    This list is for things that you wished the older java-based OS had, and not BB10.

    1. a revamped JVM, preferably based on QNX's, that allows for significant performance improvements such as ability to delete or upgrade a program without the whole phone bogging down or needing a reboot.

    2. Third-party application data backup. Developers may need to tweak their code to take advantage of this, but basically allows you to backup and restore third-party app data.

    3. Widgets. Even if they were simple html5 widgets that ran in an app of it's own (but preferably with a quick-launch shortcut, such as pressing End twice.

    There is no OS8 or OS9, namely OS8/9 is for the Playbook only.

    The next mobile will use version 10 based on OS 8/9 Playbook QNX OS.

    This OS10 is giving Blackberry a headache in what features to provide, and it may or may not be able to be put on the last 7.1 capable phones {BOLD4 9900/30/81 or 9800 series}, as it was planed for the Bold4 last December 2011.

    OS10 is for QNX CPU systems only, so only current 7.1 phones such as the BOLD4 could get such update to OS10, if the feature set would allow.

    See RIMs' press release on Youtube and Blackberry USA website about the Berry10 Worldtour 2012.

    No current devices will get BB10. This has been mentioned repeatedly already. If you want BB10, you will need to get a new device.

    BB8 Was PlayBook OS1 and BB9 is PlayBook OS2.

    The new phones will be BB10 and the PlayBook will also be updated to BB10. BB7 phones will most likely get 7.2, 7.3 etc updates.

    Think of it like Android; Android 3.x was a tablet only OS, there were never phones running on 3.0 or 3.1. Much the same way that BB8/9 are tablet only and phones will never run it (with the exception of the dev alpha device which is theoretically running a type of OS9).

    Even though I have a BB 7.1 device I hope that they don't do much more with it. It will never be able to be as fast as Ios or android. The OS is just too old. I don't think 7.1 is great but I would prefer see a more polished bb10 when released then OS 7.2 or 8 update, for example.

    there will not be an 8 update they will only do 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, etc but they will not be like BB10, and 7 will not get the BB10 update.
