    I don't know what happened with the device this guy is holding, but I've noticed two strange things from the OS

    first it's the Active Frames screen, where only 7 are displayed

    And secondly, Big Fail, the guy talks about the really good battery life you get from the phone, while the battery active frame shows only 9h of remaining battery @ 75% charge!!!!!! oh my.....

    Battery monitor shows real time battery usage so if that's a demo device then that means it can do exactly what it's doing there continuously for 9 hours.

    how much does he insist on "you don't have Instagram?"
    Sorry but yes we do have Instagram!
    Igrann is fantastic and for those who prefer the original just go and download it on the Amazon store (or via Snap..but that should be too difficult for a "journalist" specialised in Modern Technology...).

    Instagram is not on the Amazon store. You can't use the version off snap it doesn't work. You have to download an older apk (somewhere on crackberry) but then it will work great.

    ah ok thanks for the tips (but the few times i use that platform i prefer iGrann and find it very good)
    and for once a developer took some time to make an app (iGrann) and nobody seems to care, Blackberry speaker missed a huge opportunity to show the journalist he was wrong and to promote great developers on bB10.

    True, it's geared towards enterprise not the general public.

    Hopefully some enterprising developer comes up with a "Passport Gamepad" that allows you to use the touch sensitive keyboard and physical keys as an analog joystick+buttons Gamepad.
