    Then you state that they can't complete with the big companies, how is that? If their BB 10 is sexier than the iPhone 5, they can kill Apple. WP8 could easily be the next Vista. I for one don't want to buy anything MS. The Playbook is at OS 2.1, you missed it and it will be going to BB 10 when the phone launches so maybe you are trying to bash the OS for some reason? How you don't know these simple things is beyond me.
    RIM is a handset maker. Every handset ONLY maker is dead or near dead.

    No matter how good BB10 is it will still have to rise above Apple's iTunes/Mac/iPhone/iPad synergies, Microsoft's installed PC/xBox base and Google's ability to give consumers free, ad-infested products.

    BB10 is a Hail Mary pass that has yet to be thrown while the opponent is about to put the game out of reach.

    Apple got out of trouble by conceding the enterprise to Microsoft. They attacked the consumer market and won.

    RIM owned the enterprise and lost it. They admitted they won't pursue the consumer market.

    What's left?
