    Android - iOS - Windows

    be honest with yourself folks, and this includes especially
    those who are RIM fanatics like OP is with Symbian or others
    using still even more exotic mobile operating systems.

    either RIM saddles one of the top running horses above or it
    will become nostalgia only.

    objections welcome.

    Its a very scary time for RIM. I see every iteration of Android, IOS, and windows phone they are just packing more features. The flow UI is a good concept but we all seen this before. Palm webOS was much different as well and handled multitasking with ease but we all know how that turned out. Being successful is much more than a great OS but a complete ecosystem.

    The one thing which RIM could differentiate itself on is security. More and more holes in Android and other systems might get some people thinking seriously about who they can trust with their data. I think in future security is going to be a personal topic as much as a corporate one. RIM needs to make sure BB10 is bulletproof and then market the heck out of it.

    Droid and iOS phones are really pocket PCs with a phone app. Which apparently are what the market wants.

    RIM seems to still believe that the market wants phones which can run apps.

    Why not? The more competition the better for us consumers.

    Research In Motion will only get one shot at delivering a stellar BlackBerry 10 experience. The market will speak afterwards, until that time it is pure speculation. If any mobile platform should perish there is little doubt the fragmented Google Android is the weakest amongst the prevalent platforms available today. That said, the Samsung Galaxy Note is an interesting device, but I will stay with the BlackBerry PlayBook.
