    Does the BlackBerry 10 delay launch to Q1 of 2013 affect your loyalty to RIM?

    BlackBerryOS Poll:

    On the tail of the bad news today via RIM's earnings call that we won't see BlackBerry 10 till at least Q1 of 2013, we are asking you as a BlackBerry user, does this affect your loyalty to RIM? Vote in the poll above!

    As BB site owners/operaters- a user too, does/will it affect your loyalty in any way?

    Haha, nothing will ever taint my loyalty to RIM. They have always treated me good, and I have too many friends within the company. However, it does make me doubt more than ever what will become of them. 6 months longer is too much time to wait with just OS 7.

    That's good to hear on it not tainting your loyalty to RIM. I feel the same way you do from that perspective. I wonder what will happen to them as well, I fear they will be sold or bought out. I think they should go private. If you ever visit Crackberry read the comments about this news, lot of ppl, loyal users are going to jumpship now, within their rights to do so if they choose. But in my opinion that's not true loyalty.

    Have to wonder if once BB10 is launched and hopefully successful, will Blackberry still be relevant in the smartphone world?

    I read that article. I think it's a bit fanboyish sounding, which is nothing wrong with that. But it doesn't address a lot of aspects that will be difficult for RIM, ie. such as how RIM is going to be handling the developer blowback.

    That was also a concern for me too Joe, BlackBerry developers will be looking for guidance and answers since the BlackBerry 10 has been delayed to Q1 2013.

    Thank you.
