I send and receive dozens of emails daily and am constantly on Google Talk and BBM.
I just wish they would improve the OS and HW specs on a Bold 9900 type device instead of trying to clone the iPhone.

That's pretty much it. The last couple BB OSes tried to support devices with physical keyboards and buttons and full screen devices and failed. It seemed schizophrenic and did neither really well (should a menu come up with a key or a gesture or both? etc). We saw exactly the same schism with Android until they effectively made it a touch OS that you happen to be able to use (one of the few remaining) devices with a physical keyboard. To have a consistent UI you need to pick a direction. If they try to shoehorn full support for both traditional BBs and touch based BBs they are going to continue to have UX failings.hakira wrote: ↑May 1st, 2012 1:22 pmBut you can't do android/iphone things unless you have the screen real estate, even the iphone's 3.5" screen is not big enough for people now. BB tried to have the best of both worlds with the torch and failed miserably, you really do have to pick one or the other (hardware kb or big screen).

i'm excited. ditched bb for iphone, but this excites me.
it was always the little improvements and the subtle-ness of changes that go a long way. swiping to delete or swiping to get to numbers/symbols, that time travel camera app, those are pretty solid innovations.
yeah its borrowed a bit from everything, ios, wp, playbook. TATs capabilities coming through finally though.
