I don't think those specs are going to help them sell cell phones. Blackberry are out of the game unless they get rid of that operating system. We've got alot of operating systems out there and we don't need another one.If they were to sell those phones TODAY, then BB could be back in the game and be the nr 1 contender, but since they are earliest coming out next year it might be the Z10 all over again, with a phone that would have been great 12-18 months before the launch date, but because of the 12-18months have passed it hardly makes a blip on the radar.
Try running a Pentium-MMX at 200Mhz... then it's hard on the ego to realize that the average toaster oven has more processing power than your desktop computer.In all seriousness, they need to work on this NOW if they want to actually have a worthwhile release, rather than the typical faffing around for two years doing nothing and making vague statements about what's under construction. Either get the cutting-edge tech out while it's still cutting-edge, or get rid of it NOW and move on before you release a product two years late into a market that's already passed it.It would be hard on my ego if there was a cellphone with a faster CPU than my computer
With their latest software release you can load and run 95% of android .apk on your BB phone anyways. You could make it look just like android if you wanted to. Not to mention their BB 10 is more secure with the granular permissions controls, available encryption standards, and separate business profiles.I would not be happy nor will I convert unless the BB device runs Android; either dual boot or ditch BB 10 is acceptable. With ditching of BB 10 prefered.
