Just watched 3 bids on bb10 and I'm going to have to pass. If I want to swipe all day I will just play fruit ninja. So far it looks like a lot of extra steps to get something done. One of the main things I love about WP is that everything is in and out. Quick n easy.

Anyways, you're missing my original point, I think. Otherwise if you got it then man, I don't know you got issues in wanting to defend any platform or prove someone "wrong". All I said was that BB10 reminded me of WP, more specifically an element of BB10 (active frames) reminded me of Live Tiles. In terms of just speaking of things on the surface, which was my intent, I don't think that's an unreasonable assessment.
But nope, apparently a person just can't make a simple remark without needing to be corrected or speaking "blasphemy", if you will, about an implementation on a mobile OS. Instead the statement has to be nitpicked and reasoned out to show how "wrong" the speaker is because that person is allegedly ignorant about mobile OSes or the statement maligns the awesomeness of an OS. Reminds me of the stupid crap a few months back with the whole 920 8x comparison.
If you can't see the sheer simplicity of the remark, I find that kind of sad. In either case we can just agree to disagree or you can continue to try to prove me "wrong."

I don't have much experience with either Meego let alone BB10, but the first feel I got from the two images that the N9 image would be more of a multitasking screen, while the lower picture (I suppose it's BB10?) looks more like having widgets on the screen.

BB10 looks pretty impressive in the video. Very responsive and the features make it look more capable than Windows Phone in several ways. The email client certainly looks more robust than ours.
I don't know if RIM can pull off a miracle this late in the game, but I'll be watching them closely.
If nothing else, I welcome the competition. I think another OS that is that responsive and feature filled will help light a fire under Microsoft's *** to give Windows Phone more robust multitasking, email and features that appeal to enterprise customers.

Blackberry is probably the best OS for email.
But lets talk Peek.
On BB10 you swipe to the right from anywhere and get your unified inbox. Emails, tweets, Facebook etc. But, if like me you like only emails in a unified inbox and your tweets, SMS etc in their own little inbox then a further swipe to the right will show these.
On android the notification bar can be pulled down from anywhere also and all your notifications will be shown in only one swipe.
The android notification bar could be considered a form of peek also?
Both my android phone and BB have a notification LED so you tend to know whether you have an email or whatever before you peek. On my BB with the BeBuzz led application I would often know who the message is from if I have set colours for contacts.
Based on my use Android will seemingly get me to my notifications quicker. One swipe down as opposed to two swipes across.

I personally say yes, for a few reasons
1. Blackberry balance: before there was a problem that people that got a blackberry at work could not make full use of a blackberry because the boss blocked a few things. This problem is now gone, because bb balance lets you have two profiles : one that the boss can control and one for home. There are even two app worlds.
2. Browser: the browser is incredible. It has a a 485 /500 score on the html5 test which is the highest amongst mobile platforms.
3. Hub and peek: you can peek anytime into the hub, a unified inbox, even while in another app.
4.apps: rim is doing a lot to bring apps to the platform and it will have the biggest number at launch.
5. Keyboard. All those that have to type a lot from their phone love blackberry full touch and qwerty keyboard. Its simply the best
6.small cool features:. Camera app, pic destroyer on browser, etc
These are the things that'll bring subscribers back. I must admit that their biggest challenge is marketing but i think their new cmo knows what hes doing
