    Call menu.



    Live tiles.

    credit to Crackberry.com for the images.

    Mmm other screens look normal Blackberry like but you can feel the "inspiration". Can't say I hate it though, the Call live tile giving last card information is a great idea =). Can't wait for Apollo to blow his wannabes to the sky =D.

    I've never liked Blackberry, they intimidate me with all those buttons but that call Menu looks spectacular and Tiles + Background also look great. (if a bit samey)

    So I wonder how long after they launch before Microsoft sues RIM out of existence?

    I don't think Microsoft will sue. They look different enough.

    If those tiles update a lawsuit will ensue I can guarantee that.

    Those are also rumored to be fake too...

    I wouldn't start basing "copy-cat" remarks off 1 screen. That screen with 4 icons could be a "task managing" screen. Who says that is a homescreen? (if it is a legit picture...)

    Why? Did "Live Tiles" come out before Widgets? ;)

    Because they are square? lol, yeah those update but Microsoft didn't invent tiles, they have no right to sue.

    Being a former BB guy I truly hope this will make RIM stay afloat. I always liked the BB OS, but AppWorld Apps when You are outside US, where simply not existing. Even Marketplace has a Gazillion times more apps in Danish, or even just Danish content. So if they get better app development, it could be a nice alternative.

    I was a long time BB user, first a Curve, then a Bold, and then the Torch. It broke my heart, but I eventually made the switch to WP7 because I grew tired of the various "aggravators" that were noticed too often in BB's OS: The hourglass of death, battery pulls, reboot when installing new apps, and lack of 3rd party app support.

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my WP7, but there are times where I miss my Blackberry. From what I've seen of the new QNX based OS, BB seems to be making vast improvements. But I feel this might be too little too late (they recently lost their spot in US marketshare to Windows Phone). If I were given a BB10 device, I'd definitely give her a test drive. However, I cannot see myself risking my upgrade on one.... I'll be upgrading to WP8.

    Saw the leaked hardware images. Looks like the demo for developers

    It doesn't look like BB10 is anything like the earlier leaked images. Some pretty cool features.

    Bb10 looks like a swipe fest. Too many steps to get something done imo.

    Blackberry is in a coma on life support, and I think it's time to pull the plug.

    *sigh* You're probably right, but I'll always have a soft spot for it.
