Hi as a playbook owner since day one 16GB,and have seen it get better with updates, I think it is a quality device
that is Underrated and little advertising in U.K. My friends only know Apple/Android tablets, if you ask for one in shops they try to sell other makes and Blackberry is not worth buying, and price has dropped £149 for 32Gb
version, I now have a second playbook at this price, the new 4G looks good but no 4G here and wi-fi is ok,
I would like a BlackBerry phone to go with playbook but the present ones do not appeal I'm not having a go at
Blackberry, have seen German video 4 minutes, of a BB10 phone and it looks very good, no keyboard but not
a problem, watching the video this looks familiar webOS/ n9 Meego,[ I have and use both systems/phones/ Tablets, being a phone /Tablet addict I have and use all O.S. Systems will try anything,]
and looks like the best bits of webOS/ Meego and why not, I would buy it today as it looks the best BlackBerry phone
I have seen, it needs to be on market now ,this phone could save Blackberry,but next year will be too late
most buyers will not wait and the rivals will take customers away from Blackberry, HP Touchpad was launched
not finished but one month later problems mostly solved, then dropped HP madness, so if phone is launched with a few problems and they promised to quickly solve them most Blackberry owners might be ok with that?,
if the phone matches the quality of playbook then what a pair to take on the rivals,
will remain playbook addict what ever happens.
Great post. Your right the last thing we need is another debut like the PlayBook. If that happens its curtains for the first BB 10 device. I like you, am looking forward to BB 10's release, but I am concerned about how much interest the general public will by then.
Hi, Ice 2921 thanks for your post, I like this site as people are polite with reasoned Arguments, unlike some, and I am registered On a lot, BlackBerry must. Advertise and not Forget the UK. My seven year old granddaughter had playbook worked Out in a few minutes compared to my Android one, and. My 10 year old granddaughter wants a BlackBerry and all her friends as well,
The BB10 phone would be well received by them as they like using my Nokia N9 / HP PRE 3. Phones, they are future customers for
That is great to hear. It is interesting that you say RIM's advertising is not that good in the UK. I was always under the impression that they were doing really well in the UK. It good to get information from folks that are actually there. Thanks for sharing.

the curve phones are popular as they are cheap and BB messenger is included in plans and costs Very little, so the young buy them,
RIM have being advertising the phones in the UK with adverts and also sponsered tv shows and and partnered with Sky Atlantic a tv channel there has being Zero advertising of Playbook though

sadly RIM's Marketing practices have regularly been an issue for them i suggest hiring some new heads to look at where the department could innovated and become more efficient or at least better at displaying the useful features of their phones and differenttiating themselves from the competition. So they Can sell more phone and get back on topp!! GO RIM
