    As it is, and has been for years now, anyone not using a BlackBerry downplays its significance in the mobile space. They simply don't get what makes a BlackBerry so special in comparison to other phones. Granted, the hardware and software has let us down quite a bit, but with this Dev Alpha, software and hardware are a very solid union. The upgrade to BB10 down the road would be a bonus.

    With that said, if you're willing to stick with your BB5, 6, or 7 phone, or purchase a BB7 phone, you should certainly be more than willing to pick up one of these. If for nothing else, you should be willing to buy one just for the vast superiority to our current BlackBerry models.

    Right, OS 2.1 is complete enough to make a great device. Albeit, it's not going to be BB10, but that's the point. It would be a great phone to hold us off for the next 6+ months.

    No way.

    The PlayBook OS is NOT a 'BlackBerry' OS. There's no deep-linking of apps and that BlackBerry experience that they are working to bring to BB10.

    Sure, you'll probably be able to upgrade down the line. But I really don't think there would be any benefit to owning a BBPB phone. I have no doubt that I'd end up sticking with my 9900.

    In essence, it would be a fully working Dev Alpha. You can't tell me you would rather use your 9900 over that, would you?

    If that were the case, I might as well have a Droid. At least I'd have notifications from Twitter.

    Seriously, I cannot imagine tolerating the PlayBook OS on a phone. I would almost definitely stick with my 9900.
