    There's no guarantee the current bb users will transfer to BB10. BB and BB10 aren't compatible, so in a way it's a fresh start with no users.
    May wind up being me, if BB doesn't allow me to run any of the applications I paid for to transfer to the BB 10 phones - or if I just don't like the newer phones.

    For similar reasons, I and many others didn't adopt WebOS when Palm gave classic Palm OS the middle finger.

    Is apple giving developers the nail?

    Like a blackmail, you support bb10, and we no longer support you.

    You guys think that's possible?

    hard to say but it is possible because i remember that Apple executives were more than unhappy when Instagram was released on Android platform.

    Okay then, let's assume 3 out of every ten people that currently have bb would switch to bb10. Let's just say that number is 21 million. Well, based on the fact people are contractually obligated still, this would mean that 21 million would likely take place over a 2 year time span. Throw in another 5 million from people switching from another platform and you have yourself 26 million bb10 users after 2 years (which would mean they are averaging over 1 million a month, which would be a surprise to me).

    Even If that turns out to be the case though, then this would confirm that bb10 would still not be a viable platform to develop for initially, if ever. To even get to that 26m would likely take more than a 18 months after launch which could likely result in complete loss in developer interest by then. That's assuming the demand is even that great for 3/10 current users.

    i've heard that rim makes it extra easy to port apps to bb10 platform.
