    Wow!!!

    I can understand people have an opinion but when I look at Google News feeds and see this hack piece on the Z30

    I find it very disturbing.

    Source PCworld.com


    "New 5-inch BlackBerry Z30 still carries the same old stench of death"

    "Z30 reeks of "too little, too late" and may just be the last handset ever released by the iconic company. "

    if you're interested.

    "You probably shouldn't be. If you're a CrackBerryHead with big hands, you might appreciate the Z30, but it's hard to see this phoning appealing to, well, pretty much anybody else. "

    "What's more, BlackBerry's app store is in shambles, with around 47,000 apps in its 120,000 app-strong library pumped out by a single high volume, low quality developer. "

    Better yet maybe Tweet @BradChacos and let him know what we think about his views on innovation.

    Blackberry maybe isn't perfect at marketing but adding a few plastic colour covers to an iPhone isn't either.

    I would love to see him feel the tweet from loyal Crackberry lovers.

    I really hate all this negativity surrounding BlackBerry right now. Give them a chance to prove themselves,and am sure they will!BlackBerry ruled when apple wasn't even conceived, nothing against apple but hold your horses people! Let's see how and where the chips fall.You ppl can brag after ,if and when BlackBerry goes down.

    I think the developer of the Apps should be shown this comment

    "What's more, BlackBerry's app store is in shambles, with around 47,000 apps in its 120,000 app-strong library pumped out by a single high volume, low quality developer. "

    and forward them to http://chacoswritingservices.com/

    This could be potentially is borderline Libel ....

    Some common law jurisdictions also distinguish between spoken defamation, called slander, and defamation in other media such as printed words or images, called libel.[2]

    But this comment "What's more, BlackBerry's app store is in shambles, with around 47,000 apps in its 120,000 app-strong library pumped out by a single high volume, low quality developer. "

    Is borderline Libel which is a serious issue. Its all fun and games until someones reputation is destroyed.

    Agreed.

    The article may not be friendly, but the author isn't necessarily wrong.

    The part about the apps, he got right in any case.

    Its not about his comment on the apps, but calling them a Low Quality Developer ?

    Imagine if someone called him a low quality Blogger.. when it's his livelihood.

    True the Apps count is correct but no need for insulting peoples reputation

    I'm heading to Hong Kong next week and I'm going to be meeting the S4BB guys at their HQ there. Gonna have a big piece talking about their development practices and hopefully clearing up exactly how spammy they are.

    I think the situation has a lot more to do with BlackBerry's submission policies than an individual developer's practices.

    It may be true, but the world is about spin. I have the nexus 7 tablet and actually have less apps on it than on my Z10. Reason: I only need a few apps. Sorry but it's true. I think about 1000 apps should cover just about any user. Beyond that you are way in the tail. There is no reason to rant that BB World has 47,000 apps and Apple has 800,000 + apps of the 800,000 + how many are crap? My guess is well over 700,000.

    Most of what (excluding the apps part)? A couple of opinions about the stench of death and too little too late. Just his opinions.

    I'm not going to read it, but "stench of death"? Really? I don't care if it's a negative article or whatever, but that just sounds juvenile.
