    Has the boot up time from off to operational been noted or discussed here yet? Will it be a slow process like BB10 or no?

    I think it would be slower then the regular android boot, since the OS has been layered with BlackBerry security features.

    That's what I'm thinking. It might be off putting to "new" BB customers though.

    Probably about the same as bb10.... but honestly as long as it's under 2 minutes... does it really matter... Humanity has no patience.

    Ask if you can turn it off to see the boot logo! Then you could get an estimate. Have fun tomorrow, looking forward to it!

    I'm also puzzled when people worry about boot time. To me that's like asking how long it takes to change the car tire when buying a car? Don't think I've ever heard anyone say "yeah, its a great phone but it takes too long to boot".

    How often do people reboot, especially with a non-removable battery? I would guess I reboot maybe twice a month at most. If a phone took 10 minutes to boot I would not mind as long as the wait was justified in a more secure, better performing phone.

    Slow boot time is a exclusive BlackBerry feature, it gives you time to look outside and enjoy the view or actually interact with people, like, you know, before we dug our head in mobile phones and such.

    Seems you haven't booted webOS devices, those are THE phones for the slow movement
    So perhaps this is a "feature" of heavy gesturebased OSes.

    The slightly slower boot time is due to BlackBerry secure root of trust checking everything from hardware, OS and apps.

    It's a good thing not bad. It's a bragging point.

    And seriously it's only 2mins or less so it's not a big deal at all.

    It's what will make the BlackBerry android special.

    It's not like it's not doing anything. It's securing your device.

    It wil be 10.6 seconds just tried it.

    Edit: a regular Android device boots in about 30 seconds. I always hated how bb10 could take sooooo long to boot.

    Everytime people ask me why their BlackBerry 10 or old BlackBerry device takes a long time to boot I'll tell then because it's securing the device and suddenly it's not a problem anymore.

    Want fast boot? Get an insecure device. Simple.

    I take back my statement that it's a joke. Just read this blog post what's happening on boot and I'm impressed although I don't understand too much what's happening there. But what I understand is why it's taking longer to boot and that's good.

    I'll be fine with a sub 2 minute boot time, but for the love of God let the phone be usable one it boots.

    My Q10 will take its sweet time booting then add in an extra 3 or so minutes before I can use any app or look at the hub.

    And then if I get a phone call after it boots it pretends like I don't have any contacts loaded on my phone.

    BBOS had a way longer boot time, but everything worked the second It was up and running, I feel like with BB10 it's basically the same total time from totally off to totally useable.

    Good news.

    Under 90 seconds.


    But I won't give a better time than that because it doesn't matter if it's faster than that.


    Have patience and a sip of water and it's booted.

    Great. Thanks for sharing.

    As for the old longer boot times of BB10. It's easily explainable to a bunch of propeller heads like us but as we all know the masses [where the money is] will not care a frig about "why" it takes so long, they just want it on "now".

    Boot to lock screen then maybe like 5-10 seconds to load hub and media.

    64gb sd
    Hub contains everything from Z10 launch day. (minus emails from gmail)
