    What If BlackBerry Had Released OS 10 Two Years Earlier?

    Do you think it would have made a difference? Given the fact that BBM has turned out to be such a cross platform success (Hello to all of the new Windows Phone BBM users) and the recent admission in the NY Times that the founders of WhatsApp still own and use BlackBerry's for texting; would a release of the Q10, Z10 and Z30 had a bigger bang if they'd been released in say 2010? Would BlackBerry still have a bigger share of the smartphone market had they not insisted on using older phone model lines and BBOS for two extra years?

    What say you?

    Not if they released unfinished. But if they released it at a OS 10.3 level, then I'd say it would have been a completely different outcome.

    Agreed. Even if it had been at the 10.2 level with the ability to side load Android apps it would have helped BlackBerry to maintain it's foothold.

    We'd still be waiting for Verizon to get out of 10.1...
