going to replace wordpad. Word being blend and wordpad being bblink. Both equal applications, but the first one is more refined. But link has remote access and as far as I have seen blend doesn't.

    Correct me if I am wrong

    Oh I didn't even think of RFA, if Blend gets that it would be a massive advantage. Just imagine accessing your Tablet files on-the-go from anywhere.
    I have gotten so used to RFA I don't even remember to mention it as a big selling point for BB10.

    It would be great I'd Blend would let you backup your device not only to the cloud, but to any cloud. For example I'm running a cloud at home and would love to back up to it.

    Yes it would be great if movie stars could back up their devices using Blend to Icloud.

    Is there any service for which BlackBerry charges a one-time fee? No, so why start here? I think this would be free for consumers and maybe a monthly add-on for BES like eBBM. But I highly doubt they will go the one-time fee route.

    BlackBerry Blend is a replacement for Link, but it only works for devices running 10.3 and up, which is why Link will still be provided. The Passport will be the only device to work with Blend officially until 10.3.1 is pushed to older BB10 devices and of course the Classic when it is released hopefully by the end of the year. BlackBerry Desktop Manager software is still available for legacy BlackBerry devices, which people still use today. I expect it to be free, since it will be the new software for backups, restores, and moving content back and forth from your computer and device, but if BlackBerry were to charge for the email, SMS, BBM, calendar, etc. features, I'd pay for it in a heartbeat whatever the price may be.

    So, keep in mind that if you want to use it on launch, you better load up a 10.3 leak if you are not going to be picking up a Passport.
