    So, with BB crashing and burning, the Z10 failing, Q10 doing <Okay, the new market share numbers were released! WP up 3% to 5.6% BB not up/down, stuck at 0.7%. So, with this news, people on crackberry are leaving. Then, the BB diehards say that "Apps are repackaged web sites, who needs them?"

    ITS THE DEATH OF WEBOS ALL OVER AGAIN!
    Lets grab some popcorn and watch the little John boat sink. (I was going to say Titanic, but BB does not deserve that tile just yet.)

    I hate to rain on your parade, but as much as I want WP to succeed, I also want BB to survive.

    Also, if BB plays their cards right, they'll survive. Just like HTC. Or Nokia. Much like WP.

    I honestly want them to survive.
    To the people over at Crackberry, have faith! You've stuck with RIM/BlackBerry this far, and you're going to turn back now? This is just one quarter, BlackBerry can survive for years on their cash pile. Just look at WP. Whatever success it has now did not come overnight. Just have faith.

    Now, I would've gone to Crackberry to post that, but I'm stuck on the WPCentral app.

    Also, Faith is not only for the Transient People, if you know what I mean.

    I'm a windows phone lover but I'd love to see blackberry survive as they're certainly more innovative than android or iOS. Put that software on a better looking phone and I might have a secondary device.

    I'm not fond of buyout rumors but it may be getting time for MSFT (possibly Nokia as well) to make a run at them before someone else does.

    Runs QNX and utilizes the Linux layer to use android apps. It's gesture based to the extent that it actually improves on an amazing OS like Meego, it's generally good... Just immensely ugly.

    Uh oh you don't want to bring over the Crackberry masses who will tell you that BB10 is about to conquer the world!

    Even here in Canada I don't think there is much buzz about the Z10. I have honestly seen more 920's in the wild here then I have Z10s.

    The z10 is just an ugly and unimpressive device. Trust me, I really wanted to like it.

    Unfortunate news. It's looking pretty dire. But at least their market share didn't drop. They can't afford a drop.

    I don't think it's ugly. I just found the Hub to be cumbersome and unintuitive for my needs. However, I don't use "communication" as my main smartphone usage. If communication were my major interest, the z10 might be more useful to me.
