    Competition Stealing BB10 Features

    I just read an article in UberGizmo stating that the BB10 lock screen feature has been copied for Android phones running Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich, the author described it as a cool feature from BB10. What's going on here? First iOS steals the BB10 virtual keyboard, now Android steals the lock screen feature. What next? WP8 stealing French Toast and Cinnamon Toast? Clearly RIM is bringing features to the mobile market with BB10 that are so fresh and cool the competition can't wait to steal them. Not bad for a dead company coming to late to the mobile party with DOA devices sporting outdated specs.

    iOS didn't steal the virtual keyboard.....an iOS jailbreak developer was the one that copied it

    Yea, any of these features being taken are going to be from developer mods. Still though, goes to show just how cool BlackBerry 10 is going to be and how it will be something new and fresh for the mobile world.

    I think its more along the lines of people appreciating the new innovative features of BB 10, so they make it work on their device. Its not the manufactures that are doing things like this, but individuals that want some of the cool features that BB 10 has to offer. If anything I think it just making more people excited about BB 10.

    That's So True

    @tinysalmon: That's so true. My gut feeling is that one of the big surprises on the 30th will be the release of the Aristo superphone to battle the up comming Samsung Galaxy S4. The dual core BlackBerry Z10 running pre-release software already distroyed the iPhone 5 running iOS6 in a head to head comparison and it also beat the GS3 in browser loading speed. Samsungs latest ad bashing Blackberry is an indication that they're worried about the Z10, just imagine how they would feel about the 4.7 inch quad core Aristo (V10 perhaps?) running final BB10 software. Like I said, it's just my gut feeling.
