I am looking for some LOVE with regard to the S2. With less than nine months left on my contract I would very much like to continue and see support for the Storm platform. I don’t want to go back to a slide out, lift up, push over, clip on anything. I just want a solid working kicka….business and personal tool that is bug free and feature rich based on hardware and firmware capabilities.
With the holidays coming up and increased commercial exposure of competitive devices we need to see something HOT coming out from RIM. Stock pricing reflects the timing of these efforts. I can live with tethering my S2 to the new Playbook and wait for a robust solid S2 or whatever the new one is going to be. I don’t think people will be able to afford multiple new products hitting the street at the same time…. Or would they….
funny thing.... I still have my ORIGINAL S1, still works, still not getting much love from anyone except a few hybrids here and there.

If RIM were smart, they'd realize there is a loyal customer base out here, but turning their backs on us won't help their bottom line.
RIM is banking on the idea that people get bored with a device after a month or so and want something new. This is not always true and I'll tell you how I know this; I work on cars for a living and even though there are new ones coming out all the time, I still work on ones built in the 50's and 60's on a regular basis.
Truth be told, I'd rather spend my money on something that works, lasts and can still be used later if i want it to. I really don't like being forced to "upgrade" just because the manufacturer refuses to support their own product a month later.
That's exactly how I feel.

This is great news. I'd happily dish out money for this. If its built as well as it sounds, and judging by the QNX specs and reputation, IT WILL! This technology is the iphone/android killer we've all been asking for.......for years. As for fixing the current and old device bugs-Im living with my 9530, and I'm still pretty content with it. I don't think they should spend much time fixing our old devices, its nice when we get an update or leak, but I'd much rather them just finally put out something solid. I really have faith in RIM taking this jump and I think we are all ready for it. As long as it runs as smooth as those videos they had playing at DevCon, I don't believe that was the actual device or OS at all........

I'm done waiting on new os's. I'm a 9550 user and feel like i got shafted with bbos6.
you did but fear not; when these QNX devices come out the shafting will most likely continue. so the new guys wont have anything on u for too long.

Actually RIM is better than Nokia and their Symbian line; they never upgrade to the next OS version, never.
How much longer can we wait till QNX makes it way to BB devices. Will it be on new devices models or more Refresh devices on the way? i dont mean to brag but Either way i do not care how much it costs with two paychecks i got myself a new blackberry. OS 6 seems impressive but that just something ill pass on. RIM Give us FANS Specs,prices, a date on this so called QNX based OS.
