ya but if you are in a corporate environment that still requires BB, then this is a most welcome upgrade.

A lot of the BlackBerry fans around me have switched to iPhone or Android. I say it's too late too, and without the physical keyboard I see no reason to get a BlackBerry. That shade of blue reminds me of Twitter apps.

So let's stop innovating because something is defined as 'late'. That's a great mentality. I guess Apple should stop refining they're maps app because a proper release would be late. Also, you're going to base you decisions on a product because it is late? If any company comes out with a new, innovative product why not critically appraise the product instead of focusing on an irrelative factor such as the date of release.

Is that the final design of the phone? Is that a case?

That's a developer device that has been seeded to app developers so they can test they're apps prior to the launch of BB10. Thus, it is not the final hardware.

LOL at "too late" comments, I won't even waste my time.

@wwedx: That's not the final design. It's the Dev Alpha that was sent out to developers so that they can test their apps on an actual device. The real devices will be announced Jan 2013.

Can't wait to see what they have in store.

Much nicer then WP8 for sure. Looks like a good device, however, my HTC Desire HD can do all that and more, in a superior fashion. I see no need for android users to consider this device. It does trump WP8 tho.

Really hoping they'll do more to incorporate android than what currently exists on the playbooks.

So there are no navigation buttons? Is it just gestures like the PlayBook? I don't know if this will work out, since the PlayBook barely recognized my gestures

The problem is innovation and features only go so far. Case in point, Windows Phone, definitely some innovative features over the last few versions but still no big market share. What sells is, as I hate to say it being an Apple user, marketing and perception. The perception is already out there that Blackberry is the old guy in the market and people are starting to move on since they can get the same functionality and enterprise support elsewhere.
