    Ask this question on WP central, the answer is a WP device.

    Ask this question on crackberry, the answer is a Q10.

    My advice, try both. Go to the stores, play around with them. Watch youtube videos about the OS's. Decide what is most important to you. Then buy one that fits your life the best! :)
    In an ideal world... I would have the Q10's keyboard and LED, Lumia's PureView camera and wireless charging, a colorful mix of the BB10 Hub (mainly for organizing notifications) running underneath Live Tiles, BBOS settings control, and SkyDrive and desktop Outlook sync with full local back ups.

    At this point, I am in a mental debate on whether the Hub (software side) is more desirable than the hardware gains on a Lumia.

    Okay- just so you know, I am an AT&T user still on WP7, so I am giving advice strictly as a WP fan who loves the OS. Also, I am a HUGE fan of BB10. I just think it is an amazing OS.

    [...]

    -The main reason people are steering you to the 928 is long term satisfaction. The screen is better, the camera has been a complete winner, and for the price it will hold up well for two + years. The 822 has the 2 year ago screen resolution, a okay camera, and may not be as nice in 18 months depending on usage. However, if you cruise the 822 forums, users love it. It has sold surprisingly well on big red, and the removable battery, expandable memory, and interchangeable outer shells make for a functional and fun device. I would not stop you from buying the 822 if it appeals to you. Just know the 928 is premium.

    [...]

    Let us know what you decide!!
    I am not so much worried about syncing as I am where that information will appear. Seems like most of it works itself out in the cloud.

    Your explanation for the 928 is particularly good and I think that distinction between a premium device and a quality device (read fancy versus durable) is what I needed to know.

    As far as the device comparison goes, I have held the 822 and Q10 in my hands but not played with them so I know both, or all three, are excellent devices. Being a productivity or timely and web surfing based user I would say screen size doesn't matter and growing pains won't bother me as long as the basics are there. [EDIT: Things like BB10 not having Speed Dial or WP8 not having Paste to Dialer will definitely irritate me.] Leaning to Windows Phone, I do so because of the unity I would have between all of my devices.

    Oh and I just found out about this [http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-phone-8/232113-possible-features-coming-wp.html].

    Its like comparing apples and mangoes, Q10 is a BB OS
    822 n 928 are WP8, 822 is older and looks pale (to me)

    As of now, the future of BB is uncertain.

    928. There is no guarantee that BB will be around for another update.

    Ya, I did see that after as I navigated to the link first but I guess the point still stands. I guess I should ask this then, does Windows Phone have any real aspect missing that would make one stop and think?

    Whether or not BB will be around, the updates they are pushing out for BB10 do look promising. Actionable notifications got my attention along with the Hub being opened up at some point in the future. If there was something equivalent in Windows Phone I think this device war would be settle right there and I would go pick up a 928 "tomorrow" (read near future).

    This is the perfect thread.

    I'm considering a iPhone 5 or a Blackberry.

    The blackberry is in the same position as my Lumia when it comes to apps. However the Blackberry offers notifications I so want, and a notification light. Plus it's something different.

    I already use a iPhone 4S as my daily phone, so already know all about the iPhone.

    You went from the 928 to the Q10?

    Not exactly, as I still have that WP I bought. I won the Q10 I got, probably the only circumstance in which I could justify owning one, and it has a Hub.
