    • oneinfiniteloop: IMO, it presents a cohesive story of a mobile devices use.

    • oneinfiniteloop: Seems like the video is touting features which Blackberry hasn't talked about yet. Jan 30th launch will be very interesting indeed.

    • turtledividend: $BBRY bb10 is somewhat of a hybrid phone. A bit of $MSFT window tiles and Apple's skeumorphic icons which is a bit daft.
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: yeah, but the features that it offers is simply compelling @turtledividend. Just look at this video: http://bit.ly/VOwjOA

    • oneinfiniteloop: Sorely missed these videos on our beloved $NOK. I think $BBRY is going to cause people to turn their heads around.

    • oneinfiniteloop: All those guys who are singing are execs at $BBRY. Chris Smith looks a lot like Steve Jobs :)

    • turtledividend: I've seen the product infinite, not my taste. Hope it sells :)

    • Eld: wow the BB10 has been inspired by Jolla too!
      1/11/13
    • turtledividend: I know you meant to say Symbian :)
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: Oh, wasn't aware about that Eld.
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: @turtledividend, $BBRY's CEO has made it clear that his focus is on the Enterprise and I think BB10 goes a long way along that route.

    • turtledividend: Simplicity is the key factor reason apple and windows will continue to grow. You can also add Linux to that list, complicated.
      1/11/13
    • Eld: I was not either, but look at the home screen, looks a lot like Sailfish by Jolla :) but BB10 seems poor in terms of functions though
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: Eld, do you have some video link to Jolla? Would like to watch that.
      1/11/13
    • Eld: Have a look at that :) http://bit.ly/SJbJyB

    • oneinfiniteloop: Watch the demo of Jolla here: http://bit.ly/ZOvs62 If you look you see the device has Nokia written at the top on the device!
      1/11/13
    • Eld: Nice Jolla commercial: http://bit.ly/UTgmLe
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: Very nice commercial, now that I saw what Jolla is the commercial makes absolute sense. Why couldn't $MSFT get this into Windows 8 day 1!
      1/11/13
    • Eld: Jolla has clearly an edge on its approach of smartphone user experience. Wish I could buy a few shares :-)
      1/11/13
    • turtledividend: Because Nokia probably funded Jolla.
      1/11/13
    • Eld: @turtle: NOK kept all IPR related, not sure they funded Jolla. http://bit.ly/WVUlq1
      1/11/13
    • Eld: They probably funded partly through the Bridge program though. But Jolla raised EUR 200m end of 2012, and prob. no EUR 200m from NOK :)
      1/11/13
    • turtledividend: Correct, I based my assumption on Nokia's helping local business. I heart Nokia: )
      1/11/13
    • Eld: Jolla is more than a local business :p they have tight links with China mobile, and are the former MeeGo crew!
      1/11/13
    • turtledividend: Understood, meeGo to bathroom now :P
      1/11/13
    • Eld: lool

    • Charles Santerre: I need to say it is impressive idea. How it will pan out in reality we will see. It may just be meh... or it could be the start of something

    • cheznazi: LOOL! They couldn't find a good looking developer from India so they used actor Shahid Kapoor! Haa!
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: @cheznazi could you provide a link where the YouTube video shows Shahid Kapoor being used as a developer by $BBRY?
      1/11/13
    • cheznazi: Same link provided by you @oneinfiniteloop. See video@ 1:35. Shows Shahid's face but the narration is "developer from India..."
      1/11/13
    • Charles Santerre: After I have had a few gulps of coffee, I think the video is pure celebrity glam. So the phone can record sound, accept text & surf big wow
      1/11/13
    • C.E.: Charles, this is celebrity marketing. Nothing unusual. Don't overestimate the masses, afterall iFans can be wowed by an extra row of icons.
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: @cheznazi, I don't think that is Shahid Kapoor; I bing'ed and compared it with the video they are two different people (I think :)
      1/11/13
    • zeeman1: Its SHahid Kapoor
      1/11/13
    • cheznazi: It's Shahid ma friend! I also think it is from that movie shot in Canada with Vidya Balan
      1/11/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: wow! I am still squinting my eyes @cheznazi :) Thanks.
