    I really distrust android after 4 years of being with them.

    If the passport really is the last true BlackBerry then windows or ios it is for me.

    Definitely BBOS.
    Coz Android is running on an Java-like virtual machine, which makes it slow and processing power consuming.
    I will keep using a blackberry only if they don't go to android.

    I would drive to try it. However, I can only guess that I will be back to bb10, as I did when I abandoned iPhone after less than a year.

    I think they will still offer bb10 direct but the carrier versions will probably come with android.

    I think I already voted. But, I'd like the Slider to run a new, considerably improved version of BB10. That's what I would have expected if not for the confusion of Chen.

    It's a little disappointing that we aren't having any discussion about what we'd like to see in the next evolution of BB10. Makes me think that things are kind of already determined to be Android.

    I also commonly hear that BB10 flopped and can't sell. In reality, Thor undersold supply and market expectations, but still had enough sales to beat OnePlus, the current darling of the smartphone industry. Sure, sales have plummeted to ridiculous lows under the leadership of John Chen as has growth of the ecosystem. There's a clear failure here, but it's not clear to me that it's BB10. Let's get rid of John Chen and move forward with building the mobile computing platform of the future. He can go sell crummy EMM crapware elsewhere. There are lot of companies selling that and many of the with better solutions than BlackBerry software.

    I prefer BlackBerry OS, and compatible to load android apps. The BlackBerry OS is open the biltz/ Leaked to BlackBerry fans. The dull android OS no way of leaked update and not secure OS.
    Slider must not has physical keypad. Due to phones industry tends and most people is fond of full touch screen.

    BB10 except I have little pertaining to me in the way of apps that can make full use of the hardware. I do have FUD impressions of Android but it doesn't come without experience using it and from those around me using it and even admittedly envying my BB10. iOS is too restrictive as a computer for me but at the same time I create far more in terms of personal productivity on a 6 year old iDevice than I can on a BB10 device. But as a proprietary os, BB10 is a nice balance between security and freedom. It's just unfortunate that in war of OSes, BB10 has too little too late in the way of attracting developer attention.. Imagine, as a music creator, the abilities the Passport cold provide, with it's keyboard, wide screen, and even frets like a musical instrument would have. Imagine strumming down on the keys like strings of a guitar with its touch enabled features. It's a shame in a way that I play with a fantastic app, one of many, in a low audio latency os to do this on a phone with low resolution, a single core processor and only a quarter of a gig of ram. BB10 still gets my vote unless my concerns of Android are unwarranted.
    I'll have to take back what I've said pertaining to not making use of the hardware on a BB10 device catering to my interests. I have discovered Caustic 3 in Blackberry Appworld for my all-touch device. BB10 gets the vote from me wholeheartedly!!

    Though I will admit, if anyone could possibly make an official OHA Android handset with Google services less successful than BB10, BlackBerry would be the company to do it.

    That's actually a good idea. Carriers might actually want to sell it as its android but the hard core fans could continue as always to buy the phone online

    I don't get this, if blackberry decides to go Android or maintain BB10, what else can we do about it? It's all about trying to save the company that would work best for the future of BlackBerry. They're more focused on their enterprise customers. So yeah, whatever the wind of BlackBerry blows...

    Have used plain vanilla Androids (from v3.2 to 5.1) as a third device for a spare line at home. Android sans oem skins is quite good, but multi tasking is still clunky.
    Even the cards in 5.1 can't match the ease with which active frames work.
    For me active frames are like multiple windows open on a desktop.

    Hub, in-built app permissions control (you have to jump a couple of hoops to achieve this in Android), keyboard (physical BB10 > virtual BB10 > native Android) are other plus points for BB10.

    Throughout the OS the overall 'flow' is better and more cohesive in BB10 thanks to the work (even if borrowed as some would say) originally done by TAT.

    The Samsung Blackjack was my first ever "smartphone". I then got the Epix which was the successor, and then when Samsung stopped offering another successor I went over to the Blackberry Torch 2. I loved it, the phone served me well for 2 years until the hardware became obsolete and the phone just was extremely slow and it physically started falling apart.

    I went over to the Note 2 because Blackberry didn't offer anything I wanted (Didn't like the Z or the 10). I lost my Note 2 in March and used the Classic for a few days. Didn't like it, it actually ran really really slow the 3 days I had it. I type fast, and the text would lag as I was typing. I actually didn't have that problem with the Torch 2, so I returned it and went to Note 4.

    If BB came out with a slider phone with a huge screen like the Dell Venue Pro, with Android compatibility I'll sell my Note 4 tomorrow and switch over.

    I have a very nice Moto360 watch that I love, but it is incompatible with Blackberry.

    The Android Keyboard + Swype aren't that great for me. As fast as I type the touchscreen has done better at following my fingers compared to the Note 2, but still far too many errors which is why I will always want a physical keyboard. Physical keyboard is also great for texting while driving, since I never have to look down to check if what I type is correct.

    After having a phone the size of the Note 4, I won't ever go back to a smaller screen like what's on the classic. This Venice slider looks to be the best of everything I want (physical keyboard, large HD screen, sleek design, and possibly Android compatibility so my Moto360 can work with it).
