    To put this in context The Street (Cramer) has been notoriously negative on RIM and, as of yesterday, still had a sell rating on RIM shares.

    TheStreet got a sneak peek of BlackBerry 10 running on a prototype of one of RIM's new devices this week, and was quietly impressed with the new OS.

    A sophisticated operating system, clearly geared towards tech-savvy gadget users, BlackBerry 10 is designed "for an audience that enjoys multi-tasking," according to RIM.

    One of the best parts of the OS is the new BlackBerry Keyboard, a touchscreen version of the physical keyboard found on the company's existing devices. The keyboard offers impressive next word prediction, letting users "flick" words to the screen with a single gesture, something which will be useful for one-handed typing. Impressively, Keyboard can both auto correct and predict in three languages -- English, French and Spanish.

    Overall, despite my initial misgivings, BlackBerry Keyboard was both easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.

    There was heated debate about the potential impact of BlackBerry 10 during TheStreet's live blog of RIM's second-quarter results, with commenters clashing over whether the new OS can turn RIM's fortunes around.

    Some 57.42% of respondents to TheStreet's recent poll on the subject said that RIM will find salvation in BlackBerry 10. Just over 33% of respondents believe that this is unlikely, noting that the company's problems are too big.

    Considering TheStreet has been extremely negative towards RIM/BB10 since they're Apple fanboys. This is actually very good news.

    If 60% give it a chance, that means 60% of consumers might too and that is good at this point in time.

    `we got a sneak peek this week` erm, guess you missed the gazillion videos on youtube over the last few months then lmao. i know having `hands on` time is better than watching a video, but to make out like you`ve only just seen it is either foolish or naive imo
